Re: Hype or Analysis?
The HBC sounded pretty confident last night. He made a point of saying they were not some unstoppable juggernaut. Their average score was skewed by playing Elon, Idaho, and the shootout with Georgia Tech. I think it is safe to say they did not play a defense like ours, in an environment like ours last year. I also think Whammy has a good system for stopping these hurry up offenses. I think he is way better than Ellis Johnson was at adapting to them.
I agree it is all talking head hype. Look at the Vegas odds. That is a much more accurate assessment from an objective point of view.
