See, for me it's not the specific plays that bothers me, it's the plays in a given context.

For instance, that halfback pass was great and unexpected. It would have worked in the first half as opposed to that stupid double reverse flea flicker screen

I'm not "antipassing" but I think the pass should be treated as a safety valve that we can use when we need it (which we have!) on long situations or on third down. But first down and second down, in my opinion is where the run feasts.

That's not to say that it's never a smart idea to pass on first and second down, but I see a consistent trend that we knock ourselves off schedule when we're moving the ball decently by passing at bad times. We are an option team and our play-calling should reflect that in my opinion. I'd love to see us you wideouts for things other than passing (though, they are knocking it out catching the ball obviously), reverses, wide receiver options, etc

We can do it, we've done it before. If we integrate it into a normal part of our offense we can do so much more and so much better.

Yes we did. Glad to see our guys keep their chins in there and pull out a nice win. We play, and hopefully win, them one game at a time ... together.

The western game quickly becomes the game of the year. Win that one, and the conference is in clear control.

I will eat crow and say great showing by the Terrier D. Yes, it's Presby, but let's feed off of this and take it to Western!

4-0, and ranked # 7 in FCS--hmmm- maybe deserved, maybe not--only things that matter is the end of the season--are we getting better? Or, getting worse?- I think we are getting better--We will see- like the game coming up to put a statement up-

I'd say right now we're still a bubble team. Win the next one (or better yet, the next two) and I'd say we're a playoff lock.

No reason we should lose to VMI or chatt, so that puts at 6 games. A win against Samford, Western or the Citadel should be good enough to put us over. I think we *should* beat ETSU, but ETSU is a lot better than they were last year

From Shanesy.......this makes sense to me. I now understand why the offense seemed disjointed

“Wofford offensive coordinator Wade Lang was gone all week because his father passed away. Rest of offensive staff put together game plan and Lang, who rejoined team this morning, said he only called a few plays -- not the 94-yard TD run on first snap or halfback pass for TD.”

RIP to Coach Lang’s father. Our condolences and many blessings sent your way to your family in this time of mourning. I hope for peace and comfort for you and the family.

After learning of Mr Lang’s passing I have changed my view of
This game. I was frustrated by our disjointed look on offense and now I understand why. Our team and Wofford fam hurt for our coach and his family. No more frustration from me about this game. A win is a win and we are still undefeated and as I look across the FCS landscape many have fallen and wished to be in our spot. Great job by the defense only giving up 7 points.

This leaves a fantastic opportunity on the table at home against a red hot Western Carolina team that is lighting up teams. Big time showdown in Spartanburg. Would be a great game
To really pack the house and make it a true HOME ADVANTAGE.

Blake Morgan and Lennox need the ball in their hands as much as possible. 2 extremely explosive players.

Some have mellowed-not me. A team with a good QB and receivers who can catch the ball could shred us.
