    Default YSU Post Game Thoughts & Discussion

    1) Defense looks solid. One bad drive but their TE's seemed to be pretty big targets.
    2) Special shoutout to Firstname Lastname, Valley DPOY frontrunner IMO.
    3) Jury still out on Zeb. 50% completion rate and the ball was never where it should have been on the key downs. I posted on the GDT that Lance's absence was apparent on those stalled-out drives. In a lot of those situations Lance would have just put the team on his back and made something happen. It's going to be a rough adjustment without that. And that's no knock on Zeb (or anyone else in the QB room). It's just impossible to replace that wildcard. If we're going to repeat Zeb has to be DRASTICALLY better than he was today.
    4) I love the pitch between the tackles. Let's our backs use their speed advantage to make one fast read and a cut.
    5) I'm sick, absolutely fucking sick, for Seth Wilson. Bussey/Kobe are going to form a sort of Lightning & Lightning combo that is exciting. Who is going to be the bruising back? Does Hunter (arguably the most athletic big guy on the team) get some snaps at tailback? Wish Saybein was still here.
    6) Thet jet sweep is going to be done to death this year. Not sure if that's a good thing or bad.
    7) KVLY is trash. Timmerman is stupid.
    8) I'm glad football is back but the whole spring season and half empty dome is so 2020. Just weird.

    9) I loved watching #1 on YSU. He was animated and cocky despite the ass kicking his team was taking the whole time. Fake it until you make it, young man.

    Zeb has a powerful arm, but the passing game was clunky today (missed throws, receivers tripping, etc.). I think we had one third down conversion through the air today. We gotta work that out in case our run game gets shutdown.

    Went about as expected for game 1. KYLE was great and huge improvement, but KVLY production still sucks. Get rid of the sideline reporter and actually tell us who is on the field for the Bison would be helpful.

    Wish Adam Cofield was still here.

    I forgot all about Cofield. He'd have helped a lot. There's a huge hole there that someone has to fill.

    Definitely some rust. Canít really take away a lot from a team that hasnít played in a year+ with a decent size of new starters

    D was solid. O needs to improve. I’ll give Zeb a pass for this game but this game only. Was hoping for quite a bit more out of him. KVLY needs to go away. It’s a win and I’ll give it an overall 7 out of 10.
    Run the damn ball!! PRO FBS

    I don't know if I agree about his arm. I thought the deep balls kinda "fluttered" on him. He does seem pretty good throwing on the rollout.

    In any case this is game one. Kids are just cutting their teeth, it will be interesting to see next week.
    The weather in Fargo keeps the undesirables out.....
