    Default Game Week: Arkansas Pine Bluff

    Jacks are 51.5 point favorites, total is 71.5, predicted score of 61-10. Should be an opportunity to put the new red shirt rule to use as the starters may get pulled at half or early in the 3rd quarter.

    I don't see the Jacks covering the spread and it has nothing to do with the talent. I just don't see this coaching staff allowing it to get to that point. Wholesale line changes and conservative play calling in the second half should keep the spread in that 38-45 range. Before last year at Misery State, the Jacks hadn't scored 60 points in a game since something like 2005. Of course, there could always be a pick-6, fumble recovery, or other misc ways of scoring.

    I agree, probably won't get that spread. They'll be more worried about resting guys for the impending Bison game.

    We have a bye next week, and already missed one game to cancellation. Rest shouldn't be an issue at all.

    I'd be surprised if the starters were out before half regardless of the score.

    You're telling me you're going to risk injury to TC if we're up by a 50 burger early in the 3rd quarter? I realize I said rest, but what I meant was making sure we don't risk unnecessary injuries to any key players.

    We might hit that score after watching our young rbs last game in the 4th. I wouldn't be shocked if were almost running exclusively and still putting up major points. APB is a baaaaad team. On the other hand, I also wouldn't be surprised to see us come out pretty lethargic after what we did to MAU if the guys come out overconfident.

    Here is what I have on UAPB. Creating this made me so thankful for Matt Zimmer, KDLT and KSFY, MidCo, state newspapers, and radio stations. There is almost ZERO coverage of these guys.

    I think we learned our lesson about playing starters too long last year during the New Hampshire game.

    I would not do that but wasn't TC in there when SDSU was up something like 42-7 near the 4th quarter last year against New Hampshire in the playoffs. He took a hit, looked like he was hurt and then they left him and he ran outside and got hit again (on the very next play).
    If he was injured the next week against James Madison or not is still up in the air.
