I just want to let everyone know that we, as a global society, are no closer to unlocking the secrets of time travel than we were, say, 100 million years ago. (I checked the Wikipedia page on time travel and this conclusion is confirmed.). This is problematic for a few reasons, but only one draws the greatest level of concern from me: I want to own a time machine so that I can move forward and backward through time, mostly so that I can capture a dinosaur in the past, transport it to the future, and use it to rampage through future society and claim the Earth as my own personal golf course. Like they say -- nothing is impossible, so stop stalling my dreams of ending civilization, scientists and physicists.
Anyway, there are seven games today, with action starting late this afternoon and extending into business time tonight. Here are your highlights for the day:
- Penn State at Bucknell: When the season started, I think most people pointed to Lehigh and Penn State as Pennsylvania's strongest prospects for putting a team in Philadelphia for Championship Weekend. While each team has had moments this season when they've looked like the nationally elite, it has actually been Bucknell -- the scrappy school that approaches the game with googly Muppet eyes -- that has established itself as the class of the Keystone State. There are few teams that are drawing the kind of attention that the Bison are at the moment, and with an opportunity this afternoon to defeat a Nittany Lions team that hasn't really accomplished anything notable since a February victory over Denver in Jacksonville, Bucknell can continue its climb toward the top of the nation while also asserting itself as Pennsylvania's strongest team in 2013.
- Providence at Bryant: It's a battle for Rhode Island! Everything that the Ocean State has to offer is on the line today -- [I'm sure that Rhode Island has things, but I have no clue what they are]. The Friars have never beaten the Bulldogs, and with Providence currently in the midst of a three-game losing streak and Bryant -- finally! -- getting its first win of the season this past weekend against Stony Brook, tonight's game in Smithfield holds the complete attention of New England and, possibly, the world.
Here's today's full schedule with links to things so that you can monitor the carnage (Wagner, unfortunately, is not in action because your judging eyes are always judging):
