This team definitely has potential to make some noise in the tourney.

Making a statement!
Why is it that this team so often plays a so/so 1st half and then comes out like a powerhouse in the 2nd half? It has happened too many times to be coincidence.
McCarthy makes half time adjustments, or, the bruisers in the pits just wear down the other team?
I think its is a combo of both things. Remember, earlier in the year we seemed to jump out to great first half and then fall asleep in the second.

I think McCarthy has this team believing and peaking at the right time! Honestly, my only concern is the kicking game - everything else has exceeded any realistic expectations I had.

Looking for a good match-up tomorrow. Ideally, would love to host Holy Cross at home. Other potential opponents are former NEC-foes Albany or Monmouth, or we could draw Villanova or Towson. I really doubt we have the resume for a Top-8 seed and bye to the Second Round, but who knows ...

Well...I don’t have ESPN3 but Addazio’s BC Eagles are on NBC and my sister went there so I’m pulling for BC.

Yes...The special teams collectively is CCSU’s Achilles heel.
I'm rooting for Addazio and BC to beat ND.

Also, a epic game at The Bowl in New Haven. Harvard 36, Yale 36 - OT

Protesters at halftime caused a huge delay. The sun has set and the stadium doesn't have any lights.
