Wm & Mary in-game

Nice first Pard series, starting from the 24. A few first downs but stalled and punted to the 2. Tribe first series goes nowhere and punted 57 yards with a Pard return to midfield.
pards123

That pass has to be where only the receiver can catch it. Should never be picked
Newleopardfan2

Blake floats an end zone interception, Tribe takes over and moving well aided by a late hit flag.
Franks Tanks

Starting QB suspended for who knows how long.  Turnovers, penalties ( including pre-snap).  This is Lafayette Football to a "T".
Newleopardfan2

... that looked too easy. They ran right through us. 7-0 for now.
Andy

Freshman playing CB. No Parham??
Newleopardfan2

Tribe turns a 3rd and 17 into an easy touchdown pass; 14-0.
Franks Tanks

DB's are really struggling.  Good thing W&M's QB is rather mediocre, and had missed several very open targets.
edge29

Our D-line is pretty good but their O line is exceptional.   This could get much worse unless we make some big plays.
Newleopardfan2

Flashes of Mark Ross... nice catch. Followed by the requisite 5-yard penalty.
adcs2

Somebody mentioned injuries and the turf.  Brown (Laf) and Swinton (W&M) each just got dinged on non-contact plays.  Neither appears serious, thankfully.
Newleopardfan2

Very nice series, finished by a 10 yard TD pass to 84 DePietro. Gotta like the way our O has moved the ball against the Tribe.
bethlehempard

Temple 27 Penn State 10 and it wasn't even that close.
Time for a second huge comeback win and the weather here on campus tonight is just perfect.
Andy

The last couple series on D - JR and Smalley at CB, freshman Powe and freshman eligibility Jones at Safeties. Parham on sidelines tshirt, not sure what happened to Draeland. Simmons previously for Parham struggling on the deep patterns.
Bogus Megapardus

I'm in the North Country with a couple dozen Utica Clubs and a barely visible LSN feed.  Looks to me like OL is protecting Searfoss OK but what's with the LBs on run coverage?  W&M is better and more physical but we can play these guys if we keep our heads on.

Bobby DePietro making the Keller family proud - that's what Lafayette is about.  God Bless.


EDIT - off topic but congrats to my boy Josh Rosen at UCLA as well.
Bogus Megapardus

Prognostications about W&M OL beef certainly were not overstated.

Why am I so perplexed about Pards' LB schemes?  Are we over-thinking things?
Bogus Megapardus

Searsfoss looks every bit as good as W&M's QB Cluley but Pards can't match W&M RB #7.  W&M OL looks to be the difference in this game.
Bogus Megapardus

So what happened to our vaunted secondary?  SMH.

Can't even recover a fumbled punt!  Sheesh!

Lotsa growing pains tonight.

EDIT - Jared Roberts got away with one.

Parham and Draeland James not playing. James did start.

All that being said can we all agree we don't look completely overmatched?

We are not overmatched.
Andy

OK sure go for a FG. That's a head scratcher.
bethlehempard

Now it's a blowout. We have five tough first games and we can't overlook anybody nor should we, ever. Georgetown has shown what it can do against us.
There's a lot of time to regroup.
Bogus Megapardus

Belay that - blocked FG, Tribe TD.  We're toast.
Pard4Life

That was a textbook case of how Frank can't coach.

Any questions class?
Bogus Megapardus

Hat's off to W&M - they're looking more like UNH.

No sense in that call. 4th and inches. Down 17. Freshman kicker's first FG attempt. Worst outcome if you go for it is a turnover on the 8. No idea where that call came from.

Meh -  a freshman kicker saved his hide more than once.

Agree. Not overmatched at all. Somewhat surprised the OL looks decent. Defense a major letdown. This is an X and Os loss.

Are you saying that Reed has been suspended?  I saw him in uniform on the sidelines.  Frank doesn't usually allow suspended players to dress.
Bogus Megapardus

This loss isn't on Searfoss by any means.
bethlehempard

Frank has the titles to show he can coach but at some point we need a winning season. This year's schedule is tough.
UD lost to Jacksonville.
Wagner got destroyed by Rice.
Princeton off.
Fordham: we all know what they did.
We have five tough games in a row and Georgetown certainly can stick it to us

There is time to regroup. The best is always ahead. I think. I hope.
A little late offense would help us.
Bogus Megapardus

Getting beat by W&M bench scrubs now.

Got killed by St Francis.  If Hoyas beat us, I quit.
Andy

We're running it up the middle, they're  throwing 30 yds down field. Whose got 31 and whose got the 7?
bethlehempard

The kicker just made that obnoxious money (Manziel) gesture.
Ideally somebody will pull a Luis Zendejas move on him during the kickoff.
bethlehempard

When a couple of our guys celebrated the third-down stop early in the third, I got the feeling things were going to hell fast.

That is the gossip.  Blake is a solid QB, and a very good teammate, but he is not Drew Reed.

Much to discuss in the post mortem on this one.
Andy

4 games is also a rumor.
bethlehempard

The school is paying these guys about $5,000 per game. The rules like them or not are well-known. There is no excuse.

Go play for Lehigh or Colgate if you don't like the rules.
Bogus Megapardus

On the post game, Maurice Bennett says this game was "an extension of camp."

I think he's wrong.
bethlehempard

Go to Colgate. Break into a student's room looking for cash.
Miss one or was it two games?

Is Roger Godell administering the punishment? If so, definitely a rumor. Tom Brady agrees.

I agree with Bennett.  Defense looked like they showed up yesterday and can't cover deep routes or seams.
bethlehempard

I looked it up to be fair. The Colgate player, who by all accounts has been a good citizen since, was suspended for a game and went through the judicial system too.

It's easy to argue that he got off very lightly in terms of his Colgate suspension.   He was charged with felony burglary, and broke into a coed's room in the middle of the night.  He and his accomplice had attempted to get into a number of other rooms as well, with an intent to steal stuff.    He did 21 days in jail.

To me, that warranted more than a one game suspension.   I know Bucknell has thrown players off the team for less than that.   LC may have as well.  I think the fact that he was the leading rusher in FCS had a huge impact on his CU "punishment".

I agree.  I saw him dressed on the sidelines also.  Did overhear a couple of folks who seemed "in the know" (dads?) mention that he was suspended.  I wonder if the fact that he dressed means it was just for the first half, and he was held out of the second half for health reasons?
