    UConn Breakdown

    Found this tidbit on espn

    Season Leaders
    ISU
    PASS:Jantz 43-77, 466 yds, 5 tds
    RUSH:Johnson 27 car, 135 yds, 0 tds
    REC:Horne 11 rec, 163 yds, 0 tds

    UCONN
    PASS:McEntee 18-39, 212 yds, 0 tds
    RUSH:McCombs 51 car, 259 yds, 4 tds
    REC:Griffin 7 rec, 144 yds, 1 td


    So UConn runs the ball more than we do and their QB has no passing TD's on the season with 3 int's. Think this is the game where the D gets some big takeaways? Can we take away the run to force McEntee to throw?

    Re: UConn Breakdown

    Are you sure those are right? I know Horne has at least one touchdown.

    Re: UConn Breakdown

    Uconn is better than Iowa on D, but worse on O. That's basically what I got out of watching them. If we can keep them in third and long all game, they're going to struggle. Need to stop their RB, who is fast quick guy, basically a rich man's Carlos Anderson.

    Don't think so, he got down to the 1 yard line and was tackled. Don't recall any other close calls with him, he could have had one against Iowa on that bubble screen but got chased down from behind. BTW...has a bubble screen EVER worked that well for us?

    Re: UConn Breakdown

    Thought this was a bit comical...but here goes...this was posted on the UCONN Football boards in JULY - posted by CTfan07.....

    I would like to get his evaluation now.....

    I see UConn as the favorite for this game, especially at home. I do think the game will be close, but knowing that Iowa State will be as inept as us on offense is comforting.

    QB- New QBs for both teams. Push

    RB- New RBs for both teams. Push

    WR/TE- Neither have too much going for them, particularly with new QBs.
    Offensive Line- Iowa State has an excellent player at Tackle, but I UConn consistently puts out one of the best lines in the Big East year-in, year-out. Edge UConn

    Defensive Line- This will be UConn's strength in 2011. NFL draft pick in Kendall Reyes at DT, very experienced line, lots of depth. Edge Uconn

    Linebackers- Edge Iowa State. They have some of the best in the Big 12

    Defensive Backs- Iowa State is average/solid in the back. UConn has a star at corner in Blidi Wreh-Wilson and Dwayne Gratz at the other corner position ain't to shabby either. UConn

    Special Teams- DOn't know much about Iowa State, but Uconn will have the best kicker, maybe the best punter, and the best return man (Nick Williams... led the NCAA in return average) in the Big East. UConn

    I expect to win this...as all of us probably do. I think our offense is ACTUALLY starting to click. Knock on wood.

    I think we've got the road game monkey off our backs with the Neb and Texas win.

    I feel good about our D and the offense is clicking.

    Re: UConn Breakdown

    I think Iowa State wins this game, but it's going to be close. Short week after an emotional win over a rival. Road game on Friday night. UConn's offense is pretty inept, but their defense is salty. I'm guessing it will turn out like the Kansas game last year, where ISU's offense just sucks for the first half before turning the corner in the second half.

    Prepare to be surprised. Their Dline will be better.

    I look at UCONN a lot like Iowa. They will be slightly better defesnviely but they don't have a passing game or at least they haven't shown that. If I'm Wally, I'm bringing run blitzs' from the get-go. If I'm Herman I'm doing what I did against Iowa. Call plays and let Steele throw the ball. The interior Oline will have their hands full but the Dline should be a little better than they were against Iowa. We have to play well, but we should win this one.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.

    Its a short week for BOTH teams! As far as punters go, I would take Kirby against anybody! He looks like a future NFL punter to me! Even better than Brantner! And hes only a sophomore? Hooray! 2 more years with Kirby (we hope!)
