Season opening loss

51-13 to SDSU.

We stepped in the ring with a heavyweight, and got slobber knockered. Hopefully no injuries and we can go on to a winning season.

Re: Season opening loss

Tough game when you guys give up so much in size. Your team has great heart and will compete well in the NEC. If you watched the game you can probably see why #19 will be playing Sunday's next year. Your DBs for the most part covered him well, he just has a nose for the ball.

Good luck the rest of the year!

Re: Season opening loss

SDSU would clearly give some FBS programs anything from a beat down to competitive game.

‚ÄčI'm proud of Coach Schmitt and the Dukes for scheduling this game. Not the easiest year to do it after a four year starter at QB departs, and that's not an excuse. SDSU is a powerhouse, so best we could have hoped for in terms of outcome was a closer score.

It's encouraging to know that our program is on the rise.

Go Dukes!

Re: Season opening loss

Judge, I'm glad you had a great time at the game. We are blessed to have many great athletes and more so they are great kids as I'm sure your program has. As stated before, I believe you guys are a class program and will be at the top of the NEC. There are just times you run in to a buzzsaw. This offense has that ability to do that, last year we beat Western Illinois 52-14 in much the same fashion. They had beat FBS Northern Illinois 28-23 just the week before.

Thankfully there were minimal injuries, except for our starting RT(sounds like it may just be a sprain, out 2-3 weeks). Good luck and give them heck in the NEC.
