Fordham receives, bobbles punt  goes back to recover at 10
Pards Rule

Phil Parham PICK 6!!!!
Pards Rule

Pards Parham pick 6..say that 5x!!  Pards 7 Fordham 0 in first two minutes
Pards Rule

Pards chase Chase into end zone...Fordham TD 7-7
The Maroon

Black pants, white and maroon jerseys - we look stupid.
Pards Rule

Why does the press box camera always look like it has rain on it...Whats the spread for the game?
bethlehempard

-1 yards rushing so far. We are on pace.
The spread is 19 1/2.
Ideally we will get that many yards on the ground too.
Pards Rule

6-8 250 Odom blows by Pards D for easy TD. Wait flag on Fordham...
The Maroon

Fordham picking up  HUGE chunks of yards on every play they don't get a penalty or a turnover...

It's only 14-7 but this has UGLY written all over it.
seenalot

The defense has laid down - nothing, no heart.   Football days will eventually be over but no heart will follow you for life if you let it.
bethlehempard

Colgate 14 - Lehigh 7 but the Raiders are started to dominate.
Pards Rule

Fordham TD.. Yep, Lafayette D getting burned in the Bronx. 20 point spread is going to be favorable at this point.

Good point. One of my son's high school teammates got a similar lecture from me last week along with a lot of encouragement.
Keep trying. Always keep trying.
I'm trying to keep being a Leopard fan. Trying hard.
Meet me halfway. 5-6, 6-5 will do.
Maybe not this year, maybe not next. But soon, and for the rest of your life.
bethlehempard

We have now crawled back to 0 that's zero rushing yards.
It's not negative. FU has 119, perhaps in honor of our FCS ranking.
The Maroon

We've had 4 3rd down's - closest yards to go was a 3rd and 9.

Luckily our passing game is making some plays right now
Pards Rule

Bissell FG..Fordham 14 Pards 10..Good drive after getting burned for the TD.
bethlehempard

Fordham doesn't have to pass.
We can't run.
That's a lethal combination.
Pards Rule

God, is Edmonds a Senior I hope?
bethlehempard

Yards rushing right now:
Fordham 191
Lafayette 0

It's a good thing we have a run-focused coach.

All the same it's still a game. Sort of.
Pards Rule

TD pass Fordham...
The Maroon

They are seriously getting about 10 yards per play.

Forget about our lack of running game - we can't stop them.
Pards Rule

XP messed up on bobbled snap...Fordham 20 Pards 10....
Pards Rule

WOW!! Fordham 20 points in less than first quarter. How many yards do they have rushing? I missed it...
Pards Rule

First play after kickoff - TD CHENOWITH!!!!!!!   YES!!!
bethlehempard

Blake is a stud.
The Maroon

Screw establishing the running game. Let's do what we're doing - I could care about where we rank nationally in rushing..Passing td's count just as much.
The Maroon

I'm getting whiplash watching this damn thing...

At least this week we can be pissed at the defense.
Pards Rule

Fordham TD by who else Chase Edmonds in very first minute of 2nd...Fordham 27 Pards 17...
seenalot

If our DBs back up any further they will be stepping into the Bronx zoo.  But as long as we just keep waving at tackles it really doesn't matter.  Free quarter of a million dollar educations.....get this?   Talented maybe, have the stomach or heart for it....not sure.
Andy

Safety play is atrocious.

On the previous TD we had the strike and safety ( a freshman) stacked over the slot receiver, neither one stayed with him.

3rd and 6 on last drive, we have 5 DBs on field, all lined up beyond the yardage needed and they back peddle from there. Easy first thrown underneath.

TD run just terrible tackling by 2 safeties.

Tre Jordan we need you!

Do our coaches know we can't run?

JUST JUNK!!! JUST JUNK!!

Wet bobbled snap on 4th and 2 and STOPPED!!!!!!

Well I have to admit this is an entertaining game.

This is the shittiest feed!! How do we dump Campus Insiders and get LSN?

Shitty ROI

I agree and the announcers remind me of that ex Army basketball clown in terms of knowledge.

Searfoss going down chucks up a prayer and Wadsworth catches at 10 on 4th and 5
The Maroon

God these guys are bludgeoning Blake's name...
bethlehempard

10 carries, 10 yards, getting my calculator out ... yes that's one yard per carry.
Let's give it up. Let's be an old-style WAC offense.
No Excuses, and No Running Plays.
Well we are under a ypc now.
seenalot

REALLY THATS your call for 3rd down run.......jezuz
Pards Rule

WTH we implode at 10 yard line!!
Pards Rule

Is the game going on while this shit network shows commercials?
bethlehempard

Colgate 17 - Lehigh 14 in the third.
Princeton 21 - Georgetown 14 in the second.
Holy Cross 17 - Bucknell 7 in the second.
Lewisburg, here we come!
Lehigh at the Gate 8, second and four.

