Embarrassing. Thought we may struggle but didn’t see this coming. Getting blown up at the LOS. Just what it is.

At least they have fought back and didn’t lay down.

One if the big differences from the spring is we are not getting the turnovers like we did then. Also having a qb who has a td/int ratio of 0/10 is not good

But our run defense is Swiss cheese today

Yep. Try as we might, our football program isn't MVFC level. UT Martin wouldn't be top half of that league.

Our other sports would be fine. I just hope the delay of a conference move is only because it's taking a while finding a football home.

The staff needs to make better use of the transfer portal and bring in some 5th and even 6th year seniors like our opponents do...

Massey has us winning the rest of our games which would put us at 8-3 at the end of the season.

Will that get us in the playoffs?

Depends on how the rest of the league goes. Right now it looks like UTM is heads above all rest. I would say we will need to somehow get help to win or tie for the conference to get in.

So what causes something like this? It was billed as a battle between the top defenses and offenses in the OVC. MSU had been playing really well, especially defensively, and yet we were demolished. Is this a result of UTM having better players, or were they more motivated for a homecoming game? Or are their assistant coaches just really that much better than ours at breaking down film and we have become too predictable? Really puzzled. I expected a tough game, but not this. I am actually worried about having a winning conference record, regardless of what Massey says.

Points off turnovers.

We gave them 21 points off 3 turnovers.

The first 5 possessions for UT Martin all ended in touchdowns.

The first 5 possessions for Murray State yielded 1 FG, 2 Punts and 2 Turnovers.

That's your ball game right there.

Dean Hood is more interested in developing "good young men" than he is at developing good football players. If faced with the issue he will take good character over good players EVERY time. Not saying this this is wrong and not saying you cant do both. Just saying this is Dean Hood. He will coach the "attitude" out of young men trying to make them "good people"

Only 1 OVC team making the playoffs. You have to win out and hope for help.
