So 4-8 it is...
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.

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??
I swear there ain't no heaven but I pray there ain't no hell.
Maine Hockey Love it or Leave it
Jim Montgomery days until hockey.
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.
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 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.
