• The Bears only ran for a combined 51 yards on 24 carries
• Maine had 6 first downs, Delaware had 21. - three of Maine's came from penalties, only 3 were the result of offensive plays
• The Blue Hens outgained UMaine 370-112 in total yards
• Up next for Maine is Albany this Saturday at Alfond Stadium - The Great Danes won at UNH to start the season
The voice of the Black Bears - Rich Kimball - joined The Morning Line to recap week 1 and he says take everything that happens with a grain of salt.
It's not going to be a normal season, so normal expectations need to be tempered.
