Week 7 college football sees the Eagles and Jaguars meet at Ladd-Peebles Stadium.
The Eagles fell to 2 – 4 after a late field goal from Troy ripped out their hearts ending a valiant comeback attempt, 27 – 24. The Trojans jumped out to a 24 – 3 lead early in the second half and the defense stepped up keeping them scoreless the rest of the way.
However, Justin Tomlin threw 3 huge interceptions and the run game only produced 82 yards also contributing to the loss.
The Jags find themselves favored by a field goal although they are 0 – 7 in 7 attempts to beat this Eagles program. The last two meetings between them have come down to the final possession and we might see another version of that on Thursday night.
South Alabama got off to a 3 – 0 start to the 2021 campaign but two straight losses to open Sun Belt Conference play already has them behind the 8-ball. Another loss combined with trips to Troy and Appalachian State on the schedule could lead to one disaster of a second-half of the season.
The Jags are favored by 3 points in this Sun Belt Conference matchup.
Georgia Southern Eagles
I have had the pleasure of covering about 4 of the Eagles’ games this season and they make it easy for us to know what is coming. Gotta run, gotta run, gotta run run run!
The problem becomes how well you do it, however, and this team may be ranked 6th in rushing yards per game but that all really came from two affairs. This offense plowed over Arkansas State and Gardner Webb and then the rest of the season has happened. Running game? Troy pretty much told Georgia Southern to take your running game and stick it where the sun doesn’t shine!
Hmm hmm, he said that, because this offense is a disaster, and being a field-goal dog is almost hysterical in this spot. I get that South Alabama isn’t all that and a bag of chips, but if this running game is the go-to? Not impressive!
Every time Tomlin handed the ball off, or if he took off on his own, you could just see for your own eyes that this offense needs work. Do you watch games? Put on the tape of the loss to Troy last weekend and get back to me! Listen, I get this is a week-to-week sport and things can change on a dime, but certain things you can simply just see why a team struggles or excels in certain aspects of the game.
This team is about to get whacked on the road and the +3 IMO has a zero chance of happening!
South Alabama Jaguars
Things were going smoothly for head coach Kane Wommack after a 3 – 0 start to his first season in Mobile. Dragging over Major Applewhite and Corey Batoon was supposed to be a key factor in not only getting players to commit here but in this year’s success as well.
At 0 – 2, as Sun Belt Conference begins, this game just became huge for this team although the line setters see them getting back on track. By the same token, being favored against a team you have never found a win against might be a concern for some of us bettors out here.
A pair of 2-point losses to Louisiana and Texas State is certainly nothing to cry about because the team was in the game until the final drive each time. We all know an L is an L and L’s could start to mount up with the schedule in front of this team.
Last weekend’s loss to Texas State will certainly sting a bit more being that it went into 4 overtimes and amounted to a 33 – 31 defeat.
Jake Bentley completed 19 of his 26 pass attempts on the afternoon and he got the Jags up 17 – 10 as the 4th quarter got underway. Bentley has spent a lot of time on his ass being sacked 8 times and he’s thrown 2 balls to the wrong team this season as well.
Coach Wommack better have everyone who handles a ball walking around with a football in their hands this week on campus! The Jags put the ball on the ground 3 times on top of the 1 pick from Bentley and that usually doesn’t amount to winning games. Fumbles can simply ruin your attitude, your chances to win, and it also leads to benching so Mr. Phillips, Hill, and, Lacy better get their sh!t together and quick!
When you rank 124th out of 130 teams in turnovers? HELLO HOUSTON! We have a problem!
This offense really hasn’t produced much to talk about either as it sits near 100th in nearly every major category. The Jags sit 91st in rushing yards per game (135.2), are ranked 97th in total yards a game (358.4), and their 26 PPG is good for 85th in the country.
Oh, but if you need me to mention the def… wait, nope, we don’t use the words defense and this team in the same sentence. Again, there are 130 FBS programs, right?
Quiz for you to take today:
What team is ranked 130th defending the pass?
What team is ranked 126th in total yards allowed giving up 486 an outing?
How did you do? Good! Now go make the damn bet!
