  1. Not speaking to this one. Let’s just say, I’d be ecstatic if we picked up a verbal this weekend. And yes, I’m being a bit of a tease.
  2. Someone else, special, is currently on campus. Would be excellent to lock him up
  3. Agree on all, Jimbo. The way I look at this, this was a 21-21 game after the 17-0 debacle. They had their starters in until the last series. Their QB was a former starter for Tennessee and the 11th ranked QB in the nation in 2014, choosing Tennessee over 'Bama (their top choice QB at the time). So it made sense he was making the throws he did in what was pretty solid coverage. I don't care that Cuff played four (three full) games last year; he needs reps and he is 19. He missed at least 3 throws that he makes later in the year as the game slows down for him. He has a very strong arm, and made some solid (and some misses) reads. I will take that for what is essentially a first year, teenage QB. He has the skill set and I think we will be very happy as he gets more reps. He also had one ball (the drop that was a fumble/incomplete) that should have been caught. So in the end, you would be talking about 16-28 for 214 or so yards, 2 TDs and 0 TO's. His missed passes were not into coverage and were overthrows--that's nerves. I am very happy with that performance. As you noted, the O-Line needs to work on run blocking and, particularly, Sean Kennedy and Murad Hussein missed a multitude of assignments. Kobe Thomas, for a R-FR, showed some serious glimpses and had some moxy. It helps that he can play multiple positions on the line. For the first time in a long time, I felt encouraged. I think Coach lost his cool a couple of times however, his post-game interview was pretty fantastic and I think was spot on in evaluation. What I hope for is that we keep progressing. What scares me is that I saw Griffin and Mencer go out with injuries (Griffin early, with a leg issue and Mencer, late in the game with an arm issue). Those are two players we can ill-afford to lose.
  4. Even better, we've had good pressure all game. All game. That was lacking last year.
  5. Well, the defense looks excited now that there counterparts put a darn drive together.
  6. So, Undercuffler is now 5-9 for 86 and a TD. Ok, I will take that for a frosh.
  7. That was a set of balls by Undercuffler on the check down. Mofor is not as fast as Hanks was pre-injury. No sir. Nice TD.
  8. This. I don’t know why we play this defense year in and out. Our lbs are not that quick
  9. So, Undercuffler definitely has an arm. He also has the hardcount working. Hopefully the rest comes into play through the year. Mofor with a HUGE run.
  10. The ball hit the hands of the receiver. So yeah, 8 inches here’s what sucks right now (shocker). Offensive line is garbage in the run game. Completely losing any sort of push.
  11. That is one of hardest throws in football. It was a 20+ yard out to the sideline. He missed him by 8 inches. Give the kid a break. Tyler carswell having a monster game.
  12. That was a stupid penalty. So dumb. The defense is playing.well
  13. Sigh. I am not a benson fan but y’all need to quit griping. This happens on every d1 campus I’ve been on. I used to be a season ticket holder at bc. My friends father used to pay our “fee” so we could have a Shea field pass to tailgate with. One year we didn’t get it. Mind you, this guy was a major executive for cbs sports. He played at Stanford. The Stanford-bc football series was due to him. And his daughter was the captain of bc volleyball. So we asked his dad, what’s up with the pass...why are we in the terrible parking garage. Answer: apparently the 10,000 dollar donation from the previous season was not enough to get us the pass. He was never told the donation amount required (not was anyone told) and it was a straight gamble. Same thing happened to friends at UConn when they were in FCS. It sucks, and it is standard. It’s a way to drive people to donate more if they really care about the lot closest to the stadium.
  14. https://twitter.com/The_Stingers/status/1164327017325764609/photo/1 First half box
  15. Albany up 12 at half, 38-26. Concordia has beaten the Q by 8, lost to Valpo by 4.
  16. Albany up 6 at end of 1st Qtr. 22-16.
  17. So, Romani Hansen has averaged almost a double-double this trip. To be more precise, 11.25ppg and 9.5 per game in about 23 minutes a game. I don't care if it is pre-season, the kid has come to ball. I think he brings a TOTALLY different dimension that we've had in years past. If we get ANYTHING like this out of him all year, we are doing very well. Due to his size and athleticism, Coach can run out all different kinds of lineups (big and small).
  18. It’s just you. He was never going to see the field. It happens more often then you think in football
