Here's some things I expect tomorrow:
- A lot of running of the football. Last season in the playoffs, Stony Brook pretty much ran the ball at will on Villanova. I expect them to try to do the same again.
- Fewer turnovers by Villanova. I have a hard time believing they're going to turn the ball over four or five times tomorrow.
- High intensity on defense and special teams. I assume that Villanova's team will be angry, and they will try to impose that on the Sea Wolves. This could be dangerous, but I think they will try to set a tone to the game in order to impose their will on them. I don't know how well it will work, but I expect blue helmets to be flying all over the field towards the ball.
- A better John Robertson. He has been decent, but not great in the first two games of the season. I expect that to change.
