Stevenson 57, FDU-Florham 0 (10/25)

Insert your favorite metaphor for utter domination here: Massacree, thumping, curb-stomping, garroting, steamrolling...  Stevenson's first-ever victory on Homecoming Weekend was in the tradition of innumerable Homecoming games past: play a team you are almost guaranteed to beat.  The Mustangs' frequently anemic offense put up a 57-spot on the worst team I have ever seen play at Mustang Stadium (and that counts SU in its first two 2-8 seasons).  The stands were packed for the disembowelment.

Yep, FDU-Florham's unfortunate quarterback was, in fact, named Jagger Green.  I couldn't help but make with the jokes about the QB being unable to find any satisfaction, being knocked off his cloud, and falling to the turf like tumbling dice, to Nicky's groaning discontent.  Somehow, I didn't think to mention feeling sympathy for the DevilsEsprit de l'escalier, and all that.

The Mustangs are now 5-2, with a good chance of finishing 7-3.




The college hoops season will soon be upon us, and SU is getting some votes in the preseason men's Division III polls.  Not many, to be sure, but that indicates the progress the Mustangs have made under the current coaching regime.  The women were rated third in the Middle Atlantic Conference.  Since the ladies are literally returning everyone from last season's 14-14 team, 2014-15 could be their best season in quite some time.  Stay tuned.

Yes, Stevenson sure had Jagger Green under their thumb! And after the game, I'll be he had his 19th nervous breakdown! I've got a million of 'em...
