Vandy Game: Coaches, Earn Your Paycheck
Very interesting to watch how the players respond to adversity this week as Carolina prepares for Vandy.
After watching the UGA tape, there is no doubt some frustration and perhaps finger pointing/blame game on how things unraveled in Athens...especially on the defensive side of the ball.
The first 2 or 3 series of the Vandy game will show me if the coaches rallied the players this week and have them believing most of the team's goals are still out there.
Think the offense will keep churning out points (home games are not really an issue on offense). Special teams -- especially on returns -- needs something "special" to happen...it's been disappointing so far.
The main concern - Will Spurrier's input AND/OR the Defensive coaching staff get these young men to play together and make a big play...cause a turnover, a statement hit, gang tackling or get a score on D. Coaches need to really earn their six or seven figure salaries for weeks like this.
More or less, will the team get the swagger back and bounce back in their step when they take the field Saturday??
Hope so and want to see the whole team play their best game Sat. night against a decent Vandy team.
