Football Playoffs!

Shannon Patrick on Saturday, 09 January 2010. Posted in Athletics

If you've been to RIT, you've noticed on major thing. And I'm not talking about the boy:girl ratio. I'm talking about the lack of a football field. While we have a field large enough for football (the varsity soccer field), it lacks the goal posts necessary for a good game of football. We even sell shirts mocking our lack of a team that read "Rochester Institute of Technology Football: Undefeated Since 1977."

However this weekend -- in fact RIGHT NOW -- I'm getting my football dreams fulfilled while the New York Jets are up 14-7 over the Cincinnati Bengals. This is one of those rare occasions I can be proud to call myself a Jets fan. My roommates make fun of me, as I sit here in my #24 Darrelle Revis jersey screaming at the TV at bad plays and cheering wildly when we score a touchdown. Oh wait, TOUCHDOWN!!!!!!!!! Now it's 21-7, Jets as I write this.

Just because RIT doesn't have a football team, doesn't mean you can't get your fill of the game. And besides, you can always go to a hockey game!!

    It's 1978. And quite ironic that they are sold by an engineering organization, the Institute of Industrial Engineers.

    Then the Reporter Online was mistaken! Let's just modify and say "Undefeated since the late 1970s" ;)

    I'm actually glad that RIT doesn't have a football team-- it puts the emphasis on hockey!! Which in my book is far better :)
