Well, the Maine Black Bears won their first ever Colonial Athletic Association Championship and were ranked #5 at the end of the season, enabling them to host their first-ever home playoff game at Alfond Stadium. So Shelly and I decided we'd brave the potential cold weather and drive up to see the game. Oh yes, cold it was.
Unfortunately for the Black Bears and their fans, they ran into a hot UNH Wildcat team, one which had beaten them in the last regular season game and earning themselves a berth in the tourney. Bad luck for Maine because they'd have to see the Wildcats again, after they demolished Lafayette in the first round. Maine just made too many mistakes when it mattered most and fell in this game 41-27.
