Kid is going to be special. That is all.
I saw Mahoney a lot more than 65. I'm pretty sure Gaynor was having some issues today. The old instantly got better when 62 came in. I do love Gaynor though.
Gaynor's problem is not totally strength as in HS put up a 365 bench and 500 squat and I imagine those numbers have gone up since at the U. He is very aggressive and sometimes can be used against him also his bodyweight is listed at 285 (he may be lighter and looks smaller on the field than the others)which is a little light for the O-line in this era.I think first drive.. like first play 65 had issues with their dt, he was in rosiers lap.. affected his throw.. sure coaches saw that and made adjustment..
Kid is a player but might not have strength yet for acc play.. need a off-season of grinding in weight room
Gaynor did get worked that first play. Mahoney played well as a replacement which was nice to see. We seem to have some depth on the interior but nothing on the outside. What are we going to do at LT/RT next year?Gaynor got knocked back into Rosier on first play but didn't get pulled early. He started the second half and was there on two scoring drives. (TD pass to Homer before half and long pass to Thomas).
Don't know if Searels stayed with hot hand in 4th quarter (Mahoney made nice block on Homer TD run) or if Gaynor was hurt. Thought both guys did their jobs upon rewatch.
F/U based on quick review of tape:
