At least you had a relatively short drive; mine was 6 hours out from Pittsburgh to Grand Valley, overnight at a "sketchy" hotel and 6 hours back to Pittsburgh. Hoping Stonehill-LIU Post turns out to be a great game (at least I'm not driving to Long Island for that one).
I can see Pace's position in trying to prevent a media circus, but that's going too far. I've seen FBS schools ban certain media outlets over stories that upset the program, but I wonder if the folks at Pace realize the damage they're doing with this action. A sports reporter from the Journal-News or other Westchester-area media outlets are going to remember this if a Pace sports team goes on a deep NCAA regional or national run.
It should be pointed out that Tracy had the wind at his back on his 52-yarder, but he cleared the crossbar with plenty to spare. When he had the wind, he also put each of his kickoffs well into the end zone. When he was going the other way, he did a good job of directing his kickoffs away from Post's dangerous KR, Malik Pierre. Tracy had a spectacular game overall. I see that he was named the NE-10 Special Teams Player of the Week--a well-deserved honor.
Paul, Merrimack played Bowie State tough.
According to your pre-season prediction (i.e., Assumption at #1 and Post at #2), next Saturday's Post-Assumption game is a key matchup in only the first week of conference play. It doesn't get any better than that!
I thought AIC landed that hotshot RB from Long Branch, NJ....I don't see him on the roster?

Paul: Although the season ended on a sad note for the Pioneers, their roller-coaster ride to the NE-10 championship is the kind of thing that makes fans like me wish that the new season could start tomorrow. There's not much else I can add in 500 characters or less, so I'll just say thanks for all you do on behalf of fans of the NE-10 and Division 2.
Well, time to cheer for our champ, LIU Post......
I think that you are going to see more of the same on Saturday. I am predicting a close game and hopefully, you will continue your good health.
Paul: My compliments on a great article! You hit the nail right on the head. One of the things that benefited me personally from the constant series of nail-biters was the fact that I survived the tension without my heart blowing up, proving that the surgeon who performed open-heart surgery on me last December did a damned good job!
That is why I used the word "could." Not sure how the criteria is being assessed right now but it is a possibility.
Bloomsburg defeated West Chester in Week 8, so any chance of West Chester vaulting ahead of Bloom is remote if the Huskies lose at Slippery Rock.
Ummm, any win would be an upset for Pace period. I don't see how Pace will upset New Haven this year thou. Remember when St. A. upsetted UNH on that last game, that was New Haven's second foorball season.
If Pace puts it together, they could upset someone. Remember when St. A won on the road at New Haven to keep them out of the playoffs. Anything is possible.
Hey Paul, what's with that 7 points for Pace? Just jolking. I think Pace will score more than 7 points aganist this New Haven's defense. I'm gonna said that Bentley is going to upset Assumption this week.
I kinna know someone who preferred to call it CW-Post instead of LIU-Post in this forum, lol. I still think it's very odd that they did everything else but not the end-zones.
