Hobart OC Jon Drach tweeted out the picture below today stating "To be the best you better play the best!. .571 opponent winning % in 2016, 2 teams in D3football.com Top 25 / NCAA East [Regional] Ranking." As I posted back on 2/13/17 and 3/21/17, the Statesmen have pulled together a tough slate of opponents for the 2017 season, but have the home field advantage of no road trips in the month of September and no road trips over 3 hours from Geneva.
With "Fix Bayonets" to harken back to the patriots or colonial fighters of old, the Statesmen (which really are a group a "wise, skillful and respected political leaders"), appear ready for battle in 2017.
Thanks for reading and go 'Bart!
