Thread: UNI Playoff Game Week

  1. #1

    Default UNI Playoff Game Week

    Just started a new thread for this week's game.

    Sounds like defense is almost fully healthy.

    Genant has 2 games left, does he play this week?

    I would say yes because no guarantee we play more then 1 game. It gets tricky because its either play a semifinal game or sit that out hoping for a national title game. or play the next 2 games and miss a national championship game, my guess is if he plays next 2 games and we win, he would give up his last year to play in the national champion ship game. will be interesting to track assuming we win.

    I just want us to pound the ball with Mickey, let him have 25 carries, and want the defense to get pumped to get some sack and make it hard on their QB. really would like to see us bring the pressure on them.

    We need to win 3 games to make National Championship (total of 4 games). Beat UNI, probably play James Madison in Quarters, Semis, Championship.

    He would have to sit out the quarterfinals and the semis to play the natty and this game. We aren’t in the quarters just yet.

    Thanks for the correction. Got baby brain too so details and basic things escape me for the time being.

    I'd be all for taking it to McElvain, but his mobility increases the importance of maintaining discipline along DL and not overpursuing.

    We did a great job last time on him. Let’s do the same thing!

    I'd like to see some deep balls to Cade and Anderson when we get around the 50 yd line. Pass interference is a likely outcome and an interception doesn't give them a short field. UNI will be loading up to stop Mikey, some deep balls will keep them honest. Johnson is so good at subtly pushing off without drawing an OPI. It seems we are too conservative at times with our vertical passing. They did a good job with that in the 2nd half against UNI the first time.

    Maybe we are banged up at tight end, but the lack of touches for Kunz is concerning. That area of the field will be open on Saturday.

    Don't you think Farley will have more designed QB runs or option plays, particularly with Weston likely limited at best?

    Last game, I think one reason the Jacks didn't get as many sacks is because the scheme on defense dictated containment rather than sacks.

    I think you're probably right about UNI focusing on stopping run, and I think Cade will get DBs' attention, so I look for Janke and Anderson to capitalize IF wind isn't an issue. The forecast is saying wind could be almost double what it was last time, so screens and short passes to Campbell could be fallback plan.
