University of Maine football coach Joe Harasymiak joined us on our show Monday and talked about the Black Bears’ big win at Delaware. The 28-21 victory was the team’s fourth straight over the Blue Hens and gave Maine their first CAA win of the season.
Coach Harasymiak praised quarterback Dan Collins, who threw for 307 yards and three touchdowns. Harasymiak explained that Collins is progressing well in his understanding of a whole new offensive scheme, and said his check-down pass to Nigel Beckford on a key third down was evidence of his growth.
The Black Bears look for their third straight victory on Saturday, as they host #17 Albany (4-1) in a 12:00 p.m. game at Alfond Stadium. With Homecoming Weekend and a good weather forecast, the hope is that the crowd could challenge the stadium record of 10,049, when Maine hosted Northern Colorado.
