    Joe –

    Thanks for pointing out Thomas Keith got his first start for Cornell. Pretty impressive for a freshman on a national finalist team! He has a great future!

    Compliments to Army for a terrific game plan and well played game. They would have been very deserving had they pulled it out which they almost did..

    What’s up with Hop? The offense has been horrible the last two games. They went about 15 minutes without scoring yesterday despite the score.

    Great environment in Baltimore yesterday. I really enjoyed the day. I would say I think a doubleheader is ideal. We wound up leaving at halftime of the ND-Loyola game for that reason which is too bad because under normal conditions I would have enjoyed watching the whole thing. Still, a great day of lax.
