Things We Learned So Far.........

Southern Miss:
Tied for the #19 ranked defense in the country currently....5 total turnovers and 4 sacks for -22 yards, giving up 197 yards per game. Best defense in CUSA is currently UTSA, ranked #10 coming off a win at Baylor.

Worst defenses in the country(bottom 25):
UNT, FIU, FAU, Rice, Charlotte, La Tech and UTEP. Also in the bottom 25......ULM, giving up 416 yards to Memphis, 319 of those on the ground.

Southern Miss is -1 currently in turnovers with 5 fumbles on the year.

ULM:
Went with 2 QB's against Memphis, with Garrett Smith finishing 10/17 with 179 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT. He also led the team in rushing with 48 yards on 12 attempts, fumbling twice and losing one.

The Memphis ULM game had some heavy rain which contributed to the ball protection but ULM was one of the worst turnover teams in the country last season.

Re: Things We Learned So Far.........

I was not pleased with the two turnovers, but I took some comfort in the fact that at least one was committed by a backup.

Re: Things We Learned So Far.........

Yeah, I'm historically pessimistic about our team but I saw some positive things vs Kentucky.  I fully expected us to get our asses handed to us.....I'm serious.  The game I watched we should/could have won.   We didn't remotely get beat down and showed some promise given the fact we didn't even have a true QB starter and had 3 f'n turnovers that cost 14 points......and we were STILL in the game.   

We shall see.....but I saw enough vs Kentucky that I'm actually thinking positive right now, which given our circumstances over the years is saying quite a lot.

Re: Things We Learned So Far.........

Been saying since the summer that this would be a tricky game. Weird atmosphere and a team we're not familiar with. Plus it's our first road trip of the year. If we're not ready, this could be a prime TTT moment.

Re: Things We Learned So Far.........

I've learned that some folks take things far too seriously, and sometimes those folks have way too much time on their hands.
