      Sounds like an excuse to me…There are schools with less support that has won more then three games this season.

    I attended Hartford and played for two years under the direction of Coach Calcaterra.u00a0 I had much respect for him .u00a0 His methods were unorthodox and treated his players like crap.u00a0 I am glad to see him go.u00a0 He didn’t do a much better job that our former coach Harvey Shapiro.u00a0 Slider, tell me, other than large D-1 schools in the northern USA, what low level D-1s have an indoor facility?u00a0 We had a batting cage under the gym stands, but it was the poor attitude he brought in with him in the spring of 2005 that set a program under his direction up for failure.
