Good oner Pete! I know Bradwell and the new Fullback will be glad to open things up for the backs as possible receivers.

The more we hear about the offense the more excited I get for the season. I would love for us to make a statement and hang 40 on a “good” FIU team. The next 22 days can’t get go by fast enough.

I just got out of a 3 year coma. How is Tanner Lee looking so far? Hoping this is the year he turns the corner.

Thank you for the report. Not as awful as past years, but that report should make everyone more hesitant about bold FIU predictions. Scrimmages are sloppy. But man a bunch of shanked FG’s and sloppy inefficient passing sounds like too much of the same. I’ll have nightmares tonight. Hoping that our Top 10 all world (#1 G5) Dline is the genesis of some of the problems (please god let that be the case). This was sobering. Hope springs eternal . . . Until a scrimmage report 🤮

Great job with the practice report winwave! As always, you do a great job when you get to see scrimmages. From reading your report it sounds like the offense needs a lot of work. McMillan and our other QB's are not very accurate (see his stats from last year) and that needs to improve dramatically. Our D will be very good, but we may have to resort to running the ball frequently if we cannot complete 60% of our passes.

Winwave, do you think it was a case of our D dominating or our O just not there yet? The kicking game sounds like it's still inconsistent as well.

As noted in the report sometimes one side will dominate a particular scrimmage and the next time out it reverses. It happened with LSU's first two scrimmages this fall. Their D dominated the first one and the offense bounced back in the next one. Also they weren't in full pads so hard to judge how some things would have played out. Then throw in the fact that Fritz is extremely secretive and he knew it was an open practice and some things may have been held back. So I'd take it with a huge grain of salt.

Meant to mention this. On the concourse behind the Glazer Club seating there is a temporary weight room set up behind a wall of chain linked fences. Maybe that's due to construction on the expansion of the weight room in Wilson.

I hope McMillan is in the NFL in 10 years! That would mean he improved tremendously from last year to this year, otherwise he doesn't get a sniff of the NFL.
