Video: Mason On Mo Hasan
A change at quarterback before Vanderbilt's upset win over the Missouri Tigers sparked the Commodores offense in the win.
Mo Hasan gave the offense that spark with his ability to run the football and giving the Tigers a look they had not previously seen from the Commodores this season.
This weeks visit to South Carolina will not have that same element of surprise as the Gamecocks will have seen, and disected that tape of Hasan and the Commodores versus the Tigers.
Hasan has been limited because of the concussion he sustained against the Tigers and remains in the protocal, where he will likely remain until gametime for Mason and offensive coordinator Gery Gdowski, allowing them to force the Gamecocks to spend at least part of their practice time preparing for the possiblity that RIley Neal could start for Vanderbilt.
It's not much, but Mason will use the opportunity to keep his starter quiet as long as possible to attempt to gain any advantage he can Saturday.
Regardless of which quaterback starts- I expect Hasan- continued improved play will be needed if the Commodores are going to break their4 losing streak against the Gamecocks.
Kickoff is scheduled for 6:30 pm Saturday evening at WIlliams-Brice Stadium and can be seen locally on the SEC Network.
