I get why the points with the Buccaneers are tempting, but you have to wonder how prepared the Buccaneers will actually be after having prepared all week for a different opponent before COVID made them shift their focus. Presbyterian’s at least got the advantage of being at home and knowing who’s on tap so I’ll lay the points with the Blue Hose here.
