Georgia Southern vs Coastal Carolina Game Preview

Why Georgia Southern Will Win

The passing game got it back.

This isn’t the old Georgia Southern offense you’re used to. Gone are the days of the spread option running game, and in is a passing attack that uses some of the same principles, but can wing it around the yard.

The offense is 3-0 when hitting the 300-yard mark – getting to 310 passing yards last week in the win over Ball State – and the turnovers stopped.

Coastal Carolina might be playing well, but the pass defense can be thrown on. Georgia Southern is among the best in the nation in total offense – it leads the Sun Belt – and is great on third downs partly because of a good season so far from the line. But …

NFL Expert Picks, Week 4

Why Coastal Carolina Will Win

Coastal Carolina can still make teams play its style.

This might not be the high-octane team of previous years, but it’s efficient, it’s still good at getting guys in space, and it’s also getting great line play.

It’s got the ability to weather the storm whenever the Georgia Southern passing game gets working, and it’ll control the clock and tempo throughout, but it’ll pull this off because …

What’s Going To Happen

Turnovers.

Yeah, the Eagles didn’t give the ball away against Ball State last week, but it only has one takeaway over the last three games.

Coastal Carolina leads the nation in takeaways with 14, getting 13 of them over the last three games. It’ll come up with a few, the offense will control things enough to make Georgia Southern press, and then more big defensive plays will follow.

Coastal Carolina vs Georgia State Game Preview

Why Coastal Carolina Will Win

Where’s it all going wrong for Georgia State?

This is a veteran team that was supposed to be solid. Losing to South Carolina and North Carolina weren’t any big deal, but dropping the 42-41 home game to a struggling Charlotte squad was disastrous.

The Panthers are rolling up the yards, but they’re not playing a lick of defense, there hasn’t been a penalty they don’t seem to enjoy committing, and …

Time of possession. If you can’t control the clock, you can’t get by Coastal Carolina. Ask Army how that works.

Georgia State is holding the ball for just over 25 minutes per game. That equals death against a Coastal Carolina offense that rolls when it’s able to hit the third down conversions. However …

CFN Expert Picks, Week 4

Why Georgia State Will Win

The Chanticleers are scuffling a bit.

They shocked Army 38-28 to open the season, but needed everything in the bag to get by Gardner-Webb and last week had to work too much to get by Buffalo. And what’s been the big problem?

Turnovers. The defense has forced nine over the last two games, but the six given away made life difficult.

Gardner-Webb threw at will, Buffalo was able to stay alive on the takeaways, and Georgia State needs all of that.

The Panther ground game has been fantastic, the big plays were there, and …

Week 4 Schedule, Predictions, Game Preview

What’s Going To Happen

Coastal Carolina is just too efficient.

As rough as things have been over the 3-0 start, the Chanticleer run defense – even against Army – has been outstanding.

That’s good, but Grayson McCall and the passing game continue to be among the nation’s most effective, and the Panther secondary hasn’t appreciably improved since getting hit for over 400 yards and five touchdowns by Charlotte’s Chris Reynolds last week.

This is going to be a wild, fun game to get the college football weekend going.

Buffalo vs Coastal Carolina Game Preview

Why Buffalo Will Win

The Bulls might be struggling to start the season – there are forces against you when when you lose at home to Holy Cross on a Hail Mary – but the passing game worked last week, the team has yet to turn the ball over, and it’s got the makeup to do a whole lot more with the running game.

Coastal Carolina is getting lit up through the air – Army was able to go off on the Chanticleer secondary … ARMY – and it took five takeaways to save the team in a shootout against Gardner-Webb.

Just don’t make a slew of big mistakes, grind the running game, and see what happens.

CFN Expert Picks, Week 3

Why Coastal Carolina Will Win

Coastal Carolina is controlling the clock.

It was able to beat Army at its own game by owning the pace, and Grayson McCall and the passing game were great last week keeping up with Gardner-Webb.

The special teams have been great, the offense is efficient, and overall, the team should be able to dominate the tempo and keep the UB O off the field.

