Re: 2018-2019 Season

The thing I don't like about Corsi, PDO, etc. is that they're calculated at even or full strength. While maybe that's a better representation of relative strength, it completely removes having elite or poor special teams from the equation. Unfortunate. I also don't like the PDO because it makes the ...

Re: Head coaching options

If anyone is looking to wash away the taste of this season I highly recommend watching the Army Black Knights on December 8th against Navy and whatever bowl game they get into. I’ve become a fan this season watching them play, love the option offense and their grit and determination on defense. Yes...

Re: Game 11 (2018-19): New Hampshire

It's a very weird flex. You could almost imagine it scaring some people away from the game which is the opposite of what you would want to do. Why not add that there are plenty of reserved seats available. Someone called them out on this on Twitter. It should have simply been an announcement that G...

Re: Head coaching options

North Dakota State & South Dakota State are another two FCS teams that have performed at a high level despite being located in rural/nontraditional recruiting grounds. Eastern Washington & James Madison have some great teams too and are in rural settings, but they are in Washington and Virginia. Two...

Re: Head coaching options

Go after Maine's HarasmyiaK. If you can recruit winning players to Orono you should be able to recruit them to Amherst. Same could be said about Colgate's Dan Hunt who turned a 5-5 team into the #8 team in FCS. They were 9-0 with 5 shutout wins and an average of 3 points allowed per game before an ...

Re: Game 11 (2018-19): New Hampshire

My only complaint is that the canned music carries on too long, sometimes even after the puck has been dropped. All in all, good game for the pucksters. Keep it up! I tend to like the hockey playlist more than the BB and FB playlists. I just kind of wish they'd "read the room" more and turn down th...

Re: 2018 - Game 12: @ Georgia 11/17

This!!!!! We have no business playing this level. I guess it's good that we aren't playing at this level. Last time I checked we are not in the SEC. Way prouder when we were competing for national championships in the so called sub division. There's no guarantee that we'd be competing for national ...

Re: Total Wins

^ We'd lose by three touchdowns easily to those 2006 teams. We'd lose by even more to the current App State team. :oops:

Re: 2018-2019 Prediciton Thread

as we all know everybody loves a winner in Amherst - that bandwagon will fill up quickly. Everybody loves a winner all around the world. Is there even a large fanbase anywhere for a team that is perennially mediocre? Yes - Dayton..... I know they were Ok for a few years, but on the whole - a full b...
