Drexel Takes on UMBC Tomorrow, Show up. Be Loud.

I was listening to a college football podcast before the season began, and the host had a gambling “expert” on.

The expert said that the way oddsmakers factor in home field advantage varies. If a game is being played at Beaver Stadium in front of 110,000 fans, oddsmakers will certainly take that into consideration because they know crowd noise can affect the outcome of a game.

Drexel Falls to NJIT...but it's not all bad

If you’ve had the misfortune of sitting near me at a Drexel basketball game, you've probably heard me yell something to the effect of “what are we doing?”

WBB: New-Look Roster Looks to Continue Piling Up Wins at the DAC, starting Friday Against Quinnipiac

The Five Must See Games at The DAC this Season

If I had basketball fever and the only cure was watching Drexel play Bryn Athyn, I don’t know if I’d be able to do it.

Unfortunately for me, I have a much more serious and permanent disease, it’s called being a Drexel basketball fan, so I’ll be there when they play the D-III Bryn Athyn, and when they tangle with Robert Morris, and I’ll be there when we seek revenge against NJIT.

In Defense of Drexel Basketball, The Second Draft

The Triangle recently published a piece written and/or co-signed by former DAC Pack presidents who saw the DAC Pack through some of their strongest years. The article eloquently commented on the past success of Drexel basketball and the fan support that surrounded it. The piece ended with optimism, explaining how students and alums can #TakeBackTheDac and take Drexel basketball and the experience surrounding it back to it’s glory. The co-signers of the article welcomed a chance to meet with President Fry to discuss how to #TakeBackTheDac.
