For the first time all year, against an FBS team, it was actually fun. The 2nd half way more of course.
I was recording and started watching almost 2 hours after the game started.
I had to refrain from any computer or phone interaction.
I drank seven beers during the first half and that includes fast forwarding through the lag time between plays, commercials, reviews, timeouts, etc.
Midway through the third quarter I decided to just watch the game.
As abyssmal as the first half was, the second half was even better.
The entire offense outside of McCombs looked disasterous the first half- inlcuding both McEntee and McCummings.
The second half, as whacked as this seems, showed the need for the dual-headed QB. Personally I like having McCummings as the QB, but McEntee converted a couple of second/third and longs to extend drives that McCummings most likely doesn't make.
I think the defensive solution against Uconn is easy. When #18 is taking snaps, bring the barn. McEntee doesn't react well to pressure. Whel #11 is behind center, rush 3 and keep five players five yards off the line. Read, react and tackle. Fortunately SU never figured this out.
Final thought. SU is by far the worst team we've faced outside of Fordham. They really SUck at all facets of the game.
Syracuse does suck. We are not any better. Maybe if you combined these two teams you could field a middle of the road FBS program this year. At least we won. And good for P to get a measure of revenge.
