The Future is correct. Colgate's game plan and play calling is very predictable and has been for two decades. Go to a game or to the Inn after a game and it is a frequent topic of conversation. Works okay within the PL and not so much outside of it.

I really like Colgate's offense and in many ways, it's been the offense that has been the foundation for Colgate's best teams over the past 20 years (which means Hunt should get a lot of the credit for Colgate's best moments). There is nothing more demoralizing for a defense to know (basically) what is coming at you and not be able to stop it. My only point is that the offense is hurt by not having the threat of the ball being thrown down the field and that tends to show itself against the better teams. As for tempo, I think just mixing it up would help/keep the defense on its toes. Unless you are running out the clock, there is an energy to a offense getting on a roll--the best recent example of that to me is that end of the first half against Princeton last year (which was also the last jump ball to Quazza in the end zone).

Navy may also be the best team Colgate has played since #3 Syracuse in '87 (I'm sure there is a team in there I'm forgetting). I have no doubt that this team can beat UNH and anybody else they play this year.

Hope they came out of the Navy game game with the energy and cohesiveness they had at camp mixed with a healthy dose of anger.

Also, for those people who don't like Colgate playing up, Jacksonville State (FCS team) is beating Auburn at the half. Auburn was between a 41 and 47 point favorite in this game. Auburn will probably win but the Jax State kids will never forget the day they went into half beating the #6 team in the country.

Beat UNH!
