The old canard teams aren’t as bad as they look losing,nor as good as they look winning. I sincerely hope this applies to Tigers. Pards looked to have a decent D. They were taken apart by Kanoff. Princeton D returns 10starters so no surprise there. Next 2 will be challenging.September 20, 2015 at 2:09 am #21913
Although only mildly related
Richmond put up 42 points against VMI, while playing without Vad Lee who accounted for 400 yards vs Lehigh
Dave C’s Valparaiso team finally got there feet under them after losing 52-10 to Eastern Kentucky and 56-3 to Sacred Heart by blasting College of Faith 86-0. Next week is San Diego.September 20, 2015 at 2:19 am #21914
Lee led JMU to 625 yds and 42 pts vs Albany.September 20, 2015 at 2:32 am #21916
oops..sorry wrong team
JMU is for real. Next week we find out if Princeton is too.September 20, 2015 at 2:32 am #21917
Go Lehigh TU OwlParticipant
JMU would have had about 70 points today if they didn’t turn the ball over 6 times. They had 40 first downs and 625 yards. I watched some of their game and that offense is scary. They look like the best team in the CAA. Villanova is good but without Robertson their offense is dicey.
While on the surface the 40-7 PU-LC should scare everyone to death there’s something going on in Pardville imo. Princeton will be a very difficult game but this isn’t JMU at Bridgeforth. A Lehigh win would turn some heads.
I also caught part of Yale-Colgate. The Eli will be tough but seem more like fringe Top 40 and not fringe top 25. While the next two are no picnic, 0-2 would be a disappointment imo since it would mean a losing record against the IL in year 3 of schollies.
3-2 heading into league play should set up a winning season if nothing else…

A win is good. I was somewhat concerned at half with our run game that was called as opposed to the run game that occurs when NS puts it down. Hard to tell sometime what is designed and what is improvisation. OL seemed to do a better job.
D very concerned–especially with more injuries. We still have problems with contain on the corners. I agree some of the tackling still needs improvement. Contact but no wrapping up at times. CBs getting torched may also be some communication issues with safeties. While some call for subs, be careful what you wish for. One would think if a backup was better he’d be on the field.
Nice to see Devine back in the groove. Great day punting, and Mish tremedous on KOs. Hopefully Bragalone is back next week. I hope DJ is not bad. We need depth on the DL to keep rotating. All in all a very good day. Most people picked us to win by 7-10. We should have had another 14 points. Too many penalties. I was hoping for a ‘solid’ win and we got it. I am sure most of our guys watched Princeton take LC apart, so next week looks like a step up.September 20, 2015 at 2:57 am #21920
3-2 would be very nice. Tigers secondary is excellent. LBs not so much. Gotta take LOS with our big fat guys
Pards D a4-2-5 but played very vanilla. Little pressure on Kanoff. Had time to pick apart Pards DBs.
We need TC at full strength. Johnson a legit pass rusher,gotta get him more PT. No cap on travel roster so bring him and use him.September 20, 2015 at 11:35 am #21937
[quote=21900]Nick did a phenomenal job IMHO disguising hand offs. This may be more of a refection on me but I watched the wrong guy at least 6 times during the game :-).[/quote]
I was also at the game and I concur with Shafnisky’s ball-handling skills against Penn. I think my number of times looking at the wrong player may have been higher than 6 though.

Thank you Todd and RichSeptember 21, 2015 at 3:20 am #21957
I agree about Shaf’s ball handling skills. Very deceptive. He had Penn’s DL and LBs going the wrong way numerous times.September 21, 2015 at 11:19 pm #21969
Shaf played a great game.
So did Githens, and his PL defensive award was well-deserved — as we those by our two rookies.
1) Where was Githens last year?
2) We’ve got to be patient with them, too. These kids play above their average performance level only half the time.September 23, 2015 at 2:10 am #21997
Some kids take longer to develop (both physically and mentally) than others. At their age there can be tremendous growth in both areas within a year. Another reason why red-shirting has such an impact.
