We are good

Post by QuackAttackAggie » August 30th, 2019, 9:47 pm

But we are still cursed. First game running a 4-2-5. I anticipate this will be our worst fame defensively. Wake had some good players and their QB really showed up.

Secondary needs a lot of work, but we are basically a top 25 caliber team outside of that. If we ever shore it up we will be fine, otherwise going to lose some games we should have won like tonight

I'm more optimistic after this game than I was before it. We will lose to lsu. But I saw more from our offense than I expected by far.

I definitely agree. But we saw so much LESS from our defense it’s pitiful.

I was honestly pleasantly surprised by a lot of players. But could not be more disappointed in coaching.

For the most part I agree. Our offense is very Vanilla and way easier to defend than last year.

Receivers were really good. OL was good too. Warren is a stud.

Sanford was unimpressive which feels weird to say given the numbers we put up but he was.

Secondary was just so so bad. Williams was awful. Bond was good but other than the secondary was really bad.

This game probably didn’t move me one way or the other. I thought 7-5 before the year (i think) and I think that’s where I’d peg us now

If 35 points and 500 plus yards of offense is Vanilla I can’t wait to see when they spice it up. Don’t throw picks in the end zone and they win

There were numerous “one plays” that this game came down to. That 3rd and 4 with two minutes left. The 4th down Wake TD. The pick in the endzone...

Goddamnit....

Good point but they are a bad defensive team.

There was a lot to like. There was a lot that needs work.

With just a few close plays going the other way, we could have lost or won this game with a 30 point margin.

We aren’t beating LSU. But I’m going to need to see more to say anything else.

Is wake that good? Or are we not as good on the interior as we thought.

#3 for Wake ran some incredible pursuit angles with great speed . Plays that would be sure fire touchdowns against a lesser team.

Wake had a lot of weapons. They pushed the pile like I’ve never seen.

The Holding/PI after Woodward stripped and Scored.

Pick in the end zone..

The more I look at the stats and think about this game the more I agree that we will be good. Wake has a potent offense and took advantage of our short backend with their huge receivers. I think we are good and will get better each week.

The loss stings bad but I'm actually more optimistic for wins then before the game. 8-9 wins.

I don't think the offense was bad. But there was abysmal play calling in crucial moments that cost us the game. The 3rd and 4 with 2:30 call sealed our fate.

Lots of positive tonight. We will win 6-7 though, we suck on the road and always have, this is our toughest schedule in years and the road portion is really hard. Very little chance to beat LSU, SDSU, and FSU....There is 4 losses and we will have 1-2 others.

I'll sacrifice a loss to Wake Forest in order to beat Boise State and still win 9 or 10.

Multiple chances to blow this game wide open in the first half. Should have been up 3 TDs in the first half. Still had the game won with 2 minutes left and then go ultra-conservative on offense. Go win the damn game. Instead you punt and give up 89 yards in two plays. How many times have we seen this movie?

There were some positives but we should have won this going away.

I see 8 wins as the expectation. 7 would be okay. 6 would be mediocre.

If we cant beat a mediocre wake team I wouldn't expect us to beat Boise. We are their biatch in football.

It’s not an either/or equation. Great teams go win both. No excuse for not winning this game tonight.

I feel similarly. SDSU in two weeks feels like a must win game, or we’re talking 6-6 or 7-5 as a best case scenario rather quickly.

Young teams make mistakes that cost them close games. We definitely saw that tonight. We aren't as good as last year yet, but we do have the talent.

Play calling. Five straight runs up the middle to Warren is going to lose a lot of games.

Good point but they are a bad defensive team.
[Wake is also a pretty good offensive team. They averaged over 30 points per game last year which is not bad.]

We all hope and think that USU can take the next leap and become a Boise State type caliber team year in and year out and have a 10+ year run of sustained success.
The biggest difference is that Boise State won these kind of games. Boise State won the big games like the Fiesta Bowls and other games against Virginia Tech, Georgia, Oregon etc. where we have lost the games again the power 5 conference teams. . (Auburn, Tenn. Michigan State and now Wake Forest multiple times.

I predict to 7-5 or 8-4 which considering our resources is acceptable to me. I hope for more, but considering how bad it was years ago I will never wallow in that kind of record.

This is a rebuilding year for us. I really like where we are at. Whether we have Love or Columbi next year, we are going to gain a lot of good experience this season and win some games. I think we should win 8 this season. If we beat sdsu we are certainly going to be in the running for 9 wins and the division.
