Believe it or not, the 12-10 score and the half and the 55 point win is probably a very positive thing. Every season there is a highly ranked team that stinks up the first half against a light weight opponent then blows them out in the second half. Check it out. Always happens. The fact that the team can “muscle up” in the second half is very telling about the ability of the team to play once circumstances force it to “focus.”
So, although puzzling I think the Norfolk State win is perfectly OK. Don’t write the Mountaineers off.
