Richmond beat UVA 37-20.

Cerra was very good in person. He was clearly instructed to keep the ball away from their returner and you could not do a better job than he did. Most that landed out of bounds did so by about 2 yards, which is exactly what you want. He appeared to be favoring something with the way he was warming up at halftime (maybe lingering from the running into penalty?), but it did not have any effect on his 2nd half punts.

OK,  We are still licking our wounds, but we certainly live to fight another day.  We've been in worse shape after game one in the past, and I believe that the consensus on this Board holds out a ton of positives for this team as we move on.  That being said, our opponent on 9/24 beat a team (Virginia) that is arguably a notch ahead of its ACC rival "Cuse. Our match-up with Yale is beyond huge.  We should have won last year's game in Hamilton but for the fact that our young transitioning team had yet to learn how to finish.  That changed with Holy Cross the following week. We should be in a more advanced level at this point of the team's maturation. It's time to play our A game at every level and find the killer instinct. Third and long should never be our opponent's best play, and we need to move beyond biting our nails with goal line defensive stances at the end of every game. The talent is there, as is the effort, guidance and leadership.  Let's do it !

I'm not sure that's true. I think Syracuse will be improved from years past, while Virginia looks pretty terrible. I don't think too many people are particularly shocked that Richmond won. Maybe the way they won, but not the victory itself.

I agree about Yale. Huge game, very winnable. Right now, my best case scenario for Richmond involves us being competitive enough to build confidence and win the playoff rematch (like UNH last year Cool ). With only 10 games, we can't afford to go worse than 2-2 OOC to have a playoff shot beyond winning the League.

Pretty interesting breakdown of how Syracuse attacked Colgate on the first drive. Morgan was really close to getting the pick on that first play.

The TD catch was a really good play--perfect ball and great catch (and a good penalty by Colgate). For whatever didn't go Colgate's way in that game, Syracuse also made some really good plays on passes that were well-defended.
