Last time I saw any of General McClellan's boys, it was when they were hauling a wagon of wounded across my family's front yard. 157 years ago this coming weekend...

Or maybe it was 4 weeks later, my memory ain't what it used to be...

Re: The Offseason Thread

Excellent, my great-grandfather fought at Seven Pines/Fair Oaks. He was on the initial skirmish line, whether near the airport or up on the Nine Mile Road I do not know. He might have been in that cart. I don't know whether or not he was wounded there, but he received a medical discharge shortly thereafter.


EDIT: I left out the part that this happened 157 years ago this coming Saturday.

I'll be sure to tune into ESPN+ (assuming it's on there) for Fordham's NCAA game.
Fordham got placed 4th in the West Virginia Regional and first face WVU on Friday at 8 PM on ESPN3. I believe I figured out the difference between ESPN3 and ESPN+ and that is that 3 is free, while you have to pay for plus.

Other teams in that regional are Texas A&M and Duke.

I am sure there is plentiful opportunity to continue the Civil War talk now that you know the participants.

True. I am defined by my sense of entitlement.

It was not just losing, but who they lost to. They were eliminated by Richmond, after all.

Overall I think it was a good season. I went to a bunch of baseball games and I think they overachieved to win the regular season (although they won it pretty easily). They were young. Next year they should have a good shot at an at-large bid.

I made the 4 weeks comment because the Wagon may have been for 7 days instead of 7 pines...

Re: The Offseason Thread

Rumors are swirling that Phil Martelli will be an assistant coach for Juwan Howard at Michigan. That is so weird to me.

Heard a lot of those rumors too. What is the connection there? Howard would be wise to bring in some experienced assistants so this makes sense. Usually coaches bring in people they know so I dont know if Martelli and Howard have ever even met.

Re: The Offseason Thread

Phil doesn’t seem like the type to join a staff that will do P5ish seedy things. That said, it would be a nice, cushy gig for a year or two until Drexel, Delaware, Rider, or someone like that needs a new HC.

Re: The Offseason Thread

I just plain don't see assistant coach Phil Martelli. No way. Unless as BR alludes to, it keeps him close to the game for a couple years until an HC opening calls.

How many angels programs are there in Div 1 major sports?
Of course I'm jaded thinking this is a very dark, greedy, and self serving world. There are many good people, but event those have a small piece of the dark side.

There is that and also the possibility that Phil is feeling a little disenchanted.

Re: The Offseason Thread

My father went to Ohio State for his Department of Veterinary Science degree so it pains me to say that Coach Martelli is going to that school up north.
