Another Saturday football game

In case you hadn’t noticed, the men’s soccer team is having a pretty damn good season–11-0-4 overall and ranked fourth in the country and first in New England–and Wes is hosting the NESCAC championship this weekend. Wes will take on Middlebury at 11:00 Saturday morning, with the winner playing Sunday at noon against the Bowdoin-Williams semifinal winner. (Wes won at Middlebury 2-0 in the teams’ last meeting.) And what better way to get psyched for the Wes-Williams football game than with..a football game?

Date: Saturday, Nov. 7
Time: 11:00 AM
Place: Jackson Field (soccer field next to Admissions)

    first of all, it’s not like the soccer team gets no love. they are on the wesleyan.edu homepage for crying out loud. if that’s not endorsement, I dont know what is.

    football is the “traditional” homecoming sport. it’s the game that attracts the most spectators, too (250 for soccer, 2,500 for football is somewhat typical). and to those that say, “well this is Wesleyan, nothing is traditional,” I counter with it’s stupid to be anti-traditional just for the sake of being different. football is the “big game” like it or not

    however, go Wes soccer!

    I understand that. That’s why I appreciated this post. I’m saying I wish it reflected the greater situation at Wes.

    Is there a reason Wesleyan still focuses all of its Homecoming energy on our football team when we could throw so much more support behind some of our other teams? Not that I particularly care if we’re successful, and not that I want to take away from any other team’s accomplishments, but it seems silly to keep giving football a celebrity status when it’s other folk (say, our soccer team) who are performing admirably.
