Georgetown outrushed Fordham, the fifth time they've outrushed their opponent this season.
Oct. 9, 2012
Hoya Notes - Moving on from Fordham and Into Conference Play with Lehigh
From The Desk of Kevin Kelly
Dear family, friends and fans,
Overall we are all disappointed with Saturday's loss, but when I talked to the guys on Monday I did let them know that I was proud of the way they fought and the great intensity they displayed throughout the game with a very talented Fordham team.
Offensively, I thought we did some nice things. We showed great improvement from the previous week and we got back to running the football and any time you score 31 points you should be able to win the game. I got after the defense a little bit on Monday, because like I said, when you score 31 points you should win. We did some nice things on defense, as well, but we lacked consistency, which is something we need to change.
I told the guys, winning college football games is hard. One play can be the difference between a win and a loss. The margin for error is that small. We know that all of our games from here on out are going to be close and we will need to see that consistency. For us, we must improve our consistency in practice, because the way we take our reps in practice might be the difference in a game.
For this reason we are reinstituting the Dan Lenihan Belt Award. Last season, after our loss at Bucknell, Dan rallied the team and began awarding an old weightlifting belt to the team's hardest worker in practice each week. This year, our captains and Kevin Sullivan will elect a player that each week shows the type of physical and mental toughness, courage and intensity that Dan showed for this program. I'll be keeping tabs of the weekly winners and we will be announcing them at the banquet after the season.
Our non-league schedule is finished and this week marks the beginning of our Patriot League schedule and we don't need any extra motivation, with Lehigh coming to town. Lehigh is undefeated and ranked in the top 10 in the nation and none of our guys have forgotten our loss to them in the Patriot League Championship Game last season. It's a game that I'm sure a lot of our guys have had circled on their calendars for a while. We've played two common opponents, with Lehigh defeating Princeton and then beating Fordham on the last play of their game, so we know that we need to have our `A' game to beat them.
We are also excited to be returning home to Multi-Sport Field this Saturday. We have enjoyed great support for our home games and a great atmosphere for the last two seasons and we hope that it continues on Saturday!
Win the Day!
