Game notes: http://gocolgateraiders.com.s3.am...olgate_FB_Game_Notes_Fordham_.pdf

Castillo is back based on the chart, didn't pick it apart any more than that.  

Should be an interesting game between the two "next best" teams in the league this year.  I'd like to beat the Rams & then play for 6-4... but if we don't win, is it then time to play the kids?

If we are way behind or way ahead, it would be nice to give the backup QBs some playing time. This is something Coach Hunt has shied away from, but it needs to be done.

Agreed about giving backup QB's some time. But a bit tricky about when to put them in after giving up 20 point lead to Cornell with three minutes left in 3rd--and some of the other close wins from the past few years.

Colgate with #4 rushing D and #120 passing D in FCS. Will need both to play well against very good Fordham offense.

Wilkins looked great against HC. Hard not to wonder what could have been with him minus leg problems.

Wisniewski really blowing people up on D. Think he will be a very good player for the next few years.

A shame that this team doesn't have an 11th game. A win against Bryant and finishing 7-4 would still probably have them outside looking in for playoffs--but they'd have a shot. Hopefully they are able to find an 11th game for next year.  

6-4 would still be a very good season (especially with the schedule they played and only four home games). Hopefully they finish up strong.

Beat Fordham!!!

Listened to the radio show this Thursday to see what the Coach was saying about the Fordham game. The safety Hardegree was on, good kid and good football player. He put some numbers up last year for not being a starter and had a tough break with an injury for two and half games. Looking to see him making some plays. Wilkins showed us he is still a power house last week. Don't know why with Holland out he isn't being utilized to help Keyon with getting some more rushing yards. I agree about Melville, the last two games hasn't been his best. Not sure about this particular game, but we ought to see what the backup QB's can do. Let's beat Fordham today!!!!

Holland is out for the year with a PCL knee injury.  
On another topic, last night the Maroon Council put on a great event at the New York Yacht Club last night.  They showed a tape of Coach Hunt and Dan Hurwitz, the chairman of the Bd. of Trustees.  His talk was the most positive and encouraging that I have heard in years.  He spoke of the search process of recruiting President Casey.  He said they began with an examination of the process that has led to some big mistakes in the past.  He added that they wanted someone who understood Colgate unusual combination of first rate academics, in a liberal arts setting, and Division I athletics.  
They have junked some of the past plans so that Casey can have a clean slate.  He added that Casey has cleaned house of the hires made by Herbst.  A lot to be optimistic about, I think.

With Casey and Hurwitz leading the charge I am very optimistic long term.  As for short term: Beat Fordham!

He has good receivers, if only Melville could throw a pass.  Colgate defense solid until they go into their famous prevent defense - then .......

Once again we didn't hold a lead in the 2nd half. Coming out of the break we had things going our way, but the Rams just marched down the field with almost no 'Gate D in their way. Then their WR makes an unbelievable catch at the back of the end zone...geez. Missing the extra point earlier looked critical as the clock ran down but in the final analysis it didn't factor into the loss. Question: why would we send Washington up the middle on that last drive with time running out?? Seemed like a wasted play to me. Air it out, go for the pass downfield.

So now we are 3-5 with 2 games to go. I would ordinarily say we have a .500 record in the bag, but from what I saw today I hesitate to make a prediction. Any thoughts of a PL title tie were crushed today. The next two games are for pride.

The play calling in the second half was horrible and resembled the ineffective performance in the second half at Lehigh. Run up the middle and if that doesn't work, run up the middle. Our offensive line has problems. No holes, no push and an inability to provide adequate protection for the QB. Why do we stink in the second half of games. We used to own the last 2 quarters, controlling the line of scrimmage and wearing down the defense.
That brand of Colgate football is gone?  Can we get it back?

The season has had a cloud over it since Day 1 and the home schedule this year was uninspiring.  The OOC games are impressive but haven't gotten us anywhere.  The conference as a whole still feels behind the 8-ball; only Lehigh is ranked in the top 25 and no other PL team is receiving votes.  There is no reason not to play some other QBs against lackluster Lafayette and Gtown, unless Coach feels he owes it to Melville.  Seems odd that his senior year was his least successful.

The amazing win at JMU with a tremendous QB feels like a lifetime ago.  Would feel worse had Bucknell won today.  Can never rely on other teams to do your dirty work for you.  Still think a 5-5 season is worth playing for, these guys work damn hard.  Guess we know what Hunt will be recruiting for next year.
