Coach Chesney post-game interview in talking about the Crusaders: "Their commitment is second to none." Says it all but clearly his leadership is tremendous. A lot of athleticism on display out there this afternoon and ultimately a total team effort.
I also very much appreciated his statement that it was too bad that the parents of the Holy Cross players could not have been there. What a total embarrassment on behalf of Bucknell and the Patriot League, especially given the manner in which those in attendance were seated in that one section. That said, let's focus on the VICTORY.
IMO, Winning the Patriot League consistently is not and should not be the ceiling or the goal for the Crusader Football program. There is no reason that the Cross cannot be and should not be a Top Ten FCS program with a very real chance of winning the national championship.
Holy Cross: in terms of Athletics, A FOOTBALL SCHOOL with the Crusader Football program being one of the vehicles for elevating the Mission and the Vision of Alma Mater overall.
Let Football set the standard for our other teams to operate.
This post says it all.
Congrats to Coach and the Crusaders. A beat down victory. If I'm the rest of the PL I'm singing Chesney's praises to everyone in hopes he gets hired out of the league.
This morning, there is only one PL football team that finished the PL season undefeated. Only one PL team that is headed for the NCAA playoffs. Only one PL team that did not have to cancel a single game because of CoVID.
It’s often said that “Defense wins games”. I would posit that our PL champion Holy Cross Crusaders have proven that DISCIPLINE, both on and off the field, is what wins games.
Congratulations to our team for their total commitment to doing what it takes to be a CHAMPION.