Week 3 Schedule, Predictions, Game Preview

What’s Going To Happen

The Gardner-Webb game was a tad disturbing, but Coastal Carolina will be more balanced this week, the ground game will start working again, and Buffalo will sputter a bit too often to keep it close.

Coastal Carolina vs Gardner-Webb Game Preview

Why Gardner-Webb Will Win

The Bulldogs rolled at will early on against the Saints of Limestone on the way to a 56-21 win. The ground game ran for over 400 yards, ad passing attack took target practice, and most importantly considering what’s up next, the team held on to the ball.

You HAVE to control the clock against Coastal Carolina, and Gardner-Webb was among the best in the nation at that. It had the ball for over 36 minutes last week, and it’s going to try grinding things down to a stop in Conway.

CFN Expert Picks, Week 2

Why Coastal Carolina Will Win

The Chanticleers were brilliant in the win over Army.

They might be replacing a slew of key parts from 2021, but they were able to beat the Knights at their own ball control game.

One of the best teams in America at owning the time of possession battle, Coastal Carolina will keep things moving, it’ll handle the Gardner-Webb running game just fine, and the offense will find a good balance right away.

Week 2 Schedule, Predictions, Game Preview

What’s Going To Happen

If you can hold up against the Army running game, you can do just fine against the Gardner-Webb rushing attack. Coastal Carolina will get out to a hot start and then crank up the clock from there.

Sun Belt Preseason Predictions For Every Game: Preview 2022

Sun Belt predictions for every team and every game in the 2022 college football season

The Sun Belt just got a whole lot more interesting with the addition of Marshall, Old Dominion, and Southern Miss from Conference USA – and getting them a year before it seemed possible – and also brought in FCS powerhouse James Madison to a be a part of the fun.

The divisions are staying for now, but the great additions will make it far, far tougher for Appalachian State, Coastal Carolina, and Louisiana to keep on dominating – even though they might not take that big a step back, if any.

While it might seem a bit cut-and-dry with the way the league is set up, watch out for some potentially big moves from some teams that struggled. The problem will be the schedules for Troy, South Alabama, and Arkansas State. Georgia State and Old Dominion programs that got to bowl games last season will have to fight, too.

The Sun Belt is stronger than ever and the season should be the best yet. The Sun Belt predictions for 2022 are …

Coastal Carolina Chanticleers Preview 2022

And now the real work begins.

Coastal Carolina proved the 2020 breakthrough season wasn’t a fluke with a fantastic 11-2 run that might have fallen short of a Sun Belt title, but was still impressive.

Not only did the Chanticleers keep it all going, and not only did they win a bowl game, but those two losses came by a grand total of five points.

That was amazing, but now the Sun Belt is stronger, Coastal Carolina is a circle game on the schedule, and there’s a whole lot of experience and talent to replace on both sides of the ball.

Head coach Jamey Chadwell has the right offensive system, and he’s got the quarterback in Grayson McCall. Other than that, the program has as big a rebuild as any in college football.

It might be a fight to come close to the success of the last two years, but with McCall, and with the systems in place, Coastal Carolina might still be one of the stars of the Sun Belt.

Coastal Carolina Chanticleers Preview 2022: Offense

Grayson McCall might not have been the pro prospect many are/were projecting, but his decision to return for another year means the high-powered offense has its guy to make all the new guys better.

Coastal Carolina led the nation in third down conversions and passing efficiency, and was fifth overall averaging 495 yards per game. The downfield plays should still be there, and the running game will still bust off big plays with the big holes the offense creates. But it all comes down to McCall. As long as he’s running the show, the O will work. But …

Who will McCall throw to? Leading receiver Jaivon Heiligh is done, and TE Isaiah Likely is about to be a factor for the Baltimore Ravens. RB Braydon Bennett is the leading returning receiver with 24 grabs. but no one else returning caught more than six passes.

The offensive line should be a positive with some time. All-star guard Willie Lampkin is the anchor, and the good depth of last year should be able to take over right away – these guys know the system. 1,040-yard rusher Shermari Jones is done, but Bennett can handle a bigger role and speedy Reese White ran for 515 yards last season.

