Colby Football:
"If Hamilton can go 5-4 beating either Middlebury or Tufts and Bates, I think Murray deserves COY. I've liked his coaching style since seeing him in his first year at Hamilton. It was immediately obvious to me that his players did not quit, and that's a big achievement to build a program around. Don't quit no matter the score, keep on grinding and good things will eventually happen. I just can't help feeling Tuft is going to have it's hands full with Hamilton this coming Saturday. I'm all in for the Continentals."

Colby Football, totally agree about Coach Murray. Someone on this board mentioned that he has been "overhyped" by some on here. Not true. He took over a trainwreck, and along with his staff he has quietly raised the bar at Hamilton, moving the program forward, sometimes with fits and starts. I've mentioned before that I regret that my son only got to play for him for one year. Murray is a solid football guy who treats his players with respect and dignity. It has probably taken them longer than they wanted, but this league is a very unforgiving minefield. Also, much credit should be given to assistant coaches Matt Wright, Jeff Friedman, and Terry Stanimer, holdovers from the Steve Stetson staff, who held the team together through the tumult of the disaster that was the reign of Andrew Cohen. It's great to see smiles on their faces again! If the Conts can win the next two games there's no way that Murray isn't Coach of the Year. If I know him he'll give all the credit to his staff and his players. It's always nice to see good people win.

Breakthrough win for the Continentals !

NBC93: There are many good culinary options within 10-15 minutes of the Hamilton campus. In the Village of Clinton, we always liked Altieri's which is a nice family place with many options, without breaking the bank.  There are many options along Route 5, both east and west of RT 233. Going east on 5 toward NewHartford and Utica there are several good places. Zebb's is a sports bar type of place with many screens and great variety of food options. In Utica, Delmonico's is an excellent Italian spot. Piggy Pat's just outside of Clinton is a really good BBQ option. A trip to the Clinton Cider Mill is also a must-see! Enjoy.

DC 53...guess you are a Hamilton follower.  Before the change in the schedule this season, I would attend the Hamilton vs Amherst game in NY.  Pick  up my daughter and her family....from Groton village NY...and make the nice drive via the backroads to the “village” where Hamilton College resides. Pass the town of Hamilton where another college sits...Colgate.  Anyway, after a nice lunch in the village, attend the football game. 
Hamilton will be a tough opponent this weekend for Amherst.  Hope both teams will be at full strength.  Will watch the game online this season.  Expect Amherst NOT to overlook Hamilton with a Little Three opponent next week...Homecoming weekend at Amherst. 

amh63, My son last played for the Continentals in the fall of 2014. I attended all 32 of his games, wishing that there were more! Long ago, I took the advice of a man with strong Amherst connections, as I continue to enjoy the back roads, "The Roads (sic) Less Taken". The scenic beauty of the areas leading to Clinton remain vastly underrated. When I traveled solo, I would always opt for back roads. I have great memories of my treks through NESCAC country.

I'm a little late making this post, but it was nice to see Nescacman show some love for the Continentals last week. As I drove into Willytown on Saturday morning I did see some flying barnyard animals(rhyming with big) fly by! And that was BEFORE the visit to the dispensary! Who knew that Stola would become Jerry Rice? He was really otherworldly with his 4 TDs. He was actually pretty well covered on three of them. He got Wesley Walker- like separation on the last one. Mamaron is an exceptional play action ball handler. Hamilton did a decent job against the run early, but once the QB/WR combo got going, we knew it was going to be a difficult day. NESCAC 1's analysis is spot on. I was thinking about the defensive challenge posed by Mamaron/Stola on my drive through the peak scenery. Ideally, you'd like to spy the QB, but then you lose an extra guy to help on brackets and doubles. Hamilton showed some punch on offense, with Kagan and Gray prominent. Not getting a TD on the opening drive was a killer. Kagan is legit, he is deceptively quick, and he punishes tacklers. Even without Wagner and Schmidt, the Conts have some playmakers in the passing game, they just don't have as much elite talent. Hamilton is nobody's punching bag, and they'll have a chance to beat a top tier team with Amherst, Tufts, and Middlebury ahead.

DC, I bet you would have 195 years rushing against the Bowdoin D!!!

No matter how bad the Bowdoin D is, I doubt he could rush for 195 years! ;D


I might have some eligibility remaining, but lugging the rock for nearly two centuries is a bit too much to ask, even for a somewhat fit sexagenarian like me. As I've said before, Our friend, Nescacdude, needs better sources, and evidently, a better editor.

Dude, Hamilton didn't lose Joe Schmidt. (Unless he missed the bus to Brunswick) He's a senior.

Our sources in Clinton tell us he is injured and will not play for awhile...we wish him well.

Schmidt averaged 26 yds per catch today. You need better sources.

“Dude”, as most people on this board know, we are right way more often than we are wrong including coaching changes, players of the year, all-league and injuries...occasionally, we miss one...mea culpa if it affected how much you laid on Hamilton at Turning Stone....we had them covering with or without Schmidt...





Dude, the only constant in your posts is the  inherent pomposity and hubris, along with an unhealthy disdain for underdogs. That said, I look forward to your weekly picks. Btw, I never bet. I don't have enough money to waste on such activity, and I consider casinos to be the cesspools of a declining culture. I'll leave betting and fantasy leagues to  the NARPS and degenerates amongst us.
