    KSU

    3rd nationally in rush offense
    20th in yds/rush
    12th in scoring offense
    11th in total offense

    5th nationally in scoring defense
    8th in total defense

    Granted, these stats are skewed bc of competition, but this will be our biggest test we've faced so far. We may need to play autry in this.

    It'll be interesting to see the line. I'll guess us -5.5 to 7

    Bowling Green and Nichols State were their 2 opponents. So very much skewed by competition. We should beat the brakes off these clowns.

    If we are healthy and the line is 7 or less bet the farm on us.

    Maybe so, I think we win, but I see a tough game. They've played well so far. They held bowling green to 140 total yards last week. We had perhaps our best defense ever last year, and we didn't hold a team under 180 all year. Their commitment to the run with a good oline is what concerns me though

    Bowling Green is bad. They were picked to finish last in the MAC and that’s saying something. If Tommy and the OL is fully healthy we win something like 38-13. If not we win something like 24-14.

    This is the big debate. The one that told me we'd have the mass suspensions about a month before we found out said then autry was one. He still says autry is one. Some say autry isn't. Guess we'll all know soon

    Autry was suspended week 1 right? If not for tutor gate, has anybody heard some other explanation as to why he was suspended week 1?

    This one worries me. Any team that can run will give us fits this season.

    I wonder how BG and Nichols have done against the run in their non-KSU game.

    And I think the line is over 7 assuming TS is good to go

    Wait, I thought you shouldn't post stuff unless it is documented.

    Yeah, after re-thinking, I think it's more 9 to 11.

    BG rush def totals...
    Vs Morgan st: 31 carries 46 yds
    Vs KSU: 58 carries 333 yds

    Nichols st...
    Vs KSU: 58 carries. 361 yds
    No opponent week 2

    Morgan st is a hell of a running team too**

    It’ll definitely be a closer game than it was last year. Before we played them last year they struggled to beat their FCS opponent week 1. Factor in a new coach and it should be a good test for us. Definitely need Tommy.

    IF we can't beat kstate,we will only win 3 more games,I think we can beat them. Going to be a long year if we lose this one.

    We better toughen up in the middle and start wrapping up, or next week will be a dog fight

    Yep. They’re running some I formation this year and their line looks improved.

    I-formation? Do we bring in an extra LB this week?

    Any team committed to the run right now (like KSU) will give us fits because we're too soft up the middle.

    Also, while our tackling was greatly improved, we got tired (and sloppy) in the 2nd half against USM as we did in New Orleans and had a lot of missed tackles in the 2nd half. Not being able to control the line of scrimmage defensively is our weak link imo, and KSU will exploit that enough to give us a game.

    Yep. Our schedule has helped us grow young talent. And they need a bigger test.

    I think we see a lot more of Aaron Brule next week to help against the run. He's no Willie Gay, but he's fast and knows how to tackle. We slow down the run, then we win easily. We need to clean up the tackling though.
