    UNLV= another shoot out?

    UNLV won today 30-6 against Idaho State (scoring 27 in the second quarter). Granted Idaho State is not Toledo caliber, but do you think we are in for another shootout? Hope our defense has made some MAJOR improvements...

    rocky hinds (the transfer from usc) threw for 322 yards. We need to be able to pressure him, otherwise it's going to be a shootout.

    Granted, Idaho State isn't that great of a team. They averaged 2.1 yards rushing, and still had no problem passing for 288 yards on UNLV. UNLV also converted 6-16 3rd downs, and 3-4 4th downs, saying that most of those 54 points were scored on home run drives where the opposition couldn't even stop them on 1st and 2nd down. They also had 26 first downs compared to Idaho State's 21 first downs.

    I think we'll be fine. :)

    Rule impact changes: http://www.reviewjournal.com/lvrj_ho...s/9345360.html
    So new rules, which could shave as many as 20 plays and about 15 minutes, were instituted. So they can add a 12th game and total plays are still less over the season...interesting.

    Definitely not a given. But after a few days to get my heart rate back to normal, I think the Toledo win was a big one. They immediately were tested with the ghosts of seasons past....going into overtime with the other team having all the momentum. And they still found a way to turn it around and win. I think that will be huge for the future. Now if they could get one big non-Hawkeye statement win!

    Not even close

    I say ISU 45 UNLV17

    Mark it down. UNLV would get waxed by TOledo.

    Thumbs up It won’t be a shoot out!

    UNLV will try to make it a free wheeling pass fest because that’s the only way they can win. But ISU can defend the few good players they have.

    Coach Mac is still looking for the “must have” ISU running game and he is on the verge of finding it. Expect Stevie H with 125 yards plus and Josh Johnson to run the ball for the first time (with success). The short yardage passing game will be utilized to keep UNLV honest. Kock will be brought in on third down and ISU will simply pound the ball play after play.

    Mac must establish the run so that future opponents worry about another dimension in their preparation. My Prediction.

    Not sure anyone will worry about our running game compared to our passing game this year.

    While try to establish a running game is fantastic, why not let our passing game rip to show the nation what we are actually capable of?

    A 28-14 score over UNLV wouldn't impress many folks, regardless of W or not.
