Not that it matters, but HOW did I get another -1 karma?  LOL  You don't like the TRUTH?

Some bad ass quote function usage right there.  Went back to 2013!  Finding stuff on this board? That would have taken me close to an entire work week.
Ha! Actually when you can click on someone's profiles you can view only their posts, which made it fairly easy.

Not that it matters, but HOW did I get another -1 karma?  LOL  You don't like the TRUTH?
After a certain number of posts (I forget how many) other posters are allowed to give + or - karma to others. Don't worry BantamMom, I threw you a +K, so you're back on the positive side! Also, I can verify that's the same chalkboard photo that a Trinity coach shared with me several years ago after the incident took place. Even smart kids do stupid things.

Question for the off-season: if the three Maine teams combined forces to take on Trinity, what would the betting line be?
I'd take Trinity -10 even if Bill Walsh was calling the CBB offense and Belichick was calling the defense.

UNDEFEATED SEASONS - 1911, 1915, 1934, 1949, 1954, 1955, 1993, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2008, 2012, 2016

I hate to burst your bubble, but nobody in the nescac is that much better than the field. If you take Bates and add a few quality players from Bowdoin, then grab a few quality players on Colby, you would put together a 75 player roster that could compete, if not outright beat, any other nescac team. And even you could coach them to those wins. lol

Thatís a good one.  A CBB team would be lucky to be .500 against the Other NESCAC schools.  Not enough talent on those squads to compete even when combined   And they donít know how to win especially when things go south.  Thatís the facts

Thatís just one of several issues there have been with Wesleyan.  The year that Trin beat the undefeated Wesleyan team in Hartford the visiting locker room suffered significant damage including a sink ripped off the wall. 

if you played all those games again, the results certainly would be very different.

I would say, if you played all those games again, the results certainly COULD be very different.

Found the message left by the Wesleyan team in the Trinity visitor's locker room - you be the judge which is worse, this or the photo of the kids in front of the scoreboard...

I have to disagree, I can name 5 Colby players off the top of my head from this year's team that would help make any CBB very solid. Left tackle Trevon who at 6'7" is destined to be the best OL in the nescac (may already be there), K/P Jon Baron, RB Jake Schwern, ILB Sebastian Phillemon (a beast on D), DB Don Vivien. Sorry for any mis-spelled names These guys can play for any nescac team, and most would start.

Speaking of Colby, how awesome is it that they have a frosh WR named Bernie Sander on the roster.  I gather he decided to give the "s" away in the name of socialism ...

Awww... no team-by-team analysis with your "power rankings" like you've done for every previous week this season?
That seems like an odd omission for the year-end edition. I wonder why? Haha!

Also, you forget to include this critical stat to your bio:
Nescacman career record picking the Trinity - Wesleyan game: 1-4 (.200 winning percentage)
;D

A nice spot on Trinity's Chris Simmons who is one of the rare NESCAC players who has drawn attention from NFL scouts:

Ahh, you got me! Thanks for catching that.
I guess that makes his Trin-Wes predictions even worse!
