Jarret & Stout showed some signs of life against BU. If the Hounds don't clamp down on Lindner and Klinewski we have a shot.
Need to get tougher and get the 50-50 balls.
Can we assume Boykins is done and will use his remaining year of eligibility at some other program next year?

Leaving soon for KSC and hoping its at least a game.

Was the worst gap in this game 37-9?
How is that even possible?
Seriously how in hell can a D1 team be trailing a mediocre league team by 28, in the first half?

What is your time horizon on that?

Not this year. Figuring on maybe beating American and Colgate, and stealing one more (really they are all steals now) , that only adds up to nine and that includes the Moravian win.
Maybe 10 by mid-December?
This team can't score or defend, or play for 40 minutes, or recruit, or develop players.
But it's a darn good thing that we have a great coach, right?
It's time for this era to end.
Lafayette can't compete in the Patriot League.

They battled back and showed heart. Like the freshmen. Nice crowd today that got in to it as we battled back to down 1 (down 28 at one point).

Before I agree with your last statement (and I'm almost there), I'd like to Garrettize all the teams and see what happens.  Garrettize the AD position, of course; but, really get  some aggressive young coaches.  These older farts are just cashing a check.  As I observed in the "whatever" section, if a consultant can call Harvard "lazy, fat, and stupid," where the heck does that leave us?

I'm with you. Great effort in the second half, especially by the freshmen and of course Nick's hot streak. Also credit to Klinewski who played with the flu. We are building a solid base for next year's team. Understand our incoming point guard lit it up with 48 last night.

The Jarrett kid has really shown some stuff in the last 2 games. Stout just seems to need a confidence boost. Cherry looks like he can adjust, but, needs some strength. We have no depth at the point and that wont change next year. We are also in need of quality numbers. The bench is short.
I am certainly not one to criticize because I have never played or coached at this level, however, judging from what I see from our league competitor, I scratch my head.
