    Middle Tennessee defense strikes again........

    7-7

    Said it before and I'll say it again. Desmond Anderson is not a Division 1 DB.

    I’m sitting in that corner of the end zone. They tried to hit a shot on him in their first possession and their QB overthrew it. Helluva catch and run.

    It comes down to the basics. That defensive hit on the QB cost us getting them off the field and allowed them to drive and score a FG. Bad snap on our FG attempt caused the shank which cost us 3 points. We should be up by at least 10 by halftime.

    EMBARRASSMENT ALERT:

    ON CBS Broadcast on FB, THEY CUT TO THE CBS TRUCK TO SHOW WHAT GOES ON INSIDE AND THEY SAID "GET A CROWD SHOT THEY SAID...DON'T DO THAT...THERE IS NO CROWD".

    Hilarity Continues.

    Our poor defensive line rearing it's ugly head. Marshall starting to figure out they can run at will when the box isn't stacked

    Our defensive line, and front 7 as a whole, is getting destroyed on this drive.

    Haven't seen that fake the screen to both outsides back to the middle since Joe Craddock (I think it was) was at QB.

    Some folks made it in after kickoff but it was not a good look for sure. Stock will prolly call out the no-shows.

    All in all it was a good conference win to build on for a bowl bid.

    I expect the Raiders to win 5 - 6 more games then lose the bowl game.

    Went to the Braves NLDS game last night. Nothing like baking in 96 degree weather in October.

    This game was a must win. Marshall wasn’t good and they really defeated themselves more than we actually won the game. Our defense saved the day: Brooks and Moffat made big plays and we got turnovers to seal the game away. This was enjoyable!

    Next two games will tell us if we contend for an outright championship or do we stub our toes. We will have to earn our stripes: Marshall was not that good and they made poor coaching and clock decisions that made our job easier to come away with a victory.

    Congratulations Blue Raiders!! 1-0 in C-USA!!

    I called it. Now we lead the series since we've een in the same conference. The D stood strong and the O was ok. We left a lot of meat on the bone. Next week is what worries me. FAU will give us nothing and they will take a lot.

    To be honest, not sure I feel like I know anymore about this team after seeing Marshall and seeing us play and beat them.

    We beat a decent team with a bad QB today. We played OK. If we don't improve significantly we won't sniff a CUSA title. We'll know a lot more after @FAU and @UNT. Kiffin has to be looking for some serious payback.

    This team better not be resting on it's laurels after tonight. Shit gets real next week against FAU.

    That’s the thing with this team. Heck. With almost all of Stock’s teams. There is no real identity. You never know what you are going to get. That can be good but man can it be bad too.

    Yet we put up 10 more points on them than Boise St. did. Asher made them look silly at times. I knew we would come out and play a lot better than we have and Marshall probably seemed easy compared to who we've played. Marshall played VMI, Ohio and Cincy.

    Glad that they got the win but how do we know anything about this team? I agree that we will know more after 2 weeks but it is Jekyll and Hyde every year. Guarantee we get to six wins.

    Keep getting Dobson and Chissolm in space and we will win 8-9 games. Jimmy Marshall and Pierce are also difference makers. We have players, we simply need a more crisp strategy.

    Asher O'Hara played in the 2nd game and 6th game last year before redshirting so we will likely see guys play this year and also redshirt.
