MU football team notes

These are all from MU football SID Greg (Kevin Kolb) Viscomi and are available also at the NEC web site. But there's so much good info I felt it was worth while to run it on our blog as well for comments, etc.

MAC ground breaking Saturday will be at noon, not halftime.....

Monmouth falls to 0-1 on the season after dropping its season opener against the University of Maine… Monmouth is now 4-11 in season openers… Senior Brett Burke had 173 yards of passing on a 14-fo-25 day in his first start under center for the Hawks… Burke hooked up with Adam San Miguel for his first touchdown, a game tying 58 yard touchdown pass… San Miguel needs just three receptions to tie Monmouth great Miles Austin for the school record in catches… Running back Dave Sinisi kept his consecutive games with a touchdown streak going at 13 when he scampered in for a 28 yard score against Maine… Tight end John Nalbone had four receptions for a career-high 49 yards against Maine… Junior Chris Kiley had a career-high five receptions that went for 55 yards… Monmouth defense allowed just 64 yards passing against Maine, the least amount since Oct. 8, 2005 when they held Sacred Heart to just 54 yards through the air… Monmouth’s defense featured nine new starters from last season, including three players who had never appeared in a collegiate game… The Hawks gave up 278 yards on the ground, including allowing two different 100 yard rushers… In the last five years only Albany has had anyone close to two 100 yard rushers, with Dustin Wilson earning 149 yards and qb Nicholas Brazen rushing for 91 on Oct. 16, 2004… Monmouth captain Ayo Falae recorded the game’s only turnover when he grabbed a tipped pass for his first interception of the season… When Black Bear Mark Masterson returned a 50 yard punt for a touchdown in the first quarter it marked the first time in 36 games in which an opponent returned a punt for a touchdown… Central Connecticut’s Donnie Rose returned a 90 yard punt on Nov. 1, 2003, a game which CCSU won 14-10… Junior Matt Sterner led all defensive players with 14 total tackles on Saturday… Jon Stolarz, Kevin Walsh, Joe Cella, and T.J. Cerezo all had 10 tackles against the Black Bears… Redshirt freshman punter Jack Daniels averaged 32 yards per punt in his first collegiate game, pinning the Black Bears inside their 20 twice… True freshman Matt Miller averaged 63.3 yards per kickoff in his first game… MU will host Robert Morris on Sept. 8, where a ground breaking ceremony will be held for the brand new Multipurpose Athletic Center at noon.
