One thing I was pleased with last night. I am beginning to believe we are going to be able to run the ball this year with some consistency. UNLV's front line and lb's are no slouches and we ran quite well. These are the two best games I can recall in awhile in our ability to open holes for our running backs.
Going back to our long yards per carry conversation from last week, Stevie clocked in at 4.9. Which is right where it needs to be.
Let's hope that Hicks can keep up the momentum for the rest of the season. If he can keep his average around 4.9 and threaten for 100+ yds per game then maybe we can open up the passing game since the D's will have to respect Hicks. And if we can open up the passing game then maybe half of everyone's post will not be complaints about the passing game. So keep it up Stevie and Go Clones!
I thought he looked very good last night. I don't want to be a downer, but it looked like at one point in the second half he was holding his groin...I hope he hasn't re-aggravated whatever hampered him last year.
