    I'm worried about the Memphis game

    It's our first road game and they're going to treat it like their Super Bowl like when they play Ole Miss. I'm also worried about turnovers as always. We have to make sure we hold onto the ball like we did against NC State.

    So when I say worried I mean more worried than some of our fans seems to be. I see people already talking about 3-0 coming in against LSU and we're not good enough to just show up and waltz through Memphis.

    I think they're gonna challenge our defense bc they can exploit our weakness, deep ball. I expect the offense to look much better next week though. I say 35-31 state

    From what I saw yesterday Arnett will have this defense ready for whatever they try. Our offense is slowly coming together. I'm cautiously optimistic.

    I agree. This is the type of game we would historically struggle with. And we have failed to make anything easy so far. Close win, loss, blowout win…of those 3 a blowout win seems the least likely. I’ll take a similar game to last nite right now and take the 3-0 start.

    Yes Tiger High will play better
    Yes our first road game

    I think we play well enough to pull out a 10 pt win

    Arnett sold out for the run for NC State. Crumedy pushed their future NFL left tackle around like rag doll. I think we back off on Memphis b/c of their passing. I think we see Will throw some deeper passes. If we are challenged by Memphis' defense for most of the game I'll get the worries.

    It's definitely a trap game. If it was an 11 AM kickoff, I'd be very worried. But it's still a game we should win.

    Our fans will show up and be loud and propel our team to victory. LaTech was our wake up call. Leach won?t let us go back to sleep.

    I don't think thier o line is going to give them a chance to go deep on our defense d line. I see many TFL and Sacks. No way thier O Line is as good as NC State.

    Don't think so. Tiger high. Even before I did my 12 year stint in mempho hated them cuz of baseball. Polk always getting tossed up there. I remember him explaining one and he said they were "homering" us. LMAO. I remember listening to tiger high radio when they were in Vegas and their announcer bitched about a call strike and said "no wonder they win so much". 17 them.

    Just saying every game is different and you should always bring your 1A team unless your name is Alabama.

    Outside of TN State, I'm worried about every game. Loved the win yesterday but our offense still needs lots of work. We still have long stretches where we don't produce anything. Yesterday we had 5 yards of offense in the entire 1st Q. 17 points out of your offense won't be good enough in most games.

    Memphis definitely gets hyped up for a SEC game. I believe they beat OM the last two times OM played there. We should win the game on talent, but it will be a contest. We can't make mistakes and kill our own drives. Score score score.

    Our defense will be their toughest test so far. I like what I saw from the defense this weekend and if we carry that effort over to next Saturday. I really like our chances to win.

    State 35. Memphis 17
