It is interesting that CCSU, with an inexperienced QB, throws to the TE successfully and often during key yardage plays. I do not think that Lehigh did so once.
Why? – because it is too complicated for our OC so we overuses the QB.
Downfield passes or slants over the middle?? No, too complicated and difficult to learn for the coach.
I have rarely seen an opposing defensive backfield so bunched up. They had zero fear of LU spreading the field so they played accordingly. Sure enough, the next play was a hand off – up the middle or a QB run.September 5, 2015 at 3:12 pm #21488
It was Barrett that got beat on that pass. Don’t know if the CCSU DL is that good, but our OL could not handle them.
Watching the game I thought our DL did a great job but looking at box score the CCSU RBs rushed for a good average.
Pressure on QB was markedly better than last year. CCSU QB really kept them in the game.
I for one don’t mind bounding the ball with these two RBs. Not very exciting but wears on a D and makes the passing game more effective when we need it. Does anyone think that Brags or Brisker have the speed to run outside? Maybe Nick does?September 5, 2015 at 3:13 pm #21489
did anyone notice that Rigaud had 10 tackles? Seems like quite a high number for a CB. What to make of that?September 5, 2015 at 3:27 pm #21490
Yeah,looked at play again.
Dom fast enuf but he is a north south runner from what we’ve seen. Brisker? Not sure. Very quick with cuts but no idea how that translates on sweeps. Think both would be fine on option runs,if we hav that in the playbook.
10 for Rigaud. Given CCSU. O probably not surprising. Notice CBs now play up on most plays. Last year CBs were well back from LOS.September 5, 2015 at 3:49 pm #21491
Play calling against CCSU was TERRIBLE .To run the same play hand off to the RB and try to run up the middle of the D line when that is what the D is playing for ,Lehigh SLO-MO hand off to RB up the gut . RESULT gang tackle by CCSU D .It seems Lehigh has only 5 plays in it’s playbook .Do we have any screen pass’s or any trick plays to keep the D spread out .Very hard for O to generate any momentum when the D has 11 players waiting and seeming to know what plays Lehigh is going to run .Our O coach’s seem to lack imagination or innovation in play calling .September 5, 2015 at 5:30 pm #21492
Just finished rewatching game. Besides screwing up on Montgomery,OL had a lot of changes that I didn’t recognize. Tennant didn’t play.Cohen in at RG .Duffy left game with what looked like an ankle early in game Sweeney went in at RT.Kinda explains all our OL complaints.September 5, 2015 at 5:40 pm #21493
If you looked at the posts from last year, we said many of the same things about the play calling and OC. Like last year, Shaf won’t make it through the year healthy with that many carries. Given the offensive scheme’s dependence on him doing so, it is a scarey proposition.
I don’t understand why Andy isn’t more involved in the play calling unless he agrees with it. If my job hung in the balance I might want to remember the definition of insanity.
In regards to the game, the defense was clearly better. However, the question is was it because of the opponent or real improvement. JMU will help answer that question.

I didn’t see 10 tackled from #1. I was there. But I love what I saw. The RBs gonna be fine just fine. I like the fact that he let the frosh return kicks. That builds dept and a solid team with capable backups. Like I said early future looks bright… Oh that was #37 that got beat on a basic wheel route.. Montgomery should’ve been there to take that away or Lawson…
Fordham Ouch!!!September 5, 2015 at 6:18 pm #21496
Nothing has changed on offense since last year, same old 5 F’n plays we run or throw every single time, every game! The freshman were OK, nothing special, they should be ready to go in a year. It’s going to be a long year on the “O”.
The defense with the exception of a blown coverage or two was very impressive, they have come a long way! To have at least a .500 season it will be rest on the “D”September 5, 2015 at 6:27 pm #21497
Fordham has clearly adopted the Delaware philosophy of FBS QB transfers. Makes it much easier to just reload.September 5, 2015 at 6:28 pm #21498
Perhaps buddy. On watching game ,I am convinced Folmar went vanilla except for 3-4 plays.Even vanilla we rolled up a lot of yds. Did not finish well in the red zone. We left at least 3 TDs out on field. We did run long patterns but Nick rarely had time to hold for those throws with CCSU blitzing 2 and at times 3.September 5, 2015 at 6:38 pm #21499
Perhaps? But this is CCSU which is not a good team and we performed poorly on offense and could not execute the plays when needed and at the right time. We do this against JMU and we will get smokedSeptember 5, 2015 at 6:54 pm #21500
Agree if we play same O scheme,JMU will eat us alive. Optimistically thinking Folmar kept us vanilla.September 5, 2015 at 7:30 pm #21501
GOD! I hope your right however, I don’t think Folmar knows anything else except Kutztown football? Lets pray for the best, I wish Andy would step in and call the plays or find someone who can.
Again, I like the big “D”, they should at least keep us close.September 5, 2015 at 7:32 pm #21502
Hope you’re right, but he was pretty vanilla the entire 2014 season. His body of work is starting to indicate it is what it is. He certainly over uses Shaf.
Let’s hope we see some mint chocolate chip this weekend or this season could be a rocky road.😉
