this, and hopefully some sunshine. I'll take clouds, and rain as long as it quits by noon...
I've learned to take NOTHING from the spring game. If anything, I'd like to see the 1 defense take it to the 1 offense. Rather than be worried about the offense, I'd think the defense has some potential... I know the offense will be fine come fall, but its the D that scares me.
All of this. I doubt we'll start tailgating until 11 AM or Noon anyway, so any rain beforehand is fine by me.
What I don't want to see is a repeat of 2006 where the offense just took it to the defense. Then took it to them some more. I want a game that was like 2005 where the the 1st stringers won (as they should) but the defense made them fight tooth and nail for every score.
That will be promising because the offense can start clicking in the summer with 7-on-7 drills. The defense needs a better showing now with the problem areas (line/linebacker) having fewer chances to work together in the summer.
Also, to those who thought Bates was the better QB after the spring game last year, you should have paid more attention to the passes.
Bates was doing underneath and quick passes. Arnaud had to throw the more complex, deep, timing based passes. Arnaud was being tested more than Bates and had a bad showing. Of course Bates was going to look better.
Honestly, I want to see what Tiller and Beuker can do. We know what Arnaud can.
Yea, I'm gonna go with this being the more likely of the two problems. You don't need to know a whole lot about football to know you gotta see what you're tackling. On the hand other you gotta need to take a class to point make in English.
I think we just have alot of people that cant read. I understood everything he said.
