General thoughts after the victory over Wofford.
âI was a little proud of the way these guys, you know, we had a crazy week because they had time off on Tuesday because of the NCAA rule that we had to follow. We had to do some things differently. Sunday and Monday. And I thought We had a pretty decent practice on Wednesday. Thursday wasn’t bad. You know? We’re missing two starters today. Reggie [Henderson] did not make the trip. Harrison [Moon] did not make the trip. But just proud of the way these guys behaved. Because it is, it is difficult to go on the road. And I don’t care about anyone’s record, I mean it’s [hard]. We went there and did the things we needed to do today. “
At slow start and faster at the end.
âIt was a slow start, in a weird way. I mean, that’s the thing, we had way too many 15 yard penalties. We have to stop doing that. We just went over there and The offense did what they did. were supposed to do. They went out there and played like we were able to play. It wasn’t pretty, but I don’t think we returned the ball in attack. And I know that if we did, we would give him an opportunity, whatever it looked like here. “

They kind of fit in and no matter what that may be, the most important thing is we just stopped looking at the results and we’re just going outside and play. “
Ground attack is leading the way today.
âThe running game has started. What I like about our offensive line and our group of running backs, as the game progresses you start to see them lose eight yards per run, ten yards per run. . Once we get the lead, these guys hold the lead pretty well. It’s no fun getting hit in the mouth every play. “
