URI football not going to Penn State

January 11, 2013

There will be no trip to Happy Valley for the University of Rhode Island football.
On New Year’s Day, three URI football players tweeted the Rams would play Penn State in the fall of 2013. Rhode Island Director of Athletics Thorr Bjorn wouldn’t confirm the rumor Monday and Tuesday Penn State football’s Director of Operations Kirk Diehl said he hadn’t heard anything about the two teams playing. Tuesday evening URI head football coach Joe Trainer said the game was possible, but it wasn’t a sure thing.

Players' tweets say URI football playing at Penn State in 2013

January 8, 2013

You can’t believe everything you read online.
Or can you?
The University of Rhode Island football team’s 2013 schedule won’t be released for a couple of months, but based on what team members have been saying on Twitter, the Rams will play one of the most storied programs in all of college football next fall.
But a trip to Happy Valley is far from a certainty.

Wasn't pretty, but Rams don't mind in win over Brown

January 4, 2013

KINGSTON – How it looked didn’t matter to Dan Hurley. He didn’t care about the 25.8 percent shooting in the first half, the halftime score that only would be a shootout if it was played next door at Meade Stadium, or having his No. 2 scorer put up a goose egg for the first time in two years.
The aesthetics of the University of Rhode Island men’s basketball team’s play this season isn’t a priority.
Winning is.
