Regarding Harrison’s first-ever rushing touchdown: “I thought the guys up front did a great job with the reverse.” You mention a few of those manufactured blocks. Josh Fryar was racing down the field while Gee Scott came around and established that edge. Marvin then took care of the rest.

Regarding Tommy Eichenberg, Lathan Ransom, and Jose Proctor’s current situation. Tommy’s tenure will be weekly. It isn’t enduring. But it’ll vary from week to week. It seems likely that we will see him again soon. Lathan’s longer duration. However, Proc is the same; we anticipate having him back here very soon.

“I believe that Julian Fleming is currently playing really well as well; the ball hasn’t quite gone his way a few times, but it will.”

Refeeding Marvin Harrison Jr. to increase his chances of winning the Heisman Trophy: “No, you can’t start to do that.” I’m aware that will come up in the discussion. However, the player with the most outstanding performance—not the one with the most stats—wins that award.

Regarding benching starters early: “We are aware of what lies ahead.” For the second half, Trey Henderson was not on the pitch. There was no play from Cade (Stover) in the second half. We only had a drive with Emeka (Egbuka) and Marve before we started bringing other guys in. It’s been quite the run forus, so it was beneficial to take those guys out of the game for a short while and reduce their numbers. since we are aware of our location here.

Regarding young players’ depth reps in the second half: “It’s competitive for them.” (The result) is unimportant. There is a chance here. They have earned the right to play on the pitch because they practise. They’re going to latch onto those repetitions now, and some guys did flash.

Regarding Kyle McCord: “He’s losing ground in the game. You are able to witness that. Not that everything is flawless all the time, either. It isn’t. But he plays at his best when his feet are planted firmly and he understands the game’s rhythm. Tonight, he threw some really nice balls.
