RPI Jumps Out to a 13 Point Lead over Hobart, Then Gets Crushed
If it wasn't clear from last week's report, the RPI Football Team has lost strength on both sides of the line of scrimmage since the end of last season.
In their third game, the Engineers met the Hobart Statesmen on '86 Field. They jumped out to a quick 13-0 lead, converting two Hobart turnovers. Hobart answered with 54 points and 536 yards of total offense, doing to Rensselaer what Rensselaer did to many teams last year.
RPI Head Coach Joe King summed things up nicely:
We're not the same team. We don't have the same players; we don't have the same coaches. We need to find ourselves, and hopefully we can do it soon and win a couple of games.
Next week the Engineers take on Coast Guard for The Shotglass Trophy.
