Only been going on for almost FOUR years.

BTW, been scouting the AAMU Bulldogs playing Morehouse in the HBC Hall of Fame game. The last few minutes have been the most exciting of the day. Even though Morehouse went ahead by 2 with less than a minute on the clock, AAMU went down the field and scored the winning TD with 3 seconds left. Bulldogs will win on 21 September 2019.

On the last play of the game, did a tired defense call for our corner back to run out of the flat and vacate that space for the running back to be wide open? He appeared to run to the goal lost by design. We got out coached. It isn’t unusual.

Seems a little more relative that in 2016 we finished 2nd in yards allowed per play, 2017 finished 1st, and 2018 finished 4th amongst SoCon teams using league games only.

We haven't played well, we haven't prepared well, bottom line.

Only 2 games, no conference match-ups, and admittedly too small of a sample to make definitive conclusions from, but as of right now, here is where we stand in the SoCon stats:

Passing Defense - Next to last, behind only VMI.
Rushing Defense - Dead Last.
Scoring Defense - Dead Last.
Total Defense - Dead Last.

The mighty Tenn Tech Offense ran through us like poop through a goose. IMO, we have players talented enough to make our defense one of the best in the conference. Many of our kids were offered by FBS programs, several were All-state, 247 Sports star decorated, and came from winning HS programs. We are not starting true freshmen and up to now I don't think that injuries are an issue. I don't want to hear the "young and inexperienced group" excuse either. I think all of the starters, and numerous back-ups have had many snaps in previous seasons. We have the same DC who has put good defenses on the field in the past, I do not know what our problem is, but we DO have one. Maybe we will see this turn around Saturday, and I for one sure hope so.
With a decent defense and our 2nd string QB starting, we still have possibilities for a good season, IMO.

I don't think I have made any excuses for the play so far. My point was, our HC and his philosophy/staff have produced on the defensive side of the ball at much higher level than the first 2 games have produced. I don't feel that Hatcher's Murray St defensive performance has anything to do with our current situation.

See below. You can’t buy that kind of Respect! Sad thing is, I agree with him. With Oladokun on the field, however, the offense has been deadly. We just need a defense.

SoCon Power Rankings Following Week 2:
1. Furman
2. Mercer
3. East Tennessee State
4. Chattanooga
5. The Citadel
6. Wofford
7. VMI
8. Samford
9. Western Carolina

This the performance of HCCH defense at Samford the last 6 quarters: 14 points allowed. 7 points scored. I don't pin the fake punt on the defense, FYI. BTW, Wofford scored 49 points Saturday.
