RE: INside The Walls of Troy
Defense dominates Trojans scrimmage

TROY -- Saturday was supposed to be a showcase for the Troy offense, considering it was facing a defense that's looking for starters and shuffling its lineup.

Of course, offenses are rarely in a good rhythm in their first scrimmage.

The Trojan defense held the first- and second-team offenses out of the end zone, sending the offense back to the drawing board after a 90-minute workout at Veterans Memorial Stadium on Saturday.

Troy's 'drive for five' should result in seven

By Patrick Johnston, Extra Points
Published: August 09, 2010

Thanks in large part to Eufaulian Jerrel Jernigan, the Troy Trojans should once again contend for a Sun Belt championship.

Troy has established a nice niche in the world of non-BCS football. Yes, the Trojans struggled last year against SEC foes Florida and Arkansas (losing by a combined score of 112-26.) But they also went 9-2 against non-SEC teams. One of the losses was an overtime thriller against nationally-ranked Central Michigan in the GMAC Bowl.

Troy also went undefeated in conference play last season, and has won at least a share of the conference crown in the last four seasons. The team’s mantra for 2010 is “Drive for Five.”

Can Troy hold off the rest of the Sun Belt and earn another ring? Let’s see:

Troy lineman Underwood is preaching the Word

By Drew Champlin
Published: August 09, 2010

TROY — When the Troy football team had its picture day on Sunday, Aug. 1, one key member of the offensive line was missing.


But Demarkus Underwood had a good excuse.


The junior right tackle was preaching his first sermon. He asked offensive line coach John Schlarman for permission, and it was quickly granted.


“The Lord spoke to my heart and told me He wanted me to go preach the Word,” Underwood said. “I had to go do what He asked me to do.


“I had to keep praying, but when I talked to my offensive line coach, he said it was all right and he’d work it out with coach Blakeney.”

Troy hopes speed on defense triumphs inexperience

By Drew Champlin | dchamplin@dothaneagle.com
Published: August 10, 2010

TROY, Ala. -- Troy defensive end Jonathan Massaquoi took a different approach when asked about the Trojans’ young defense.

Massaquoi, a redshirt sophomore, is one of eight new starters on a team that has won four straight Sun Belt championships. He’s expected to be a big part of a unit where many outsiders feel is a weakness.

“Who doesn’t lose about seven or eight starters per year? We lost them, and that’s why we have backup players,” Massaquoi said. “They’re ready and equipped to fill those positions.”

Troy expects offense to remain potent

By Tim Gayle • August 11, 2010

TROY -- The Troy offense has piled up a lot of yards and points the last few seasons. That's one thing new offensive coordinator Kenny Edenfield doesn't plan to change.

Edenfield was handed the reins of the Troy offense when Neal Brown was hired by Tommy Tuberville at Texas Tech, but the former Troy receiver said it's doubtful any Trojan fan will notice the difference.

"I don't think they will," he said. "I think it will look very similar. Hopefully, it'll be as good as it's been in the past."

Some practice notes

By Drew Champlin

Came to practice today to get some interviews for stories.

***Head coach Larry Blakeney said they’d like to have a QB by two weeks before the first game, but not sure if that’ll happen. At 4:05 p.m., Corey Robinson is running with the first group and Jamie Hampton the second, but they’re just doing drills now, not 11-on-11 stuff.

TROY -- Troy held its second scrimmage on Saturday morning and while the offense was vastly improved over its Aug. 7 performance, head coach Larry Blakeney wasn't ready to settle on a starting quarterback.

"I'm not sure we've got a quarterback that's ready to make a stand yet," he said. "We've just got to keep sawing wood."

Offense comes to life during Troy scrimmage

By Drew Champlin
Published: August 14, 2010

TROYChip Reeves spent last Tuesday at the hospital getting treated for dehydration. He spent Saturday burning his Trojan teammates on defense.


Reeves, a junior wide receiver, had three catches for 88 yards, one a 43-yard touchdown pass from Corey Robinson and another a 44-yard reception on a deep pass from Robinson that set up another score.
