At this point we are tremendously overrated. Getting our butts kicked by Mercer; Furman gets beat by the worst team in the CAA. Maybe we are a very mediocre team who thinks it can play without doing much. Our zone defense is pitiful. That may work against some high school teams, but it is being picked apart by the first two SoCon teams we have played.

offensive playcalling is losing us this game.

Was Newman running the offense too well?

Don't recall him running the ball himself while he was in. Took him out on third and long for Goodson to pitch the ball. Our defense is getting routed.

When Newman was running the offense we weren't successful because of that fact, but because we had decent playcalling.

we've had multiple possessions with no FB carries. I know that we joke that we run that play too much, but it was actually working.

If we lose this game, it's on coaching. They're trying (again) to be too fancy. Defense is playing okay. It could be better, obviously but this is on offensive play-calling. This is a problem we've had for years.

I think the league pays ESPN a lot to televise all league games. Not sure we are getting much for the bucks.

I don't blame the players for this one. They're trying. Offensive playcalling and bad kick return coverage is the difference in this one.

when we run the ball primarily, we score.

130 or so yards of offense. 10 yards passing. defense is being outplayed too.

still waiting for last years defense to arrive. We have not put any pressure on QB's on 2 weeks. We have always played off of receivers, so that is a norm for us, but we have been able to get pressure and apply pressure. So far in 2 games our defense has played on its heels.
