As we were heading out to get our Christmas tree yesterday Mrs. BGA commented that it still looked more like November than December in the Upper Valley. To the relief of the fellow who plows our driveway, it looked a lot more like December when we got up this morning. About five inches of pure powder fell here on the mountain and while it was so fluffy that it didn't really need to be plowed the holidays are coming for plow drivers and their kids, too ;-)
New Hampshire's run through the FCS playoffs ended with a thud yesterday as South Dakota State pounded the Wildcats, 56-14. Credit UNH's Sean McDonnell, who has led his team to a national-best 14 consecutive trips to the playoffs, for embracing the challenge. Here's what he said postgame:
“Have some work to do to get to the top echelon of FCS football … you see the way (SDSU) played the game of football, as I told the players in the locker room, we’ve got to regroup, come back and figure out how to get to this spot. So that’s what our job is. That’s what our mission is from now on.”
