First home conference game, I hope the boys are ready. TSU played Vandy tight last week. I believe they are going to give everything they have for Christion Abercrombie. Continuing to pray for him and that he will recover quickly!! Praying for the TSU teammates, coaches, friends, and family as well.
I hate to say it, but I am afraid the Govs may fall to 0-3 in conference in a tight game. TSU scores a TD late in the game and win, 38-34
What a night that was. Sellout crowd with standing room only and they even had to turn people away. Never in my life would I have ever imagined that. I was worried the whole game that somehow they would find a way to lose this game but they didn’t and they got a big win in front of a big crowd. Now they need to get a big win on the road @semo next weekend and come back home for homecoming to get another crowd like that for Tech.
And for the ones that weren’t there and before anyone asks, yes TSU brought a good amount of fans plus the band. Take them out and it’s still over 10k. This is what administration wanted when they started putting money into this program. A good football team and a sell out crowd. We can call ourselves a basketball school all we want but it’s simply not the case. We can’t even get a 1/4 of people that were there last night to a basketball game. Football will always bring in more people and more revenue. If the product on the field is consistently good and winning, we can have crowds like that every home game. I’m not knocking the basketball program at all (if anything I’m criticizing the city of Clarksville) because if you know me, I hardly miss a game and I don’t show favoritism towards anyone or any program in particular.
As far as the game goes, a lot better team than the one I saw in Martin a couple weeks ago. A LOT better. I believe what we saw last night is the team we were expecting to see going into the season. TSU has a hard time stopping the run and the Govs exposed their defense all night long. Defensively I thought they looked pretty good as well, especially the secondary despite the 34 points TSU scored. And while I thought they played well, they’ll have to step up against SEMO this week who just put a 70 spot on Tech last night.
Good night all around and props to both teams for meeting at midfield before the game to pray for Christian Abercrombie. I was hoping they would do something before or after the game and then TSU’s band was awesome as usual. Let’s just hope all the residents of Clarksville that showed up last night will be back in two weeks.
Let’s Go Peay
