Tuesday Question - 4/13/10

Generally, we are the "authors" of "content" around here - "here" being a blog and not a message board. Recognize, we do, that you've come here not to contribute, but to consume. Nevertheless, there is the sporadic occasion where, either for our benefit or for to exercise the thinkifiers of the masses, we ask you a question. Today's question is ...

What will you be looking for most in this weekend's Grove Bowl?

With the Grove Bowl set for a 1 p.m. kickoff this Saturday, spring practice will draw to a close.  We dropped some analysis on you a few days ago.  And there will be two more practices (on Thursday and Friday) before the "big" "game."  With a few players out, tempered expectations, and really nothing else going on this weekend (except for some of us), this Grove Bowl seems to lack some of the hype of previous spring games.  For my part, I wonder how much a spring game can really tell us about a football team.  I've never been to a spring game that made me rationally more optimistic for the upcoming season.

But I have real reason (this year, especially) to leave the spring game with a pessimism that vectors near Presbyterianism.  Our likely quarterback (/temporarily averts gaze from Nathan Stanley's mom to Nathan Stanley) will move slowly behind our inexperienced interior line, causing him to hurriedly throw to our sandstone-handed wide receivers.  That's what I'll be looking for.  And if any of those things don't happen, I'll probably be able to blame it on sub-standard pass rush, coverage, or tackling.

The point is that I cannot envision a scenario where I leave Vaught-Hemingway Stadium with a cheery disposition.  The best I can hope for is averting disaster (as in, "Oh, a first down.  That's kind of encouraging!").
