SUPER SCOUT EVALUATIONS
MY SUPER TOP TEN TEAMS
1. Alabama, 2. Oregon, 3. Clemson, 4. LSU, 5. Ohio State, 6. Stanford,
7. Louisville, 8. Oklahoma, 9. Texas A&M, 10. FSU
OFFENSIVE 400-YARD CLUB POW PLAYERS
1. QB Jared Goff – California – Goff was pretty incredible on Saturday as he completed 30 of 47 passes for 457-Yards with two touchdowns in the Golden Bears comeback 37-30 victory over a very good FCS Portland State Team and he did not throw any interceptions. This amazing True Freshman has already passed for 900-yards in his first two games this season.
2. QB Johnny Manziel – Texas A&M – Manziel looked like he was back to his “Normal Super-Star Status” as he completed 28 of 41 passes for 403-yards and three Touchdowns and then also ran for another 36-yards on six carries and scored on a six-yard Touchdown. Thus, giving the Reigning Heisman Trophy Winner 439-Yards of Total Offense in leading the Texas Aggies to a 65-28 victory over a pretty good Sam Houston State Team at Kyle Field in front of 86,600 screaming Aggies.
Manziel finished his day with the 6-yard touchdown run with about five minutes left in the third quarter. Manziel seemed to get annoyed at a defender who knocked the ball out of his hands after the Touchdown. Manziel let his focus on the game get away from him again, for a few seconds, but he handled himself much better this week than he did last week when he drew a flag for taunting and was benched in the fourth quarter.
3. QB Baker Mayfield – Texas Tech – Mayfield has got to be the biggest Surprise of the Year in College Football. Although the Red Raiders were playing Stephen F. Austin on Saturday, Baker, who is a Walkon-Freshman was still unbelievable as he completed 21 of 30 passes for 367-Yards and three Touchdowns. Baker also added another 66 yards on the ground, giving him 433-Yards of Total Offense. Baker could have easily recorded over 500-yards, but he did not play in the second half. Baker will be a lot more challenged next week against TCU in a Key Big-12 Game.
2013 COLLEGE FOOTBALL FABULOUS 15 QUARTERBACK POW PLAYERS
1. QB Teddy Bridgewater – Louisville – Bridgewater had his second great game for the Cards as he completed 23 of 52 passes for 397-Yards and four Touchdowns as the Cards beat Eastern Kentucky by a 44-7 score. Junior Bridgewater (6-3, 220) is in the Heisman Trophy Race and he he was outstanding again as he completed his first five passes of the game. Bridgewater threw Touchdown passes to Senior WR Damian Copeland (6-1, 190) and Junior TE Gerald Christian (6-3, 265) and two other Touchdown passes to Junior WR DeVante Parker (6-3, 205). In all, Bridgewater connected with eight different receivers.
2. QB Taysom Hill – BYU – Sophomore Athletic Quarterback Taysom Hill led a huge night and an unbelievable ground assault on the Texas Longhorn Defense as the Cougars UPSET the Longhorns by a 40-21 score n Provo. Hill (6-2, 220) ran the New Read-Option Offense that rolled-up 550-yards rushing in the victory. Hill rushed for an unbelievable 259-Yards and scored three Touchdowns as they beat Texas who was ranked as the #15 team in the country before the game. Hill also completed 9 of 26 passes for 129-yards, giving him 388-Yards of Total Offense.
The elusive Hill scored on runs of 68, 20 and 26 yards. His 68-yard run was the longest ever by a Cougars Quarterback, surpassing other distinguished BYU Quarterbacks such as Jim McMahon, Ty Detmer, and Steve Young. The 259-yards rushing by Hill was also the most Rushing Yards by a Quarterback since former Texas great Vince Young had 267-yards rushing in 2005. The Cougars broke their own 55-year team record in rushing yards and the 550-yards given-up by Texas is the most ever in Longhorn history. Hill scored on runs of 68, 20, and 26-yards. Sophomore Running Back Teammate Jamaal Williams (6-0, 195) also rushed for 182-yards in the victory. The 68-yard touchdown made the ESPE Sweet Sixteen Plays of the Week.
