    Patenaude is a joke. That's my only thought really ...

    What we had here boys was just better athletes and high rated recruits going up against us. We just couldn't overcome the vastly superior talent.

    Good second half. Graham is a man. Need bodies in the trenches.

    Thwg. Lol

    The experts nailed it. Irrational fans not so much.

    Moral Victory....no we still lost by a lot. Again, to much passing. Mason and Howard could have made this a game. All the three and outs in the first half meant game over. It doesn't get any easier.

    Feeling better about offense, but we just don’t have the bodies up front on either side of the ball. There was a major difference in size and it was evident.

    Nothing has changed. It is a waiting game until we get players that can run this offense enrolled. FWIW, I guess the pre-season pundits were absolutely correct picking us last in the conference. I didn’t give credit to just how unsuited our linemen were to run pro style over diving at knees.

    Graham showed, again, his ability to stay in the pocket. Overall, not a good pass/comp %, but still love him. Mason showed good ability to run and find gaps as usual. Again, we had some receivers miss some catchable passes. Rush defense still needs major improvement on the edge. Offense needs to learn to move faster. PNode still refuses to do what works.

    Injuries on the offensive line really hurt, but liked the offense in general. Defense is disappointing, but also due to the lack of depth on the defensive line

    If we can put together a full game defensively we may actually win something. That second qyarter was backbreaking.

    Graham looked good. When the line gave him time.

    Yates now apparently 2nd string QB.

    We ran 1 play under center, it was the end game spike.

    Tech has yet to coverthe spread.

    This game showed how strong our O would've been with CPJ's scheme

    Mason and Howard looked great. Graham looked better but still missed some wide open TDs. Defense got tired again but played hard second half. Growth in most aspects but the line is still letting Graham get killed. SO to Oliver for taking on the new role and putting his team first. He needs more touches.

    Housed by Duke until they lost interest. Good news is that I've been informed it's all the players' fault. We just need an entire new team to compete, so I expect good games around 2023 - just around the corner.

    Yeah, needed to weather the storm in the 2nd quarter. That last pass would have beat the spread

    But a lot of that came from running....JS

    Too bad all of our fans can’t see the obvious like you do.

    Our OL and DL need HGH and an unlimited supply of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, stat.

    We can probably pull off the 2nd one but the first will be tricky.

    Kmag said it. Duke was more physical on both lines. We never competed in several short yardage situations. Duke got out to a big lead in the first half and just waited out the clock in the second. We did look better in the second half, but I don't know how much that had to do with Duke's lead. I suspect if we had ever gotten close they would have scored a lot more.

    I've lived through a lot of up and down eras, but it's hard to remember us being this bad.
