Subject: Looks like we'll ratchet up the passing offense for Fordham, no ?

There's always the flipside of a significant offensive achivement like Holy Cross's 500 yards passing today against Fordham.

Fordham's D gave up 500 yards passing in a game.

The previous week, Penn's Andrew Lisa finished 24-for-37 for 263 yards and three touchdowns in his first collegiate start. This was in a come from-behind blitz ( behind 10-35 in the 2nd quarter ) after giving up three turnovers in its first five possessions.

Fordham needed a last minute field goal to beat Penn and overtime to overcome H.C, today.

Fordham is good. But they put their pants on, one leg at a time, just little bit differently than others in the P.L.. At the least the game with the Rams, after the bye week, should be a game!

I'll take Melville throwing for about 190, no fumbles, only two penalties and the RB's having a stellar game. Oh yeah, and the D holding Fordham to 100 or so on the ground. It's finally a home game which helps. Go 'gate.
