On paper, the Eagles’ Week Four win was just what they needed: a 20-point blowout. But a subpar passing game, missed field goals, and two late-game turnovers raise some serious questions.
The Eagles entered the fourth quarter of Saturday’s game with a chance to pull off one of the biggest upsets in program history. Judging by the final score, you’d never know.
The Eagles never committed more than three turnovers in a single game all of last season. After Saturday’s game against Wake Forest, Anthony Brown and Co. won’t be able to say the same in 2017.
As soon as the news broke that redshirt freshman Anthony Brown was starting against Northern Illinois on Friday night, a new kind of Eagles football was born.
All his life, A.J. Dillon has played football like the guys in the 70s. From bodyweight workouts to north-south running, the freshman running back is as traditional as they get.
Every week of training camp, the stakes get higher. On Saturday, head coach Steve Addazio mimicked game conditions for the Eagles’ second scrimmage of the summer. And the competition didn’t disappoint.
After five days of training camp, the Eagles suited up for their first scrimmage of the summer. Similar to the Jay Memorial Spring Game, the offense stole the show.
