    I’m a 20 years + season ticket holder at Cornell, and I can’t figure out how the BigRed can still be in the top 20!
    They have been under achieving so far, and I imagine Mike Shafer would be the first to agree.
    The Pollsters had them ranked highly at the beginning of the season, and maybe they’re loathe to admit their mistake?

    UNH is sure impressive this year. What a turn-around from last year’s start. This BU Alum wonders where all the Dick Umile bashers are hiding right now.
