Welcome back Flyer fans (and assorted friends and family members). We missed you last week because…well, because we spent two hours talking about Con Air. We only have so much pointless rambling in us in one week. Really, who’d have thought there is an end to our supply of bullshit? Not my high school teachers, I’ll tell you that. • • • • • [dropcap type=”1″]1[/dropcap]Matt: Since we last communicated to you, the Flyboys went 1-1,...

Gobble gobble bitches! Happy Thanksgiving, the best holiday of the year. Food, football, and fun. Christmas is overrated and too corporate. St Patrick’s Day is amateur hour. Martin Luther King Day always gets awkward. Thanksgiving is the perfect holiday.  You get to eat early (more on that later), watch football (again more later), and then eat leftovers (MORE ON THAT LATER!!!). To celebrate this holiday, Matt and I bring you a special T-giving Five for...

Another year, another season of Don and Matt (and guests!!!) boring the shit out of you. Not sure if anyone listened to the podcast we did last week (probably not since it sucked and was buried on the site), but we are planning on writing a Five for Flying every other week and doing a podcast every other week. This, of course, is wishful thinking, as we will probably get bored, run out of topics, get...

Five For FlyingFoobawl!!

Well kids, it has been a fun summer off for Don and I. I caught up on some reading, played some golf, had my best fantasy baseball season ever and got the pleasure of being at an airport when a plane crashed on the runway. Don spent his summer getting into the routine of his hormone replacement therapy. So, a lot of fun was had by all. We decided to bring you ten minutes of...

AND WE’RE BACK!!! After a few weeks off for Don’s “identity surgery,” we are back just in time for the end of CBB season, and the beginning of the time when you don’t want to be inside reading meaningless crap on the Internets. — 1– Matt: Since there isn’t anything major Flyer related to discuss here, let’s talk about the NCAA tourney. Specifically, filling out your brackets. Last year, just about everybody had Kentucky winning...

Much like Mike McD in Rounders, this Flyers team has alligator blood. They just won’t die. With two wins against Charlotte and Richmond, the Flyers are continuing on their journey to Brooklyn for the A16 Tournament. While we won’t talk about the wins too much, as they have been addressed already, we will talk about the conference as a whole. —1— Don: Someone tweeted that the Flyers can actually finish as high as 6th place....

So the Flyers had a light week with a game at UMass. You would think, that with their season hanging in the balance, and with a week to prepare, UD would come out with one of their best performances of the year. Well, you would be dead wrong. —1— Matt: I did not watch the game. I had no interest in submitting myself to what could be a ridiculous embarrassment. So now we stare directly...

Hello campers. The Flyboys went 1-1 since we last had a column, with a gut punching loss to Rhode Island and a season saving win against Xavier. What’s that? Are you not agreeing with me that the season is saved because of a Xavier win? You clearly must not read UDPride! More on that hilarious site in a moment. —1— Don: Anyway, February is thankfully ending which means March is within view. While the Flyers...

—1— Matt: Well here we are again, Flyer faithful. It’s the time that comes every season when we can stop having any expectations for this year’s team. This comes at different points every season. Sometimes after getting knocked out of the NCAA Tournament (rarely), sometimes after a deep NIT run (less rarely), and sometimes after losing another embarrassing A10 game (least rare). I didn’t watch the St Joe’s game as it was on past my...

1.) Don: Two wins in a row for the Flyers. Break out the bubbly, this team is dancing! What’s that? Fordham and Duquesne are terrible? Oh…nevermind then. The Flyers did what they were supposed to do and that is win against two shitty ass teams at home to gain some momentum into the Jimmy Carter Classic on Wednesday. I will admit that because of prior engagements (read: I didn’t give a fuck), I didn’t watch...

We’re back here for another Five For Flying a little later this week, because sometimes life kicks you straight in sack, like Kathy Ireland nailing a 50 yard field goal. Only I’m slightly less turned on right now. And nobody is Samoan. Well, maybe they are. You wouldn’t know either way. Yeah, I’m Samoan. And a chick. Wanna be my boyfriend? • 1.) Matt: Well folks, if any of you still had dreams of an at-large,...

1.) Don: Since we’ve last traded correspondence, Dayton has lost their first two conference games sending panic through the red sweater/blue haired nation. Losing to the two teams that will most likely finish one and two in the conference is nothing to sneeze at, but 0-2 is 0-2. With no significant wins in the non conference portion of the schedule (Alabama is a gross 9-6 right now), Dayton needs a solid conference record to have...
