Agree.

After the disappointment subsides, there was a lot of positives about the game.

- Team competed all night.  Didn't quit.

- WR's developing into weapons

- McCloud has been pretty sharp throwing the ball 2 weeks in a row

- Special teams created plays.

- Defense came away with turnovers and played well in stretches.

- Ford and Joiner ran well.  Ford was unstoppable in stretches.

McCloud being crisp throwing the ball this week was big for me...I thought Temple would own him today...now the fumbles are unacceptable...but they can be corrected...

For those complaining about McCloud's weak arm, he threw the ball 52-53 yards in the air on the attempt to Williams.  Yes, I checked, when watching replay.  Ball left his hand at our 41 yard line and landed on Temple's 6 yard line.  You do the math.

Pretty sure he could hit 55-60 if completely airing it out.

Not an absolute cannon, but plenty strong enough.  Pretty good, actually.

After these last 2 games anybody still making cracks about his arm when it comes to throwing the ball is just clueless or trolling ...... now, ball security can use some work.

I think some really believe he has a weak arm.  I would like to challenge them to go out on the field and see how close they can get to McCloud's distance.  McCloud can throw it 55 plus.  Most of the guys commenting on his arm strength can probably throw it about 35 max (which actually isn't bad for the average male).

55 yards is completely within the average range in D1 football.  I've seen him throw it that distance.  That's even good.  Is he Patrick Mahomes back there, throwing it 70 yards, no.  Doesn't have to be.  McKenzie Milton didn't have the greatest arm strength either, and he did ok.  I'd like to know what some people are watching.

And those that continue only to spot negative things to talk about are also trolling.

I knew it wasn't a perfect game but when I hopped on, I went through 3 or 4 threads with some stupid ******** on them until I hit this one. Thought all were just looking for some positivity to give a glimpse of hope for the future........ obviously it's not all.

    "There is no inherent fear among this group of players. The fear of failing drove the program from day one - the fear of failing the coaches, the fan base, the university, each teammate, themselves. Now, as we head into the biggest game in our history at home on a national stage against the highest ranked team to step on OUR field, the players are taking an introspective look at themselves. Unfortunately, I don't know if they get it. They lack the fear."
