Monday Night Quarterback 9/10: Villanova Analysis, Cornell Preview

by Alex Smith, Mike Watts

Bob Ahrens

The Fordham Rams 2012 season is off to a good start. Following a 55-0 beat down at home of the Lock Haven University Bald Eagles, the Rams held the lead at halftime before falling on the road to the Villanova Wildcats 28-13.

Below is the first edition of Monday Night Quarterback with new head coach Joe Moorhead. Mike Watts and I ask Coach Moorhead about many different aspects of the team’s start to the season, and we also look ahead to this weekend’s Homecoming game against the Cornell Big Red.

Fordham Routs Lock Haven in Opener

Fordham (1-0) was in control early in their home opener at Jack Coffey Field.  Head Coach Joe Moorhead got his first win coaching his alma mater, the Rams football program got their 750th of all-time, and Fordham opened their season in style with a 55-0 win over Lock Haven (0-1).

This is the seventh of seven articles that preview the 2012 Patriot League teams.  They are in the inverse order of the preseason poll voting by Patriot League football head coaches and sports information directors, who did not include their own school in the selections.

Fordham was not included in the poll because it will not be able to compete for the Patriot League championship and NCAA automatic bid in 2012, and its games against League members will not count towards the final standings for either team.

Postgame Report: Holy Cross 41 Fordham 21

by John DeMarzo

It was a tale of two halves at the latest installment of the Ram-Crusader Cup at Jack Coffey Field.

In the first half, after allowing an opening-drive touchdown to Holy Cross, the Rams buckled down on defense, forcing three three-and-outs and allowing only seven more points, on a 25-yard touchdown pass from Ryan Taggart to Jon Smith early in the second quarter.

On the offensive side of the ball, Ryan Higgins found Greg Wilson for two long touchdowns of 44 and 40 yards, and Carlton Koonce scored on a six-yard touchdown run as the Rams as Fordham took a 21-14 lead into the locker room.

Bucknell Analysis, Holy Cross Preview

Turnovers and special teams errors are the kind of mistakes that keep football coaches up at night. We don’t know Rams Head Coach Tom Masella’s sleep patterns, but his frustration with such errors during Saturday’s 21-0 loss at the hands of the Bucknell Bison was clear when he sat down with Kyle Kesses and I for the penultimate installment of Monday Night Quarterback.

Georgetown Analysis, Bucknell Preview

by Kyle Kesses

It's simple, everything has gone wrong for the Fordham University Football team in 2011. Saturday was no different. The Rams turned the ball over four times – one that directly lead to a touchdown – and the special teams allowed a 73-yard kickoff return on the way to dropping their seventh straight game, 30-13 at Georgetown.
