Facts have never gotten in the way of Madram's negative bloviating. Is there anything about Fordham athletics that he likes?

Facts? Have you payed attention to how the league has performed? This is not  about Fordham this is about the patriot  league. If you are so upset about my post I'll change it for you. " The Patriot league is probably the worst fcs conf in the country"

If not the worst , we are fighting with the Pioneer league and the Northeast 10 for the worst, how's that? Make you feel better? A far cry from the dreams of competing with the fcs elite and playoffs runs.

Tell that to Holy Cross.

Go back and read my post

Is this opinion or based on ratings of some sort?

Based on the following list of teams who have beaten up on our league

Monmouth
Sacred heart
Yale
Marist

And just like that the patriot league is back at the bottom. For a second it looked like a conf on the rise but looking at the level of play so far , it's clear how bad this league is.

The only team showing any promise is holy cross , everyone else stinks.

What scheme do you want, an 8 man front?  Great.  Better be playing with he Oakland Raiders defense.  I'd suggest getting very basic the next few weeks and execute a few things very well.

8 man front? They threw for 400 yards hi about a 1 man front

i am having a hard time seeing how we keep eastern Washington under 50 points

Never quoted myself before but I think I deserve this one

AOC what was that you said about defense ?
8  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Eastern Washington @ Fordham on: September 16, 2017, 01:20:35 pm
By playing defense. 

I haven't seen that happen in a long time so it would be a first

Yesterday showed us that every game that we play this year is going to be a dog fight. Going forward every game remaining on our schedule is not a guaranteed W.  In the past 5 years we could circle 5 guaranteed wins.  Not this year.  Zero.  We couldn't even guarantee a W this year against those Commie's from Columbia if they were on our schedule.

Of course you could circle 5 wins a year when you had a massive advantage of offering scholarships when 95% of the teams you compete against each year did not for 3 years. That was fun wasn't it having full scholarships against non scholarship schools . Well the field was leveled and surpassed us.
11  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Fordham @ CCSU on: September 10, 2017, 11:26:07 am
Did you watch or follow this game?  Our opponent today was not Ohio St.  We squeeked by a terrible opponent today.

Well since we play in the patriot league which is a non competitive low level fcs I wouldn't expect to see the Like of Ohio state .. not sure who you think we are but it's an over inflated opinion based on your comments
12  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Fordham @ CCSU on: September 09, 2017, 04:06:18 pm
EWU puts up 60 on us next week.

We are lost.

We are not lost, we're just not any good on defense. This is the philosophy and style of play that we've chosen and have been on this path for a few years now. All skill and talent is stacked on offense and little emphasis is placed on defense. Score 45 and hope to hold  opponent to 44 that's the philosophy and we know that
13  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Fordham @ CCSU on: September 09, 2017, 12:37:02 pm
Well it's 17-0 I guess we know the truth now
14  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Fordham @ CCSU on: September 08, 2017, 10:32:10 pm
Must Win.

In what way? It's a non league game so it's not a must win..
15  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Reminder thread that EWU lost 56-10 and CCSU lost 50-17. It's fine. on: September 03, 2017, 09:35:20 am
Agreed and it will only make it all the more worse if EW blows us out. I like the poster who pointed out that we lead the nation in passing defense. Cant argue with that!  That should be in the official game notes for  Central Jersey Applied Technical Junior College or whomever we play this week.


Haha.. the nations leading pass defense. The "no fly zone" pass hawking best secondary in the country takes the field for this weeks contest. I see lots of good press headlines

Comparing results of different games is for idiots.. it has no correlation and doesn't matter. It will all take care of itself in the field from here on out
17  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Army game on: September 03, 2017, 09:09:41 am
Please everybody stop comparing army to Texas tech and this game to that game it's pointless. We will see eastern Washington on the field soon and it will all be settled. Both teams got embarrassed and at the end of the year nobody will care if they take care of business in league play.
18  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Army game on: September 02, 2017, 03:41:55 pm
We made Army look like an sec team. Our problems are deeper than just playing an FBS team. I watched holy cross all but beat uconn and leave their heart on the field. I also followed the Rhode Island go to double overtime with central Michigan so I won't accept the just burn the tape it was FBS game so move on ..
19  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Army game on: September 01, 2017, 08:51:32 pm
Has a triple option team ever scored 100 without throwing a pass?
20  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Army game on: September 01, 2017, 08:36:12 pm
I'm watching the best RB in the FCS getting his face blasted on every snap because he's pass protecting against blitzing LBs who are teeing off on him because we're throwing the ball 60 times.. he's getting his ass kicked in
21  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Army game on: September 01, 2017, 07:17:32 pm
Army is a  good team this year but we flat out stink right now. I should have turned it off after the 4 straight offensive penalties
22  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Moorhead ESPN / Fordham & Power 5 mention on: August 29, 2017, 07:08:12 am
morons?  that is a classy move.
my inside sources are former PSU players that are very tight with the program.  I guess they are morons too.
Franklin did a nice job at Vandy but two things transpired, first he left the cupboard empty and second the time had some violations.  Not a great way to leave a program.  A friend of mine worked at Vandy and also said they started lowering academic requirements for football during the Franklin era, which aiding his recruiting efforts.  Read my post as I do credit Franking for being a solid recruiter.
I never called him stupid, just saying he passed on play calling to someone else as he couldn't handle it himself.  Although he lacks this skill, he was smart enough to hire someone who could.   
Kliff Kingsbury, did I veer bring up his or any other coaches name?  That would be No.

keep it real


We understand that you don't like Franklin that's fine but if you can't see that he is a GREAT head coach than it's nothing g more than sour grapes. And your inside sources are former players , big deal ! Unless they played in the 1980's, What did they ever win ? Wasn't until Franklin that they finally one something after decades of mediocre football. I have no dog in the fight but I need to call out stupid comments when I see them. And I brought up kingsburry because your analysis of a great coach is someone who calls offensive plays , at least that's what I gathered from your rant on Franklin
23  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Moorhead ESPN / Fordham & Power 5 mention on: August 27, 2017, 02:29:57 pm

That's OK madram, you can mention my name. I am a big boy so I can take it.

