Agreed. I see another high scoring game with 1 TD being the difference either way.

Can our secondary handle Lehigh's passing ?

Looks like Tyler Castillo isn't available. Our secondary has seemed porous when we've given opposing qb's the time to go through their rotation without pressure. Does anyone know what our strategy is going to be that shores up the secondary ?


LCB 26 Cortney Mimms (5-10, 175, So.) 4 Abu Daramy (5-10, 185, Fr.)
SS 31 Christian Hardegree (5-11, 200, Sr.) 8 Ben Hunt (6-0, 185, So.)
FS 1 Joe Figueroa (5-10, 190, Sr.) 34 Alec Wisniewski (6-2, 200, So.)
RCB 21 Adam Bridgeforth (6-0, 190, Sr.) 4 Abu Daramy (5-10, 185, Fr.)

First off, that was the best Cornell team I've seen in years, the qb has an arm.
Secondly, I watched the game on Time Warner sports yest,  in the second half we rushed three down men and every play they were picked up. The qb had all the time in the world, now why did we do that ? We stopped their running game and let them throw for over 400 yards. Lehigh's second string qb passed for 4-500 yards last weekend, we have to change something or we're cooked. This can't continue, Pujols for Holy Cross will light us up also.
On the two fourth and ones  I think Holland would have made them, plus I think we made one of them but a bad spot by the ref. Then the tipped pass which could have been intercepted, it was going to be intercepted by the safety but the up db got his hand on it and right into the Cornell receiver's hands which he ran untouched into the endzone. That was the turning point.
I've been harping all year on how bad our db's are, we need to rush more than three and do some blitzes, too predictable. Wish I knew what is wrong with Holland.

Feel your pain about DBs. Dont see any PL 2ndarys as being very good.  Problem for DC is blitzes mandate some man to man in the 2ndary.even in a base zone scheme. Some Lehigh WR is on a single. Lehigh O has too many weapons. Gonna be a chess maych between DC and OC. If LU stays hot on O dont think what DC calls will make any difference. Key is for your DL to get the pressure.

Zappa and Rich,

I agree that Holland would have made the 3rd and 4th down 1-2 yard plays easily. He has all year, even against 'Cuse and Richmond. That would have kept drives alive. We need to win the time of possession game against Lehigh. Against Cornell, the passing 3 and out from inside our own 20 in the first half was gutsy, but very uncharacteristic of our approach to initiating sustained drives from coupling the read-option with diversified play action passing packages. It was rare that we couldn't get a drive going from there. But, again, with Holland, we could have mixed it up with the read option. Keyon played a good game, but he's more valuable as a complement to Holland, and doesn't have the timing with Jake that Holland has.  And Keyon doesn't have the initial power thrust and thrust forward of Holland's running.

We're capable of pressuring Lehigh's qb and cutting off their running game.
Can we do that for 60 minutes without giving up intermittent long strikes in the air from the Hawks ? Both teams know, with our DB's, Lehigh can do a lot of damage if we aren't constantly getting to their qb all game. If we get that presurre by making them one dimensional, get the breaks and advantages on turnovers and have exceptional play in all aspects of special teams, we can shut them down. ( Abu D. gets a couple of exceptional returns from kickoffs, with obviously many more opportunities for kickoff returns in this game. )

Lehigh is not better than Richmond. And hasn't played a schedule anything like Gate's, save a very weak Yale. And has not played against the D- front 7 that we have. I'm not convinced that they can't be disrupted if our D-7 really wants this game. The D-7 is potentially that good! The secondary will need that kind of help or they'll be picked apart.
