    But this is a game where we should out play the opponent in trenches on both sides of the ball....and if that is not apparent in the first half, it should be in the second half.....if not, the staff was fooling itself with the off season lifting program.

    I feel like we will win but not as handily as we would like. Who knows really? The first two blood baths told us very little about this team. URI isn't a horrific team, but it is a team that we, even as young as we are, should beat comfortably. We'll know more about where we stand after this game.

    I don't understand. Because URI doesn't have an off season lifting program?

    Didn't know they did lines when the opponent is FCS. At least ESPN does not post one in that situation.

    Game has opened as a Pick 'em. This means URI would be favored vs Uconn at home.

    What site? Haven’t seen a legit line from the usual suspects.

    I wonder if URI is feeling disrespected that they’re not a “Block C” game.

    Hmm, if the blue wolf goes on a winning streak, do we have to abandon the Block C?

    I have come to believe nothing these players say about being ready.

    We'll know in the first two minutes who's kidding who.

    Maybe we can find a way to get the ball on short throws to Dixon and let his speed do the rest? He is a threat on KO return but with him and Hergy on the field at the same time who does the defense double? If both it should open up other options.

    I'm curious what we can do when we aren't physically over matched. In a lot of ways this game is like the first game of the season. We should have a much better understanding of what we have.
