Thank you @Harry. We seemed to tackle better this last game, but tackling has gotten worse all around. We complain, rightfully so, but man, are there a lot of teams having problems. I'm not sure if it is due to how they have changed practice rules or if too many of these players are more concerned with making highlight-reel tackles. Hopefully, the off week is filled with back-to-basic tackling drills.

I blame part of this on the current rules.  Kropp wrapped up the La Tech QB with a form tackle and was flagged for roughing the passer.  They need to put skirts on the QB's.

    • This is really cool considering that we're located in a significant zone and it will be happening during the game. To your question, I don't recall any major sports activity experiencing a > 80% eclipse.  I'm sure it's happened, but probably pretty rare. Note: This is the last annular solar eclipse that will be visible from the United States until June 21, 2039. Here's an animation of the affects/times for the entire Earth. https://science.nasa.gov/eclipses/future-eclipses/eclipse-2023/
    • The practice facility wasn't an issue getting Perry to NT.   Obviously it attracted you to NT also...
    • The odds line has went from Navy -5 to -6 points for our game. Navy hosted USF last weekend.  Navy controlled the clock 31 min to 29 min (expected with a running offense).  Navy rushed 48 times for 254 yds.  USF 44 times for only 135 yards.  However, Navy only passed 11 times for 90 yards, compared to USF passing 34 times for 338 yards.  In summary Navy had 59 plays to USF's 78 plays.  USF won 44-30. Navy will get their yards rushing, but we have to get a lot more passing!
    • Last 2 games against inferior schools (Dallas Adamson  & Dallas Spruce), Kerry had a 75 yard pick 6 (Adamson) and a 77 yard pick 6 against Spruce. Their overall secondary got off to a shaky start of the season but is improving. 
    • I had a great time as I usually do.  Some great observations made in this thread.  I drive right at 2 hours to the games, so I got a head start on the drive home and didn’t stay for the drone show.  I wanted to, but I knew I could be about halfway home by the time it ended.  Glad to hear it was worth staying for though.  Next time I might choose to stay. Minor complaint:  Why can’t the NE scoreboard show more scores?  It kept showing the same 9 scores over and over.  I’ve noticed in the past they don’t show a lot of scores, but never realized it was so few.  I don’t want scores constantly running, but maybe during a timeout run through 20-30 different games.
