Born a Buckeye. My story reads much like Ms. Mona Lisa Vito's background as a mechanic: My father was a Buckeye. 2 aunts and 2 uncles on my father's side were Buckeyes. My Mother was a Buckeye. Her brother was a Buckeye. My cousin was a Buckeye. It goes on and on . . .

The flipping thing seems to be a frequent occurrence in lacrosse.  The #1 recruit O'Neill was an original PSU commitment that flipped to Duke.  Plenty of transfers after playing a year or two at an original school.  Maybe we'll find another Ben Randall down the road.  Also - there are a couple of more Islips: Central Islip, home of Malcom Pridgeon from the OSU gridiron (no lax team), and East Islip, home of Boomer Esiason.  Actually, Islip is the better of the lax Islips lately.  They won the NYS Class C championship in 2018.

My family has gone to the game twice.  We stay in a hotel that is 8 minutes away from parking at the RAC.  A shuttle bus picks us up and drops us off a their practice bubble, which is a few minute walk from the stadium.  Always plenty of buses to get to the stadium, and since the games have been blow outs, not much wait for a bus back to the RAC.  It has treated us well so far. . .

Jerry wants a pawn that he can control.  Urban won't go for Jerry's meddling.  I can see Urban taking an interview, then decide that Jerry won't give him the authority he wants and walk away from the table.

Back in the day, we used sideline benches for snow removal, until our starting GK got frostbite. That put an end to cheap labor.

Great.  Since I missed that game, I'm going to have to Google hippopotamus shit, because I really have no clue what it looks like.

Now that we are 5 games into the season and recruits are seeing how Day is using the RB's, I believe we will be in the mix again for the top backs in the country.

They were trying to redshirt him last year to get him out of the Hornibrook reign/eligibility.  He didn't look so great last year in 5 games (ex: 6-11, 73 yards in the bowl game) after replacing the injured Hornibrook, but that could have been the offense that was built around Hornibrook's limitations.  He was a prolific passer here on LI and has trained under Phil Simms.  The pundits said Coan was in quite the battle for the starting role with that Frosh QB. 

It's funny walking around town - I can tell who's related to Coan by their Wisky apparel.  I always seem to be in Buckeye gear when I see them.

Jack Coan is not the true freshman.  He's been in the program 3 years.  A former ND lacrosse commit as well.
