There Is A College Football Team In New York City That Is Completely Dominating Everyone

1. Meet the Fordham Rams. The proud football team of Fordham University in the Bronx, New York.

2. The Rams have a revered football legacy — ever heard of a guy named Vince Lombardi?

The Rams have a revered football legacy — ever heard of a guy named Vince Lombardi?

Before Lombardi became a legendary NFL coach, winning the first two Super Bowls with the Green Bay Packers and having the Super Bowl trophy named after him, he was one of the “Seven Blocks Of Granite” on Fordham’s offensive line from 1934-36. Naturally, Fordham’s athletic center is named after him.

3. Lately, Fordham football hasn’t quite lived up to Lombardi’s example. In 2010, Quarterback John Skelton became the first Ram selected in the NFL draft since 1968. In three seasons in the league, he has appeared in 20 games and has 63.0 passer ranking.

4. You might have seen Skelton with the Cincinnati Bengals on HBO Hard Knocks this season. He was cut.

He did recently sign with the San Francisco 49ers. He’s a 6 ft. 8 in, 240 lbs. He’ll probably bounce around the NFL for at least a little while.

5. Despite the less than stellar performance the last few seasons — a 22-33 record since 2008 — Fordham went into 2013 with high hopes, a motivated second-year coach, and a number of high-profile recruits and transfer players.

8. Fordham and Villanova play in the FCS, formerly known as Division I-AA. Think of it as the scrappy little brother to the FBS, a.k.a. Division I.

Villanova would not be ranked in the Top 10 in FBS, not even remotely close, but this was still a pretty cool upset by Fordham.

9. Speaking of FBS Division I football teams, next up, Fordham upset Temple University for the team’s first win over an FBS team in school history!

The Rams edged the Owls, 30-29, when Fordham quarterback Mike Nebrich connected with wide receiver Sam Ajala on a 29-yard touchdown pass with 13 seconds left, and the extra point sealed the victory.
