DURHAM, N.H. – Bill Herrion summed it up rather succinctly in the middle of his post-game press conference.
“We’re rock bottom,” said the subdued New Hampshire head coach. “I’m not going to lie to you, we’re rock bottom right now.”
Thursday night’s 51-40 loss to Hartford was the Wildcats’ ninth in a row. It was another game where the offense struggled to get going, and once the defense had some trouble, the game was over. In past years the Wildcats would defend well enough to stay in the game, and the offense had enough to win some games. That’s not the case with this team, and that’s before we get to the fact that they don’t seem to play well together at the offensive end.
