    I also think our offense is going to eat up the clock.

    We better clean up the backend of our defense this week. We've left guys open there for 2 weeks now

    I always hate this game. It is usually closer than it should be.

    Here's what people are looking at:

    Se Louisiana put 600 yards on La Tech's Defense this past Saturday
    Offensively we have struggled alot
    We arent a physical offensive team that would wear Memphis down on D. Memphis is gonna rush 3/Drop 8 and play zone almost all day.
    Our run D is very good and we are physical. Memphis is going to play a speed game and make us chase them.

    ESPN FPI has it at a damn near toss-up 50.7/49.3

    Should we win by 10 or so? Sure. Will We? TBD

    If our D has a weakness, it's pass defense. Memphis is going to air it out.

    TBD. We ripped out La Tech's heart in week one which may have affected them that game as well as likely overlooking SELU.

    I'm not sure how good or bad La Tech really is.

    And super fast tempo. We struggle with it.

    When teams go slower, even a slow no huddle, and try to run it then our defense handles them.

    I'm sure Memphis plans to attack us deep, but they've got a true freshman QB who's played pretty well as such thus far but hasn't seen nearly the level of athleticism and chaos from the defensive front in his first two games that he'll get from us. As long as we come to play, it seems unlikely he has the time or composure to exploit us deep repeatedly.

    Didn't know their QB was a true rook. Just grew some extra wool.

    I can't see Memphis being more "up" for playing us in Memphis than NC State was for playing an SEC team on the road. If we are Memphis's Super Bowl then we were at least NC State's Conference Championship Game (Clemson being their Super Bowl). I don't think we lose unless we turn the ball over a few times. Our defense cleaned some stuff up from week 1 to week 2 and I expect to clean up a few things from week 3 and be even better.

    Lived in Memphis 12 years. You must have no idea how much retarded hate they have for STATE.

    Don't live in Memphis anymore. Their fans are nothing but bitter assholes. The 17ing game became as important to me as the egg bowl from '87 to '99 due to them.

    This is a trap game for us. It's going to be a barn burner.
