Although we lost this game, I do not think it is as bad as I know everyone will make it out to be....IMO this loss came down to just 5 crucial mistakes.
These are not necessarily in order,
no. 1 - Stalas fumble; The cats were driving and looked as if they were going to put up points but a helmet to his elbow carrying the ball caused him to fumble and we lost possession = points lost
no. 2 - Defensive penalties on an early series; the defense had two big penalties on one series that led directly to BC getting 7 points. first on I believe it was Knowlton for facemask, and then a DB had a pass interference penalty = BC touchdown
no. 3 - Bakari Grant's drop; again the cats were moving the ball, and this was the first time Burris stretched the field and had a wide open Grant that would have set them up into BC territory, but he dropped the ball. We gave the ball back to BC at a crucial point in the game when we could have turned things around = points lost
no. 4 - Special teams; could not contain or tackle at all this game and when Brown ran through them for 6 I knew they were in trouble = BC touchdown
no. 5 - Burris INT; he forced a ball into traffic, seconds after the lions just scored and this led again to another TD = BC touchdown
It was a good comeback but we fell short again. Offense and Defense played well enough to win the game but mistakes IMO cost us this game and as long as we tighten some things up (especially on special teams), then they should be able to limit the damage and get some wins!
