Things are beginning to look like 2008 for Millersville football team, and that’s not a good thing. Millersville’s defense crumbled again on Saturday as the Shippensburg Red Raiders took it to the Marauders during the first night game in Millersville since 2007. . . .
The 2009 football season for the Millersville Marauders is underway. Opening the season on the 28th, The Marauders hoped to improve from their one win season a year ago. They traveled to Worchester, Massachusetts to take on Assumption College. . . .
Starting in the AFC East, as usual, the road to the title goes through New England. Tom Brady should be back to his old self and the leagues most dynamic offense will pickup a shot in the arm with the addition of Joey Galloway and Fred Taylor. Trading Richard Seymour was a head scratcher, but sadly, I trust Bill Belichick in any personnel move. . . .
When the NFL Combine rolls around, people scramble towards their computer or television set to see who ran the fastest 40 yard dash, who had the most repetitions on the bench press and who had the highest vertical jump. . . .
If the opening sequence of 65,350 rabid fans waving Terrible Towels in a sea of black and gold at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh did not send jitters up and down your spine in the 2009 AFC Championship game, you are just not a fan of football, no matter what team you call your own. . . .
Different Saturday, same results.
The Millersville Marauders wrapped their disappointing 2008 football season with a 38-13 loss at Edinboro University on Saturday. The loss dropped the Marauders to a final record of 1-10 making it the Marauders’ first ten-loss season in the history of the program dating back to 1889. . . .