Lehigh 17 - Colgate 17 in the third quarter.
Franks Tanks

Blocking is atrocious.  Complete busts time after time on the stretch cause our linemen can't move laterally.  Yet we still run it over and over.

We also can't pick up simple blitzes.  Got Blake killed a few times cause we can't switch s simple blitz.  The fundamentals we struggle with is unbelievable.  Coaching staff has either given up or is not competent enough to coach D1 football.
Pards Rule

Chase another TD this one 74 yards after we kick FG...Fordham 34 Pards 20
The Maroon

Chase has 226 yards... not a bad half
Franks Tanks

Another TD for Fordham while we were away.  Edmunds over 200 yards before the half.  Crappy effort, crappy coaching on both sides of the ball.
Pards Rule

A DL guy intercepts Blake,,,

Rushing yards: 323 to 3.
Yes.

108 to 1.

Records are being set.

The lack of fundamentals on the OL and DB is incredibly poor. Hard to watch..will anything change?  How bad must it get to make a change( and not hire someone currently on staff)
bethlehempard

In other words, despite a few great plays, we look like chumps out there.
Boys against men.

Thank God for Central Connecticut.

There hasn't been one game this year that we looked prepared for.

Nice work by Fordham with the timeouts. Would we have done that?
Pards Rule

They are passing ball with 27 seconds left...NO KNEE!

I can't fault that - they're going for the jugular. We can take something frmo this.

Is their QB trying to audition for a Bruce Weber photoshoot??

6 secs left - Fordham fumbles a snap and we stand there watching QB fall on it.

Halftime stats

 Lafayette    Fordham


1st Downs 9 18
3rd down efficiency 2-9 2-4
4th down efficiency 2-2 0-1
Total Yards 209 458
Passing 205 121
Comp-Att 12-21 8-13
Yards per pass 9.8 9.3
Interceptions thrown 1 1
Rushing 4 337
Rushing Attempts 15 26

Penalties 2-20 4-25
Turnovers 1 1
Fumbles lost 0 0
Interceptions thrown 1 1
Possession 16:28 13:24

Yards per rush: 0.3 or 11 inches per carry. The sack deduction doesn't help but that's not the problem.

Four yards. Blake should be able to get that by falling forwards with style.

That's the question - Frank, why should we expect a change for the better?  I'm afraid the Tavani era has run its course. This is pitiful.

.3 yards per attempt (YPA).....4 yards total in half...DISGRACE!! You would think we were playing Army!

Lehigh 31 - Colgate 17. 2:17 left in the third.
I see no chance of Lafayette playing close with either team.
bethlehempard

Maybe Army will activate their sprint (lightweight) players against us.
Lehigh just scored again.

Did they send in their 2nd team defense?

Remember when we used to bitch about Fordham having scholarships and it somehow not being "fair?"

It's amateur hour out there.
Pards Rule

Blake flea flicker intercepted AND returned for TD...Flag..PI Fordham
pardfan

It's awfully easy to say to say that it's the end of the Tavani era--as Andy said today and I said last week.  Trouble is, I think there is something deeper going on here.  Scholarships did not strengthen the weak and the small (LC and HC, for instance) in a relative sense.  They have WIDENED the gap between the weak and the strong.  For now, we think it's coaching and poor recruiting that are the issues.  That may not be the case.
This may be "law of the jungle " stuff.  The rich and powerful dominate at everything else.  Why would Patriot League FB be any different?

bethlehempard

If we get a TD here, what does the chart say to
do when you're down by 22?

One pundit suggested the sprint team might be favored next week.

This is an unmitigated disaster. This is the result of years of accepting excuses and ignoring reality.

And as somebody noted earlier, this isn't a great Fordham team.

The color guy has pronounced Blake's last name 18 different ways...

Searfoss intercepted at goal line..Fordham ball...Fordham has just basically spanked us since I witnessed in person the 2013 upset of the then #5 Rams the game before Lehigh in 2013. Does that seem like a fricking eternity ago??

Media guide:

Against Lehigh on October 24, Edmonds set the Patriot League and school single game rushing record with 347 yards on 31 carries with three touchdowns. He also caught two passes for 55 yards and a score in the game to bring his all-purpose yards total to 402, breaking his own Patriot League record of 385 all-purpose yards set in the 2014 NCAA Championship game at New Hampshire.

That was October 2015. I thought league records had to be in league games. That could be resolved today.

Its like watching a favorite horse that has gone lame and everyone knows you need to put it out of its misery.  Except our steadfast leader Bruce doesn't have the stones to do it.  Nor, for that matter does his boss the head of diversity (what a joke) have what it takes to broom Bruce either.  

Welcome to a leadership vacuum.....  

President B - this is where you earn your money.
bethlehempard

Lehigh 45 - Colgate 24 with 3:30 left.
Princeton 31 - Georgetown 17 as the fourth quarter starts.
Holy Cross 20 - Bucknell 14 at the start of the final quarter.

Maybe we have a couple chances.
The Maroon

Can we use a different QB in the fourth quarter...

You know...we might as well start thinking about next year.
