Dave Doeren met with the media on Monday and previewed the upcoming game against Marshall. Here is the gist of what he said:
– A lot of respect for Doc Holliday (Marshall head coach)
– Wolfpack needs to run the ball more efficiently.
– Pack only came in at 2.5 ypc against SC. Must be better.
– Played two freshmen on front line. That hurt us. Must be better.
– Marshall is young, but have a 3-year starter at QB
– Their QB has thrown a TD in 22 straight games (longest streak in nation)
– TE Ryan Yurachek is on a lot of watch lists. Great player. Must stop him.
– They have a great kick returner. Returned 2 for TDs last week.
– Veteran staff who come from big time schools.
– Need to get ball to playmakers on offense.
– Must protect the football.
– Marshall takes pride in sudden-change defense
– Excited to come home to Raleigh
