Maine coach Jack Cosgrove could laugh about it because he was used to such results.
And then William & Mary defensive end Mike Reilly seemed to have the poll in perspective.
"It seems like the favorite never wins it," the Buck Buchanan Award candidate said at CAA Football media day.
"I think it's really all about being consistent with play. You have to win those league games, every single game, every game really counts. If at the end of the year, if you can find yourself in the mix, you can sneak in." Full Story
Here is the training camp practice schedule for the St. Anselm College football team. Times are subject to change. All practices, as well as the camp-ending scrimmage, are open to the public.
