Grades for FIU game

Share This Article

OFFENSE: F

Didn’t break the 300-yard mark until late in the game with the score already 24-7. 78 yards rushing, 75 by the 2 tailbacks. And then there was the burning of 13 minutes on 2 drives that did not result in a score.

DEFENSE: D

Somehow kept the Herd in the game before those aforementioned 2 drives, but gave up 2 more 100-yard rushers.

SPECIAL TEAMS: F

That painful blocked field goal, plus kickoff returns weren’t good.

QUARTERBACKING: D

It’s tough to flunk a 301-yard performance, but this could have qualified.

COACHING: F

So Anthony Anderson runs over a defender and gets inside the 1-yard line and what do you do? Put in a smaller back, of course. … And how ’bout those swing passes on 3rd-and-18?

OVERALL: F

One more week … I keep telling myself that … one more week.