3. QB Devin Gardner – Michigan – Gardner was sensational on Saturday in the game against Notre Dame as he completed 21 of 33 passes for 294-yards and four Touchdowns while adding 82 more rushing yards for a 376 Total Offensive Yards as the Wolverines beat Notre Dame by a 41-30 score. Junior Gardner (6-4, 210) continued to take chances while rushing for the 82-yards and another touchdown on 13 carries. He threw one interception, but still showed great team leadership in throwing several passes away that kept the Wolverines from trouble.
Gardner wore #98 to honor Tom Harmon and he hit WR Drew Dileo of Baton Rouge Parkview Baptist with the winning four-yard Touchdown with a few minutes left in the game before an NCAA Record Crowd of 115,109 fans.
4. QB Ross Metheny – South Alabama – Metheny was pretty sensational as he completed 19 of 30 passes for 290-yards and two Touchdowns; plus he rushed eleven times for another 75-yards and another two Touchdowns. These totals gave Senior Metheny (6-3, 210) 365-Yards of Total Offense as South Alabama UPSET Tulane by a close 41-39 score. This huge victory for the Jaguars broke a seven-game losing streak. Metheny passed for 137-yards and had 63-yards rushing in the first quarter alone on his way to a Four-Touchdown First Half.
5. QB Travis Wilson – Utah – Wilson was pretty outstanding in his second consecutive start of the season as he lead the Utes to a dominating 70-7 victory over Weber State. On Saturday, Sophomore Wilson (6-6, 245, 4.8) completed 14 of 19 passes for 264-yards and three Touchdowns with no interceptions. Wilson also rushed for 93-yards on three carries and two more Touchdowns, including an incredible 51-yard Touchdown, giving him 357-Yards of Total Offense. The 80-Yard Touchdown from Wilson to Fitzgerald made the ESPE Sweet Sixteen Plays of the Week.
Ute Head Coach Kyle Whittingham hired Offensive Guru, Dennis Erickson, to work with the Utah No-Huddle Spread Offense and with Super-Star Wilson, this Offense is going to be unbelievably excited and an Offense that the Pac-10 Defenses are going to find very difficult to stop.
6. QB Bryce Petty – Baylor – Petty had the career-game of his life as he completed an amazing 13 of 16 passes for 338-Yards and two touchdowns in the 70-13 Victory over Buffalo in Waco. What was equally amazing for Junior Petty (6-3, 230) was that two other passes were caught, but ruled out of bounds. The Bears starting offense had eight Touchdowns in nine drives and the Bears finished the game with a Baylor School Record 781-yards. Petty also ran for another Touchdown. Petty had an unbelievable 300 Quarterback Rating in this game
7. QB J.W. Walsh – Oklahoma State – Walsh was back to his great self as he completed an amazing 24 of 27 passes for 326-yards and four Touchdowns. Walsh also rushed for another 12-yards , giving 338-Yards of Total Offense as the Cowboys beat a surprisingly strong University of Texas San Antonio team by a 56-35 score.
8. QB Garrett Gilbert – SMU – Gilbert was unbelievable on Saturday as he drove the Mustangs down the field with time running out and he threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to Darius Joseph with 12 seconds left to give SMU a 31-30 victory over Montana State on Saturday night, stunning the #3 Ranked FCS Team. After forcing a Montana State punt, SMU took over with 3:46 remaining on its own 19. Gilbert completed 35 of 48 passes for 317-Yards. The Mustangs took 14 plays to drive 81-yards for the win.
9. QB Nathan Scheelhaase – Illinois – Scheelhaase had another huge game for the second straight week, but this week, he was exceptional as he helped lead his Illini Team to a huge 45-17 victory over a very good Cincinnati Team. On Saturday, Senior Scheelhaase (6-3, 210) completed 26 of 37 passes for 312-Yards and four Touchdowns with no interceptions.
10. QB Maxwell Smith – Kentucky – Smith had an outstanding game on Saturday in leading the Wildcats to a 41-7 Victory over Miami of Ohio. Displaying some great accuracy, Sophomore Smith (6-4, 220) completed 15 of 23 passes for 310-Yards and three Touchdowns, which included three long Touchdown passes. Smith started his first game since an ankle injury last season after passing for 975-yards and eight Touchdowns before being injured. A Fast-Paced No-Huddle Offense was put in by New Head Coach Mark Stoops and Coach Stoops hired Offensive Genius Neal Brown who ran the Super Explosive Offenses at both Troy and Texas Tech. This game was Coach Stoops first win at Kentucky, but with this new Offense and Maxwell Smith, there are going to be a lot of happy Wildcat fans in the stands that won’t be waiting for Basketball to start.
