Watched some film of Syracuse @ Maryland

And we are going to run. All. Over. Them.

Maryland ran for 354 and it's REAL easy to see why. The Orange can't tackle. They simply can't tackle. So this will be another game where people say "why is Trevor Lawrence is struggling" after we win by 35 points and Etienne has rushed for another 200. Trevor may not get to 200 yards passing because he won't need to.

I need to study more of that game but there was two take-away I saw from from my first distracted background viewing.

1. MD had a few big plays where the backs were not touched (or barely) running through holes the size of the ignorance in Columbia. You had missed assignments, etc. It wasn't bad tackling, it was a lot more serious than that.
2. A lot of those missed tackles were missed from bad angles and bad positioning... again, #1
3. Tackling tends to be worse early in the season - just basics of how practice is done nowadays. Still, this D was not prepared.
4. 2012 Orange Bowl. Uggg, the Cuse turned the ball over to a hot offense that makes the rout worse. You can't give a hot Off the ball with 20-30 yards to go. That is when it when from a 7pt game to a 21 point game. That is just how a game get out of hand....

Not a few big plays: a few of the many big plays lack any contact. The benedict twerps were not *touched*! That isn't bad tackling.... they did not even have a Cuse defender in the vicinity.

I have not seen the game. Are the 'Cuse defenders slow, or were they simply badly poisitioned?
