Yep, the Hogs won. That is truly the key stat…as well as covering the spread.
But, my “key stat” is Ty Storey leading the SEC in passing efficiency after game 1 (with a gaudy 257.8), and #2 in the nation. Sure the Hogs played a rent-a-win opponent, but so did several other SEC teams.
I’ll also note that I did not previously think that Ty was capable of leading the Hogs. I was very mistaken.
I agree on all front of this post and topic and replies. Let’s see how much we improve week one to week 2. We will not force 5 turnovers very often and cannot rely on that every week for sure. I also felt confident in they way CCM managed the game clock.
For the first one out of the gate I felt the staff managed the clock and made adjustments very well. Here’s to the team gaining confidence and showing improvement from game-to-game and keeping the recruiting momentum on the high side. A few more throws to the tight end in the next few games would help with Mr. Henry also.
