This Samford game.......

In my opinion will be decided by turnovers. Who creates them, and who takes advantage of them. If this game is the irresistible force (Sammy offense ranked 1st in scoring) / against the immovable object (Wofford D #1 in scoring defense) put me on the side of the stout defense. I trust our defense in getting stops better than I can seeing Samford stopping us. Passing the ball almost extensively while being effective is a higher degree of difficulty of success then being able to hand the ball off and run the ball. A couple stops and couple T/Os I think wins this game.

Very interested in watching this SoCon game (on split screens, of course, with Mercer @ VMI & Kennesaw @ Furman) this week.

The "irresistible force..." analogy is appropriate, but I see it as more than that. I would describe these 2 Teams as negative images of one another in terms of personnel strengths, tactical goals, philosophies, etc....which is really cool. Kind of like Alabama vs. Oregon in FBS. I'm looking forward to watching that play out on the field.

I am much more firmly 'in the camp' of the the 'brand' of Football played by the Terriers vs. that of the Bulldogs, BUT with Sammy already having 1 SoCon loss & Wofford having none, and with me being a Mercer & Furman fan, I do have to pull for the Bulldogs to win this one. I will have to shower when it's over though, because I'm going to feel awful 'dirty' afterward.

Gonna be fun! Prayers for a clean, well-officiated, and, most importantly, injury-free game for both sides.

Had a WIDE OPEN receiver on an easy pitch and catch and the ball was overthrown...stuff like that will kill us. The guy had totally beaten all the coverage. And instead we end up punting...

On the other hand, the defense is starting to get it together and look good.

David Marvin NAILS 48 yard FG...10-7 Terriers. Another very ill-timed penalty call probably kept us out of the end zone. The timing of these penalty calls makes me go hmmmmmmm.

And they make total mince meat of our defense, just after I praised the defense...

Another false start in a key situation. Now we have to punt. Undisciplined...

We did not bring our A game to Alabama.

I'm beginning to think this game will be decided by penalties rather than turnovers,
and we're minus at this point.

The Allstate commercial with the crying fan in makeup...I can relate. I think I'll leave go grab a couple of hot dogs so I can calm down.

If a penalty or penalties mess up this drive, I'll need something stronger than hot dogs in the second half.

Nice- good drive and score, 5 minutes off the game clock.

Samford defense has got to be feeling the effects of a lot of plays this half.

Not a terrible half. Gotta play better on defense. Thankfully we get the ball in the second half.

We have to get better pressure on their QB (looks like they are protecting with 6 OL) and not make stupid mistakes on offense. This game isn't over yet.
