calls like that will find some fans liking it and others not. I am very happy it worked out for Gate.
I wonder if Hunt makes that same call if the D wasn't so bad at holding 4th quarter leads?

My guess is the players wanted to go for it on 4th and 1 and get the win. This is their game and they would share the results.

We were only 4-13 on 3rd down conversions. That is terrible, it kills momentum, and any improvement there could turn this Colgate team around. Melville had some brilliant plays but also made some terrible, soft, lateral passes while others he threw were well out of bounds. If he decides to run, he must aim for the 1st down marker and not come up a yard or two short as often as he does.

It was an exciting game; not sure where this Georgetown team came from but glad we're now 12-1 against them. Their wins out of conference are lackluster. We needed this one so congrats to all for the gritty win on the road!

Afriyie is damn impressive...the NFL could be a real possibility for him. Hope he gives Fordham fits!
