I get nothing but error messages.
I'm having issues as well. Thanks ESPN.
Yup, looks like every game besides Tulane works

Really, this wasn't even a good FCS D Line, let alone a D Line of the caliber we will see next week and throughout the league season. Same thing on the O Line. GSU was so bad in the trenches I don't think you can really take much from this at all. And they were not in the right game shape to play us -- how many times did their guys cramp up (vs how many of ours did? Zero)?
Knowing that, we also didn't show them much. Once we led 31-0 we really grinded the clock down and had no interest in giving Navy anything interesting on film. I guess the one big positive sign (aside from Banks looking mostly comfortable and us protecting the ball well) is that there were enough second half mistakes that can become teachable moments for our guys.
Overall, yawn. Let's see what happens vs Navy.

They committed a delay of game penalty on the FIRST play from scrimmage for their entire season. They committed 11 penalties. They literally tackled themselves on a kickoff return. I hate to keep bringing up all their cramps but Tulane didn't have one player cramp all night, which tells you how physically unprepared Grambling was. They were exhausted by the third quarter. We could have named the score but Willie kept it vanilla and slowed the game down.
If they turned the ball over 4 times like Southern did, you'd have seen a similar outcome to that game.
This isn't to take anything away from our offense. It does look better, and Banks has potential. But we won't really know much about this team until we play someone who can physically match up with us. None of their OL or DL passed the eyeball test.
