Common Opponent: ALBANY

URI beat Albany by 2 on the Road
DEL beat Albany by 5 at Home.

Any Home Field Advantage you assign greater than 1.5 would give a slight edge to URI.
On paper, this game is about as close as you can get.

I'm an optimist, HensRock.

We beat the Danes by 5, but we really beat them by more...except for that silly hiccup.

Hens by 10.
I went by the Tub today, and the theme song to the Titanic was playing over the speakers.

Sometimes hiccups linger though and for whatever reason we’re having a hard time finding that spring magic. Something has changed and that happened long before Henderson’s injury.

The good news is Rhode Island, despite being ranked, is really nothing special and should be beat by Delaware.

Hens find a way in a nail bitter

CH, this isn’t rocket science here. What changed is the Hens are much less aggressive and all the opponents are taking the games seriously.

Yes 79, much less aggressive is the biggest problem

What happened? I remember the team seemed to be having a lot of fun on Defense in the spring and had responded very well to Manny Rojas.... sideline celebrations !

and just like that it was gone? Did Rocco step in and change things after Plack got hurt?

If so, Memo to Rocco: Plack is back so let’s attack!

^^THIS. And we never seem to play well up in New England any more.
What is going to prevent us from having a "hiccup" in Kingston?

We did play well against Maine at their place. Let me clarify and say we started well and finished well.
GO BIG BLUE!

With Nolan limited, at best, we win by a TD.

Gwynn will not make the couple of bad throws he made last week.

Hens win the turnover battle.

URI QB Hill, meet Mr. Plack.

Though it's always hard playing up north, I was at the URI game in spring and that was a pretty thorough performance by the Hens *in New England*

Means nothing in particular Saturday, though. Just noting that pretty recently, UD managed to hold up in NE.
