Perhaps this is charitable, but the kids didn't look psyched up for this one.  That is a pretty poor Cross team and our guys probably thought they just had to show up. That is very nearly what they did. Very, very sloppy.  Melville didn't throw well, too many penalties and turnovers.  The defense saved our bacon.
To make a larger point, it seems that teams that were very good, returning lots of seniors the following year, disappoint. I remember the '04 team that had Jamal and others and that went to the finals, just didn't have it. We had lost some very good linemen, but had lots of skill guys back.
Similarly, this team was loaded, but the record is not what the kids or we fans had hoped for.  Losing to 'Cuse or Richmond isn't a problem, but losing to Cornell, with a big lead, it a huge disappointment. Maybe we were never going to beat Lehigh, but we left a number of opportunities on the field. I know that losing Holland really hurt, but we didn't run as well as I thought we would.  
Still some games to play and I'd like to see last year's team show up.
