    I think it will take a few years for McShane's people to fade out of the picture. He's done a good job of surrounding himself with people who follow his ideology and vision for academia.

    Yes, our facilities are bad, even for PL standards. But the announced new offices will help, assuming they get built. Throw in some other cosmetics (like chair backs throughout the grandstand, or an exterior stone facade for the grandstand, or end zone bleachers, or a second scoreboard) and we'd at least have a starting point to something. This is not the case for hoops where there is no starting point.

    The end game would be joining a conference that takes FCS seriously. Not one living through past laurels while trying to maintain ties with the Ivies. As for the administration, they might love their PL affiliation but alumni doesn't. Not by a long shot. Even so, I'm not saying we're leaving the PL. Instead, I'm saying we have a better shot of joining the CAA in football (and a spot will open once JMU leaves) than we do in returning to the PL for all sports.

    Maybe, but only if the new guy (or new gal) decides not to clean house.

    Now it's official. 8/24, in Hamilton... time TBD. Great game to start the year! https://gocolgateraiders.com/news/20...-schedule.aspx

    That is one early start! Not sure I'd want to start that soon. When does practice begin?

    Some restructuring of the offensive staff, Hunt will call the plays. Looking for a RB coach

    What is it with these new "positions" of "run game coordinator", "pass game coordinator" in addition to Offensive Coordinator...plus running backs coaches, QB coaches, WR Coaches, TE coaches...I think football has gone off the deep end with analyzing it's navel..or is it just an excuse for more job creation. This is freakin' football, not some critical analysis driven effort in quantuum physics! I see Lehigh doing the same thing. I guess all the coaches went to the same 'coaches clinic' and drank the cool aid or got the same 'cliff's notes' on "How to make our jobs seem more difficult" (so we can justify more money and our existence)....rant done. I feel better.

    Here is my two cents (having no insider knowledge whatsoever). I think Coach Hunt wanted to call plays. The OC's move to WR coach at Elon seemed a bit strange and the article about the offensive restructuring was effusive about the outgoing OC--which is pretty atypical for an article about a team's future. Since Hunt took over, Colgate's defense and special teams have gotten markedly better. Colgate used to not attempt field goals. Last year they went 15-17. Colgate used to fair catch every punt. Last year they AVERAGED over 15 yards per return. The defense ended up ranked #1 in the nation. The offense has been solid but is the place where Colgate can improve the most. Losing the top 6 receivers and one of the best RB's to play for Colgate will make that tricky to pull off this year, but the O-Line brings back four starters (one didn't play last year) and should be solid. Breneman couldn't feel his passing hand for the JMU game after getting a cortisone shot and I'm not sure it was fully recovered for North Dakota State--but he is primed to have a really solid season. Think giving coaches the added responsibility of run or pass game coordinator is a way to promote guys (while keeping them around a bit longer). It will also make it easier for Hunt to be both the OC and the head coach.

    Certainly all the rage. FCS seems to be mimicking FBS staff explosion. Just saw on scoop an SEC team is looking for a creative recruiting coordinator.ie an Art Director for team media recruiting.
    RGC. What does he actually do that the DC and other assts cant do to put an effective run D on the field?
    Ah well, Lehigh has one now so we are au courant with the new fashion. We damn well better have a much better run D.
    Caveat. I think we will because of the addition of Matt Borich as the DL coach not any RGC.

    Agreed. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw Borich added to our staff. Bucknell's D has been their only redeeming quality for years. Looking forward to 4/13 and the Spring Brown & White game.
