New Feature/Bel Air Patch

As you may have noticed, my time is limited since my site has launched. If you live in or have interest in Harford County, namely Bel Air, hit up A14-year-old music and athletic star who was fatally hit by a car last Friday has dominated coverage lately. It's a sad, but inspiring story.
One thing thing I have to bring attention to while I'm here, though, are the new segments on I've watched most of both "Up Against Atupem" episodes and plan on catching up with Leah Westbrooks, too. A genius segment that is entertaining and informative from the Mount's athletic department. Check them out and sorry for the short and intermittent posts.

Wednesday, September 1, 2010 to launch YouTube page today

The staff is expected to announce the launch of its official YouTube channel today. Videos have been available for days featuring an interview with new women's lacrosse head coach Lindsey Munday, as well as player profiles with all the men's and women's soccer teams. One of the most recent interviews is with women's soccer head coach Tom Gosselin after last night's draw with George Mason. With updates like this being put up immediately after games, this site will be the place to go for up-to-the-minute videos. Eventually each student-athlete will have their own intro page. I would have loved to have had my own intro video last year! Why couldn't they unveil this one year sooner??

Regardless of my selfish desires, this is another great idea and addition to the resources. Also be sure to check out and "Like" its Facebook page.

Update 12:09 p.m.:

Here is the link to the full release, which is pasted below.

Schedule update - Northwestern road trip right before Christmas

Because I am not perfect, I have yet another schedule update. Word from the academic side of the Mount is that Mount 2000 (you don't want to know) is the weekend of the (incredibly stupid) rivalry weekend with Wagner. Therefore those games have been flipped. (I probably had it wrong with which to begin, but that is the reason we can't be at home that Saturday.)

Additionally, a source close to the team tells me that the Mount will travel to Northwestern two days before Christmas. Traditionally the Wildcats are one of the weaker teams in the Big Ten, but with a holiday fast approaching, an expected lack of students at the game, and the Mount's recent ability to play BCS conference teams tough on the road, I like this addition. Of all the games on our schedule against power teams (Cincinnati, Penn St., Virginia Tech, Dayton) I think this is our best chance to pull an upset.

Note: 2:30 p.m. The addition of the Northwestern game is not tied to the hiring of Lindsey Munday, as the game was on the schedule before she was hired.

Update: 3:40 p.m. As the poster noted, I had the first LIU/SFNY series backward. Guessing the order of some of these conference games was a little tricky after basing it off of Sacred Heart's schedule, so my apologies.

Hopefully this is the final schedule. Updated games in bold.
