Source,

Can't disagree with Rowan as the team to beat. Cortland is well coached and will always be in the game. I'm hoping that MSU will surprise a few people. I'm figuring we should win our first 2 games and a great test against Salisbury. Don't have a clue as to our QB situition and I wish I did. That will be key this year. Maybe it will be Hawkins. Watch out for TCNJ because they are always tough, especially against MSU and Rowan. They open against the Mules and with a win could become very tough.

LET'S  GO  MIGHTY  RED  HAWKS  !!!!!!!!

Buy the preview.  The NJAC has a few interesting twists this year.

Dave,

Just a few more days,  after that I may be even able to comment or add to a few things to you might read.

I'm gonna buy it too.  I got my NJAC fix, but want to check out the other teams.

Phil, RU has to be in the top spot.  Cortland hasn't merited a first place prediction until they do something within the conference.  Cortland's first game with the Port will give us an idea.  Sorry PORT!  I got to root for the conference member in the opener.  ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL??!!??

Finailly got my D3 fix today  ;D  Had to take the old people grocery shopping, so when we were done at 1:45 I thought I would drive by Sam Mills Field, sorry I mean Sprague field and there were the boys on the field and they had an inter squad scrimage. It was a little piece of heaven for 1 1/2 hours. Got to talk to some people and it was relly nice. Not bad for one week. Another 2 weeks under their belt and it will be time to rock and roll. Next Sat is a scrimage against Lakawanna. This was really nice. Now it's time to cut the grass  :(

Source,

That would be really bad news for Jon.  After getting royally screwed last year,  I hope it turns out to be just a sprain.  He is one of the good guys.

Sadly RU will be without Jon Berry and his superb talent this year at WR. Confirmed that he tore his MCL and ACL on the same knee in a non-contact 1:1 drill.
LONG LIVE THE BORO!

If you do ANYTHING, give it your EVERYTHING!

Gotta admit I am surprised so many people are picking Cortland in the top-2 NJAC.  From what I understand it was a very good recruiting year, but those kids will be green.  I think the QB Alex Smith is very talented and could step up as a sophomore, and Dustin Bowser at HB (I assume he is the camp front runner) is arguably better than Davis.  The O-Line is big and tough. 

It's the Defense which worries me, and needs the most improvement.  If you look at the 3 toughest opponents last season - Ithaca, Rowan, and Brockport - they all put up between 30 and nearly 50 points against Cortland.  A problem for 2 consecutive seasons has been the smallish corners and the secondary giving up long plays.  I understand they have some good looking freshman competing for those spots...but again they will be green.  I was also surprised to see Ithaca's front push around Cortland's front in the Cortaca Jug game.

If the defense is up to the task, I think a top 2 finish is attainable.  Otherwise we're a 3rd place / 4th place team again.  I'm cautiously optimistic going into the Brockport opener.
