Seriously though, that game is going to be a bitch, even though it will be played before only 1,000 fans or so, half of whom will be cheering for Bona.

That stretch of Buffalo at home, at Vermont, at Northeastern and at the Dome to end the OOC is a bear.

That is likely the stretch that defines our season.

We should probably take this over to the Bona thread, Bill, but I'm not sure I agree. As good as this team could be, I still think they shoot themselves out of any chance at an at-large bid fairly early in the season. Just too many newcomers for me to feel confident against this schedule. I think conference play will defines our season, at least from a post-season perspective. I think it's either win the A10 tournament or we're looking at a CBI situation -- which I pray would be rejected.

I love the last sentence of the opening paragraph. Phil wrote that. He’s prepping SJ Hawk for another disappointment. I think that Phil has a Rolodex on his desk filled with excuses. For the millennial crowd you’ll have to google Rolodex but Phil is old school. I haven’t even had a Rolodex in fifteen years, but I digress. All this being said, it has been a couple years since Phil has had a good season so true to form he’ll rise to the occasion this year. The attorney that SJU hired from ND may not share Dom’s fondness for Phil.

Jill wants to win. She will do everything she can to help Phil do that. If he can't produce, she'll find someone who will.

I hope Dayton is left off because the Dayton fanbase will have, by far, the most entertaining meltdown. Mason fans will probably just shrug it off.
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha ...

This is original. Did you and Knobby work together on this one?

There will be a meltdown if Grant finishes 9th in this league with a senior (arguably an all league performer), two juniors, and two sophomores all returning as starters. I am on record saying Dayton is getting no respect in these predictions, but could care less if Mason is projected in the top 4. They haven’t won squat in this league. Despite your animosity for UD, I believe that UMASS can and should be a national program. They have the resources, the high major football program, and enough national recognition leftover to get there.

That’s a good thing. It’s about time that Phil is held accountable. Too many coaches in this league get too much leash. The Brian Gregory syndrome.

So did you know what a Rolodex was?

I believe I do. Why do we still have business cards in 2018?

That is a good question. My employer ordered me a box of business cards and all I use them for is to drop in fish bowls at sub shops to try and win free lunch.
Ha! I use mine to write other people's numbers on the back. Too bad because my business card is pretty swanky looking. Having business cards in a rolodex next to a landline is like having compact discs in the glove compartment of your car.