11. QB Aaron Murray – Georgia – Murray had one of his best games of his career as he completed 17 of 23 passes for 309-Yards and Four Touchdowns as the Bulldogs came back from big loss to Clemson with a really big 41-30 victory over SEC South Carolina. Murray (6-1, 210) capped a brilliant game by getting away from Gamecock Defensive End Jadeveon Clowney and completing an 85-yard Touchdown Pass to Justin Scott-Walker, with 13 minutes left to end the scoring for both teams. The 85-Yard Touchdown made the ESPE Sweet Sixteen Plays of the Week.
12. QB C.J. Brown – Maryland – Brown had a tremendous game in the first game of the season against Florida International, but he came very close. Senior Brown (6-3, 210) completed 14 of 22 passes for 275-yards and two Touchdowns, including a 41-yard Touchdown pass to Sophomore WR Stefon Diggs. Brown also rushed for another 30-yards, including Touchdown runs of 31 and 5-yards, giving him 305-Yards of Total Offense in the 47-10 Victory over Ole Dominion. Brown had an amazing 198.6 Quarterback Rating in this game.
After two games, Brown has already recorded nine Touchdowns. A year ago, no Maryland Quarterback accounted for more than 11 Touchdowns all season. Diggs also had a career-best 179-yards receiving, and Running Back Brandon Ross ran for another 149-yards and a Touchdown.
13. QB Taylor Kelly – Arizona State – Kelly had an outstanding game on Saturday in a 55-0 victory against Sacramento State. Kelly was very accurate as he hit on 23 of 31 passes for 300-Yards and five Touchdowns and with no interceptions. In 2012, Junior Kelly (6-2, 205) was the PAC-10 most efficient Quarterback as he threw 29 Touchdowns and had a Quarterback Efficiency Rating of 159.88.
14. QB James Franklin – Missouri – Franklin was outstanding in the game on Saturday in a 38-23 Victory against Toledo. In that game, Senior Franklin (6-2, 230, 4.5) completed 16 of 25 passes for 212-Yards, including a nine-yard Touchdown Pass to Sophomore WR Dorial Green-Beckham at the end of the second quarter. Franklin also rushed the Football for another 77-Yards on 17 carries, giving him 289-Yards of Total Offense in the Victory. Franklin was very impressive in the second half on two consecutive scoring drives as the Tigers moved ahead to win. My good Friend and New Offensive Coordinator Josh Henson has done a great job with Franklin and the future looks great for both Franklin, Henson, and the Mizzou Tigers.
15. QB Zach Mettenberger – LSU – Mettenberger was pretty good in the first game of the season against TCU, but in the second game ahainst UAB, he had one of the most impressive games ever for an LSU Quarterback. In the UAB game, Mettenberger was almost flawless as he completed 16 of 19 passes for 282-Yards and an LSU School Record Five Touchdowns as the the Tigers won by a 56-17 score. Mettenberger also became the first LSU Quarterback to throw three Touchdowns in a half since JaMarcus Russell did it in the First Half against Mississippi State in 2006.
This impressive game by Mettenberger (6-5, 235) was a real boost to his NFL Draft Status. With the help of one of my Personal Friends and New LSU Offensive Coordinator, Coach Cam Cameron, the arm strength and accuracy of Mettenberger is much improved from last season. On a couple of his passes, he was uncanny with his accuracy and on one of his passes down the middle, he really demonstrated some great “Zip” on the football; plus he had an outstanding 189.9 Quarterback Rating. His NFL Stock might have moved him to be Drafted on the First Day of the Draft.
2013 COLLEGE FOOTBALL SUPER 16 BACKS & ENDS POW PLAYERS
1. AP Odell Beckham – LSU – Beckham was sensational on Saturday in the game with UAB as he accounted for an incredible 331 All-Purpose yards in the 56-17 victory. Beckham (6-0, 190, 4.4) caught 5 passes for 136-yards and three Touchdowns; scored on an amazing 100-yard Touchdown on a return of a missed Field Goal; had 15-yards on one reverse; returned 3 punts for 59-yards; and returned one kickoff for 21-yards, giving him 331-Yards of All-Purpose yards and four Touchdowns.
