The Citadel started their season with a one touchdown loss to Wofford. It was a tough loss because the Bulldogs had a chance to tie the game with seconds on the clock, but they also fought their way back from a 21 point deficit.
So there are positives to the loss, and losing the first game isn’t the end of the season or the playoff run by any means, but they did lose to a SoCon opponent.
Plus they’ve got another SoCon opponent in Chattanooga this Saturday, so it’s kind of a must win game already.
Brent Thompson said, “you don’t want to start 0-2. That’s for sure, you’ll be 0-2 in the league, so I’m not going to put any more undo pressure on us that it is a must win, but we certainly do view it if we want to make a run at this thing that we’ve got to get this one.”
Lorenzo Ward said, “every game in the Socon is a tough game. We view every game as a must win.”
