    One thing I will say is that even though we moved the ball well at UM, we really haven't seen anything in all 3 games to indicate that this offense is a real quick strike, score fast offense of the past several years. Maybe they'll develop that way, but the way this offense moves (even in the good times), it seems like we're not going to see too many games where we score more than 35. If we keep giving up 14 or less each game, I guess I'll take that. But I do think that's part of the shift with TC gone and Eck calling plays that we don't see as many 56-10 games this year. Now, with that being said, we need to score more than 38 against Drake and LIU. And in both games, we left 7 on the board with fumbles at the goal line. Clean up the offensive mistakes, and we score 45+ in both games. We'll get there.

    That doesn't excuse how BAD we looked doing it though...

    The fallout from the Pine Bluff game continues. A closed, conservative offense paired with a QB that is in over his head leads to games like the last 2. Let's hope it doesnt cost us when the games actually matter.

    I don't know, the Stig teams always seem to play up or down depending on the opposition (except for the Pine Bluff game). Drake isn't as bad as we might think. 13 starters returning from last year's team that got beat 27-24 by Iowa State. Yes, there is a noticeable drop off between the number one quarterback and the number two quarterback. I'm optimistic when Gibbs returns that we will be much better just as long as the offensive line ratchets things up. That group is still trying to find itself. We have a lot of talent - we just need Mr. Gibbs to showcase his abilities.

    Drake lost 10-7 against a d2 team and by 40 to UND, they're as bad as we think. Our O will get eaten alive during Valley play with anybody but Gibbs behind center it appears, it's disappointing knowing that Nelson is the best backup option we have. Also, Vinnie can't be missing those gimmies.

    How does the Pine Bluff game have any connection to the last two games?

    I said during the game that concentration was lacking. I'm not quite going to say that the Jacks mailed this one in, but...

    Actually, why not? The Jacks mailed this one in.

    It could be worse. We could be USD.

    The best part of this is that you could have said this at any time for the past 10 years and be objectively correct.

    Fallout from the blowout reactions? (It was more meant in jest)...but, the Rabbits should have dropped 50-60 on these last two teams. The playcalling was almost trying not to score. At least I hope it was them being ultraconservative, otherwise...uff da

    It's funny, I debated with myself the smackiness of the remark and decided, well, "Truth is a defense."

    Team just played really sloppy, especially the 1st half.

    3rd quarter was better, for the most part. Other than the 1st and goal series.

    4th quarter, team was ready to go home.

    Lots to be excited about... very talented team, lots of players to cheer for.
    Things to be concerned about... play like this against a Valley team, and they'll lose. Even to USD.
