Default Bright spots from Belk Bowl...for real

I'm not going to sunshine pump what sucked from the Belk Bowl...vent thread and game thread have pretty much covered it...but there were some positives.

1-The defense.
I know, a tad controversial...but held UVA to 28 points (team average) and the last TD given up I pin on the lack of possession by the offense, and lack of not putting points on the board after getting deep into UVA territory twice, and throwing a BAD interception. In today's football, holding the opponent to a TD per quarter ain't too bad...your offense can't score 30, there is not much more you can ask a defense to do, not including all the injuries.

2-RJ Roderick...guy played his butt off. Caused a fumble, played with energy and emotion.

3-Hank Manos...played pretty well in his first start. A few off center snaps, but for the most part, not a bad outing.

4-Bryan Edwards...overall, a solid game. Caught passes when they were catchable. NO TDs, but I don't put that on him.

5-Jaycee Horn...tough injury, but was playing fairly well.

6-Mon Denson...not used enough, when he got hte ball, made a play. Can't ask much more that that.

7-Offensive gameplan...hear me out. With UVA averaging 28 per game, and a depleted defense, the right call is to turn it into a shootout and overwhelm. Against UF, team came out hot...against Clemson, lit up the board...first half of Akron got scores quick.

The plan was clear to try to air it out and get UVA down early. Nice strategy, but the offense did not execute. That is on the players.

If football was played without coaches, I would agree.

Bright spots from Belk Bowl...for real - should be the shortest thread in Cockytalk history.

BMAC didn't throw an interception, or throw into triple coverage....guys were open underneath all day.

D, can't ask much more than to hold a team a TD a quarter.

You can argue coach should get the guys motivated to play...but from being in lockerrooms, sometimes no speech will get a team focused if the players don't want to be there. No halftime rah-rah speech will wake guys up sometimes.

So, if the players don't execute, who is responsible for getting them to execute? How many players from yesterdays game should be fired?

No, but pulling scholarships will. Benching players will. Not letting players make the trip will.

I'm not for pulling schollies, but benching poor performances can do wonders. Riding the pine is an excellent motivator for competitors.

I think you and I agree on more than the threads may show.
Appreciate the input.

Believe the horse to water saying fits here.
You can teach all you want, but if that horse ain't drinking, there ain't much more you can do.

We aren't there at practice, so we don't know. We can only make conjecture on what we see
