    Better than nothing. Kelsy stood out on O. Both QBs showed good arms and agility,particularly Craven. Kee looked pretty good overall. Cavenas stood out on DL as did Robb,Caslow ,Lambert and Barrett. With so few bodies hard to say we learned much of importance.

    I look at the B & W game as a time to get some fresh air. There is very little we can take from it. There was a pretty decent crowd there and I’m glad it became somewhat of a game rather than a controlled scrimmage. I was also glad to see some live hitting this year. Both QBs looked OK. Neither stood out. The one pass from Craven to Anderson (I think) was a beauty. It’s too early to project. The weather was great though.

    What about our DB play???? That is a main concern for us. #1 continues his play from last yr, out of position and burned for both long Td passes to Kelsey and Anderson. Wish we would have seen who they like returning kicks

    #1 will be on the field and probably a captain in the fall. If you recall #26 was the one getting burned the most last season. I think our main concern is sacking the QB like in the previous years when we were great. No pressure = completions. Hope new scheme gets to the QB and we lead the league in sacks once again.

    You think #1 for captain? I guess the team will decide. Yes #26 was the target last yr of most offenses. Burned the “most”, lol. Yes it was a competition because they got burned regularly. Was hoping they learned from last yr. Didnt see that. The safeties looked good though. Like #27 at lb to, instead of safety. He wont start though.

    Was looking for Kee to have a breakout day, he didnt. I see one of the freshman stealing his minutes and getting them ready for the future. Nana looks like a bruiser that can get those tough yards.

    Based on coach Coen’s post-game comments, I think you’re probably right about the freshman RBs, LG. I wasn’t able to watch the spring game, had to take daughter to an appointment & birthday party. But it’s good to hear that Nana can get the short, tough yards. Did he get significantly more carries than Kee? From LFN’s write-up, Nana nearly doubled Kee’s yardage. If the carries were pretty balanced, I’d think Nana would be the apparent leader in that race. But I’m also gathering that neither of them made a big impression.

    I have learned to take away nothing from the spring game. I believe the secondary averaged about 4-5 picks over the last 2 years. I thought they may be the strength of the defense. That didn’t work out. BB looked terrible 2 years ago, and then sparkled during the season. This was just a glorified practice designed to showcase the team for the fan base.
    I was glad however to see them hitting this year. I tend to agree with Andy that if you don’t tackle in practice, you tend to forget how in games.
    Just my opinion.

    wow all this talk about the DB’s, is there a chance that any of the incoming freshman would be ready to at least compete a little bit for some time

    1. It was very hard to tell where people stood in regards to the DBs because Leaks was out and there was only barely a team of DBs present to run the defense – aside from OL, it was the next-thinnest position out there, with Leaks and others gone. I thought Rigaud, Lambert and Q. Jones all stood out, honestly, but it was hard to judge without a full group out there.

    Plus, Kelsey’s TD didn’t have a single body anywhere near him. That’s on the DB unit.

    2. With a shade under 50 bodies in spring ball, freshmen will be in the mix for the depth chart pretty much everywhere. I detail some of those areas in my latest blog post:

    But not just RB and 2nd string QB, it’s easy to see OL, DB with a chance for freshmen to break through simply on sheer numbers.

    You thought Rigauld stood out? Good or bad? Lmao! Same Dbs starting as last yr…..same results. I hope they’ve gotten better. Verdict still out on Leaks. Rigauld looks like the same.

    Yes just a fan, I think the freshman Dbs will push for time. If the coaches hold the Dbs accountable for their actions

    Unlike LG,doubt we’ll see any frosh early. Perhaps ,later in the season,they may compete for some PT. Our entire D was atrocious last year. Plenty of blame to spread around. The primary cause was an absolutely ineffectual Dline,which could not stop the run or pressure the AB. This put inordinate pressure on DBs to come up to play run. Lots of big plays over the top of Ss. We compounded the Dline’s ineptitude by abysmal tackling across the board.Staff has emphasized tackling drills,unlike last year. We’ll see if new D and a real NG will improve D.

    Sorry to see LG so unhappy with the DBs at a brown and white scrimmage. From watching the past 6 , it is hard to gauge the defense as injuries and vanilla game leaves us all wondering. The front 7(6 if you believe in the 3-3-5) will make or break the secondary,period. I’m always focused on the QB. The best decision by any QB Saturday was the throw to the stands when nothing was open…………One of the worst decisions was the first TD pass. A perfect throw and catch was 7 points,but when the coaches look at Hudl , they will see a wide open #82 on a 15 yard crossing pattern. To win. you have to go with the odds and take the open 15 yard pass with room to run.(i.e. LUM) I liked both QBs, Nick will have to be better than last season to get the nod. AS far as RBs, I say watch out for the Brisker kid….

    Sorry to see Miller so unhappy with a Qb decision to throw a TD instead of a 15yd completion at a Brown and white game, hilarious. I think the coaches will give Kee the nod because hes a Sr, at least early. I thought the Bragalone kid was suppose to be the next LU hall of famer, not Brisker (who i like) who played with AND against some ATHLETES in high school in GA. I agree Rich, the whole D was terrible, but the DBs just stuck out and was more visible. Out of position to much with horrible tackling. I still see the Bucknell kid catching bombs and taking quick slants 70yds.
