They have a nice grandstand on the home side and nice big videoboard, but it feels like playing in an open pasture in New Jersey.

Arute can have a nice cozy feel compared to Kessler.

If CCSU added to Arute again,
- could a second deck be added to the west grandstand?
- or could there be wrap around seating at the south end zone

Both options would be awesome. I am however happy and content with our current setup!

I’m far from an expert but I’m wondering if the lack of confidence in the FG unit caused Mac to go for it on 4th down.

Love the offense and defense!

Playing great, keep it up.

Our punt return is scaring the the hell out of me. If we aren't going to catch punts, then keep your head up and stay away from the ball.

I can't say enough positive things about O and D, but the special teams is a flat out liability!

Need to put this game away and not let it come down to something late in the game.

Albany tightening up on defense. should have struck on one of the other posessions.

Yeah. Albany putting the pressure on Winchester.

Penalties are killing us. Can't expect to convert many 2nd and 20. Have to be more disciplined!!!!

Almost shut out Albany in the 1st half. NTB!

Ugh ... what a momentum changer.

Couldn't have ended that half worse. After doing nothing all game, Albany drives down the short field for a TD.

At worst, CCSU should be up 10-7, best case would have been 14-0.

Need to regroup during the half. No more stupid penalties!!!! I'm tired of watching undisciplined play. We have 5 penalties for 49 yards!

Edge to Albany.

-Central dominates the stats in the 1st half on everything but the score.

-Albany gets the ball next and can get a big lift with a score.

-Central aborts a couple of drives with stupid penalties. A hold that was no factor in the play and an uncontrolled emotional reaction by Excelhome
These are just as good as turnovers

-Playing a prevent defense at the end of the 2nd half, prevented several things. Your defense lost momentum and Albany's offense gained it. It also prevented Central from going into the half with a lead

And we now have trouble covering the pass. Two plays. Choking when it counts. Again

Now let’s see how this team reacts.

Do they fight back or fold?

This is bad. Struggling kicking game is being polite. It sucks!

Need the defense to make a big play.
