How’s it feel Jacket fans? We’re 10-1 and locked into the championship game in Tampa as the Coastal Division Champion!
I’m watching Miami flounder around against North Carolina and wondering what could have been, if we hadn’t played them as our third game in twelve days earlier in the season. I’d love to get a rematch right now…I think we’d steamroll them.
Looking back at today’s game…
519 total yards of offense and 49 points despite playing the second string for pretty much the entire fourth quarter.
Dwyer goes over 100 yards again and adds a pair of TDs.
Nesbitt goes 6 / 10 for 195 yards and a pair of TDs.
Orwin Smith’s big kick off return to swing momentum.
Ben Anderson’s huge game with five solo tackles and a pair of impressive sacks.
The defense held Duke to less than 300 yards of total offense and a measly 10 points.
Once again, we came out flat on the road and stumbled to a 10-0 deficit before we woke up.
Lack of communication on the fake / muffed punt that resulted in field position that gave Duke a field goal early.
Tackling has to get better. Too many Duke ball carriers shrugged off GT tacklers and got extra yards.
Kick Off coverage stinks…if we can’t do better we’ll end up watching Boykin (UGA) or Spiller (Clemson) run one back for six points in the next couples of games. And those are teams we cannot afford to give easy points to. We MUST kick and cover better.
Offense – Dwyer for sparking the offense
Defense – Ben Anderson for his active play in the middle and his two sacks
