Game notes are up.  Keyon Washington not listed in this week's 2 Deep, otherwise looks the same to me...

Keyon is listed in the two deep at TB.
I'm wondering when we might see a new face at TB although I doubt this would be the game for that.

Good to see Keyon playing.

The game is sold out. Richmond's 24th sellout in their seventh season at their new stadium. (Seats 8,700.)

Richmond is a 17 point favorite.

Sagarin ratings shows seven but you have to add three points because they're home, so about ten. Wonder if we have to stream it again ??

Coulda sworn when I first looked at the 2 deep Keyon wasn't on it.  Maybe a typo they fixed?  Anyway, glad he's playing.  

Parents weekend for the Spiders is why it's a sellout, they also struggle with student attendance when it's not a "event weekend."  Robins is a great on-campus stadium that's less than 10 years old & was not overbuilt (like the Kerrdome), looking forward to seeing it again.  

TV listed is a mid-Atlantic NBC station that doesn't show the game on their future schedule, so don't know what's up with that.  The Sportsbook line shows Gate +17, that's certainly what I'm expecting to get from my Spider buddies!

I believe the TV broadcast listed on the Richmond football schedule on the school's site is CSN (Comcast Sports Network, a local/area broadcast) and not NBC.  You have to be careful in selecting a link for sports schedules such as ESPN, NBC etc. because they don't always show the local stuff, just their own.   The school's Richmond TV is streaming it for $4.95.  WKXZ is doing the radio broadcast of the game, if you want Colgate announcers.

Richmond coach Rocco's weekly press conference.  Very complimentary to our team and coach Hunt in the first five minutes or so...

Curious, Steffen was defensive POTY projected last year before his injury, haven't heard much about him this year, is he nursing his leg ?

I had planned to go to Richmond this weekend, as I do any time the Raiders venture below the Mason-Dixon line. Hearing the game was a sellout, I called the Richmond athletic ticket office to make sure I could get a standing room ticket. I was told standing room tickets were not sold. Not only that, but I couldn't expect to buy a ticket outside as scalping is not tolerated. I was told Richmond had a page on Stub-Hub and that a week ago there were 19 tickets left, but they were likely gone by now. Sure enough, Stub-Hub told me that there were no tickets available for the Colgate game (although there were hundreds of tickets available for the Panthers-Vikings game). And it's not just because it's parents weekend - the ticket agent told me (and this was confirmed on Stub-Hub) that several Spider games this year were already sellouts! This is inane! What FCS program turns away fans? They should put more seats in or play the game in the old Richmond city stadium, where I last saw the Raiders play 20 years ago (Dick Biddle's first game). Someone posted it's great Richmond's stadium isn't "overbuilt"!!! Better overbuilt than underbuilt! Has there been another time in Colgate history, including when Andy Kerr's teams could pull in 50,000 in Yankee Stadium, where someone who wanted to go to a Colgate game couldn't get a ticket?? Who wants to sell theirs? I'll pay 10 times face value.

I did not have this problem at Yale last weekend, where there were over 50,000 seats available. That was the most dominating Colgate win over an established opponent that has given us plenty of trouble over the years I've seen in a long time. It reminded me of dominating wins over good Ivy teams in the late 70s and early 80s, such as Harvard in 77, Dartmouth in 82, and Penn in 83. A difference is that Fred Dunlap was usually careful not to embarrass Ivy teams he wanted on the schedule, and allowed a couple of TDs in the 4th to make the final score more respectable. Not much to add over what was already said about last weekend. Our receivers were terrific. It's been awhile since the secondary looked so good, and of course the run was stopped cold. Melville took a big hit in the second quarter that he shook off after one play; I thought it might have been bad enough to take him out of the game. I was surprised Melville was still playing well into the fourth quarter, and that Hunt called for a 40-yd TD bomb with 11 minutes left when we were up 30. Some Yale fans booed, and others we were close to said it was bad sportsmanship. I'm not sure I agree, but we do want a team like Yale on future schedules. Yale's loss tied with a UConn loss in the 90s as the worst loss in the 100+ year history of the Yale Bowl. Who would have predicted that our loss to Syracuse would be 16 points closer than our win over Yale?

Always great to see another thoughtful post from 'Gate 80. I salute his connection to the program on several levels : Despite his  geographic distance from campus (Davidson, N.C. ?), I believe that he gets to any game in Dixieland, all of the service academy venues, and a laudable number of Kerrdome battles; he has a remarkable memory for 'Gate football history from his era to date; and he has no hesitation to grapple with faculty and  administration politics which have, over the decades,  hampered our program and it's historic esteem.    I hope that we can all show a similar level of commitment on this Board as we move on to Richmond.      As an aside, I was at a football win by our RedRaiders at Davidson in 1976, and in the stands at the Yale Bowl last week. It has always been impossible to convey to an outsider, then or now, the uniqueness of the connection and shared spirit and pride of our alumni and campus family at those contests. I can recite countless remarks from friends and associates from so many "par" undergraduate institutions who admire, but are bewildered by, our joy in following out team decades after graduation. We travel well , and win all road game tailgate match-ups (especially at Holy Cross and Fordham). We have something to be envied and preserved : Football DNA.
