Create an Orange Out

Ray Bucknell

Go Bison!!! They’re in the fray yet again! This Friday at 4:30 pm, my alma mater, the Bucknell Bison, takes on the Holy Cross Crusaders for the Patriot League championship.

 In response, almuni associations across the country are lobbying to create an “Orange Out.” All of you out there who support the Bison, be sure to wear your brightest orange on Friday and tune in to ESPN2.

I’m excerpting directly from the Bucknell site which has everything you need to know about the history leading up to this game:

With a victory over Holy Cross, Bucknell would:

… win its third consecutive and third overall Patriot League championship.
… secure an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. It would be the team’s third straight NCAA berth and fifth in program history.
… join the Crusaders as the only Patriot League teams to win three straight PL titles.
… win its 15th game in a row, which would extend the longest modern-day winning streak in school history.
… win its 23rd game in 27 outings since the 0-4 start.
… reach the 23-win plateau for the sixth time in school history.
… tie a school record with its 11th road victory of the season.
… improve to 10-9 against the Crusaders at the Hart Center. 
… improve to 7-4 against Holy Cross in the Patriot League Tournament (3-1 in PL championship games).
… win its 9th straight Patriot League Tournament game, which would be a league record.

Since you created a ‘Ray Bucknell’ category, I guess we can look fwd to more Buckell posts – oh boy! What Bucknell means to me is that I’m getting closer to home (from Baltimore at the time) on our way north to I-90 and eventually across the border. Go O R A N G E ! (A great color – not just for pumpkins.)
