I watched about 2 1/2 quarters of the Vandy-Elon game on ESPN3. Vandy was up 21-14 when I shut it off. At that point, Elon had moved the ball very well but had 2 killer TOs - a fumble on the Vandy 30 and a pick-6 on a strange-looking WR screen.
- Larry Smith is still the QB. He is mobile. He can make a nice throw on the run and come back three plays later to throw a duck while sitting in the pocket. I'd be worried about two things - deep balls and his running ability. They ran a play out of the wildcat as well (who doesn't).
- Elon's d-line looked decent again the Vandy o-line. Their o-line is in for a rude awakening.
- They played a few RB's, Stacy stood out the most but nothing to write home about.
- Hard to get much of a feel for their WRs aside from the fact that they could get open against the Elon DBs. They have some speed and the TE Barden is a nice player.
- Elon o-line held their own against the Vandy D-line. This should be another area that we can take advantage of.
- Marve is still a beast in the middle. Guy's got popeye arms.
- The Vandy DB's missed a bunch of tackles. Elon has a nice WR who lit their secondary up, had a sick one-handed catch on a ball thrown behind him. Our WRs should have some good opportunities to showcase their skills.
- This was Franklin's first game as a head coach against a BCS opponent, we'll be coming into the game with an incredible wealth of coaching knowledge on our sideline. This is another area we really need to take advantage of.