Coastal Carolina Chanticleers Preview 2022: Defense

The offense gets all the headlines and love, but the Coastal Carolina defense has done its part, too. It allowed fewer yards per play than the 2020 version, it gave up more than 25 points just four times, and held teams to under 100 rushing yards five times in the last ten games.

But like the offense, there are wholesale changes with the back seven gutted. However …

The line is okay, even with the loss of star DT CJ Brewer. Josaiah Stewart had a huge freshman season with 12.5 sacks, there’s size on the inside with 345-pound Jerrold Clark on the nose, and overall there shouldn’t be a big step back in production. But …

Just about every key tackler from the linebacking corps is gone. The group isn’t totally starting from scratch – a few guys who saw time last year are around – but this will be one of the team’s biggest areas of early concern.

D’Jordan Strong is one of the Sun Belt’s best all-around corners. He’s back along with three good backups from last year who should be able to step up and produce without a problem.

Ravens TE Isaiah Likely discusses nerves before first preseason game

Ravens rookie tight end Isaiah Likely talks about his nerves before his first preseason game

The Baltimore Ravens drafted tight end Isaiah Likely in the fourth round of the 2022 NFL Draft.  Since the start of training camp, players, coaches, and members of the media have been raving about Likely’s play, which has built up a lot of excitement surrounding the rookie.

In the first preseason game in Likely’s career, you would’ve thought since he’s been playing football since four-years old that he wouldn’t be nervous, but that wasn’t the case before the game. Likely spoke to the media after the game on his nerves before the game and he said

“I probably had a jitter or two pregame, because you look around and the stadium fits about 71,000. So, I came from Coastal (Carolina) where you sit 24,000. So, you just have to look around, really smile, get a jitter out and you have to realize that it’s football.”

In his first preseason game, Likely had four receptions for 44 yards, showcasing his pass catching ability and athleticism. He had a couple of major highlight plays, including a juke and a contested catch, both of which made waves. It was a successful debut for the rookie, who will play alongside Mark Andrews, Nick Boyle and Charlie Kolar in Baltimore’s tight end room.

Ahead of Tennessee’s Super Regional matchup with Notre Dame, Vols’ head coach Tony Vitello was asked about staying even-keeled at this point in the season.

Vitello referenced Beaird and Coastal Carolina’s national championship team in 2016.

“I think we’re past it, at least I am,” Vitello said during a press conference ahead of playing Notre Dame. “I don’t sense from the players differently, but you got too, about halfway through the year, somewhere a little bit deeper and in our league it’s, ‘Does it matter and whoever has it, how long are they going to hold onto that hot potato?’ There’s probably going to be another team in the league that picks it up. That’s just the way it’s going to go every year. Fortunately, our guys played well down the stretch. Everyone loves to point out the blip on the radar screen in Kentucky, but we spoke to our players in the outfield and we told them that weekend was going to serve them well. I feel like it has contributed to the topic we’re talking about right now. We’ve been able to stay at the forefront there.

“We talked about hosting and playing in front of your fans, that’s really what you want. After that, it doesn’t matter. It certainly feels good to play in front of our fans. It’s a goal of ours each year. We’ve got a man from Coastal Carolina in Matthew Beaird, who was the catcher on Coastal Carolina’s national championship team. If you follow that route, it was clearly not conventional. This is not a conventional tournament and these are not conventional or normal teams at this point. They are all teams that can do great things. It’s going to be hell from pitch one until the last pitch, from the start of the series until the end of the series. That’s not just here, but across the country. Embrace it and certainly enjoy it. I am grateful that our fans get to see it in-person.”

During Coastal Carolina’s national championship season in 2016, Beaird played in 59 games, starting 46 contests as the Chanticleers’ primary catcher.

Beaird threw out a school record 46 base stealers during his collegiate career (46-of-107). Beaird finished his career ranked second in Coastal Carolina program history in sacrifice hits (39), most fielding chances (1,296) and most putouts (1,173).
