Dave Clawson has concerns about young and inexperienced team

Bowling Green head coach Dave Clawson felt it was very important to get a lot of scrimmage work in during August camp in order to help a young and inexperienced team.

Following Saturday’s scrimmage, Clawson met with reporters.

Clawson said, “Just the sense of urgency getting line up (is a concern). The big thing we have to stress on is game tempo.” 

“I think on defense, it’s just playing with more consistency. I just don’t know if we’re always playing with the same level of intensity to go through a twelve-game season.”

“I believe you can introduce an opponent too early. If you introduce it 2 weeks out, then it’s three days before the game and they (players) are tired of it. About next Friday, we’ll get an extra two or three days on Troy.”
