    · Some close match-ups in terms of the Massey Ratings - which I've included for a change. If you're interested, Massey predictions for Week 3 are here: https://www.masseyratings.com/pred.php?s=cf&sub=11605

    · I’m a little surprised RMU is ranked below VMI in these ratings given that VMI lost to D-2 Catawba last week. I think RMU wins this easily.

    · Curious to see how Wagner plays without their starting QB this week. Massei wasn’t bad last week, but he did have a couple of ill-advised throws that cost them. A full week of practice should help him quite a bit.

    · You have to wonder what is up with Duquesne’s defense. I know they were up 17 in the 4th quarter last week, but they still only won by 5 against a Valpo team that has struggled for a number of years. Maybe Cecchini is finally turning things around out there.

    · I’m still trying to figure out how in the world StFU got Towson to agree to play in Loretto this week. What a culture change from last week’s game at Maryland for the Tigers where they played in front of 37,000. StFU is lucky to get 1,500 on a good day. Hopefully this is the year the Red Flash can pull off the upset and get a measure of revenge after blowing a big lead at Towson last year.

    · I expect Stony Brook and YSU to win, although SHU has played well so far this year, so that could be close. CCSU will likely struggle against YSU’s defense, so I think YSU wins by 25 or more.

    · I’d like to pick Bryant in their game against Brown this week, but their defense has allowed 101 points in two games so it’s hard to pick them this week. Still it would be a nice story if Coach Perry can get his first win against his alma mater.

    Last week – 6-0
    Overall – 12-1

    I think I am going to go out to Loretto for the game this weekend. Should be an awesome atmosphere for an SFU game.

    Ivy League Football: Since the latter half of the 20th century, slowly self-destructing to become irrelevant in the scene that they used to dominate, not too many fans among the younger generations, rusting their potentials in the process.
    Before, I liked a lot about Harvard football. Now, not so much. They are the main perpetrators of why Ivy League football has lost its popularity and it may never go back to what it used to be.

    I really like this matchup, last year I was worried going into this game, but it is basically our run defense vs their running game, The Seawolves still struggle to generate a passing game. We return the whole O line which had a good game @ SB last year

    I'm anxious to see how SHU performs in this game. SHU was picked to finish 5th in the Conference, but anyone who has been following the NEC for a while knows that there's always a team from the bottom half that seems to finish in the top three each year.
