Well, that was fun. I doubt anybody was ever really worried, or anything, but still -- it was out of hand early, and we continued to pile on throughout the evening.
- Jake Laptad had a big night. A couple of sacks, and in the UNoCo's backfield all night. We need consistent pressure like that from him all season long.
- Most importantly, our running game was outstanding. Obviously, it's against a poor 1-AA team (maybe even a terrible one), but still. We destroyed them from the get-go. Especially on outside runs. We need to have a better running game than we did last year, and tonight was a great start.
- For a negative little bit, the corners opposite Daymond Patterson did not look good. From the looks of it, DP was ignored, but that's probably because the other side wasn't hot. Anthony Davis picked up a bunch of penalties, and that's never good. And then, Calvin Rubles came in on the act and picked up a pair of penalties. They need to pick up their game, because I don't know if you've noticed, but teams in the Big 12 like to pass. A lot. So, yeah, that needs to improve.
