    Re: CAA Thru 2 Weeks - What have we learned?

    I thought WM was overhyped in the preseason and should not have been preseason top 10, mainly due to question marks on defense. We lost six starters off an average defense, including two guys that...

    I've been camped in their front yard for 3 days and they refuse to come out! Whimps.

    Re: Calling out the Ivies

    Are you saying its okay to negatively impact small teams academically by participating in post-season play, but not a large team?

    If the post-season ban for football is based on academic...

    Re: Calling out the Ivies

    Really, do you think the football player at Yale and Harvard would find competing for a National championship "anti-climatic"?

    It's great the Yale-Harvard game is well attended and generates...

    Re: Calling out the Ivies

    If WM can compete if the playoffs (twice going to the semis) and maintain graduation rates in the 90%+ range there is no reason the Ivies can't participate. WM holds final exams before Christmas as...

    Re: 126th meeting between W&M and Richmond

    WM defense did about as well as could be expected last time out against UR. For WM to win, our offense has to be much better this time around. I think they will be and we make this a game. Here's...

    Re: Top 4 Seeds

    Agree with the original poster, I'm not sure why WM is seemingly out of the discussion for a top 4 seed. We have two road losses. One by six points to UVA and another by one point to UD. Since then...
  8. Re: "What is to be done???" Not Lenin, the PL version

    I'll admit to shooting a bit from the hip on Harvard. I knew Penn had a long win streak in the mid 90's. Guessing that the 1997 Harvard team is the one that stuck in my mind. Looking at the year...
  9. Re: "What is to be done???" Not Lenin, the PL version

    Scholarship offers are easily tracked these days via recruiting websites. If you're right and PLs are picking up recruits with CAA offers then it should be easy enough to point to some examples to...
  10. Re: "What is to be done???" Not Lenin, the PL version

    Good discussion. I was recruited by PL, Ivy, Service Academy, and CAA programs back in the mid-90s and chose WM. I took official visits to three CAA programs and two Ivies. I grew up in PA and...

    Re: New Hampshire @ William and Mary

    We were pretty banged up before and during the UD game, especially on defense. No excuses though, we were also flat and got pushed around by the UD OL. That said we are getting some bodies back now....

    Re: What happened to the CAA

    With respect to your 3rd point, I was very concerned when the PL decided to offer athletic scholarships and feared WM would lose recruits given that WM and the PL go after a lot the same recruits due...

    Re: What happened to the CAA

    Fair enough. From my perspective, UMass and Hofstra from 2002 to their departure were no better than current Albany and SBU. No doubt in my mind that upside of Albany and SBU are greater than...

    Re: What happened to the CAA

    1) Hogwash. The CAA managed to send two teams to the basketball Final Four in the same timeframe that JMU, UD, Villanova, and UR were winning National Titles. There is no mutual exclusivity here at...

    Re: William and Mary @ New Hampshire

    That's a fair analysis. Our defense to date has not been consistently dominant like last year. The defense has forced turnovers and come up with big plays, but also does a lot of bending. We're...

    Re: FCS Gameday's Preseason top 25

    To the OP's question. Yes, UR finished last year very strong and returns the bulk of their squad. They will compete for the CAA Championship and have top 10 caliber talent.

    Re: FCS Playoff Field

    I get its fluid and you are offering a snapshot. I think you gave a great synopsis. However, you list Towson as "In", which implies they are a lock. My simple (i thought) point, was that they could...

    Re: FCS Playoff Field

    Fair enough, but what is likely to happen and what can happen are different things. The scenario I laid out is not that improbable. Towson needs one more win to be a lock.

    Re: FCS Playoff Field

    Great read and analysis Supe. One thought, is Towson an absolute lock if they were to lose their final two games (WM and JMU) to finish 8-4, with loses to UD, JMU and WM in this scenario? If WM,...

    Re: FCS Playoff Field

    A 7-4 record in a 12 game season is going to make it near impossible. UNH will likely be up against 8-4 teams from power conferences for a spot.

    William & Mary Defense

    Those outside the CAA may not be aware of how the WM defense has been taking over games in recent weeks. WM has the top scoring defense in all of FCS on the season at 12.2 ppg. Here are the stats...

    Furman brings the their market as much as any FCS football/mid-major basketball program brings their market. The comment was made and received in the proper context.
