Doesn’t matter who starts at quarterback for Coastal Carolina against Army Saturday.
Whether it was going to be Grayson McCall, Jarrett Guest or Ethan Vasko, Army defensive coordinator Nate Woody and his unit expected to have a daunting challenge ahead.
McCall, the reigning Sun Belt player of the year, is out for this game but Vasko has stepped in his two starts pushing Coastal’s winning streak to five games.
No matter who is taking the snaps, Coastal (7-3) has played complimentary football on offense with a deep running game and game-breaking receivers Sam Pinckney and Jared Brown.
Army is a 3-point home underdog on Senior Day. The Black Knights finished last season on a three-game winning streak. They can match that with victory over Coastal.
Sal Interdonato (Black Knight Nation): Coastal Carolina 28, Army 20. Can Army’s offense keep pace with Coastal Carolina? Can the Black Knights’ offense find a consistent rhythm and reach the end zone at least three times? If the answer is yes to the second question, then, this game goes down to wire. If not, the Chanticleers will spoil Senior Day for the Black Knights.
Seth Mendelson (Black Knight Nation): Army 28, Coastal Carolina 25. Coastal Carolina comes to Michie Stadium riding a five-game winning streak with an offense running very smoothly. Army comes in looking for more respect.
Brendan in Jersey: Of course, I’d love for Army to win this game, and they have the ability to, but it would pale in comparison with a ‘W’ in Foxboro in a few weeks. More than anything, I’d like to see (Bryson) Daily be more “JUST” Bryson and really be a No. 1 operator out there, distributing the ball through the give, the pitch and the pass. To put it simply, I want to see the real Drew Thatcher offense our there for the first time since UTSA.
