My guess is the rain makes it a grind-it-out big ten style game where running the ball successfully makes the difference. A 13-10 or 17-13 type of game is my guess. But we should be able to control a game like that against an “air raid” offenseIt does help us, but we did have trouble with Mockabee before. This defense wont give up 43 like last year, hopefully less than 17, but can we get more than that out of our offense? Hope so. Play action pass like to Malachi give hope.
The 11 is barely enough to complete a 2-deep AND 7 of the 11 are freshmen eligibility ALL with virtually no playing time experience!
Bingo. They will be quite experienced year 2 and 3. Exciting. But in the interim, what a great opportunity. Win at least 2 and go to a bowl. I would love to see some of our injured players like Kemp, Singleton, Rahmir (if he can) and Gabe (if he can) as well as Piper (if he can) be rewarded with a bowl. I really want RJ back for a bonus year. I am not sure how long they are all out.What a wonderful thing to be alive during such exciting times! The situation might help solve for the lack of playing time paying dividends in the years to come. But no doubt the balance of this year will be exciting times.