We wake-up on Monday Morning and find out that the NCAA does not have a Missed Field Goal Attempt For A Touchdown Category and so this incredible 109-Yard Return does not have a Category to put it in so the Official Explanation of the Return is Kick Return. If you look at the Game Highlight Film, you will see that Beckham ran 109-yards for the Touchdown, but Officially it was a 100-Yard Return. This 100-yard Touchdown Return made the ESPE Sweet Sixteen Plays of the Week.
2. AP Trey Watts – Tulsa – Watts had an outstanding game on Saturday in leading the Golden Hurricane to a 30-27 Victory. Senior Watts (5-11, 190) rushed for 152-Yards; caught eight passes for 58-yards; returned one kickoff for 15-yards; and returned five punts for 22-yards, giving him 247-Yards of Total Offense. Senior Watts (5-11, 190) rushed for 1,108-Yards as a Junior in 2012 as the Hurricanes finished ninth in the NCAA in rushing yards, while they averaged 245.7-yards per game.
3. AP Tramaine Thompson – Kansas State – Thompson had a Career-Game in the Wildcats victory over ULL. Thompson was sensational and the Wildcats needed it as they came back from a season opening loss to North Dakota State. In this game, Thompson (5-8, 170, 4,4) returned a kickoff 94-yards for a Touchdown; returned a 79-yard punt return down to the 1-yard line; and finished with 46-yards receiving; giving him 219-Yards of Total Offense. It’s hard to beat 219 All-purpose Yards and only Odell Beckham and Trey Watts might be better All-Purpose players.
4. WR Paul Richardson – Colorado – Richardson had another unbelievable game for the Buffs as he grabbed 11 balls for 209-Yards and scored two Touchdowns as Colorado beat Central Arkansas by a 38-24 score. The Colorado Buffs went 1-11 in the 2012 season, but they did not have Richardson. This year, with Richardson, the Buffs already are already 2-0 after two games.
5. RB Andre Williams – Boston College – Williams was outstanding as Boston College completely dominating the ground ground in their victory over Wake Forest. In the game on Saturday, Senior Williams (6-0, 220) rushed for 204-Yards on 35 carries and scored a Touchdown. Williams carried the football eight straight times on the last drive of the game to run out the clock and preserve the victory that gave the Eagles their second straight victory of the year after matching their two wins in a 2-10 season in 2012.
6. AP Stefon Diggs – Maryland – Diggs was a Freshman All-American and he has started off this season with more incredible stats. On Saturday, in the 47-10 Victory over Old Dominion, Diggs had a career-best game with six catches for 179-Yards and with a great 29.8 yards per catch average. This also included a great 41-yard Touchdown Catch from Quarterback C.J. Brown. Diggs also had two carries for another 12-yards, giving him 191 Yards of Total Offense.
7. AP Tevin King – Louisiana Tech – King was sensational on Saturday as he rushed for 182-yards on 20 carries and caught three passes for another eight-yards, giving him 190-Yards of Total Offense. My Friend and New Bulldogs Running Back Coach Jabbar Juluke is pretty exciting about his Red-Shirt Freshman Running Back King (5-7, 170, 4.4) and the great potential that he has. King rushed for 2,047-yards as a Senior at Moultrie Colquitt Co, Georgia as he lead his team to the Georgia 5A State Championship. King is Super Fast and Elusive and at 5-7, he is very difficult to see coming out of the backfield.
Coach Juluke was very excited and emotional in this 27-14 victory against Lamar, but think about how excited and emotional he will be on Friday night in New Orleans at Tad Gormley Stadium as he Scouts his Ex-Team Karr as they play against his Alma-Mater St Augustine. But before that big game, on Thursday against Tulane, Juluke will face two of his players that he coached at Karr; plus one of his best Coaching Friends, David Johnson, who Coached for him at Karr and is now at Tulane.
8. WR Tony Jones – Northwestern – Jones had an unbelievable game on Saturday against Syracuse. Junior Jones (6-0, 185) caught nine passes for 185-Yards and one Touchdown.
9. WR Jeremy Gallon – Michigan – Gallon had a career-game day, as he caught eight passes for 184-Yards and three Touchdowns as the Wolverines beat Notre Dame by a 41-30 score. It didn’t matter how well Gallon (5-8, 187) was covered, Quarterback Devin Gardner was able to complete the passes to him in the Clutch. “He’s like a little bulldog,” Gardner said of Gallon. “We’ve worked so hard since I got here and you guys are just now seeing it, but behind closed-doors we’ve been working very hard and we’re finally getting the opportunity to display it.”
