Three quick takes
1) All three phases stood up, the defense in particular. Consider this performance in the first half — Morehead State had nine possessions. Six were three-and-out. Of the other three, the defense forced a turnover, forced a field goal after the Eagles got the ball on the GSU 23 and the last ended the half.
2) Drew Little keeps getting better. He’s good at what he does, which is execute the offense, throw accurate passes and make good decisions. He was 21 for 29 for 287 yards, four touchdowns, no interceptions, and I think at least a couple were throwaways.
He’s got a very capable target in Danny Williams. Good hands, fights for yards after the catch. Eight catches, 101 yards.
3) Panthers did what they had to do. Morehead State is not at the level of Georgia State, and the Panthers’ play reflected that, unlike games against Lambuth and Campbell. I guess maybe we shouldn’t be doing backflips because of that – they did what they were supposed to, essentially – but it’s a step in the right direction and a sign of growth as a team.
The game was never really in doubt, which is not something you could say in the Lambuth and Campbell games.
The next step is putting two good weeks of practice and play together.
