Me too. That's the key.

yep. Never mind our typically predictable playcalling. I think we have a mountain to climb next season.

I always saw him as a backup high end. But Childers was 3rd string so I hated the fact that Carey went with Childers over Santa. A shame to lose a good kid and maybe our season would have ended up better with our 2nd string vs our third string.

Let us compare CFU to Auburn last weekend. Size, speed were not in their favor. Solid QB play was very much the reason they won. So, I believe our OOC schedule is winnable if we have solid QB play and receivers who can run solid routes and get separation.

The question for next year is will we have an improved QB leading the team?

Our O-line needs to establish themselves in the trenches and improve their run blocking. They pass block well but are below average establishing the line of scrimmage in the run game. Harbison is the perfect back for this type of running next year. We could not pound the ball at all this year. Our QB taking the next step and an improved run game will be the difference next year. Our defense will be legit again.
