Yet you describe him as a "virus" and "trouble." To me, that says more about YOU than it does about him.

Who called him a virus?

I see no point in playing central Ct.. gain nothing from playing them and only embarrassment when we lose.. I like the stony brook game and it could turn into a great rivalry. Unc charlotte is fine but I can think of about 100 other FBS games that are better for many reasons.

You're making two different points here, and neither explains how sustaining an injury and not fully recovering this season should be a mark against Chase.

NFL teams are not in the habit of using high draft picks on injury prone , undersized ,patriot league running backs. It matters
4  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Bucknell @ Fordham on: November 18, 2017, 07:54:06 pm
the suspensions are a major knock against AB also.  You can't have the leader of your team being disruptive

Actually the suspensions are not a knock on AB it shows he's not afraid to discipline his players , even the starting QB! The starting qb is your leader, this kid has been trouble since the day he stepped on campus and oh yea who knows what he did at his last school .. transfers are transfers for a reason

If Chase didn't get hurt he would have broken Adrian Petersen's all time FCS record IMMHO.  He is bigger than Darren Sproles and just slightly slower.  He can catch the ball out of the backfield and runs with more power. Sproles is the absolute best of the small men in the NFL so this saying quite a lot but I believe it is a fair comparison. Good luck young man. 

Couldnt stay healthy in the patriot league and you're comparing him to sproles who was an all American in the big 12 and an NFL all pro... let's just hope he gets a look and makes the most of it but there are dozens and dozens of running backs playing at a much higher level that would tear up the patriot league so let's see what happens

No idea. The battery in my see into the future machine died.

That has t stopped you up until this point , why now?
7  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Should Coach Breiner be on the "Hot Seat" on: November 18, 2017, 10:51:58 am
Agreed. I donít know why guys here think Franklin is in such a rush to get out of Happy Valley   Itís one of the great jobs in college football.   Certainly a Top 10.  Texas A&M?  Why?  Franklin may be settled in for a long time.  If JM is itching to make a move, he may have to move on.

Those 2 schools would love to hire Franklin and they will throw obscene amounts of money to get him. It's just the way the sec is now. After gruden and the others say no, franklin is the best guy to excite the sec fan base. Franklin seems like the type that is a climber and a mover and I think fighting Michigan and Ohio state every year could mean lots of third place finishes. He can jump to the sec east and compete right away.

Seems to me thatís the sign of a smart coach. Get as many good assistants as possible.  AB take note!

ok let's see what happens when both Tennessee and Texas am offer Franklin 8 mill robe the new head coach. Does psu annoint JM like many on here believe
9  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Should Coach Breiner be on the "Hot Seat" on: November 17, 2017, 11:49:18 am
I don't think it's an issue of finding the right assistant coaches. The recruiting and philosophy of the the head coach going back to JM and continued by AB had been to load up on offense and pay little attention to defense. They took the big 12 philosophy of first team to 45 wins.. score fast and score more than you're opponent .. I've never seen this philosophy work consistently or win big.. yea you light up the scoreboard beat up on bad teams put up stats and keep fans excited.

Defense and power running are starting to come back as football usually comes full circle as people adjust to the new offenses.. anyone still using the run and shoot, wildcat, wishbone not really .. this spread em put up tempo had its time but things are swinging back to real football. The Texas techs and oregons of the world are no longer different or special .. defenses caught up and now they can't stop anyone because they have a philosophy that no longer works .. so either give AB another year to fix it or Hire a HC that cares about playing defense
10  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Should Coach Breiner be on the "Hot Seat" on: November 14, 2017, 08:39:02 am
Is Ed Argast available?

All this talk of firing our coaches and national searches to hire the next hot coach and This if who you come up with? A journeyman offensive line coach from the northeast.
11  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Should Coach Breiner be on the "Hot Seat" on: November 11, 2017, 12:49:47 pm
So it was "insane" to fire Ed Foley?

What's needed is an end of year review. Interview with the coach and AD and admins and see if all are comfortable with the direction of program.  Who knows, maybe he has a really good game plan and some transfers, recruits that could be promising. Or perhaps, this type of vetting after two years will reveal he is definitely not the right guy. Knee jerks not needed. That's likely what got us here in the first place.

The overwhelming majority of the posters here who are in the know, indicate that this was a hire that was taken out of Roach's hands.  If in fact this hire was not really his, then Roach deserves to do the vetting here now, and make the call. 

Yes I think ed foley should have been given another year.. clawson left at the right time no more eakin, Watson or Dudley . No more kornegay no more McGrath .. loads of talent Gone.. foley was building back and never had a chance .. masella won a pl championship shortly after .. I think constant turnover is bad .. football is not a year to year sport. It's about recruiting and building a program not firing a coach because he has 1 bad year
12  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Should Coach Breiner be on the "Hot Seat" on: November 11, 2017, 11:48:04 am
"Another year to turn this around"? "The opportunity to dig out"?

