Live Opening Night coverage

Rider, will, nay must, win this game. I am tired of forever slogging through mediocre seasons. Other mid-major programs of similar size and stature to us have had their moment in the sun, and I demand this year be ours. I graduated in 2002, and during my time at Rider or since then they have never made the NIT, much less the NCAA tournament. I am predicting a 30-3 record this year, starting will a thumping of Umass.

Love how you're banging the drum on the 30-3 season. Don't think it's going to happen, but your comments are entertaining, as usual.

I just hope you don't completely give up on the season when Rider loses its fourth game.

Hope you'll join us for tonight's chat. Should be fun.

Well, I tried to be optimistic, but I refuse to bang the drum anymore. The season starts off so great, and they blow a 20 point lead to a Umass team that will be lucky to finish .500 this year.
You do a good job with the blog Doods, I'm just sorry you have to cover such a pathetic bunch of dogs. I'll continue reading, but I now officially give up on Rider ever being good.

That has to be the quickest 180-degree turn in the history of blog posting.

Can't argue with the passion, but just as I think the 30-3 prediction was a bit much, I think you're jumping the gun just a little by declaring the season over after one game.

And as I said in the chat, it's not like they got beat by 40. The second half was atrocious in every way, but you can't completely discount the first half either.

The result was more or less what most people predicted: UMass winning a relatively close game.