10. RB Jamaal Williams – BYU – Sophomore Williams (6-0, 195) had a career-high game with 182-Yards rushing and three Touchdowns in the 40-21 UPSET Victory over The Texas Longhorns.
11. RB Alex Collins – Arkansas – Collins had a unbelievable “Break-Out” Game as he rushed for 172-Yards on 24 carries and scored one Touchdown as the Razorbacks beat Samford by a 31-21 score. The Razorbacks won a huge recruiting battle with Miami for the services of True Freshman Collins who was from South Plantation, Florida.
12. RB Ka’Deem Carey – Arizona – Carey was suspended for the first quarter on Saturday, but on his first carry in the second quarter, Carey raced 58-yards for a Touchdown. As his Wildcats beat UNLV by a 58-13 score, Junior Carey (5-10, 197) finished with 171-Yards on 16 carries and averaged an impressive 10.7 yards per carry.
13. RB Brennon Clay – Oklahoma – Clay had a career-high game against West Virginia as he rushed for 170-yards and the Sooners overcame a second-half quarterback switch to defeat the Mountaineers. The Sooners scored the final 16 points as they overcame a 7-0 West Virginia lead.
14. WR Mike Evans – Texas A&M – Evans had an outstanding first game of the season against Rice and followed that game with another outstanding game against Sam Houston State as he caught seven passes for 155-Yards as the Aggies beat Sam Houston by a 65-28 score. Sophomore Evans (6-5, 225) is a huge Wide Receiver who looks like a Tight End and is a huge target for Quarterback Johnny Manziel.
15. AP De’Anthony Thomas – Oregon – Thomas picked-up where he left off as a freshman and sophomore when he rushed for 124-yards; scored three Touchdowns; and averaged an incredible 11.3 yards per carry. Thomas (5-9, 176, 4.4) also caught one pass for 28-yards, giving him 152-Yards of Total Offense in the Victory.
16. RB Lache Seastrunk – Baylor – Seastrunk rushed for 150-Yards on 17 carries and scored three Touchdowns as the Bears beat Buffalo by a 70-13 score. The Bear starters scored eight of nine series and the Bears finished with a Baylor School Record 781 total yards. Junior Seastrunk (5-10, 210, 4.4) is another Heisman Trophy Candidate after Transferring from Oregon. Seastrunk is from nearby Temple, Texas, but he signed with Oregon coming out of High School, before he transferred two years ago. Seastrunk was a Super Combine Freak in 2009 and he is still one of the best Running Backs in the Country. In fact, Seastrunk is listed on the Heisman Trophy Watch. His Goal for the Season is to get 2,000 Rushing Yards and if he reaches his Goal, he’ll definitely be in the Heisman Race.
2013 COLLEGE FOOTBALL SPECIAL TERRIFIC TEN DEFENSIVE POW PLAYERS
College Super POW Rules
Must Win Your Game or Unless Two Teams in The Top 10 Are Playing!
1. OLB Denzel Perryman – Miami – Perryman had a Career-Best Game on Saturday in helping lead the Hurricanes to a huge 21-16 UPSET over the Florida Gators. Perryman recorded an amazing 14 tackles, including nine solo tackles and forced a fumble in the victory. In all, Miami forced three fumbles; picked off two passes; and sacked Florida Quarterback Jeff Driskel twice; holding The Gators to 2.8 yards per carry on the ground. This is an exceptional “Turn-Around” for a Miami Team that ranked last in the ACC in rushing in the 2012 season.
Junior Perryman (5-11, 240, 4.62) is a tremendously gifted athletic linebacker who played Middle Linebacker as a Sophomore in 2012, but moved to Weakside Linebacker before the start of his Junior season in 2013. Perryman is a very hard-hitting, quick linebacker who tries to make every tackle and this game moved his NFL Draft Stock up in the eyes of most NFL Scouts.
