A word of caution after the spring game

Just want to point out that becoming too optimistic about the defense or pessimistic about the offense based on the spring game may be off base. The defense had spent the entire spring working against the "new plays." There were several times they recognized the play and jumped the route, because they had seen that play many times that spring. The offense had multiple players out for injuries that will hopefully raise the level of play this fall and the playbook will be opened up.

Hopefully the defense will do a lot of film study and the coaches will have them prepared for the "favorite" plays of the opponent each week. That is when we will see how good they really are. Likewise hopefully the offense will be healthy and well rehearsed with the plays. I think I heard they want to be so good at running the plays it works even if the defense knows what is coming. Sounds likes what somebody named Vince Lombardi used to preach.

It should be an interesting season and I will be glued to the TV. Will record and rewatch them all to try and see how it is all working out.

and has been for years, exacerbated this year by a rash of injuries. Like you, I wouldn't put too much stock into it.

I really wish they would allow a spring game scrimmage against another school, even if it was a Furman/Wofford/etc.

offense looked nothing like what he had seen in practice.

I suspect we saw a very vanilla offense without much variation or window dressing.

Absolutely nothing about the team in the Spring game. You can easily see the individual skills that the players have but you don’t see anything close to a TEAM on the field. No one should challenge the abilities of our coaching staff.They certainly will have this team ready to go before the trip to Durham to begin this championship season. My only concern is with the health of some of the front line players. August is going to be a big time moment for Tiger
Football. I’m thankful for Dabo and Company. They will not let you down. .
