The Mocs were pretty balanced against App State. They ran the ball 32 times, and they threw the ball 35 times. But they produced only 270 yards of offense. Said head coach Russ Huesman,"I want to see a completely different offense this Saturday." The difference may be more running plays for the quarterback, which is what teams want from a spread offense. Said Huesman,"The bottom line is. Terrell and Jacob better get touches. When the ball is in their hands, they're our two best players with the ball in their hands."
The Mocs are now last in the SoCon in total offense and scoring offense. To improve those numbers, it sounds like the Mocs need to do one thing. Said offensive lineman Kevin Revis,"We weren't finishing. Offensive line. We've got to finish our blocks. We have to finish every play. That's the biggest thing for our team. We've got to finish. We weren't in a rhythm because we weren't finishing plays. We've just got to finish plays. Got to be finishing everything. We've got the play-makers to do it. Just got to finish."
Reporter-"Have the coaches been telling ya'll to finish this week?" Said Revis,"They have. That's just what keeps coming back into my mind from watching the film."
Chattanooga is also next to last in rushing offense in the SoCon. Keon Williams had the biggest run from a running back last week, and it was just 18-yards. Said Huesman,"I wasn't real thrilled with how our backs ran. As a matter of fact, I was extremely disappointed in a lot of the runs that happened out there. We've got to run the ball better."
To gain some offensive momentum, a big play score might help. Said Revis,"Big plays definitely get you going. Big plays stem from. Like I said, that's the common theme, finishing the blocks." UTC travels to the Citadel on Saturday for a 6pm kickoff.
