1.) Pretty good crowd - the ticket promotion got people into the stands
2.) Thomas reads early with the option were not good. He also seemed to have glue on his hands. There was a big improvement in the second half.
3.) If one play can cost Roof succeeding PJ, that 92 yard run is the one. How can you leave the middle open when all Wofford wants is a small gain and run clock?
4.) The key was the big return by Golden that set up the FG. If that doesn't happen, there would been loud booing at the half.
5.) Other than a stretch of 3 incompletes, JT threw the ball well. He made excellent reads.
6.) The 2 players that stood out to me on defense were Rook-Chuanong(sp) and Milton.
7.) The defense played tentatively after the long run. There was a lot of attacking in the first half. In the second half, nobody reacted well.
8.) The offensive line was fine on pass blocking but underachieved. The area where we have talent failed to impose its will.
9.) Smelter will get a look in the NFL especially if runs a good 40.
10.) The storm clouds at the end of the game may be a precursor for this season. The talent level has slipped. The first game can be apoor indicator. However, it is not like we were looking ahead to Tulane or we dominated but had a lot of turnovers. We didn't look that good and Wooford is not North Dakota State.,
All in all I was OK with the offense,especially Justin's passing game. Defense, not so much. Considering the competition I would rate us a B- ,but we will have trouble against the big boys. If we go 7-5 it's time to cut Johnson!!
