Strong does not have a killer instinct. This is a fact.

This is true, I've heard he's a Street Fighter guy.

Stats I saw said 5.5 per carry, holding them to 2.1 ..... and I guess it's all about how you want to look at things. We didn't really have to drive the ball that much on them. After the first two negative drives shaking off JM's first start jitters, there were 11 drives with Jordan under center and we scored on 8 of them. I realize that 11/11 would have been optimal but still ..... but I do agree that we won't really know much until SMU but just pointing out that, as usual, you can look at a game and glean what you want to from it.

You are correct.  Fuzzy math on my part.  But that last drive still contributed mightily to those numbers.  8 carries for 89 yards.  Like I said, I hope I'm wrong and we run it for 200+ against SMU.

We played SC State. We had one sustained drive against them that I remember.  We have no idea if we've improved until we play SMU.  We averaged about 4 yds per carry. We had 2 drives of 75+, 1 other over 50.  It's better than losing but not sure how much we improved.  They drove the ball on us more than we did on them.  Fortunately they turned it over a bunch.  

My thoughts precisely. While it was nice to have a victory with lots of points and turnovers, we cannot assume this means we have fixed our issues. SMU and the rest of the AAC schedule will be much stronger competition. If anything-- this gave our players a chance to remember how to win a game, make big plays, and enjoy themselves while doing so. As much as some folks despise starting out a season against an FCS opponent, not doing so has an impact as well. Having that "cupcake" game can expose problems, knock off the rust without risking an early loss, and in general get the team some positive inertia. Playing our toughest team first has the opposite effect unless we are firing on all cylinders.

You can feast on that cupcake but we should look at it for what it is and be aware of areas of weakness.

Well said Mike.   This is especially important for a team that was in the middle of an 8 game losing streak. Some people forget these are young men and not emotionless robots.
