CAA Week 2 Social Media Round-Up

Week two is in the books, and once again the Colonial Athletic Association provided plenty of highlights around the league. 

Win 700 For Delaware  

The first CAA game of the year more than delivered as Delaware edged Rhode Island in a triple-overtime thriller to give the Blue Hens their 700th win in program history.

It was all Rhode Island in the first half, but quarterback Pat Kehoe found his groove in the second half on his way to a career night. 

Kehoe even got a two-point conversion on this beautifully excited Philly special.

The Blue Hens made sure to take time and enjoy the W Saturday night as well. 


New Field, New Unis, Who Dis?

While it was a heartbreaking loss for Rhode Island, Meade Stadium and its new turf looked beautiful under the brand new lights.

The Rams also looked incredible in the brand new all Keaney unis. 


Stars Shine For Towson

The expectations were higher entering the 2019 season than ever before at Towson. Preseason offensive player of the year Tom Flacco and two-time All-American Shane Simpson are living up to the hype.

How good have they been? Standout wide receiver Shane Leatherbury will one day tell his kid about playing with the duo. 


Defense → Offense

For the second straight game, the Villanova defense recorded a pick-six. This time it was Elijah Trent turning defense into offense for the Wildcats. 


Mr. Steal Your Ankles

Jaylan Thomas had an incredible day on the ground racking up 135 yards and two scores, but none were more impressive than this one. 


Sing It Loud & Proud

The Dukes put on a show Saturday night in their home opener and continued that show into the locker room when Ron'Dell Carter led the singing of the fight song. How good was the performance? You can even see Coach Cignetti crack a smile at the 11-second mark. 

James Madison also continues to produce incredible post-game highlight videos. 


Did He Catch That?

While Maine fell Saturday evening at FBS Georgia Southern, the Black Bears still managed to record some highlight-reel plays. Enjoy Jaquan Blair's insane two-point conversion catch from four different angles. 

Earnest Edwards is not only one of the best wide receivers in the CAA, but he can throw the ball as well. This was Edwards' second career touchdown pass. Also, how bout that toe drag swag from Devin Young?


Home Visit

Before heading out of town for their season opener, New Hampshire stopped by to see the head coach Sean McDonnell. McDonnell is currently taking an indefinite leave of absence from the program for health-related reasons. Get well soon, coach McDonnell.

With Playoffs Within Reach, Maine Looks To Extend Its Win Streak vs. URI

HIGHLIGHTS: Maine vs Elon

Although Maine likely needs to win both of its two remaining games to have any chance of earning an at-large berth for the FCS playoffs, Maine coach Nick Charlton said his team isn’t looking past Saturday’s home game against Rhode Island. URI coach Jim Fleming seems to have one eye on the future, however.

The Big Picture: JMU Is Peaking At The Perfect Time

HIGHLIGHTS: New Hampshire vs JMU

College football plays the shortest season of any major sport. And yet, one can reasonably posit no other game sees teams evolve as profoundly, or fade from attrition, quite as profoundly in three months.
