The Fordham Rams continued their pursuit of an undefeated season with a narrow defeat over Holy Cross this Saturday 32-30. Fordham was led, as they have been all season, by quarterback Michael Nebrich who became the first player in school history to throw for over 500 yards.

Fordham found themselves trailing at halftime for the second time this season. Holy Cross QB Peter Pujals took advantage of two Fordham turnovers in the first half. But the Rams came out strong in the second half, giving up just one touchdown to Holy Cross and scoring two touchdowns plus a key field goal from Mike Marando to make it a 9 point lead.

A year after a tightly contested Liberty Cup victory against Columbia (0-1) on the road, the Rams (4-0) overpowered the Lions in front of over 7,000 at Jack Coffey Field, 52-7.  And despite the score at half, 10-0, the game never seemed within reach for the Lions.
The Rams offense were keyed by Carlton Koonce on the ground, scoring two touchdowns in the red zone.  Through the air, Brian Wetzel caught two touchdowns, while quarterback Michael Nebrich worked past a couple of turnovers to turn in another award worthy performance.
On defense, the Rams pitched a shut out for over 55 minutes, Ian Williams forced a fumble off a devastating corner blitz, which Brett Biestek recovered for the touchdown. Williams finished with six tackles, two forced fumbles, and Patriot League defensive player of the week honors.
This week, we welcomed Koonce and Williams to the show to talk about the Rams continued resurgence and the Liberty Cup. We also invited wide receivers coach Mark Dupuis, in his first year on Rose Hill, to explain the mystique surrounding his epic hair, and the play of his even more epic wideouts.  As always, we had Joe Moorhead on to chart the course for the Rams week five opponent, Saint Francis.
