#101970 [FB] Game 5 - @ Elon - 9/30 - 2PM

He actually didn't have much time at all.  Their D-line abused our O-Line.  Badly.  They play an odd, yet athletic, 3-3-5.  Their big NG Cox abused our interior line all day long.  I counted at least 11 hurries on top of the sacks.

Brunson did not have a great game.  However, when they put him in position to do well early on, he was fine.  He was 5-9 in the first half.  Why only 9 attempts?  Why make him throw deep outs...that's not his game.

 

More importantly, I think something is wrong with Brunson...physically.  I know that he had elbow or shoulder problems in the past (I can't remember...I think it was the elbow).  Today, as the game progressed...he had ZERO zip on the ball...even the short passes.  Last week he was tossing some ropes.  On almost every INT or near INT today...the ball was thrown soft or floated.  He had nothing on the ball.

 

At the end, he was clearly grabbing the right arm (elbow area) and that's why Sussman came out.

 

I think he's got an injury...

I went with Hatalsky.  For me, it was also a tough choice because I think that Mofor and Brunson have both been a huge difference for us.  We don't win games without them.  But Hatalsky has gone from obscurity--from a fan perspective--to filling quite possibly the biggest shoes needed (Nicastro) on the field and in a leadership capacity.  The kid is a straight up old-school football player.

LOL...wish it were so simple.  A DR site in the IT world (my company builds these to connect our clients with our two data centers) isn't exactly cheap depending on the connection being used (MPLS is super expensive).

 

My guess is that once the PE gym gets renovated, they either add fiber conduits for exactly what you are talking about...or they will light up dark fiber and add switches in a comms box somewhere between the two facilities.  My guess is that they don't have fiber running under the PE Building.

From the SBU board: "t got home and it was empty tonight  why I don't know. CAA game , great weather and  I guess we had 5k  maybe .   Anyway tough win but a win non the less . Towson played well and had a  few chances to pull ahead."

 

Their box said 6672.  That was an out-in-out lie...I watched part of that game and they barely filled the lower level of the home side.  If they had 3-4k fans it would have been a lot.  We still have work to do...a lot...but I still think UA is a sleeping mid-level giant that could average 10k a game. However, attendance for football still seems to be down, generally speaking, in the Mid-Atlantic/Northeas

Yep, to concur Eli, I have been in contact with the Athletic Department staff since the ODU game.  It's refreshing (but crappy) to hear that the problem is still with ESPN and not UA.  I've been switching between Chrome and IE to get the games to work.

 

But our staff has been VERY attentive to e-mails, and responds very quickly.  I have to give kudos to our department for responding to e-mails in such a fashion.  

And to confirm, I just checked the Great Dane gameday feed...and they did do exactly what you mention, Eli.  I will definitely check those feeds next time (if it occurs again)...and again, it's a great pro-active move from our ADept.

 

However, I think I speak for most...thank you and others for the updates.  It's almost better to get it from fans.   :)

 

Gotta say that I think the Athletic Department has TOTALLY grown to be a very solid DI department.  If we get them the money through donations...they seem to know how to spend it properly.  (Title IX issue aside...which we aren't the first or last school to struggle with that rule).

WOW WOW WOW!!!! DE-EFFING-FENSE!!!!
 
ESPN followed the RB but I think the QB kept it but 3 UA defenders read it, stripped it and ran it back!
 
What a HUGE win!!!!!  Just HUGE!!!


Correct. Malachi stayed home...stripped the qb

Great teams pull this out. What a game by Hoskins. Mofor didn't rush for a lot but he's got some big guts coming back and kept nova honest.

Brunson was 24-36 and 221. He's now 41-61 and 419 the last two games. He's growing up

Hold on boys.  We should be up at least 20-3.  It's been a good game.  D is worked out.  Mofor is back.  Brunson playing well.  

 

And...Gattuso finally not willing to take anymore of Bernard's bull$iena play calls from Pop Warner.  

 

I'm ok with this day so far.

I've never said this before. If we lose this game...Bernard needs to be relieved of his duties, effective immediately.
