I've rewatched the Mizzou game, and he came out of the gate amped up and throwing everybody high. If he had just settled down a bit, it could have changed the complexion of that game.
Definitely not complaining, one of the more exciting games I've ever watched.
Which leads back to my original point. He needs to get off to quick starts. Even in his first start against ECU in 2012 I think he connected with 1 of his first 6 before hitting Byrd on the fly route? After that he settled in.
Same with UAB that year. I remember seeing Spurrier chunk a playsheet and told Seth Strickland to warm up after Dylan missed on 3 or 4 passes in a row. As soon as that happened, Dylan hit a big one and got going.
Its imperative that he connects on some medium/long range throws early this year.
