Big-Play Passing Game Was Lacking Without Sammy Watkins (Orange and White)

Two games into year two of the system, Chad Morris’ offense is looking pretty good. The Tigers are ahead of 2011 averages at this point in total yards (527 to 472), passing yards (290 to 266), rushing yards (237 to 206), and plays per game (85.5 to 70) among more categories.

I am that really optimistic fan most people are but try really hard to ignore when walking out onto the Vegas Strip. I pick the Steelers to go 16-0 every season, have waited for the Pirates to go .500 for the last 19 years, and wrote this about the Orange last season.
