Perhaps Clemson is gifted sufficient to beat the lack of its beginning quarterback, plus 4 turnovers, a blocked punt, a number of missed tackles and a failure to punch the ball in on three tries from the opponent’s 1-yard line. (Then once more, the Tigers are ranked No. 1 exactly as a result of they don’t make these errors.)
Much more importantly, although, the Cavaliers aren’t remotely adequate to underestimate any FBS opponent. Lindell Stone thinks that, coming off an encouraging efficiency in opposition to Clemson, his workforce didn’t put together nicely sufficient.
“I’m just a little bit shocked [at the loss], however its wasn’t an accident or a fluke,” mentioned Stone, who threw three landing passes in aid of Brennan Armstrong, who left within the first half with an obvious concussion.
“We didn’t put together sufficient to win, and we didn’t have the correct mindset. Coming to the stadium this morning, I felt like we hadn’t ready sufficient. That’s one thing we now have to enhance.”
That’s true, as a result of these Cavaliers don’t have the athletes to make sufficient large performs to rally in opposition to a high quality opponent just like the Wolfpack (three–1).
At 6-foot-7, freshman Lindell Davis Jr. is a tempting goal, however most of Virginia’s different wideouts can greatest be termed “possession receivers.” Beginning tailback Wayne Taulapapa is nice at grinding out yardage, however he received’t win many foot races or break off many chunk good points.
