It was not a good half of football.
“I’m disappointed with today’s outcome,” head coach Andy Coen said after the game. “We never gave ourselves a chance. UNH really jumped us from the get-go and were very physical. We did not tackle very well. They really controlled every aspect of the game through the half.”
For Lehigh fans, it made for some tough viewing at the place they call the “Dungeon” on a rainy, grey afternoon in Durham, New Hampshire.
New Hampshire scored touchdown drives of 71, 74, 84, and 90 yards in the first half, converting some 2-point conversions for good measure, to coast to a 29-0 lead. They never looked back.

“I think we just need to get better coming out in the second half,” said UNH senior OL Seamus O’Neill in their win over Colgate two weeks ago. “We need to focus on playing the entire game. When we’re up on someone we need to keep our foot on the pedal.”

Let’s break these guys down.

In the run-up to the game versus New Hampshire, you can bet New Hampshire head coach Sean McDonnell and Lehigh head coach Andy Coen will want to talk about lots of things.
The Wildcats lead off the year against an FBS squad, Central Michigan, and the defending Patriot League champions, Colgate. They’re both very winnable games, and they’ll hope to be 2-0 going into Bethlehem off of a bye week and a tough first two games.
Lehigh will have come off opening games against Central Connecticut State, Monmouth and Princeton, and hope to have solidified all the questions going into training camp – and, hopefully, justified their ranking at No. 17 in the preseason coaches’ poll.
You can bet, though, what New Hampshire and Lehigh won’t want to talk at all about the Wildcats’s last visit to Murray Goodman Stadium.
That’s because they’d then have to talk about “the Divot”.
