Finally got it. A loss, sure, but no give up and not a rout by a very good team. Melville' says throwing not good

Be grateful you cant watch. I'm not sure I understand. It was Richmond. They are ranked in their division. We lost by 7 points. We kept up with this team like we were in their league. We need some receivers who will catch the balls is all I can say. Other then that, Def was top of the line! Offensive could have made some more plays but kept up. I think this was a GREAT game.

UR is a physically talented team. I doubt we will see such a plethora tall, fast receivers again this year. I was proud that the guys really hung in this game and clawed their way back, despite a sub par day for Jake. The D was superb. Great display of grit and character. We know that tough games in the PL are ahead, but I like this team's chances.
I was impressed with LU and Fordham today. Nice to take 3of 4 from the Ivies. And lastly, kudos to G'town.

It was a great effort and, IMO, further proved that we are becoming increasingly competitive with the CAA.

IMHO, this Colgate team has the potential to be the best since 2003.  

It has the best all-round defense which I've seen in a Raider squad since the Dunlap era.  

Running the table against PL opponents and Cornell is a very real possibility.

Reality rearing it's ugly little head again. Get a team like Syracuse or Richmond, like I said before, our defensive backs just aren't big or fast enough to cover. Bryan Brown owned us. Our Achilles tendon. They also dropped two interceptions thrown right to them.
Melville 5-22, three interceptions where the receivers weren't even near the ball, not on the same page.
The running game was decent, Fields punt block leading to a td was tremendous, defense against the run was decent, stopping quite a few third down tries.
Tied at halftime I thought we were right in it, called my buddy and said I don't see any reason we can't beat this #7 ranked team. I did tell him #12 Brown might be the reason we lose if we do. Well, he became Richmond's all time receiver in the second half with a 66 yard td catch.
Next up 2-0 Cornell who beat Yale and they did it by passing. Could be a very entertaining game for homecoming. Should be a good crowd with the dedication of the new rink, inauguration etc. Weather says 68 and sunny. It's been way too long.

And yes, probably our best team since 2003.

They are pretty sure #12 Brown has a pro career ahead of him down in Richmond.  Their folks were very impressed with our team, particularly Morgan and Afriye on D and Melville on O... even though he was off badly throwing the ball they were very impressed with his ability as a runner.  And I think we all saw what a weapon Daramy can be, bet he breaks more than a couple the rest of the year.

Encouraged with what I saw yesterday, we were right with them all game.  Would not have been the case a few years back.  Cornell is a little worrisome, trap game before the league starts... but I think overall we're in a very good place.

I like the optimism, but to be fair, Melville was not his usual self though I was impressed we hung in there up to a point.  We have a habit of giving up points in the waning seconds of a quarter or half.  Our near-comeback in the 4th Qtr showed a lot of grit.  Last year Melville had 2 (?) interceptions yet he has already doubled that.  Isn't there a reason we have backup QBs?  Are they reserved solely for injuries?!  Yale used 3 of theirs.  Melville seems to get better as games ware on, but he was more effective with his legs than his arm on this day.  Did not think that Richmond played a flawless game and was hoping the Raiders could make a statement.  One announcer said, "This Patriot League team plays like it could be in the CAA," which I found to be a bit insulting about our league but was intended as a compliment.  We had a great momentum win over Yale, until I saw what Cornell did to them.  Hope we can take them to the woodshed on Saturday.  A home game - finally.
