RPI Obliterates St. Lawrence, 49-7
Rensselaer Football raised its record to 3-5 and got its first UCAA win of the season by demolishing St. Lawrence 49-7 at '86 field.
We have been spoiled in recent years by the consistantly high standard of play that the football team has maintained. In fact, it was natural that RPI would receive some criticism from observers this season, if only because the current team suffers in comparison to the 1998 and 1999 teams. However, anyone listening to the game on Saturday on WRPI heard truly bad Division III football clearly illustrated. That was the brand played by St. Lawrence.
You have to feel bad for St. Lawrence's team in the midst of an awful season. But, their performance this weekend did serve a purpose -- it helped to put the Engineers' season in perspective.
