    Spring game postgame.

    So what did you think?

    I thought Tiller looked pretty good, but I was scared the first team offense could not really move the ball during the first half.

    Re: Spring game postgame.

    Receivers gotta hold on to the ball.
    Kickers looked not so good.
    Bo is terrible in pass protection.
    Schwartz just drags people with him.
    Arnaud is still locking onto one guy.
    A-Rob is running more downhill instead of trying to juke people constantly and is great at picking up the blitz.
    Both quarterbacks had a couple excellent throws, but also had some bad picks.

    You can't really tell much of anything watching one team scrimmage, but we looked like 2-10 team with a new coach.

    Unless I missed something but I thought the only miss was when guyer hit the post once.

    I was parked by you...and you're right, that's pretty much how we looked.

    I will say the offense looked a lot more comfortable with no huddle than we ever did last year. Seeing Arnaud lined up at WR in the wildcat formation knockoff was kinda funny...

    Yeah, Spears told me that the back-up center is a 2nd year walk-on. We're screwed if we have Alvarez go down.

    Re: Spring game postgame.

    The offense looked like crap last spring too.

    My favorites were the punts where no one seemed to block or care.

    Re: Spring game postgame.

    I was surprised how much penetration the defensive line was getting on Arnaud. Our offensive line sounded pretty lacklusker on the radio. I'm not surprised the offense struggled. New coordinator, early in the process, etc. Tiller sounds like he's going to be very successful before his career is over.

    The first kick he about hit his line in the backs of their heads.

    Re: Spring game postgame.

    I think the o-line will still be a strong unit come fall, theres definitely some talent and size there. And don't forget about Haughton if hes back in the fall
