    Hmmm, I wonder why??

    Could it be because Ricky was very, very ordinary against a pretty dreadful (2-7) Northeastern team??

    That's right, a team that had one win going into the game against New Hampshire not only won, they hammered UNH, 31-13... Santos was 19 of 31 for 196 yards, 1 TD and 2 ints...

    The most amazing stat of all, and it is AMAZING, is that UNH had the ball less than 12 minutes the entire game (11:47, to be exact)... they had a total of 270 yards offense...

    Kinda puts a crimp in Ricky's Payton Award hopes, wouldn't you say?? Especially now that New Hampshire is at 6-3, and might not even wind up going to the FCS playoffs (they still have a shot, but it's no sure thing)...

    Yes,
    Game was played in torrential rains. Santos had a bad game by his standards. The defense is terrible and yes Payton now a longshot.

    Halftime Umass 10-7,

    Great game to dat. Umass has a few stud players. ILB and a 6-5 WR to keep an eye on. Santos by box score is having a bad 1st half. Two interceptions - One a throw up in corner of end zone where corner made the play and a second dropped pass deflection not his fault.

    Umass dominated game but Santos got a late TD to keep game in hand. Santos had a 4th down conversion on drive that needs Utube. He literally was stopped and carried a massive pile 5-6 yards that was unbelievable. Umass is clearly the dominant team here.

    Santos needs to do some majic to win this.

    And this week, UNH lost another game... Santos was 27 of 40 for 221 yards (LOUSY YPA average, 5.5)... 0 TDs, 2 ints... New Hampshire racked up all of 7 points in the game...

    Looks like Ricky did a lot of dumping off in this game...

    You watch the game? Or reading boxscores?

    Umass dominated this game at every level. Santos 2 picks were a close jump ball and a deflected "drop" not his fault.

    Santos had maybe the most impressive 4th down runs, conversions I have ever seen. He carried a pile 6+ yards after stopped. Umass overwhelmed their OLINE and UNH DEFENSE SUCKS.

    That all said Santos may indeed may be playing himself out of 5th round draft status to 7th / UDFA like Romo was.

    What do Ricky Santos, Drew Bledsoe, Fakhir Brown, and The Shanle all have in common?






    They all suck like a thousand dollar vacuum cleaner.

    SANTOS LEADS UNH TO 7-4 RECORD WITH 39-14 VICTORY OVER MAINE
    11/17/2007
    BOXSCORE
    DURHAM, N.H. – Senior quarterback Ricky Santos (Bellingham, Mass.) moved into third place on a pair of NCAA record lists in his last regular season game to help lead the University of New Hampshire football team to a 39-14 win over the University of Maine on Saturday at Cowell Stadium in the team’s final regular-season tilt.
    The win improves the Wildcats’ record to 7-4, including 4-4 in the Colonial Athletic Conference, while Maine drops to 4-7 overall and 3-5 in the conference.
    Santos submitted another big game as a Wildcat, completing 25-of-32 passes for 355 yards and four touchdowns. His 12,961 yards move him past Willie Totten and into third place on the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision’s all-time career passing yards list. Totten, who finished his career with 12,711 yards, was Jerry Rice’s quarterback at Mississippi Valley State.
    The Wildcat co-captain also moved into third place on the NCAA FCS’ all-time career passing touchdowns list when the ‘Cats used a bit of trickery to land Santos his third touchdown pass of the afternoon. A reverse flee flicker, beginning with senior wide receiver Keith LeVan (Waltham, Mass.) and freshman wide receiver J.T. Wright (Agoura Hills, Calif.), and ending when Santos hit junior wide out Mike Boyle (Plymouth, N.H.) with a 49-yard strike with 8:39 remaining in the third quarter, gave Santos his 120th career TD pass that eclipsed the 119 of Steve McNair. LeVan also moved up a record list of his own. His six grabs on the day give him 196 for his career, and moved him from fourth to second place on UNH’s all-time career receptions list. David Ball, who broke Jerry Rice’s NCAA FCS all-time records for touchdown passes and 100-yard receiving games last season, is first on the list.
    Santos connected with Boyle on his first two TD passes of the game, a 58-yard bomb in the first quarter that put the ‘Cats up 10-0, and a 10-yarder that maintained their 10-point edge. Boyle finished with seven catches for 170 yards and the three touchdowns.
    A UNH safety off a blocked punt by junior defensive back John Clements (Hammonton, N.J.) increased the Wildcat lead to 12. After freshman wide receiver Terrance Fox (Piscataway. N.J.) returned the ensuing kick 47 yards to the Maine 6-yard line, sophomore running back Chad Kackert (Simi Valley, Calif.) took the ball into the end zone for an 8-yard score to put the Wildcats on top 26-7.
    After Santos’ record-breaking toss blew the game open, he hooked up with sophomore tight end Scott Sicko (Stillwater, N.Y.) for his fourth touchdown pass of the game, to give the Wildcats a 39-7 lead just 16 seconds into the fourth quarter.
    Jhamal Fluellen equaled Maine’s longest pass play from scrimmage in school history when he caught a pass, found a hole and raced 84 yards up the left sideline untouched to bring the Black Bears within three (10-7), 4:13 into the second quarter.
    UNH has a slim chance of making the NCAA FCS playoffs. They will find out if they make the 16-team field during Sunday’s NCAA selection show, which will be aired live on ESPNU at 3:30 p.m.

    FOOTBALL TO BATTLE NO. 1 NORTHERN IOWA IN NCAA FIRST-ROUND MATCHUP
    11/18/2007
    CLICK HERE FOR FULL CHAMPIONSHIP BRACKET
    DURHAM, N.H.—The University of New Hampshire football team was given the opportunity to play another day on Sunday night when the Wildcats were selected to compete in a first-round game vs. No. 1 ranked University of Northern Iowa in the NCAA Division I Football Championship on Saturday, Nov. 24. Game time is set for 6:35 p.m. Central (7:35 Easterm Time) at the UNI-Dome in Cedar Falls, Iowa.
    The 7-4 Wildcats and 11-0 Panthers are both familiar with each other and with playing in the FCS playoffs. UNH is the only team in Colonial Athletic Association history to advance to the Quarterfinals three consecutive years (2004-2007) and UNH is now in the playoffs for the fourth straight year. It was a great day for the CAA as the conference became the first to ever have five teams in the playoffs, with Massachusetts, Richmond, Delaware and James Madison all making the field of 16 teams along with UNH.
    UNI and UNH met in the quarterfinals of the 2005 playoffs. UNI scored a 24-21 victory over the No. 1-ranked Wildcats in Durham, N.H., on Dec. 3, 2005. It marks the only meeting of the series between these two squads.
    UNI is making its 13th appearance in the FCS playoffs. The Panthers have posted an overall mark of 15-12 in the playoffs. New Hampshire is making its sixth appearance and has an overall playoff record of 3-5. Last season UNH posted a victory over Hampton (41-38) in the first round and lost to Massachusetts in the quarterfinals (24-17). In 2005, the year UNH played UNI, the Wildcats defeated Colgate in Durham in the first round (55-21). In 2004, UNH won at Georgia Southern (27-23) and was defeated at Montana in the Quarterfinals (47-17). UNH also lost in the first round of the NCAAs to Appalachian State in the first round in 1994 (17-10 OT) and lost to Samford in the first round in 1991 (29-13).
    Fans interested in purchasing tickets to the NCAA FCS first-round playoff game can call UNItix at 319-273-4TIX (4849). The game can be heard live on the UNH Sports Radio Network and television information will be released as soon as it becomes available...
