What are we doing? Against a team that runs the same offense as us we allow them to drive the whole field and hold the ball 8 minutes. Then we decide to pass after getting over 4 yds on first down. Are we someone else? Looking for Wofford football?????

Fortunately, El Cid can’t pass well and gave it back.

Stoddard is Socon Offensive POW and not in the game. What is going on? Delay of game? Look like a DII team. This is embarrassing!

It's so bad the Citadel players are hot dogging. Just rubbing our faces in it.

Citadel’s D is working us right now. Need to throw the ball a little more, if we can have protection. Not getting to the edge yet. Keep pounding and let the D do its thing!

Unfortunately the D can't do it's thing. We haven't really been able to stop the run all year in the way we had expected. In many ways The Citadel has been as inept as Wofford. Their play calling is going away from what has us reeling.

Agreed. While our stats may say otherwise, our D isn’t near as dominant. I mean we can’t get Citadel off the field.

We have problems with getting penetration this year on DL.

No need to panic about our run defense yet. Hoping for some regression to the mean in the second half

I would say we can't play worse than this half, but not so sure. We have been totally dominated if the way it looks is any indication. The Citadel even put their senior QB on the bench for a lot of the half for whatever reason. This is not any fun for the Wofford fans.
I think many of us thought we would have both O and D lines which dominated this year, and unfortunately that has not been the case. Our D line is being gashed, and our O line can't win. Our secondary is saving the defense, and now we are having to pass to be competitive. It's just not what was expected. Maybe we can adapt, but nothing indicates that is happening. Let's face it, this is the weakest Citadel team in years, and they are beating our butts.

Very true, no penetration by DL. One of our best DL's looks hurt to me.

We get the ball first in the 2nd half. Get some points and we are fine. Another nail biter it looks like. Our kind of game. We just can not let them continue controlling the game clock like they are. I could be mistaken but it has been like this against this team for the last three years.

Got our tails kicked in the first half and down a score. Settle down. We get the ball back at the half. Let’s score and make this a ball game. Please, adjust to the Toss sweep.

Line getting whipped on both sides. Let’s get that in order 2nd half. We don’t panic. Back to Wofford football. And let’s grind out this win.

Possessions are vital. Can't afford three and outs.
