Press Roundup, Lehigh vs. Fordham

(Photo credit: Sarah Strackhouse/The Brown & White via the Express-Times)

When times are good for the Rams, Fordham usually gets some decent coverage in what is considered the "media capital of the world".

But when they lose to go to 1-5, even if it is to the No. 8-ranked team in the country, you're hard pressed to find any mention of the Rams in the New York Post, Daily News, or New York Times.

The good news, though, is there's still a lot of press for the Mountain Hawks' accomplishment this weekend.

Sunday Word: Answer

Rarely do "Sunday Word"s come as easily as the one coming out of this weekend.

It was abundantly clear to me when junior WR Ryan Spadola caught his back-breaking touchdown against Fordham that I had both a "Sunday Word" and a new nickname for the Howell, New Jersey native.

"The Answer"'s touchdown grab from senior QB Chris Lum came at the end of the third quarter, where - through a combination of Lehigh miscues and some battling from Fordham - the Rams still had a chance to battle back and make this a football game, down by only two scores.

But a 63 yard post pattern to Spadola - where he easily sped into the end zone - and Lehigh had the "Answer" they needed on how they were going to beat Fordham.
