Robert Morris 13 UD 10

After leading 10 after the first quarter the flyers sputter making only 1 of 9 3rd down conversions. Two costly fumbles, 2 missed field goals and the Colonials beat the flyers for only the 3rd time in 20 attempts.

Not a very impressive game by the flyers. Could be a bad start to the season with SEMO coming up next.

Most offensive yards gained by a RMU team in years.

Not having Alex has got to hurt. Won't be back for SEMO either, good chance to start 0-2. He may be back for the Dukes, but if not that one also is iffy. Hopefully he is back for our conference opener, and in the mean time our QB play should improve with more experience. Didn't get to see the game so can't comment on the overall play. Suffice to say that we need to be ready for conference play.

Getting stuffed at the line 8 times isn't necessarily on the QB, he hands the ball off and we can't make a yard. Thats offensive blocking and running backs.

We did have a costly error within field goal range when the ball slipped through the QB hands losing 20 yards and out of field goal range

Looking at the stats, it seems Kyle had a pretty good day. Of course what you do and when you do it is important, and like I said I didn't see the game. Maybe we chalk it up by poor play on many fronts. Looks like RC has things to work on this week.

I was at the game and I do believe this is a much different game if Alex plays. However, I thought the QB play was fine, he was doing what the play calling asked for and while he made a couple mistakes, it was definitely not on him. This is a coaching staff being too conservative with the play calling and allowing him to throw the ball IMO.

Too many times we ran right into the line and they were stacking 7 or 8 guys up there at times. We missed calling a pass play in those situations.

The defense cannot be commended enough. If we don't allegedly fumble there at the 2 minute mark of the 4th quarter we are likely going to overtime and who knows. The defense did everything it could all day long. The RMU backs were big and fast and they played a pretty decent game.

Hopefully, being at home we can step up and play better on offense.

Go Flyers!

Interesting schedule for SEMU, played B 12 Kansas (38-16 loss) one week and non-scholarship Flyers the next. Will be interesting to see how this turns out.

Not to mention, SEMO goes from a recently renovated Power 5 conference 50,000 seat stadium that is 2/3 full to a high school 10,000 seat stadium that is 1/3 full. We should have a psychological advantage through the first quarter.

In all seriousness, these next two games will be very difficult. I agree with CardsFlyer that we need to be less conservative on offense. We had very little to cheer about offensively in the second half. I seriously doubt we'd be very effective with a one dimensional offense these next two weeks.

I thought Bobby Mo just made more big plays than we did.

Go Flyers!!!

Euritt

Any idea why Euritt had no catches last week? He was our most prolific pass receiver last year. I hope they get him involved this week vs SEMO.

I see RM lost to North Dakota State 56-zip. Give them credit for going to Fargo for what was sure to be a butt whipping. Would like to see the Flyers make that trip. Wouldn't win but, asIi have family there, it would be a chance for them to see the Flyers. would take the Flyers +42
