While we are good enough to beat Brown, I have seen far too many games against them in Providence that ended in shoot-outs and us on the short end.
Only prediction is our offense right now is incapable of a shoot out and, as always this season, the probability of a win or loss depends on how well our defense and special teams play and our offense does not have a lot of penalties and turnovers.
My hope is Degenhardt has learned from today that when he pump fakes or looks off a defender he will be a lot more successful. Cozier had a great game, let's see more of him.
Now the odds of the Crusaders winning has greatly improved since I can't be at the game. I believe the game will be on NESN here on Cox in RI. I will be watching if they have crowd shots to see how many of "the regulars" are there.
Hope many of you can make the game in person to cheer on our team. It's a short ride down 146!

As some of you know, I will become a father sometime in the few weeks. With my girlfriend's due date pending, I have been and will be staying close to the roost until my daughter is born. So after Annapolis, I haven't gone to any games in person.
However, I wanted to point out for any of those inclined that HC Men's Hockey plays at Providence Friday night (Oct. 11) with the football game following the next afternoon at Brown which is a beautiful place to watch a game. As a fan of both sports, I would have eaten up the opportunity to make an overnight trip out of those two events. I hope many other Crusaders have the same idea and take advantage of the schedule!
As I mentioned in the pickems thread, the brown qb posted some great numbers. Though did have two interceptions against RI (and our defense could very well be the answer there).
brown may be poised for a breakout game as they are building steam.
CD receives player of the week in patriot league, didn’t feel his numbers were that great, but a win is a win in the PL I guess. So... maybe his head is on high and that builds confidence. Or, it builds a false sense of security.
Brown for the win...
Let’s hope our defense and special teams come out strong.
URI is a decent CAA team (very close CAA losses: OT v Delaware, 3 pts v UNH and a wild last second 4 pointer v SBU) and Brown played well in their 3-point loss to URI. ...if URI couldn't stop the Brown QB (420 passing, 92 rushing (!), 3 TDs, 2 Int), we will have great difficulty.