2. MLB Bryce Hager – Baylor – Hager (6-1, 235) was all over the field in the 52-24 UPSET victory last year over #1 Kansas State. Against Buffalo, last Saturday, Senior Hager picked up a fumble and raced 91-yards for a Touchdown in the 70-13 Victory. Hager had 124 tackles last season and only two on Saturday. That’s normally not enough tackles to make the Defensive MVP Team, but he makes the MVP Team, for his fabulous 91-yard fumble return for the Touchdown. Baylor Head Coach Art Briles said after the game that the Hager return was the nail in the coffin that the Bears needed.
3. CB Blake Countess – Michigan – Countess is coming off an ACL injury which kept in out of the 2012 season, but this Red-shirt Sophomore recorded two interceptions against Notre Dame, including one that sealed the victory for the Wolverines. Junior Countess (5-10, 185) also recorded three Solo Tackles and three Assisted Tackles to go with his two interceptions in the big win over the Irish. “I just happened to be in the right place at the right time to make a play,” said Countess after the game on Saturday.
4. CB Damante Horton – Washington State – Horton was outstanding on Saturday as he helped the Cougars UPSET USC by a 10-7 score. In fact, Horton (5-10, 180) recorded two Interceptions, including a 70-yard interception return for a Touchdown that gave the Cougars their only Touchdown in the Victory. It was the most memorable of the two Interceptions, one from each Trojan Quarterback. Senior Horton also had two tackles for a loss among his four total tackles.
5. DE Shilique Calhoun – Michigan State – Calhoun had another incredible game on Saturday in the 21-6 Victory over South Florida. In that game, Calhoun recovered a fumble and ran four-yards for a Touchdown. Then in the third quarter, Calhoun intercepted a pass and ran 56-yards for another Touchdown. Sophomore Calhoun (6-4, 248) has now scored three Touchdowns in the first two Spartan games of the season. This is highly unusual, but the most interesting thing is that the Michigan State Offense has only scored two Touchdowns in that same period.
6. FS Brian Randolph – Tennessee – Randolph had an outstanding Career-Best game on Saturday as he helped lead the Vols to a 52-20 victory over Western Kentucky. In that game, Sophomore Randolph (6-0, 200) recorded two Interceptions, had one pass breakup, and eight tackles.
7. DE Markus Golden – Missouri – Golden had a Career-Best Game when he Returned an unbelievable Interception 70-yards for a Touchdown. Golden received a real gift when the football squirted out of the hands of Toledo Quarterback Terrance Owens and into his arms and then he raced 70-yards for the Touchdown. This play gave the Tigers a 24-9 lead with 11:40 left in the third quarter as they went on to beat Toledo by a 38-23 score.
8. DE Ladarius Owens – Auburn – Owens was pretty sensational as he recorded eight tackles, including three solo and five assisted tackles; had one quarterback sack; and two other tackles for a loss in the 38-9 victory for the Tigers over Arkansas State. In the second quarter, Junior Owens (6-2, 250) also made another sensational play as he chased down the Quarterback and forced an incomplete pass on fourth down. This play killed a 14-play, 54-yard drive for the Red Wolves.
9. Nebraska Secondary – Nebraska – The Nebraska Secondary was pretty unbelievable as they continued to make huge plays in their 56-13 win over Southern Miss. Senior Cornerback Stanley Jean-Baptiste (6-3, 220) returned an interception 43-yards for a Touchdown less than two minutes into the game. Senior Cornerback Ciante Evans (5-11, 190) added two interceptions, and Junior Safety Corey Cooper (6-1, 210) also got his first career Interception. Junior Cornerback Josh Mitchell (5-11, 170) also was sensational as he recorded three tackles for loss. If you will notice! These are pretty big Defensive Backs in the Big-10. The Cornhuskers will need that kind of effort again next week against UCLA.
10. MLB Preston Brown – Louisville – Brown was outstanding on Saturday as he recorded Eight tackles, including seven solo tackles. Senior Brown (6-0, 257) also had two of the four Quarterback Sacks as the Cardinals beat Eastern Kentucky by a 44-7 score. Junior Defensive End Lorenzo Mauldin (6-4, 245) also had five tackles, including three solo tackles, a sack, and a pass-breakup. Junior Free Safety Calvin Pryor (6-2, 210) also had an interception as the Cards limited Eastern Kentucky to 76-yards of offense in the first half. The Cardinals wanted a shutout and weren’t happy about losing the shutout. Through the first three quarters, we pretty much had a shutout,” said Mauldin. “They ended up getting a score at the end of the second half.”
