Gray TD in waning seconds secures 11-10 win at UMass

AMHERST, Mass. ? Given a chance to show his skill in a pressure situation, true freshman quarterback Montel White came through in grand fashion. A 15-yard touchdown pass by White to Tre Gray with nine seconds left in the game gave the University of Richmond an improbable 11-10 victory over the University of Massachusetts Saturday afternoon at McGuirk Stadium. "The last play sort of reminds me of a young Eric Ward," said Gray, comparing White to the former Spider quarterback who led them to many comeback wins. "He's calm, he's poised.


Corp out for the year, Hicks to start at QB

The latest injury to the University of Richmond football team may be the toughest for the team to overcome. Junior quarterback Aaron Corp, who transferred to Richmond in January from the University of Southern California, suffered a season-ending knee injury on the first series of last Saturday's 17-0 loss at the University of New Hampshire. The injury occurred when an offensive lineman rolled into Corp's knee. "This is a tough situation for Aaron and our team and we wish Aaron the best as he recovers," Richmond coach Latrell Scott said in a statement.


Game Preview: Richmond vs. New Hampshire

For the first time this year, the University of Richmond football team will travel outside the state of Virginia as it takes on the University of New Hampshire at noon on Saturday. The Spiders last traveled to New Hampshire during the 2006 season which resulted in a 27-17 loss.


Guilty of game-day hill trespassing

I normally don't make bets. In fact, I rarely do, partially because I hate being wrong and partially because I don't like giving myself swirlies. But, when a friend of mine guaranteed me that he and I would be kicked off the hill outside of the football stadium for trying to watch the game, I knew I had to challenge his bet. So there we were, game day, Richmond vs.


Letter: The Audacity of Apathy

As a former editorialist for this very student paper, I know a thing or two about hitting the "Send" button too quickly, about not really thinking things over sufficiently before letting them get to print, about wanting a Mulligan after it's a little too late for one.


Lessons learned after successful Family Weekend

Students braved temperatures in the 90s last weekend to spend time with their families as part of the university's annual Family Weekend and created an on-campus atmosphere that junior Tim Wiles described as similar to Pig Roast. "It was electric," he said.


Letter: Response to "Kick students out..."

While I agree with Mr. Anderton that it was disheartening to see so many students leave this past weekend's football game early, I find his personal attacks to be even more disheartening. To characterize the student body as "self-absorbed and over-indulged group of apathetic human beings" is a vast exaggeration, especially when making such a generalization regarding a football game. There are students on campus that work two jobs, that volunteer throughout the city of Richmond and that stay up late in the library to succeed at this academically challenging institution.


Letter: Kick the students out of Robins Stadium

I thought I was going to get over this, but the more I think about it, the madder I get. I am fortunate enough to have tickets to the Richmond Spiders football games this year, but unfortunately, that also provided me with the opportunity to witness one of the most pathetic examples of student spirit I have ever seen. I'm not sure how many seats there are in the so-called "student section," but by the third quarter of last week's game, it was empty.


Jovan Smith has breakthrough game in loss against Delaware

The University of Richmond may employ a tailback-by-committee attack, but in its 34-13 loss on Saturday to the University of Delaware, it may have found a head for that committee. Redshirt freshman Jovan Smith ran for 102 yards on 10 carries to give Richmond its first 100-yard rusher this season.


Blue Hens' air attack too much for Spiders in CAA opener

In the Colonial Athletic Association opener for both teams, the University of Delaware Blue Hens used their overwhelming air attack, led by quarterback Pat Devlin's 240 passing yards to defeat the University of Richmond Spiders, 34-13, at Robins Stadium Saturday evening. The Blue Hens were first to score with a seven-yard run by freshman quarterback Trevor Sasek, but Richmond defensive lineman Martin Parker blocked the extra-point kick, leaving the score 6-0 to Delaware. That would be the only score of the first quarter, but Delaware's freshman running back Andrew Pierce scored on a two-yard run early in the second quarter.


Game Preview: Richmond. vs. Delaware

Although the Richmond Spiders won their first game of the season last week, they suffered a serious loss with junior wide receiver Donte Boston suffering a broken rib early during the second half. Boston, who is expected to miss at least two to three weeks, had three catches for 57 yards against Elon before leaving with his injury.
