The closer we get to this game the more nervous I am, that offense is explosive and while the defense has been abysmal they’ve missed a ton of guys these first few games (they have been recruiting well on that side of the ball). Traditionally we’ve not played well in Texas.
One thing I am sure of is that we will need TDs and not FG attempts to get the W here.
That article about the qb makes me a little nervous too. Sounds like they just missed on a few deep passes that could have changed the outcome of the Southern Miss game. Even with those misses he threw for almost 350 yards with 2 TDs. And at 27 he is probably more mature than most college players. Our secondary better be ready to play on Saturday.
Everytime Elder or Tucker gets 5+ yards past their DB…Reynolds heaves it as far as he can and they end up having to stop the route and wait on the ball or it turns into a jump ball. Our wideouts can stretch the field vertically…but Reynolds doesn’t have the arm to really take advantage of that.
Probably why the defenses bunch us tight as much too…they aren’t afraid of Reynold’s deep arm either.
He makes it work with all of his other talents…but man what he could be with another 10-15 yards on his distance.
Not pessimism. Just observations. We truly haven’t looked that good. Too many mistakes and silly penalties. Too many long balls allowed and other teams will pick it up. The replacement center had a rough 1st quarter. I want to see us play to our capabilities. That’s it.