Not rare concepts, but not usually ones used to refer to situations that the coach created himself. If he needs to turn things around, it is b/c he turned them the wrong way given that he inherited a Top 25 program. If he is digging out, it is b/c he buried himself.

He should not be afforded such luxuries, but my gut tells me he will.

Please stop with the " he inherited a top 25 program" . Each year is a brand new season and is different. Different players , chemistry is different , schedule is different. Just because you were once in the top 25 doesn't mean you have a god given right to remain there. I'm sorry but firing a coach after 2 years is insane, especially when you schedule army and eastern Washington to open the season. Clawson was like 3-19 in his first 2 seasons and had the luxury of playing at peters , Fairfield, cw post , new haven ,Columbia ooc.. clawson NEVER beat lehigh... give AB another year ..

I had heard from multiple people that the team was divided (scholarship v. non-scholarship) and it had a serious impact on the team's performance.

I wasn't in the locker room, so cannot confirm, but this was something I had heard from multiple people - including some players on that team.



That's just another excuse in a long line of excuses. When you strap on the helmet and it's 3rd and 2 vs Lehigh or Colgate you either get it done or you don't.
14  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Coach Moorhead doing well on: November 05, 2017, 04:26:56 pm
Coach Joe needs to get out of Dodge ASAP and distance himself from Franklin.  What a wing-nut Franklin is.  I love him blaming the "distractions" on why they lost.  How bout how Franklin has not prepared his team to deal with distractions.

He is a clown. I would love to watch someone run the score up on him like he did to the Little Sisters of the Pool College earlier in the year.

One more loss and JM may have to adjust the expectations of his next job
15  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Holy Cross @ Fordham on: November 05, 2017, 08:07:23 am
Thought the guys played hard and dealt with that horrible opening series weíll to battle back.  That said, by the start of the 4th it looked like we gave up to my eyes. 

I thought the new QB looked good overall.  Whatís the story on why Medlock was brought back in?  I couldnít figure out the shuffling in series between 14, 8 and 7.  Iím sure with Anderson it was just if he felt like he could play on a series or not.  Kid got crushed and is tough as nails.  Why not just ride the future of the program when he came out then?  Did he get hurt too?

D is beyond atrocious.  Adeyeye played his heart out.  Cunningham is a player.  Thorpe with an awful penalty when the comeback was still possible.  DBís are so bad it defies description - both covering or tackling.  The joke whenever HC had 3rd and anything more than 9 was that they had us right where they wanted us.

Congrats to Chase on breaking the record and also for giving us flashes of the old Chase.  Longi also a helluva player

Dude we got blown out by a bad team what are you taking about
16  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Holy Cross @ Fordham on: November 05, 2017, 07:49:37 am
Sorry i missed the action over the past week or so. My US mobile phone was destroyed in a rainstorm and I was offline. How has the team been doing?

Madram, I see you started a thread about me. Is there something that I can help you with. Would you like me to send you a box of tissues?

Haha yea it's funny how those rain storms happen when the team wins but when they lose suddenly there are verizon stores anxiously ready to fix your phone.. 
17  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Coach Moorhead doing well on: November 04, 2017, 11:27:36 pm
And yet here you are, responding to a post of mine. Do you even read what you post.  Roll Eyes

When you address me directly I may respond .. nobody gets a free pass
18  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Should Coach Breiner be on the "Hot Seat" on: November 04, 2017, 11:15:33 pm
Any chance al bagnoli comes uptown ?
19  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Coach Moorhead doing well on: November 04, 2017, 11:07:33 pm
Can you ever disagree with a poster without coming off as a jerk?

AOC is a big boy.. he can dish it it out and he can take it .. no harm no foul .. don't worry about me or address me unless you have something of value to add. I stopped paying attention to you a long time ago..
20  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Coach Moorhead doing well on: November 04, 2017, 12:53:29 pm
Not a problem at all. I liked the 80s. Fun decade.

I believe Fleck, who is the Coach weíre talking about has other motivations.  I saw him speak at a clinic. Different guy. I think he wants to be a legendary coach, not just a wealthy one.  Not many legends coming out of Gopher Land. 


So you paid your 50 bucks to hear fleck speak at a clinic one time and you're suddenly an expert on the subject.. sounds much like the rest of your posts on here. Random coach speak , cliches , blah blah random football terms and hope that you can fool people into believing you actually know something ..

