BLONDIES SPORTS 212 West 79th, (Broadway/Amsterdam).

1 train to 79th street, then half a block east.  Several parking garages are nearby.
NOTE: If sitting on bar stools/standing for 3 hours is not ideal for you, we will be reserving a couple tables on the restaurant side of Blondies.  Call the bar at 212 362-4360 to reserve table space.  We will not always have Hawkeye audio on the restaurant side, however.

Last Week: Syracuse
What can one say about a team that would be relegated to 1AA – or lower – if we did such a thing in American sports?  But they must be saluted for playing hard and not phoning it in, and you did have to feel sorry for the coaches and players on that sideline when this game got out of hand.  A little.  It’s hard to find anything in this game to make me think they are going to have any success in the resurrected Big East, but at least they get to play Buffalo (in their dome) so one win should be within reach.
