Thanks for the offer fellows but I'm not going to be a buttinski. I don't mind picking a free agent team after the draft. Please continue on with your draft as it is.

Agreed, Lumbercat, on how strange it will be to convert the visitors' stands to the home stand. But all the bleachers around and in front of the grandstand have been removed so the grandstand sits on its own and provides the only seating on what has always been the "home" side of the field. The bleachers in front of the grandstand have to be removed to accommodate the larger track. I assume that the bleachers on either side are being removed to enhance the look of the grandstand. As polbear73 has noted, the grandstand seats only 600 -- that seems about right to me from my memory of sitting there if not even fewer. The seating capacity on the far side of the field (where the Bates' fans have been sitting for decades) looks to be much larger than it is now, with a new press box at the top of the seating. It does look like it will be very nice after all the work is done, with the historic grand stand fully preserved. And I love the fact that the field will get a lot more use in the future.

Quicksilver-

Good points but I just can't agree.

For the sake of Bowdoin tradition, they should pull out the stands in front of the old grandstand that impede expansion of the track and simply put new seating aside the great HOME grandstand.........leave the visiting side as it is.  Don't vacate the iconic 100+ year home side of the P Bears. How can they change something so special......What the hell is going on down there?

Or, even better, before its too late, relocate the track and don't worry about changing things around to accommodate a bigger track. They have to replace the track anyway so move it over somewhere on the 35 acre Packard Field tract and dedicate Whittier to Football, Lacrosse and Soccer.

The Bowdoin home side with the iconic grandstand is like no other venue anyplace. As a competitor coming to Brunswick it was Bowdoin, it was very impressive, it was unique and defined their culture and identity.......how can they give it up and leave it as a cross field relic to their rivals?

To move across the gridiron and bequeath that venerable perch to the likes of Bates and Colby is a sacrilege within the Polar Bear Tradition! Without question the ghosts of Bowdoin Football lore are stirring in their graves tonight.......Adam Walsh, Jim Lentz, Jim Soule, Levitt, McCabe, Leclair, Leplaca.............Wouldn't want to be the messenger that tells those Bowdoin legends they are giving up their traditional home at Whittier and moving across the field away from the Hubbard Grandstand and one of the most iconic home sides in college football to the visitors side.

MM needs to have a squad and the 15-17 is more than fair. Call him up to the big leagues!  ;D

When do I pick? I got left off the list!!!


Actually I never even spotted the post for this league until it was too late and the draft had already begun. Maybe I'll do a free agent team just to see if I can beat any of you guys with the scraps you leave behind.

That surprises me. I looked back and I mentioned this last Friday in the afternoon. We were in the 9th round in the Early Bird Draft. So, you must have skipped right over it.

Anyway, bad news, I'm not going to get to my pick tonight. It probably won't be until mid-morning tomorrow. My apologies. Have a good night and study up!

 I suggest letting magic pick 15-17, then continue with NCF in round 3.

I wouldn't be opposed to this. But everyone needs to agree with this before it happens. So, if by chance, let's stop at the end of the 2nd round. Magicman would pick #15, #16 and #17. This means he's basically got the 1st pick before NCF. He'd get his 1st pick late but then his other picks would fall in line where they would normally be.

Have a good night. See ya tomorrow. Hopefully everyone will respond. If there's any objections, we'll leave magicman out until the end of the draft.

So Keelan Amelianovich and Ben Strong were both insignificant recruits.  Got it.  I suspect the coaches (and everyone else) would disagree.  A coach recruits for the future, which is NOT necessarily measured in a single year.
