Lamar & Louisville Defense Turns Lucas Oil Into Windianapolis

 

I can finally breathe. We pull out a win vs a team we should’ve destroyed and it is all due to overconfidence imo. The things we did wrong are very fixable. They’ve been working all summer so why do they need to be fixed? You might say. Playing against another team is different from playing against your own in practice. I sat down to write this story and I was like crap, i am not good at breakdowns, that’s Mitch &JK thing. Since my entire team went to Indianapolis for the game & are probably passed out somewhere I decide to give it a shot. I would not call it a recap though but I will call it a summary. Here are my takeaways (Honorary Tax Boy) from tonight’s game…

  • Lamar picked up where he left off amassing 485 yards & 2TD
  • Center struggled hearing count but all in all not a bad night from the O-Line
  • You can work on the penalties we had, most were due to inexperience
  • There was no rushing game except from Lamar BUT he made the right decisions/reads on when to hand off or keep
  • Lamar’s accuracy looks improved
  • Special teams were a few blocks away from blowing this game open, that too can be worked on
  • 1-0 is 1-0
  • The Tax Boys came to collect on that a** tonight, Should’ve called them the IRS instead

  • Defense Wins Championships
  • Hopefully J’aire is out a week max and is back for Clemson
  • D-Line got little to no penetration (giggety) until Purdue fatigued, this needs to change
  • Need to secure the ball better. The turnovers were preventable and this game could’ve, should’ve been out of hand
  • STOP FAVORING US BY LARGE MARGINS VEGAS!!!
  • Dez is gonna be a star. They keep doubling Jaylen & Dez gonna make them pay…
  • For the love of God Louisville Twitter stop overreacting, that is what use to set us apart from uk fans. Use to…..
  • WR made a few erroes but looked like they were seeing the ball well and making effortless catches. As a former TE I like to see that.
  • We marched into a difficult city & Stadium for us to win in and turned Indianapolis into Windianapolis

That is all for my account of tonight’s game. Thanks for reading.
