IMO the way these offenses are playing (or how well the defenses are playing) both teams will lose xsmiley_wix

W$M's defense looks great. Should have caught that 3rd down pass but the tackle would have kept him short of the 1st down anyhow.

Not from me, said the same thing about attendance at ASU's home game against SCSU, it's a shame.

Looks to be about 6-7K, does that sound about right? Lots of metal showing from about 25 yard lines in.

Whitney (sp?) needs to change his spikes at half time. Both defenses look stout though.

It is a little tough to watch when you don't have a dog in the fight, but if it were ASU's D locking down a good offense like 'Nova, I'd be loving it. Would hope to see a little more offensive production out of the Apps but W&M's hands have been tied by the punter.

That is the problem with the 3-3-5. It can be a very effective defense and create a lot of havoc, however it does allow the big play over the top when you mix in man to man coverage.

Great pass and not much could stop it.

In past seasons, we've typically won shootout style. In the 2004 playoffs, we didn't give up less than 35 in any of our 3 games. Laycock is well known as a bright offensive mind. However, this year, the D is so good, we're much more conservative and pick our spots.

Well it worked, but I thought he might get an extra play in there with that extra TO to make the kick a bit shorter, but your kicker hit his longest of the season - in 20 degree weather to boot.

Most of those misses were over 40. He was mostly automatic inside 40. His range is 50, but his accuracy goes to hell over 40 yards. I was a little surprised he was 2nd team, but I think he made it on sheer quantity of FGs made (including 4/7 against UVA).

Yes, as some mentioned on the pregame thread, our red zone offense was terrible to start the year, so he was kicking a lot. Thought we moved the ball really well inside the 20 in the first half...of course, it was our own 20, but hey possibly more important than the red zone the way this game is going xrulesx

I'm going to be honest, and don't know much about W&M.. are they known as an offensive team? I know they're a good defensive team, but haven't heard much about the offense, but they look like they are doing just fine on the offensive side..

Historically speaking, W&M has an explosive and high scoring offense. The D was historically.....not real good. It was always a matter of we would need to put at least 35 on the board and hope for the best.

This year completely breaks the mold for us (and we saw glimpses of it last year). The D this year has been the strongest part of the team. So it's pretty new for us Tribe fans to have full confidence in the D, and not freak out when the O only puts 20 on the board. xthumbsupx

Yes, as some mentioned on the pregame thread, our red zone offense was terrible to start the year, so he was kicking a lot. Thought we moved the ball really well inside the 20 in the first half...of course, it was our own 20, but hey possibly more important than the red zone the way this game is going xrulesx

not sure many people read the pre-game thread, apparently there was "another" thread that garnered most of the attention...excuse my ignorance, i had no idea ANY kicker in fcs had attempted 33 field goals this season.

The O is looking pretty good right now against a solid D..

Although, its been the same routes the entire time -- but until it stops working, I say continue it

He led the CAA in net yards per punt this year. Doesn't appear to be dealing well with the cold. He generally is a punt it high and create the fair catch type of punter, but the punts that usually go ~40-45 yards are going ~30 yards tonight.

I guess holding our offense to 444 yards is a pretty good job. I think that's what he meant by noone stopping us though.

And we shouldn't have had to score with 10 seconds left if we didn't have that fluke fumble on the punt return (or if he did the smart theing and fair caught it xmadx).
