Apps Fall to University of Maine

Orry Frye

Saturday ended the Mountaineers football season here in Boone, after losing to University of Maine. While it's never fun to watch our team drown in sorrow, I'm looking forward to the other seasons to come. This week offered great paddling, biking, and mediocre skiing--but that's what you get in the southeast.

Congratulations to the team from this year for a solid season, regardless of how it stacks up. Sure, we had a few more losses, trouble replacing players who have moved on, and had a pretty stagnant playbook, but that's what makes football great, the ebb and flow of success and failure. The excitement of wondering how a game will go is unmatched by going into a game planning on winning.
