I’m optimistic about 2013. Offense should be in good stead, although QB will be the question

mark with no real ‘gameday’ experience. He appears to have all the tools.  DL will lose a lot of

starters, but there is a good group of lettermen returning.  Reports say the sophomore and

freshmen secondary men are very athletic.  Key, there, is building confidence. LB corps should

be in good shape, but depth there, as well as DL will be important. Losing a big stud in the

middle of the DL hurts and hopefully someone fills those shoes. Chagani’s absence in much of

the Holy Cross game really hurt as it allowed Crusaders to run inside on us and opened up the

passing game. Special teams were much improved this year. Divers back a punter, though I

expect competition for PK. Looking at schedule, I see at worst a 7-4 record, with the four

‘potential losses’ all toss-ups: UNH, Fordham, Colgate and Laughyette. I would favor us in the

other seven–although on second thought Princeton could be tough, depending on what they

have returning from a better than expected 2012 squad.  Spring Game will be very interesting

as the QB’s battle for #1.
