UNH football Back To School Survival Kit


#leadingthecharge — It’s hump day and today’s lecture is all about powering through and finishing strong. New Haven did that last season when inside the 20. As we approach the Chargers’ first exam on Saturday at Ralph DellaCamera Stadium against Merrimack, let’s take a look at some things UNH will need to do in order to ensure another Northeast-10 title.

RED THE BOOK ALREADY: The M.O. on the Chargers last season was, if they get in the red zone put it on the board. In 2011 the Chargers scored 85.2 percent of the time they got inside the 20. If New Haven is to repeat as NE-10 champs, they’ll need to be as efficient once again. The Chargers scored 40 touchdowns while in the red zone and were only picked off three times. Junior running back Mike DeCaro is tough to bring down and senior quarterback Ryan Osiecki has enough weapons passing the ball that a fade route is almost automatic. Red zone efficiency will equal another conference title at Ralph DellaCamera Stadium this fall.

Keep checking here all week for more on what the Chargers will need to do in order to capture another NE-10 title in the inaugural NE-10 Championship Game on Nov. 10. Also, visit the blog on Friday for a comprehensive UNH season preview.
