Let’s get straight to the (bullet) points. After going through the full range of emotions, the team is surprisingly calm and confident despite the opening-season loss to Maryland. After Sunday’s video session there’s more optimism within the program than you might expect. They found more good than bad, and lots of small fixable things like taking better angles, tackling better, protecting the ball, and less penalties. Generally cleaner play gets them out of Maryland with a win.

Todd Orlando said the offense edged out the defense. From what we’ve gathered it was pretty even. We did hear, “the defense looked really solid as usual,” but it’s important to note that this scrimmage was pretty vanilla and the structure was different from those in the past. It was family day, and you aren’t going to ask families of players to travel great lengths and not see their child play. Like a Little League game the staff wanted to make sure everyone got an at bat. Still, there was plenty of important work to be had.