Franklin is a good recruiter that is his specialty and lets face it without talent you don't win many games, so to his credit he is a good recruiter.  On the other hand he is a terrible game day coach and is a rah rah cheerleader, which is well known by those who follow PSU Football. Prior to last year he was on the warm seat and to some even on the hot deal.  Many alums and supporters were expecting a turning point in the program and fortunately it happened.  A big part of that was Franklin scooping up Moorhead.  He needed someone who could call plays.  I know folks on the inside at PSU and Moorhead was given full reign of the offense.  You can see evidence of this as you see the games.  Franklin was ga ga over Moorhead in the Rose Bowl as Moorhead stuck gold on several big plays.  His actions were kind of embarrassing for a head coach.  Basically Franklin put all his chips in the pot betting on Moorhead and he won, hence the contract extension.  If Moorhead did not produce Franklin was gone.

Again, I give Franklin credit for his recruiting and being smart enough that he cant call play and outsourced that to his hot shot OC.  On the other hand, he is still a rah-rah incomplete coach, albeit a rich one.  As for those saying he would go NFL, please tell me why.  Franklin is a PA guys at one of the elite college coaching gigs and gets paid a ton of money.  He knew he predecessor did the hard work and attracting kids who could play and get past the Paterno debacle. Everyone knows this was a year rebuild program and he knew the heft lifting was done before him by Reilly.    PSU has been a solid program and will always be a solid program and to make up rumors that Frankliin is going to the NFL is idiotic.  He will ride it out in Happy valley as long as he can.   




 


Ok , you and the rest of your "inside sources "at PSU are morons" ok that's it! Franklin took Vanderbilt to 10 wins and took penn state to a big ten championship. A "bad game day coach/rah rah guy" doesn't do that. An "incomplete coach? Why because he doesn't All offensive plays? Another stupid assessment by you. That's why people hire offensive and defensive coordinators. Whos your definition of a complete coach? Kliff Kingsburry? He calls plays scores 40 but his team gives up 50 and he will be out of a job at the end of the season.  Great Head coaches are CEOs they hire great coaches, bring in great talent , they motivate and their players execute and they WIN!

What are saban , Dabo, bellicheck? Rah rah guys also?
24  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: PL Pick'em Week One on: August 27, 2017, 08:16:48 am
and 'gate beats 23rd ranked cal poly in opener. good show by the raiders! CP showed up in the 4th Q but the 'gate still looked good on D, O was lackluster but certainly got the job done.



I watched the entire game and It was a nice win for gate. Going on the road to the west coast against a quality opponent and petty much dominating for 3 and a half quarters is a sign that gate will be a serious contender in the PL. for as long as I can remember , Colgate is about playing strong defense and running the ball and when they can do those 2 things they usually have a great season.

While everyone else is caught up in the spread and trying to score 50 with little emphasis on defense , Colgate seems to just do it their way. We need our rams to play defense again if we ever have hopes of competing with the fcs best.
25  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Moorhead ESPN / Fordham & Power 5 mention on: August 19, 2017, 07:53:59 am
Franklin gets 35 million bucks over 6 years . I guess those pennstate fans must be pretty upset because " they don't like him" according to our inside sources here on fordhamfans.. I mean why would you like a coach that has revived a program who many thought would be dead .. brought them to a rose bowl won the big 10 and continues to recruit top level talent..
26  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: 2017 Rankings on: August 13, 2017, 07:40:40 pm
Where did you say it the first time?

If you really want to know , go back and read the threads as I don't have time to hold your hand and explain everything to you
27  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: 2017 Rankings on: August 12, 2017, 06:37:30 pm
I will say again that the eastern Washington game is the biggest game in the history of FCS Fordham football. We have them at home and will tell us exactly where we belong amount the fcs national powers.
28  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: 2017 Predictions on: July 31, 2017, 09:18:25 pm
For those that didnt follow  college football last year , Army is a very good team. Not saying we can't pull an upset but I think many people still think this is the same army team we beat .. is not , they are legit
29  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: 2017 Predictions on: July 28, 2017, 06:18:45 am


Any word on what the Athletic Department is doing to market the team this year?  One of the top football players at any-level is playing in the largest media market...  Let's get folks out in-force this year.


[/quote]

This is an interesting point and so far I've seen nothing. If I were in charge of marketing I would make a serious push to get chase invited to the heisman finalist list. Nope I'm not crazy we've seen it with Steve McNair , I remember Gordy lockbaum from holy cross also. Fact is he's the best player in fcs an all time record breaker by the time the season ends.

While I in no way ever believe he would win , I think the school can get a lot of publicity by running a "get chase to the downtown athletic club " type of promotion . Get Fordhams name out there . You would be supposed on how the story would grow legs .

You never know who will emerge.. think back to when Carney graduated and everyone assumed there was an heir apparent. Eakin almost left school before coming out of nowhere as a junior and the rest is history...
