Friday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

April 10, 2009 | Glenn Clark

Maryland 11, Johns Hopkins 10 (Overtime)

I just have a hunch. Adi Joseph is right, Dave Cottle really does NEED this one.

Albany 9, UMBC 7

I’d feel much better about this one if they were playing it in Catonsville. Going on the road in such a big game won’t be easy for the Retrievers.

Navy 8, Army 5

Last year’s win was nice for Army; but the Mids are clearly superior in this rivalry. I’ll stick with them.

Hofstra 13, Towson 7

Their performance at Villanova really answered just about all of the questions I had regarding the Tigers.

Loyola 14, Georgetown 11

This could be a good win for a Greyhounds team against a down Hoyas squad. Although, this could just as easily be a letdown game for the Hounds. Loyola needs to score.

SOME QUICK THOUGHTS:

-The pitching situation was on full display yesterday. The Orioles DON’T have the arms to get the job done. I don’t need another month to know that. That I am going to pay money on back to back days to see Alfredo Simon and Mark Hendrickson is laughable. But the joke is very clearly on me.

Talk to you over the weekend.
