    You can look that up.
    And to think this use to be hockey thread...just shows how the program and the man behind the bench has turned off the subject...well, will be glad when they hit the ice...for better or for worst.

    Really, keep that politics crap out of here. There plenty of places to talk about that, doesn't have to pollute this thread also

    I think that they're easily much better than that.

    Maine is just too pass-happy this season. They attempted 49 passes v. 19 rushes yesterday, and I'll bet that Towson (a good team, BTW) had 8 in coverage on almost every down. Ferguson threw for 401 yards, but was picked 4 times. You don't win football games that way.

    Jefferson's departure was a blow to the ground-game, but Reed arrived with a solid resume. He needs more touches. This offense is far too predictable right now.

    None taken. I wish there was something fun in regards to Maine hockey to discuss right now, as well. (...But, October is just around the corner.)

    Yet, cranky old man Wally was right; this is not the place for politics. It's bad enough to go there in any other context, let alone here. These days, I avoid that topic as I would a rabid hyena.There just isn't any point in doing otherwise.

    Get off my lawn.

    Nothing to talk about as far as hockey goes as no one has seen the recruits play yet. We all know what the rest of team looks like. Maybe someone will go to a captains practice and can fill us in? I used to try to get to a practice once and awhile but too busy now. Too bad about football team, I guess not many fans showed up to Alfond Stadium??

    Yes on that attendance figure...but got quiet after half-time as Towson took over, they were the far better team...no run game for Maine...while Towson's QB Flacco was the star of the game with his passing and running out of trouble at key times...they had a big and fast team and used that all game long tp punish Maine on both sides of the ball.

    I would be curious to know if anyone has stopped to wonder what this means for athletics, specifically whether the NCAA would continue to let all the campuses continue to field separate athletic teams: https://bangordailynews.com/2019/09/...-its-campuses/

    Also, the University of Maine is an actual research institution with some standards for admission. Lumping in the degree from that institution with whatever crayon-on-coloring-book-paper degree you get from UMFK seems to cheapen the whole thing.

    Towson was good this past year, so the result wasn't shocking. It's a pretty accurate cliche to say that the team which wins the turnover calculus generally wins the football game.

    All of that aside, Maine needs a win at Colgate.

    Having watched them both, I do believe that Maine is the better squad. The D is still the strength of this team, but Ferguson can't throw 4 picks and expect to win, even against them.

    I'ii have to go ahead and buy the BDN online thing. It won't break the bank at $7.99/month.

    I can't open that link, otherwise, and print outlets need some help these days, unless we're all going to get "news" from FB, Google and Yahoo, etc, who just feed us what their advertisers want us to consume.

    I'll revisit your link tomorrow. Thanks.
