Big road win for the Niners

2 posts in this topic

It hasn't been a great year so far, but we just put up 2 back to back impressive road victories against Mississippi State and Southern Illinois. Hopefully things are starting to click and we can build on this to right our season.

The back-to-back wins – Charlotte's first winning streak of the season – haven't come against slouches. Southern Illinois has lost seven home games since 2001 – two to the 49ers – and the Bulldogs (6-3) are the reigning SEC West champion.

It was definitely a rough start. Nobody stepped up to be a leader with the loss of Goldwire. People were trying to do too much rather than just letting the game come to them.

Our center Phil Jones is playing very well as is our point guard Dijuan Harris and Wing Anjuan Wilderness.

Early in the season Lutz tried to run a motion offense and a lot of junk defenses that the players just didn't really seem to understand. He has simplified the offense and defense before the SIU game and since then we've won two games in hostile environments (MSU was on a 10 game home winning streak and SIU had only lost 7 home games in their last 104 games).

Hopefully we can keep it up, our success really hinges on Senior Lamont Mack getting back to his last season self and our SG's hitting the three consistently. They've had flashes, but not shown consistency.

With two seemingly easy games coming up, we could be on a 4 game winning streak and back to 5-6 by the time we face Maryland. A road win against Maryland would be huge going into A-10 play. Unfortunately, losing so many games early in the season may have made an at large nearly impossible.

The team has talent, just lacks consistency. We lost by 1 to Clemson and the other five losses have been by less than 10 points combined I believe.

    • Yeah really dumb idea. Star players will be getting thrown out for incidental contact that the ref "misunderstands" as a helmet shot. The solution isn't adding more rules or "being stricter" so to say but enforcing the rules that are already established down the middle. Our games are evidence enough that the refs suck but damn I got tired watching other teams play and see the game decided on either bullshit flags or lack of flags. If anybody needs to be punished more it isn't the players but these POS refs the league can't get their heads noses out of the asses of. Always an excuse or some convoluted reason why the refs were right. I actually heard the announcers calling it out tons of these obvious blown calls and yet still the league stands behind the refs like idiots.
    • First I got to say, damn, people trying to instantly make us the most hated team in the league, even over the Patriots aren't they lol. With all the hate Cam already gets then add Kap even if briefly, oh lord I'd hate to picture it. Yeah that first play is what stands out to me the most. I'd expect even a rookie QB to make that read and throw the ball instead of handing it off. That drive ended up in a safety where as if he throws it to Torrey Smith it is easily a 1st down and possibly a TD as he only has to beat one man. I don't even see Kap look around any in that clip so even more so it feels like he gave it away that it was a run play and the Rams read it like a book. I don't feel like we need him nor do I feel like he is better than what we have. As for his protest, I didn't like what he was doing when he was kneeling but hey he had the right to do it. I personally think him putting his money where his mouth was, was a better way than just kneeling and I commend him for doing so. To be honest the 49'ers have said they would welcome him back. Let's not forget he would still be with them had he not voided his own contract. Somebody will sign him though I just don't see it as a starter which is what he clearly wanted to try and be by voiding with the 49'ers.
    • I feel like this is some kind of guilty admission lol and you should feel bad for voting for that Lunatic / traitor president of ours.    But guess what, you will get a chance to redeem yourself in 2020 with more information about the disgraced president  coming out every week.
