On the surface, Chattanooga's 35-0 victory over Glenville State seemed like a sterling offensive performance, but it was not good enough for the Mocs coaching staff.
"I think we left some points in the first half out there that we should have had. We did not punch it in a couple of times, we threw a pick down there one time and then another time we didn't convert on fourth down. We had opportunities probably could have been 35-0 at the half," coach Russ Huesman said.
The Mocs offense racked up 899 total yards in their last two games, but the yards haven't always translated to points, something the Mocs must overcome in conference play.
"We've got to get more points. If you are putting up those kind of numbers, you've got to get points. We got it down in the red zone twice against Jacksonville state maybe even more than that, the one time we fumble it the other time we miss a field goal. So we've got to score more points with the yards we are putting up."
"Just being more efficient on third down. Especially on fist down getting a good chunk of yards. When we get in the red zone we've got to score. Not just kick field goals we've got to convert," said Mocs tight end Faysal Shafaat.
Three yards and a cloud of dust won't cut it for the Blue and Gold. They expect to score, and score quickly.
"We can't just say alright we are going to go 12 plays, 14 plays 75 yards every time. The odds of you scoring aren't good, you have to have three plays 60 yards, five plays 75 yards. You have to have big plays in there, because if you just grind it, eventually you are going to make a mistake," Huesman added.
Big plays begin with getting the ball to Terrell Robinson, early and often.
"I think Terrell is a big play threat no matter where he goes. I think he can make something happen and make some big chunks of yardage. So we need to keep finding ways to get him the ball."
