The Drive North!!
With Dave jetting off to Spain -- his fair lady Lisa at his side -- and me stuck at work analyzing the Vegas lines, we've said goodbye to our Booster Club comrades who are now en route to Cornell's campus by bus. (Thanks to Vinny, we do have some inside info to share: the movie on the ride there was "Planes, Trains and Automobiles.")
Given the firepower of this Cornell squad, we could probably use an arsenal of Planes, Trains and Automobiles, not to mention a couple Tankers and Hydrogen-Powered Gorge-Bombers. As I've said, I expect SHU to win this game, but it will not be easy. Still, we've had an entire week to prepare -- a veritable "reading period" by Ivy League standards. Let's just hope Stix made some flash cards, because memorizing the opponent's offensive sets won't be easy; who's on this Cornell team again?
The big question remains: to Keon or not to Keon? Still no word as far as we know, but it's a very sensitive issue. Either way, you can bet those Cornell fans will be auditing his every move, on the bench or not.
PS. Apologies to any accountants who might have been offended by my earlier post. My uncle is a fantastic accountant! He went to Cornell.
