Re: Gm 11 Football @ Towson 2pm Sat Nov 18

Watched the game with the Towson Announcers. Interesting that one of the Announcers was surprised that Lawson was the starting QB, he said he thought #17 was the started based on how well he threw in Pregame warmups. Other announcer said he was a redshirt Freshman. #17 is Vito Priore. I had synced ...

Here is how much attention I have been paying. I have been to 38 of Fleming's 44 games, the last 4 spring games, most pre season scrimmages, and have seen film of almost every practice during the last 3 years.

That there is even a discussion of bringing back a coach with a record of 7 - 37 is pure craziness. The 3 wins this year are against quality programs but they are all significantly down this year.

Kicker has been inconsistent? Did they not trust him? Was there a way to avoid the pick? Seems to be what it was. We played it safe against CMU and he missed the kick that would have won the game.

He is able to make plays with his legs when the pocket breaks down and avoid turnovers. Defense has give...

QB position has definitely been upgraded. He does remind me of a better version of Vazzano. Has a ton of arm strength, it will be interesting to see if his timing and touch improves. Remember that most QBs have all of Spring practice, summer workouts and pre-season camp to work out with receivers. (...
