Spring Game
Feel pretty good about the offense after watching that. We might even let Terry Wilson throw this year! How crazy is that. Terry Wilson's receivers only had one drop the entire game Running backs look as good as expected. If the offensive line holds up we should be really good.

Still a little concerned about D line and corners. The rookie cornerback play was ...

re: Spring Game
I missed the game unfortunately, happy to hear that Terry looks better. If he isn't better, we're in trouble this year.
And this

is fantastic news.
Defense will no doubt take a step back, but hopefully, they aren't the equivalent of a wet paper bag on the field when facing a mac offense
I am cautiously optimistic for this season. I don't expect us to win 10 games again, but I do think we can make a bowl and be competitive in every game.

re: Spring Game
There was a sophomore WR named Oliver (6'1" from Florida) who was just killing them all game. He saved Gunnar Hoak from two interceptions fighting for the ball. He literally stole one from a DB and made him look foolish. Ended with 8 receptions for 104 yards and a TD. Not bad for a backup.

The only drop for Terry was a tight end in the end zone. He hit him on time with a perfectly placed throw.

Overall Terry was much better. He could still be quicker on his reads but he was decisive and more important accurate. He nailed 2 deep balls, one to Bowden and one to Epps.

Gunnar Hoak couldn't hit the broad side of a barn the first half but he settled in during the second half and became more accurate. Still not a lot of speed on his balls... Well until he does. It's weird. It's like when he's certain he slings it.

Running backs Rose was good although I still question his power. Smoke came out of today looking like the best back showing great patience, power and speed. He even had a couple receptions out of the backfield.

I have the game recorded on YouTubeTV. Sadly there's no way to share it

re: Spring Game
Thanks for the link
Terry's ability to throw deep looks like its improved significantly, and Oliver looks like a beast based on the highlight reel.
Our offense might actually be something this year.

re: Spring Game
I'm trying not to read too much into it. Stoops was very unhappy with the defensive effort and intensity but I like that we may throw more than 12 passes a game

re: Spring Game
Smoke is going to be a great RB for us. Wilson looked light years better from where he was in the spring game last year.

Now I see why season ticket prices keep going up. We gotta feed this kid.
