As winter approaches, the Northeast Conference fall sports are well into competitive conference play and coming to the end of their regular seasons. The Robert Morris Colonials have six fall teams in the NEC, but only one has a big fan base (if you can even call it that): football. Alas, the initial hype...

The image is still fresh in Derik Abbott’s mind. Effortlessly, he is able to recall the exact play it happened, the exact moment his season prematurely came to an end. Perhaps because it was a scramble. During the opening series of Robert Morris’ Nov. 8 home matchup against conference foe...
