Grading the cougars: C-


Quarterback: C

Lopina’s first start had some high points, but the turnovers have to go.

Running backs: C-

When the holes were there, they hit them hard. But there weren’t that many.

Wide receivers: B

Gibson may rate an A, which carries the rest of the group.

Offensive line: D

Too many guys are injured or playing hurt. This unit just needs a good doctor.

Defensive line: D+

The lack of containment can be laid here.

Linebackers: C-

For a senior group, there were too many missed tackles and bad angles.

Defensive backs: C+

The coverage, for the most part, was good. The tackling wasn’t.

Special teams: B+

The best unit, from Forrest’s punting to a 50-yard return to open the game.

Coaching C:

The offense has potential. The defense is struggling.
