ST ANSELM - 23
BOWIE STATE - 22
HOLY CROSS - 29
MORGAN STATE - 26
A DISMAL DAY FOR BOTH OF MY ALMA MATERS!
Dude, if Morgan doesn't beat us by at least 24, I would be somewhat shocked.MSU should be 2-0 right now. They looked pretty good against Eastern Michigan last week. One of my frat bros noted that it seems like no matter what is going on with the two squads when they play each other, that Bowie normally plays with a lot of pride and they really go hard against the Bears. Well, they are REALLY GONNA NEED THAT TO HAPPEN this time around. OR ELSE..
Anyway, I am going to try to stop short of clubbing our kids upside the head over their performance yesterday. But I think I saw enough of the game between running back and forth between tailgating and watching from the North end zone.
We aren't terrible, but once again, we're not very good. We have some athletes, #8 Nyme Manns our wide out is a beast, as is our tight end (Khary Lee #86). That is,whenever they can get the ball where it is needed to be put. I'll just leave that right there (we have a new transfer QB, I think he needs to get some cobwebs out, he did show some flashes however..) Our RB's (Keith Brown and Kendall Jefferson) were decent.
Defensively, we are so-so, but we are missing that nastiness that we used to have historically. Apparently, we lost our stud underclassman LB over some political and undisciplined BS (meaning both player and admin were at fault, go figure), so some of that intimidation factor is gone there. Oh, did I also mention that I heard he now has a full ride to Shepherd Univ.??
.. We got beat by some precise route running by a St. Anselm's wide out or two, and they had an RB (a Holy Cross transfer) who was nice. Not to mention their lil try-hard lefty QB beat us with his lil legs once or twice.
But the coup de grace, the SPECIAL TEAMS.
.. We missed two extra point kicks (our kicker has a strong leg and can kick the ball a ton, but it is like a SCUD missle, you just don't know where it's going)... And I was not impressed with the "rugby style" punting either....All in all, as we are prone to do each year, this was one of those games that happen 2 or 3 times a season with us, where we snatch defeat out of the hands of victory :: A 22-7 late 3rd quarter lead at home should be more than enough to hold onto.
I am predicting 4-6, maybe 5-5 again
, and as usual, I will be pumped for basketball season!! :nod:But I'll be doggone if I won't be having a great time tailgating etc. for the other 3 home games!!
