Screen pass on 3rd and 12? Being outplayed and outcoached

Rocco's done at UD. Has to go.
If we end up with 5 wins or less it needs to be considered.

Hens booed off field at halftime. Richmond leads 28-10.

Hens receive second-half kickoff.

One of the worst Defensive and special teams coverage performances in a while and that's saying something.

Really poor clock management by Richmond.

Tough when you only have 1 timeout to start drive. But yes, last play was ill-advised ( screen pass to middle of field).

TD a must for Hens coming out of locker room for there to be flicker of hope.

Can't say I'm totally surprised by this [lack of] performance...

They really only played two good games this year. This is what they are.

+1 ... Just disheartening. .. For those of us saying 6-6 in preseason, this is the feared inconsistency.

As Rocco said in a recent press conference, "It's no surprise when I lose a game."

I think my posts are going missing?

Again, thanks for the play by play and for providing the score

I started the year being pissed at Kehoe’s play but I truly feel bad for him at this point. He is not himself out there and making really bad mistakes. Almost every throw is a “cross your fingers / hold your breath” situation. If Henderson can’t go which I’m assuming he can’t (and wouldn’t want him to go out there at this point), Id put Paoletti in and see what he has. Can’t be worse. It’s so sad to see how pathetic this university’s football team has become.
Radio team just announced Henderson is available and on the sidelines. Warmed up in pregame. However staff is not going to use him to start the second half.

Long kickoff return Kehoe behind center.

Long completion on first play. Kicking tee was still on field for first play.

Will Knight TD on dive play. UD uses timeout before conversion attempt. Looked liked they were going for 2.

They did go for 2 . Successful. 28-18.
