    Default Wayne State Spring game

    Did not see the Wayne State spring game. Anybody have any info as to how things look?

    Disappointed that there wasn't any kind of recap on the website.

    I saw bits and pieces of it, nothing really new to report. The RB's looked good, the OL left a lot to be desired especially in pass pro, and the QB play was mediocre. Defense was OK but I think it is more a product of the offense lagging in concepts at this point in the off-season. Also have to report, the defense literally had 2-3 personal foul penalties in the SPRING GAME, majority of them late hits way out of bounds! Not sure how that happens in the spring game, let alone against your own teammates.

    Thanks New Era. Sorry to hear about no notable QB play. Out of state and couldn't go. Sounds like I did not miss anything. Weird with hitting out of bounds during the spring game. Figured we would have probably six good runners this year. Maybe we will need more with that style of play when the preseason starts up.

    If we can keep a solid rotation of RBs with a guy or two that stand out, that will hopefully make up for mediocre/average QB play. I felt DJ was exposed as a poor passer in 2017 when the run game dropped off from 2016. The issue is, I'm not sure that there is a QB (that we've seen) that will be above average this year. Penalties feel like a carryover from last year. Not an excuse, but those were likely due to frustration. No reason for that now, though. I hope this take changes after September 5, but I'm not convinced this team will get above .500 this year.

    New linebacker coach. This will be interesting. OLB should be set with veterans. MLB will be a battle. The true freshman coming in from Wisconsin sounds like a terror but not MLB size. But as it has shown for the last 50 years, until we get a true leader QB we will probably be as mtsax suggests mediocre at best. Depth has always been an issue at Wayne State(excluding the 2011 team) and having moved from the area know nothing about this years depth. In the old days you could attend the spring games and get an idea. After reading others on this board, sounds like this is a league, if not bigger trend.

    Being a die hard Tarter/Warrior fan I will continue with renewed annual optimism. With this promising basketball venue being built at WSU for us and the Pistons organization, Im sure there is an envisioned upgrade to the basketball program at WSU. That would be great but I hope it doesn't come at the expense of the football program.
