|Joel Lamp, JUDolphins.com Editor: Well, that's it for this week. Not a lot of questions on the Labor Day edition, but I do appreciate you taking the time to join us.
Here's a few thoughts as we turn our focus to Gardner-Webb.
1. We are a sandwich game for them - between money games at Ohio and Mississippi State. This game is circled because it's pretty much the only one they have a chance at winning in the first three weeks. They are going to be focused solely on us this week.
2. It's a tough prep week for the coaching staff because it's a COMPLETELY different offense. Last week, it was focus on stopping the ground game of BCU. This week, it's stopping the aerial attack of G-Webb. They line up four-wide on almost every play and want to put it in the air. Our defensive backs will have a lot on their plate this weekend.
3. The offense needs to be more consistent. JU had four three-and-outs and two other drives that had just four plays. To be successful against G-Webb, the offense is going to have to take advantage of any opportunity they get as well as creating some scoring opportunities of their own. They have the playmakers to do that, it's just a matter of getting in a rhythm and flow in this offense. Once that happens, I see some really big things happening for this team.
