MU football- Greatest Hawk gridiron moments

Got this just now from MU football SID Greg Viscomi -

"As part of our celebration of the 15th season of Monmouth football we will be releasing the 15 Greatest victories in Monmouth football, one each Friday starting tomorrow (May 25) and leading up to the start of football season (15 weeks from now).

""We are going to put up a highlight video free of charge on the website along with a game story and quotes from players that participated in the game- we are going to try to get the radio calls of those games too if we can and put them up.

My take - Very cool idea in my opinion - check out the MU web site for first one tomorrow.

I think the all-timer (for drama anyway) has to be the tipped catch for the game-winning TD at Robert Morris in 2004.

It's hard to believe MU football is a mere 15 weeks away......(gotta get my Maine maps out)

Phenomenal idea. Here are some of my nominations.

RMU/Monmouth 1998 (was a great game)
RMU/Monmouth 2004
Colgate/Monmouth 2006
Towson/Monmouth 2001 (great win, terrible game {Tony, do you know what national record Monmouth tied that game?})
Monmouth/Albany 2004 (great game, even better comeback)
Monmouth/Jacksonville 2000
Monmouth/Georgetown 2003
Monmouth's first win (can't remember the team we beat)
This is bad, almost all away games but over the years (at least the last 9 years I have been following), it seems most of our biggest wins were away from Kessler. Any real good ones before my time Tony?

JMG: Wish I could help you out more here. I didn't see a whole lot of these games either. MU first win over was over St. Peter's.

Re: national record. Good question.

For 2003, I would add that the Monmouth-SBU game rivaled the Georgetown game for pyrotechnics. And the 2004 season had more than it’s fair share with the Albany game being the best. Steve Andriola played a huge part in Monmouth’s wins those two seasons.

Right..that 2004 season had one Excedrin moment after another.

Hard to believe Miles and Boland were just young players then.

Well, the record setting performance by Monmouth that day is not one to be proud of. They tied an NCAA record by completing ZERO passes that game. First 3 touchdowns of the game were on defense (2 by Monmouth, 1 by Towson). Ending was fantastic as Monmouth stopped Towson on the last play of the game at the half yard line (probably was even a little closer than that).

Hey TG

Its Tim Walker. How about the homecoming game of 1996. The Noreaster game. I believe the field was under a bunch a water. This has to be on the list

Tim -

I don't know if that would make a list of "greatest" gridiron moments...

Wettest??? Definitely.

I think another one of the greatest games gets released tomorrow, I wonder if it will be from 1993 or 1994, two years that the Hawks started to build their tradition. I cant imagine other than the first win in 93, any other games from those years being in the top 10.

Also can you maybe make a new post with the new date when they are released? Maybe it will start some discussion on individual games?

I think your best bet here is to call or e-mail MU fball SD`Greg Viscomi to ascertain this info.

I will be happy to put the gamne write ups on the blog for discussion. I haven't really been following this.
