    Thoughts on the rest of the season

    There are privacy issues. You can’t just say Player A did this or that. Now you can mention if a player got suspended and you don’t have to talk about the details. This all unfortunate but had little to do with them losing by 23.

    I don’t think a college football coach is ever going to expound on off the field issues.

    Thoughts on the rest of the season

    I appreciate it and those who have been through the ups and downs of this program. You see the potential that this place could become much bigger some day with a more competitive program. I thought we had probably close to 5,000 students between the stands and the parking lots (some say more). There are so many more kids on campus and over 10,000 with a mile radius. No reason not to fill the student section in the future. Now, we have to get the alums back on board and the rest will follow (hopefully).

    Thoughts on the rest of the season

    I know everyone wants the coach gone and there’s basically no chance of making the playoffs. There’s nothing wrong with pulling for the team as a fan because wins will be tough to come by the rest of the way. I’m still going to cover this team while pointing out the bad and the occasional good.

    It’s not necessary but go ahead.

    Football falls to UNH 37-14

    From what I heard, 48 hours before as Rob said and also something happened last week in Morgantown. So yes, it's bad enough to lose games and then lose players not necessarily due to injuries.
  8. We all know where this is headed, but unless there are more disciplinary actions (could be I guess), then play the best players on the field. Or at least shake things up. We've seen the same starting 11 on defense all four games save for Jamal Gay starting at OLB/Bandit. He was rotating with Daniel Raymond. Same starting corners until Shafeek Smith was pulled when he allowed a TD and couldn't make the tackle over the middle. So. Illinois transfer Dorian Davis played the rest of the way. You just can't have an O-line that is a work-in-progress going into the fifth game of the season. There wasn't much they could do with four starters leaving, but should not have added a left tackle transfer that is now on the right side and is probably not going to get on the field this season. You can't whiff on one of the most important positions on offense. Not saying that Dan Volpe is bad. He's going to be a really good one (hopefully for TU), but in a huge season, you don't want to start a true freshman LT. Piggy was not good yesterday, but for the life of me, I can't understand why we don't use RPO with him more. We did some against Morgan State two weeks ago and that was it. We've run RPO more with 6-4 Scott Smith than we have with 5-10 Piggy. At least that's what appears and all I remember in camp was that Smith was the gunslinger in the spring and summer. Why are we trying to run that type of offense with him? He's not Ryan Stover and while he can run some, if he's not a pocket passer, the backup should be Zach Jackson or Nathan Kent, who are dual-threat QBs. Hunter gives it his all and Matthews appears to be banged up. But no Sabias Folley and no Curtis Murray yesterday. Not saying they are stars, but mind-boggling. You can say the first four games have been beyond confusing to me. If you are going to go out, try and do some different things. Now what didn't make sense is that we have DK James, Isaiah Perkins, Darian Street and others who couldn't seem to get open yesterday in the first half. They did in the second half as maybe they were playing softer with a big lead or we just started takings shots downfield and James was blowing by everyone. Unfortunately, Piggy was overthrowing guys a lot and didn't show a lot of touch. Not saying anybody on the bench is better, but when you're down 3 TDs, there's no reason why you don't get another QB in there. I hate to see a staff give up but when we scored to make it 31-13 or whatever it was and then kicked the XP late in the third quarter, why do you not go for 2 there? You make it 31-15, then 31-23 and then try and tie it. Were we not going to score three straight TDs with three straight two-point conversions and hold them to nothing? Of course not, but at least you have to make an effort to show the team we're still trying. I assume there are only going to be maybe a few changes here and there the rest of the way or at least until the bye. It's not going to be enough to compete against Delaware and Elon on the road. That's a shame because while some people just want to see us get blown out every game, I think there was enough talent to be competitive. But apparently, it's not just talent that gets you places.

    Yeah, thought that was strange. Hunter struggled yesterday and you’re asking a lot for a guy that small to break a long one when he’s been on the field about 70% of the time as a running back. Probably Rob’s call though Lyndon might have suggested it

    This is not the President’s choice. It’s the AD that she hired. Now there might be more people (alums) that want her out more than RA due to some of her latest actions.

    Not what you think.There are rules and if you break them, there are consequences.

    The OL was not bad last season or in 2018 and 2019. A good or bad QB can define you. This line has four new starters with a true freshman left tackle and it shows.
