The good news is that we are 2-1 on the season with wins over Albany and Georgia Tech. As we do on here we’ll list the Good, the Bad and the Ugly then you guys can chip in with your thoughts.
However, I’m two-blocked with other obligations so my thoughts today will be short.
We held GT to 320 yards rushing. I had written earlier that if we could hold their offense to under 300 yards on the ground we’d win. Pretty close on that – although I had GT winning this game which was a bad prediction.
Pickett passed better than before with 16 0f 23 for 197 yards and 1 INT. On the season so far he’s done this:
I thought he’d have better stats at this point but he’s not losing ball games which for a young QB is the key. He’s got to be better on his deep throws though.
The 2nd half stagnation. We have to do something about the fact that in each of our three games so far we have been almost shutout in those six quarters of play with only a FG in this last game. This isn’t good and this time it could easily have led to a loss. We played so well in the first half so something’s going on there.
Even though it was a plus for us I thought GT’s HC Paul Johnson’s playcalling was horrible. GT was off all day – helped in that by our defense in the 1st half of course – but I felt that the GT team we just played was not a very good one.
