#102292 [FB] Game 6 - @ Richmond - 10/7 - 3PM

Posted by jimbo on 09 October 2017 - 06:27 AM

Our D got a little pressure on him but missed like 5 opportunities for sacks. You can't do that and let him make plays, and still expect to win.
 
I thought Brunson did a fine job, even if some throws were a bit high. Someone said he was off all game...I disagree with that. He made a few mistakes, which is expected considering he still technically hasn't played a full year of CAA football (this is what, his 8th game?). Dude is definitely growing and making strides. Diggs bailed him out a few times, but that's fine...this is a team sport. The other half of the team (defense) failed him and let up a TON of big plays and gave up a ton of points.


Newspaper articles quoted at least one player who said those deep jump balls were planned. They had no defense for it. I do take issue with UA playing it safe all of a sudden when UR kicked the FG to pull within 7. That was some lousy play calling. Why not take another deep ball shot?

That's too complicated.

This is just a rumor and I may be completely wrong (heard people talking about it at the football game) but he may have gotten into trouble with the law, which would not be good.


He was on the sideline at the Villanova game, which would seem odd if there were legal issues brewing. I've never gone through it, but I've read/heard that it can take up to a year for a player to regain confidence in the ability of a surgically repaired knee to perform at a prior level without re injury. It's not so much of a physical issue as a mental one.

Ok, was exciting. Brunson is growing up...I feel good about QB for the first time since Fiacchi's Sr year. Defense is for real and Bernard Clark has done a masterful job. The weak link in this chain is named Bernard. He's either got to go or they need to stop him from calling plays. May be a nice guy, may be friends with GG, but come on.....

Ok, I was trying to be kind. For anyone not there last night, the conditions were perfect for kicking and passing. Not a breath of wind all night. In fact, the smoke from the team entrance damn near choked out the upper deck before dispersing. So...absolutely no excuse for the wretched punts and missed place kicks. WB overthrew a lot of times on deep routes, but was close. Why they ran Sussman three times in a row to end a drive is beyond my understanding of football. Sounds like somebody has to hit the ATM for a twenty on the way to the game.

OneDane, I understand the issue with cost, but I've been going to games since 1970 and they all used to be free for a long time. Climbing from club to D1 scholarship is a huge upgrade in product and Casey is vastly superior to the old venue. Costs will continue to climb and prices will follow suit. I don't think the product is overpriced.

There were some serious hits tonight. Donovan McDonald is a beast on punt returns. Hatalsky is everywhere. EB is back. Monmouth had one break away run on a 4th and short, otherwise completely shut down running game. Need to clean up some penalties and kicking game did not impress. Lots of overthrown deep balls. Diggs is the real deal. Otherwise, a fun night.

It's because of your GDAC donation (the $50 for each seat) that you receive the parking.

 

If anyone ever needs extra's, please let me know (I have two seats). I only get to 1-2 games per year due to work and distance.  I also sit in the Upper Deck for the same reasons as GDG.  

 

Dane96 sits right by me, Click and Jimbo (and maybe others). I feel like we have the best seats in the house. Right on the 50 yard line nice and high. See everything. I've sat in the lower level for the spring games and I can't see crap on running plays.

I promise to behave. lol.

 

 

I agree with Eli....we sit right behind him. Great view of the field. We got parking in SEFCU again, which is really sweet...and that was with a $100 GDAC donation, plus the GDAC tent wrist bands. This level of football requires more money and if you only have 5 or 6 games to get it, the prices will be higher. If you look what it costs at the next level, even at places like Army and Syracuse, it puts it into perspective. Since there's just the two of us it's not a burden, but I could see where it would be prohibitive if there was a brood to bring along. There should be some sort of youth pricing to try and build up the fan base for future years. And please Eli....don't behave...what fun would that be??

In other news, D3 to be exact, St Johns beat St Scholastica 98-0. Scoreboard guy was probably breaking a sweat.

I died at Gattusso saying he's blessed with two GREAT (placed an emphasis on GREAT) quarterbacks. LOL...who would they be? These two stunk last year. Couldn't make a pass to save their life, nothing over the middle or deep etc. 
 
In fact the quarterback position is a solid D- at UA unless some quantum leap has been achieved from last year to this yea.


Maybe GG has been watching too much Trump coverage. Passing game will be HUGE, best ever. QBs are GREAT and you'll be amazed at the HUGE improvement.

All seriousness aside, I'm getting pumped! Harris will be back, got a likely stud TE, got some size and skill for interior D line. QBs
Will have to step up.

I worked at the Harriman Campus for a number of years and Eli's idea seems very sensible. So they probably won't do it. The campus can be confusing at first for some people, but it's really simple to navigate.
