Grades for Old Dominion game

OFFENSE: F

Until the Herd finished with passes of 26 and 24 yards, it had 164 total yards, 8 first downs.

DEFENSE: F

Didn’t tackle well against Ray Lawry, who rushed for 209 yards. Defense made itself susceptible to easy throws downfield.

SPECIALS TEAMS: B-

Props to Kaare Vedvik for running for a first down on the fake punt. And where was this Brandon Rodgers guy hiding?

QUARTERBACKING: F

He had problems with receivers not being open, but he is simply not accurate when they are.

COACHING: F

ODU brutally outcoached MU, it seemed. And why do you burn Brandon Rodgers’ redshirt and then finally have him returning kickoffs in Week 9? Looks as if he should have been doing it earlier.

OVERALL: F

The only question left: Is this team worse than the 2007 Herd?
