Some Observations

We were exhausted by the end of the season and it showed on multiple fronts. Way too many minutes for Conrad, Aitken and Conners. To stay fast pace we need more horses in the mid field. Having Howard injured most of the season didn't help.

Not sure if it is a product of fatigue but our passing is not nearly sharp enough, way too many at the feet or floaters which allow the defense time to react and or cause turnovers. Zed was the only one I saw consistently putting passes in the box.

Other then a few stretches, I thought the defense was lost. I thought our 1v1 defense was pretty solid, but we just did not work well together as a team. Maybe its too new, too complicated, or Thompson is not comfortable being the general. It look to me as the season went on we got tentative, like we were unsure and it cost us a lot of ground balls. I thought Thompson was starting to look pretty strong in the cage but he has way too many stops turn into rebounds in front of the cage.

I thought Lars post game comments were encouraging in accepting responsibility and recognizing big improvements need to be made. It will be interesting to see how they come out and perform against Penn.
