WEEK 2: Bryant at Maine

Stop making dumb mistakes. Capitalize in the red zone.


Honestly, these are the two things keeping this team from winning games this year (or seemingly every year, for that matter). Just win this one. The gauntlet is upcoming.

Bryant opens up with Merrimack this afternoon at 3pm. Should be a slobber-knocker. :roll:

Go for 2 every time. Belcher looks like a natural at TE. He should set a CAA record this year for 2 pt. conversions. Just do it already. Impressed with Ferguson. The more he has the ball in his hand the better.

I realize that at the end of the day, a week 1 poll isn't worth the paper it's written on, but 2 of the 3 don't even mention Liberty? A road win against a Power 5 school and not even a single vote? Come on..

The first poll had them #20 but the other two did not even mention them. Bizzaro, really takes a couple of weeks for things to settle out and have the polls mean something. In the meantime I hope UNH does really well against Georgia Southern so we have something to base last weeks heartbreaking loss against.
