    KO at noon.

    Pards have had some common opponents... WM, Lehigh, Colgate. Wonder if they will share?

    I was a bit underwhelmed when I saw them at Lehigh. But, UNH should still win the game.

    Very surprised that UNH outbid Pards for home game.

    Re: Lafayette at New Hampshire

    Super happy with this first round seed, and I don't even mind playing Maine in Rd. 2 at Maine. It's always tough to beat a team twice, but we've pretty much had Maine's number for the last 12 years. I'm curious of what happens to the Brice-Cowell musket if we lose to Maine. I'm assuming it stays in Durham as the playoff game won't be considered an "official" rivalry game.
    UNH IS a football school

    Lafayette was, by far, the best team that Lehigh faced at home all season. That being said, I think UNH has improved substantially since September, much like the Pards. I expect this to be a shootout, as long as Tavani doesn't botch this one.

    Lafayette a much better team than AGS is giving them credit for IMO. They will be tough for UNH and anyone who faces them. The key is for them to play mistake free football on the road and keep it close early IMO.

    Lafayette has to figure out how to actually win some of these big games and not just keep them close. They have the talent to win, but they aren't used to it.

    You're right, Lehigh and Fordham don't count.

    I meant outside of the conference. You have proven you can win the conference and represent respectably. The next step is to start winning some big OOC & playoff games.

    Re: Lafayette at New Hampshire

    I expect a pretty close game; UNH has been MUCH better defensively than they were earlier this season (haven't allowed over 20 points in a game since they lost to Towson), but I don't think the Patriot League play from earlier this season is much of a representation of what to expect in this one. We played Colgate without their starting QB (obviously makes a huge difference) and the Lehigh team that beat us earlier this year was probably worse when they played and lost to Lafayette. I don't put much stock into that, but ultimately, simply expect a good, solid game. Probably some points, but we'll see.

    Personally, just happy to be in the playoffs and looking forward to the matchup. I actually am one of the few who thought Lehigh belonged in the playoffs.
