Coach Houston talked about your QB being a really dynamic dual threat guy. He said you are really physical on both the OL & DL. But that's about it.

For ECU... a really short & sweet rundown...

I'll start with this... UCF was really good.

Our biggest weaknesses:

OL is pretty darn bad. We rotate a lot of guys, but we are a long way off from being competitive in the AAC with this kind of OL.

DL is unbelievably young. Most of the kids who got reps against UCF played their first college football last week. We have lots of bodies to rotate, but they have virtually no experience. Growing pains.

Our biggest strengths:
Holton Ahlers. Kid is a warrior at QB and has to do it all. Most times he's running for his life.

Our WR's are the strength of our team. CJ Johnson is awesome, and is only a sophomore. They didn't have a great week against UCF, but we hope and expect them to perform like they did in the 2nd half of the 2019 season.

Surprisingly, our defensive secondary is as good as it has been in a long time. The PROBLEM is, our front 7 got virtually no pressure on the UCF QB and they had to cover for 8-10 seconds. But for the first time in a lonnnng time, we have DB's that can make plays.

Deep at RB with a couple of exciting young guys.

Thanks for the rundown on ECU. Enjoyed your take on the team. These are my preliminary thoughts based on few things you have said + what I already know about GSU.

The match up that favors GSU
1) Our experienced veteran OL is the glue that holds our offense together. Based on what you said about young ECU DL, I like GSU's match up there to create holes for our running game and keep our young QB protected.
2) Our DLs are small but quick. I'm excited for the matchup against ECU's OL. They play physically above their weight and undoubtedly the strength of our defense.

The match up that favors ECU
1) Our secondary has never been our strength. ECU seems to have great QB and WRs to carve up our zone defense. I predict GSU's DBs will give up tons of passing yardages.
2) Our passing game vs ECU's secondary. The freshman QB can and will make freshman-like mistakes.

Pinnacle now has ECU as 1.5 pt favorites so those believing GSU wins this one go get in on some action.

UCF was really, really good.

This game could go either way but I do like our chances. ECU's D isn't as bad as it looked on Saturday. GT gave up more total yards to UCF (661) than we did (632) and GT gave up much less yards in their other 2 games vs FSU (307) and Syracuse (357).

Yeah but FSU and Syracuse are pretty bad.

But it's still too early to make judgements.

Hey ECU fans, has grad transfer and former Mountaineer, Chris Willis, been cleared to play? I did not see him in the box score against UCF.

He should play this week. We need him, for sure. He's been repeatedly praised by the coaching staff as being very solid, and exactly what you want out of an older, experienced guy. Considering our DL is extremely young, his presence should help.

GSU favored by 2 points at home. Should be a good game.

Ad far as we know, Panthers are at full strength without missing any player from covid related issues. Another good news is that the all-sec defensive back transfer Jamyest Williams was just cleared by the NCAA for an immediate eligibility. Should appear in the starting lineup soon. Jamyest is also an absolute playmaker as a kick returnef and has the ability to take it to the house at any time. Remains to be seen if he will appear as early as the ECU game. Could be a welcomed surprise however.

ECU should be absolutely hungry for a win after suffering a lopsided loss to UCF last weekend. I expect them to be 100% ready and not overlook us in their preparations this week.

A point of interest. After being cleared of covid related issue, QB Mikele Colasurdo rose to the #2 QB spot on the depth chart over the Vandy transfer QB who battled Quad Brown very closely for the starting QB spot during the camp. The talk is that Colasurdo is a gunslinger with accuracy and awareness in the pocket, as well as being a great student of the game. Quad is the starter QB with the better athleticism with 4.33 speed, a big arm to throw deep, and 6'5 frame that you cant teach. If Quad struggles however, wouldn't be surprised if Colasurdo gets a shot for few drives.
Actually it sounds like Vandy transfer asked for a position change since he is a freak athlete who was not going to start over Quad. And ...no way Quad runs a 4.33.

Here’s a reference for a qb with true 4.3 speed. Not starting anything as I haven’t seen quad play yet but if he looks like this on the fly than he’s legit 4.3
