Hope your still happy about the sloppy passing and the poor perimeter defense.... but most think they are making progress..... 0-8 losing streak...glad we scheduled UM Machais!! Remember we played a few games and started practice late this summer?? Just expecting the overall product to be a little bit better at this point in time.

"aechamps": You bring up a good point that Maine had 10 practices and 3 games in Costa Rica in August.

Maine football team scored more points today in 55 then Maine did in regulation time of 51 and ended up with 59 points in overtime.

Maine has got to hold opponents to in the 50's like they did today in regulation in order to be able to win games, especially against non-conference teams.

Looking at the AE Conference teams I think Maine can compete with the lower 3rd teams like 1-5 Binghamton, 2-5 UNH, aand Albany 1-5. Don't know if they can compete with SB 5-1, Vermont 3-3, and UMBC 3-4,. Maybe can compete with Hartford 3-5 or UMass-Lowell 3-5. Maine only AE team without a win so far.

There are only 9 centers in America East 6'10" or better. Stonybrook has 3 - 7 footers and 1 6'11", Albany has 1 6'11" and 1 6'10", UMBC 1 6'10", UML 1 6'10", and Vermont has 1 6'11". Binghamton, Maine, UNH and Hartford have none.

So other than SB Maine matches up size with at least Bing, Hart and UNH come conference games.
