The dukes controlled the first half, but the second half play calling was of concern and I think our young QB had some challenges. Would hope this is addressed and on defense we need to a better job vs. the run if we have any chance with Youngstown State.

The game hinged on two mistakes. Either one would have saved the game. First, a punter needs to be taught when to take a safety when the ball is mishandled in front of the goal line- DO NOT TRY TO FALL ON IT INSIDE THE FIVE YARD LINE..

The other, when the ball is stripped in the red zone from your own player, DO NOT TRY TO BE THE HERO AND SCOOP IT UP.... FALL ON IT TO KEEP THE SCORE.

This can and should hve been coached to the players.

I think the players have responsibility to know these things. I'm not why you're so sure that the Dukes' coaches didn't instruct both players. It's not as if the both players started playing football last year. I'm sure their high school coaches covered these topics as well. Hopefully they will learn from these mistakes.

Let me correct my typos! Here I go again:

Our young quarterback played just fine. He was let down by the play calling and a special teams coach that did not instruct the punter when to take the safety.

Let me preface this by saying I did not see the game.

Looking at the box score, specifically the 2nd half scoring, it suggests the flyers made some halftime adjustments that the Dukes could not answer.

Did anyone see the game? I find it hard to believe we were not the more talented team. What could have happened/not happened at halftime?

Dayton's defense adjusted and the Dukes had some questionable playcalls. Front seven were tight on the backs so they couldn't get going except for one long one, and they didn't really mix it up in the passing game at all to establish some breathing room.

Coversely, Bardo was getting free a little too easily, so he maintained his dual threat status... he's a better runner than a passer, but when he can run he's pretty comfortable having to throw. It's only when the run is unavailable that he makes most of his mistakes.
