Fordham isn't exactly coming in here guns blazing. The Rams are coming off a 7-21 season which saw them finish dead last in the Atlantic 10 (RP-aye-aye-aye!). Their head coach, Tom Pecora, is entering into his second season with the Rams. He coached Hofstra between 2001 to 2010, going 155–126 and having four 20-win seasons.
To be fair, 7-21 is an improvement. They went 2-26 in the previous year.
This will be the third-ever meeting between the two schools with the previous two games won by the Cuse. Coincidentally, we opened the 1982 season against Fordham, beating them 66-44 thanks to 18 points from Tony "Red" Bruin. In 2007, Donte Greene lit up the Rams for 25 points en route to an 80-63 victory.
