Gannon's enamel-grinding 59-48 loss to IUP has put me over the edge. I mentally can't handle the mounting disappointing losses, especially at the Hammermill. I know many of you feel the same way. To help all of us keep our sanity, let's try distracting ourselves from this latest loss:
* By popular demand, here's an update on former Knight Bobby Bossman. Someone just emailed me this complimentary article about Bossman.
* Jerry Slocum is having a solid year at Youngstown State. On the surface, a 12-10 overall mark and 7-5 league record aren't impressive, but the 7 Horizon wins are the most in school history and the Penguins still have 6 conference games remaining. Click here for the YSU schedule/results.
* We used to talk a lot on this site about the dreadful Hilbert and Salem International women's basketball teams. How are they doing this year? Hilbert is 3-17, allowing 64 ppg while scoring 43, a vast improvement from prior years. (Though they did just lose at Medialle 55-21 in front of 38 fans.) Salem is in a similar sinking boat with a 3-16 mark. They're being outscored 66-46 with the worst loss at Northern Kentucky, 75-19.
* My new team to keep an eye on is the Lady Knights of Crossroads College in Rochester, MN. Their website lists them with 0 wins in a lucky 13 games this season. It even lists them as losing their alumni game! Their site doesn't list scores, but I managed to track down a few: 80-15 vs. Faith Baptist Bible College, 75-15 at Moody Bible Institute, 62-22 vs. Emmaus Bible College, and 53-20 at Faith Baptist. They even lost 93-21 to now 1-15 Crown College. Can we get them in the Porreco Cup next year?
