    It's a prime excuse to bump this thread, too.

    Congrats to 'Gate - looks like you guys won the recruiting battle for Abdoul Kouyate of Blair Academy, leaving Lafayette and New Hampshire to wonder what might have been.

    We have always done well recruiting from Blair. I understand the youngster is a fine prospect.

    For the better! The UNH announcer wouldn't be able to pronounce his name correctly.

    Sound quality and acoustics at the new UNH facility are first rate, from what I understand. I imagine even words otherwise unintelligible to the Granite State ear such as "Maine" and "William & Mary" will be understood without modification or translation.

    True enough, great video and second-to-none sound system. The only words I couldn't stand hearing at Wildcat Stadium last season were "Ibitotun-Hanks". After saying it 50+ carriers and about 1000 rushing yards, the public address announcer got that name down perfectly! (Albany RB)

    My pet peeve is the mispronunciation of the word "Lafayette." In yet another example, the announcer for a lacrosse game last week at Binghamton insisted on saying, "Lah-FOY-ette" or some such ridiculous thing. Durham is considerably closer to Québec than is Binghamton, so I imagine the UNH guys will have it down by the time we start the second half of our game.

    Lehigh does it to us on purpose, of course - constantly. But just imagine if you took a road trip down to Kingston, RI and they kept saying,"New-Hampt-SHIRE".

    Also - when you travel to Stony Brook, remember it's called "Lawn Guyland".
