This won't be a live-blog, but check the comments for the rambling rants, raves, and praise for Vanderbilt as they take on the Huskies.

I think the defense has played well and, with the exception of 3rd down conversions, I'm pretty happy with the way the offense has looked. Larry looks poised in the pocket, and the offense is clearly willing to mix it up as far as whether to pass or run. Still, Commodores need to score points...and fast.

Seamus O'Toole said...

The one thing I would add to that is I think Larry could do a little bit better of a job selling his fakes. His fakes look a little contrived, kind of like a high school QB. But one step at a time I guess - and I agree, he seems poised in the pocket.

Bobby O'Shea said...

That was the worst possession we've seen since the start of the game. It looks like the defense is going to have to make a play to spark the team.

Seamus O'Toole said...

...and right on cue, we let them get outside the tackles and into the red zone on a huge run.

Bobby O'Shea said...

We may now have a serious problem...

Seamus O'Toole said...

ALMOST - LET'S GO. Nice kickoff return by War-Nor down inside the UConn 25.

Bobby O'Shea said...

UCONN took a 14-0 lead last week over Buffalo, before letting them back in the game.

The "spark" we were looking for might have come from Stormin' Norman.

They need 7 here.

Seamus O'Toole said...

Great pass to Barden and we're right back in it. Let's go... need some confidence and swagger now.

Bobby O'Shea said...

That was the answer we needed...let's GO D.

'Bilt said...

Nice TD there. UCONN cannot defend the pass - if Larry can make a few throws, dudes have been wide open.

Bobby O'Shea said...

3 and out + bad punt + great throw = TIE GAME, BABY

Seamus O'Toole said...

AND A PICK BY CASEY - HEY NOW!!!

Bobby O'Shea said...

UCONN tried to get it back right away and Casey makes a very good plan. Commodores need to move the chains here.

Seamus O'Toole said...

Getting 4-5 yards on first down makes all the difference in the world. Another first down...the complexion of this game has completely changed. Need to keep the momentum going and keep spreading it around. It's a shame they are reviewing that because it would be nice to keep moving quickly and wear down the Huskies D.

@vandyfootball says first time Larry has 2 td passes in a game

Seamus O'Toole said...

YES KRAUSE ON THE REVERSE! 21-14 just like that.

Seamus O'Toole said...

The key there was everyone got their blocks.

Bobby O'Shea said...

I've never seen Vanderbilt score this many points so quickly...

Seamus O'Toole said...

I guarantee we never have. 3 TDs in 3:38 I think they just said.

AD said...

Both Ds seem pretty porous

Bobby O'Shea said...

Move it to the live blog