I hope  you got a free pen and a bowl of soup at that clinic also..
21  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Coach Moorhead doing well on: November 03, 2017, 06:32:07 am
Problem is that most of you are still stuck in the 1980's mindset.. its not just about Nebraska , Oklahoma , Alabama and Norte Dame anymore.  Now almost every major team is paying 2 million plus to their Coach and every team is on national tv. Maybe you don't win a national championship at minnasota or tcu or Virginia tech or Stanford or Mississippi state or Michigan state or Wisconsin but it's not a bad place to be. Someone go ask the following people how those dream jobs turned out

Al golden , Bill Callahan , Ron zook , Charlie Weiss , Charlie strong , Jim mcelwain , soon to be mike Rielly , Brett bilema , butch jones ,

22  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Coach Moorhead doing well on: November 02, 2017, 09:16:28 pm
it is just comical......your pea-brained responses are really out of touch.  AOC was making a statement about career suicide with Fleck.  He goes 13-1 at Univ. of Bumbleville Michigan..... and then jumps to Minnesota and makes good money and has a very average team.  Why jump to Illinois, Indy, Purdue or Minn?  I guess for the money, but you aren't moving on from there because you can't build a sustainable program there.  He stays one more year at Bumbleville U and goes 11-2 or better and he can make the next jump.  You already see it with Scott Frost.  He will be the head coach at either Nebraska or Florida next year.  I hope that coach Joe takes his job at Central Florida.  That is the best option Joe will get.  He succeeds there and then the sky is the limit.

We are all now dumber for having read your post
23  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Coach Moorhead doing well on: October 31, 2017, 06:52:42 pm
I hope nobody on this board ever has a say in hiring coaches because some of the logic used on here is scary for people who claim to know football.
24  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Coach Moorhead doing well on: October 31, 2017, 03:21:24 pm
Chaka and Madram....I guess reading comprehension is not one of your strong suits.....yes, We all agree that Fleck is  making good money and yes if he wins 6 to 9 games per year he will be there for a long time....if this is what he wants then great.   Does he have aspirations for bigger and greater goals?  Bama aint coming knocking on his door.  I agree with AOC, he was one of the hottest and best up and coming young coaches, but he aint going anywhere with the current state of his program.

You are beyond clueless , really and truly you are . He's 8 games into his first season at a program that was in turmoil from sexual assault claims. He's recruiting great .. seriously you have no clue
25  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Coach Moorhead doing well on: October 31, 2017, 07:02:54 am
AOC is talking about Fleck derailing his career professionally not financially.  Yes, He is making good money at Minn. but they are 4-4 this year.  He isn't going to win the Big 10 at Minnesota let alone the BCS.  Will he be financially set?  Yes, but will he get that "College Royalty Job"....not the way things are going.

Derailing his career professionally? You are insane
26  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Coach Moorhead doing well on: October 31, 2017, 07:00:32 am
I agree overall and also think that it's waaaay too early to say whether or not Fleck made a good call.  He seems to have them playing well and if he can have a year in the next 2 - 3 where he piles up 9 wins or more, he'll get scooped up by a bigger P5 school and not just because he's so good at self promotion (he is).  The B10 West is weak other than Wisconsin although I do expect to see Purdue break through to become a winning program given their investments in facilities and I also think Brohm is a very good coach.

Fleck signed a 5 year contract and is getting paid almost 4 million a year with built in annual raises. They have a nice new stadium, play in a very weak division and if he wins 8 games a year and goes to bowls consistently he will have a job for life. He made a great decision , no need to jump anywhere.
27  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Coach Moorhead doing well on: October 29, 2017, 09:11:36 pm
Scott Frost will be going to Nebraska.  Coach Joe will get a look at the Univ. of Florida job, but will most likely end up at Central Florida or somewhere like that.

JM has no chance whatsoever at the Florida job .. 0 none not chance
28  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Ace what's up? on: October 29, 2017, 09:25:01 am
Ace why did you lock my thread calling out HK ? Why do you allow him to incessantly post negative and hateful comments about our head coach even calling for "a public hanging" but you lock my post? Seems strange that you would do that .. why would you lock it? Be fair ace your way off base here
29  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Coach Moorhead doing well on: October 29, 2017, 09:18:26 am
Despite the loss yesterday, amazing redemption for Charlie Strong this year. I hate that PSU lost, it means ND will now be in the conversation..

UCF having an incredible year.  Scott Frost to Florida?

Charlie strong? What has he done ? He took over a pre season top 25 team loaded with talent.. he won't even win his conf .. he's a fraud
30  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Lehigh @ Fordham on: October 28, 2017, 06:54:00 pm
This is a bad league.  Painful. We can win out.  AB isn't dead yet.

You are correct sir ! Please see my patriot league is the worst conf in country thread
