That's a bit of a letdown after winning the conference championship (6-0 in conference) and winning two playoff games to make it to the national quarterfinals last season.
The one true campus upheaval that captured everyone regardless of politics.
Fall. 1982 (neither Swedes, Mexicans, nor moose were involved in these credits, and noone was bitten). My team had won a place in the newly-expanded 1-AA championship bracket. Our then-President (George Langdon, a Yalie) announced that Colgate would honor the Ivy League tradition (I've never seen Colgate in the Ivy standings) and not take part in the 1-AA playoffs as playoffs were beneath "true academic Universities".
Campus went bug-nuts. Langdon's multiple effigies suffered all of the really ugly mediaeval tortures (at least the ones that weren't burnt on sight). He backed down within 24 hours.
Colgate's true issue with "College Football" is 1932, when the only bowl game was the Rose Bowl. Undefeated, un-tied, un scored-upon, un-invited. My maternal grandfather was a Colgate senior during that travesty.http://articles.latimes.com/1987-12-13/ ... lgate-team
Why I'm typing this paean to an organization I've formally told to never send me another piece of mail is beyond me.
Humans sleep soundly in their beds because rough cats stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm.
