My 37th and agreed. Just cant get into it at all. If Frank were going to resign I would assume he would do it before Lehigh game a la his mentor, Bill Russo, in 1999.


I'm getting close to attending 50 L/L Games - I missed a few in the 90s and sometimes don't go when it is in Bethlehem so I'm not sure of the exact number.

Have to admit that beating Lehigh is (down deep) more important to me than PL Championships and Playoffs but I get why Championships and Playoffs are so important.  Beating Lehigh is more of an emotional thing i guess..

That first corporate job is important. The product may be mundane, but so are French fries. There is a lot of money in French fries, and in uniforms.
There's nothing bad about this.


You're missing my point and I'm not interested in rehashing it because I'm too excited about the big game tomorrow.

Seriously - it's FRIDAY - and all we've got to talk about is this?!

Which actually was kind of my point in the first place.

Word out of Woo is that Holy Cross folks recieved an email that Gilmore will be back for next year.  Thinking Frank will be as well.  We can all but guarantee an 8th losing season in a row, which has to be a new low for this program.

I will go in slightly late to avoid seeing any idiotic protest in the stands and leave early to avoid seeing disaster on the field.
I can't believe FT will be back. If he is, boycott home games.
Even if we somehow pull off a win, he can't come back.
The atmosphere on a good fall day early in the Lehigh game is too good to miss.

They also claim Pujhols will be coming back for his 7th season. (seems like).  I'm sure  Gilmore argued for a shot at 4 full seasons with his star player.   We will, of course, be starting over at QB.

Yes, he will be back.  I firmly believe he could've played after missing a few games, but was held out, or held himself out, because the season was over as far as winning the league. Impossible to prove, but just a hunch.

Pujals, RB Gabe Guild and OLs James Murray and Nick Piker have asked for medical redshirts.

Wow - so he may well leave HC having played in 48 fricking games...

That kind of goes against the spirit of the whole thing...

Whatever...

Pujals hurt in 2nd quarter of 4th game gets another shot. Brandon plays about 35 more minutes and does not. That's the NCAA for ya.

Yeah I'm not feeling it. Don't care. I'm thinking about work next week already and tomorrow is something "I have to do"

Listening to Coach Tavani's post game comments, there is NO inkling that he himself would ever consider quitting. "Ups and downs. Been down before, we can get back up"...

That does not sound like a coach who is looking to voluntarily step down. It would seem that the administration would need to remove the coach, but it also seems as though they do not have the stomach for this decision, so therefore, the committee.

Wonder if the people who ponied up for the $35 million in facility improvements are suffering from "buyer's remorse".

"I will coach until someone tells me to stop or I die " says all you need to know about what is going on in the Athletic Department- no accountability for performance. What professor would survive a success record like Frank's for their research ? Admittedly he had early success- but the last seven years including 3-18 the last two years ? I think this kind of dismal record is unparalleled in college sports.He is entering Tammy Smith territory.

As I said in a separate thread, he is either arrogant, delusional or has come unwound or all the above. What I want to know and asked separately is who created this monster.

He is now openly telling people he has tenure. If so, that is an insult to every professor who must face teaching evaluations from the students, perform research and publish in order to earn tenure. I am familiar with the academic departments at Lafayette. I am unfamiliar with the Department of Football. What academi courses does it offer?

Paging Amette Diorio the monster you created is off pillaging some village.
