The Rams' dream 12-2 season comes to close with a 48-28 loss against Towson in the second round of the FCS playoff. Michael Nebrich threw for 394 yards and 4 TDs, but that wasn't enough as Towson's Walter Payton finalist Terrance West rushed for 3 scores and quarterback Peter Athens threw for another 3. Towson will advance to the quarterfinals, while Fordham heads back to Bronx. 

It was an unexpected season for the Rams after going 1-10 two years ago and 6-5 last year. Coach Moorhead's squad exceeded many expectations and was even ranked in the FCS top 5 in the polls at one point. The Rams were in this one the entire way too, with a 21-21 tie going into halftime. In the second half, however, the offense sputtered and the Tigers' offense proved too much for the defense to handle. 

The Rams went down 21-7 early, but two touchdown passes from Michael Nebrich and some luck, with a kickoff glancing off a Towson player that Fordham was able to recover, the Rams found themselves all tied up. In the second half, Athens started quickly, throwing a 46 yard touchdown and would keep the lead the rest of the game. 

Mack Rosenberg, Michael Watts, and Nick Logerfo break down today's loss and recap the entire game. The guys highlighted Dan Light's impressive day, despite the game's outcome and talked about Athens' tremendous performance. 

Matt Moro caught up with Coach Joe Moorhead for his reactions after the loss.

Jack Coffey Field was silent a mere two weeks ago when starting quarterback Michael Nebrich left the Bucknell game with a knee injury. Today, the Fordham fans cheered once again as he returned to the field. The Rams fell last week without Nebrich, but the offense took off with his return, marching 65 yards in under two minutes to give Fordham a 7-0 this afternoon. They would not look back. Fordham scored four touchdowns on their first four drives of the game, and when all was said and done, the team racked up 8 trips to the endzone. 

Wide receiver and punt returner, Brian Wetzel, had half of those - three through the air, one an 81-yard punt return. Tebucky Jones was the team's leading receiver with 224 yards through the air and one touchdown. On the ground, Carlton Koonce rushed for nearly 150 and added 2 scores of his own. 

Fordham, ranked 11/12 heading into the game, now awaits the decision of the NCAA Selection Committee on November 24th.

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.

The last time Fordham beat Villanova, Warren G. Harding was the president of the United States. The Rams snapped a 93 year losing streak to the Wildcats with an emotional 27-24 win over the eighth best team in the FCS.

Unknown ObjectOn the One on One post game report, I talked with the game’s announcers Mike Watts and Nick Logerfo about the keys to success for the home team.
