Of course, as soon as posted my earlier comment they score two touchdowns in a quarter, and via the pass, no less.

IT LIVES!!

I wasn’t sure what I was watching in the second half. The defense was its usual solid self, but the offense? Where did that come from? Fourteen points in a quarter? Air Treadwell?

RE: Football thoughts
From what I've seen from this offense so far I honestly don't know what our offensive strategy is. Are all the QB runs designed or are they told to run of their first read isn't open? Are the QBs too antsy and pulling it down too quickly? At any rate, the second half proved that we need to be throwing the ball. Even if it's short passes we have some fast shifty receivers that can find extra yards with a little space. The constant QB sneaks has become so predictable that it's completely ineffective.

Also apparent at mid-season, the OL is no tower of power. All the more reason to 'move the pocket a bit' and pass.

As others have stated, the defense (against MAC level teams) is good enough to go to war. But this team/program needs an OC and an OL to be truly competitive.

And just an aside. ... Crum needs to keep playing along with Bollas. Nice to see Bollas coming around, but this is it for him. For Crum to be ready for next year, he still needs a few snaps a game now. Development, Development, Development.

Bollas has one more year left so if he plays like he did in the second half I'd prefer we switch to him full time. I'd love to go into a season feeling good about a QB for once. It's entirely possible neither guy starts next year though. Supposedly Mitchell was the #2 when he got hurt in camp. I thought he showed flashes of potential last year in the brief time before he got hurt. At any rate, I doubt the coaches are concerned with developing young players right now. I'm sure they're going to play the guys they think are best equipped to save their jobs.

My bad ... I stand corrected. ............. BTW is Mitchell done for the year for sure ... and just what was/is his injury.
