    Here is a thought

    Yes, we have some inexperienced kids playing right now. But think about this....
    1. If Farniok didn't go down, I am sure we would have had better chemistry on the line, Sam wouldn't have been sacked or hurried as much as he was. And... maybe, just maybe, we could have opened up a few more holes for our backs.

    2. If Luke Knott and Jansen Watson started, we might not have given up as many points

    3. If we don't miss 2 long field goals and cash in on a TD instead of a Netten field goal, things might be different.

    I agree on the play calling, in fact I said to my wife that last years offense was better.

    But here is my question.....
    How many of you would agree that if we played UNI again at the end of the season (considering my 3 points) that we would look way better, find a way to control their back, and would win by atleast 10 points????????
    Seriously think about this. I don't like to make excuses, but come on think about it. There was some negatives last night, but there were a lot of positives also. WE WILL GET BETTER!!!!!

    Good news is we may have found a solid kicker with Netten. I imagine the job is his now after last night

    Arceo got screwed there though. He had a 40-something yarder and a 54-yard attempt. Netten hit a 38-yarder which was good, but I wish we would've gone for it on 4th and 4 instead of taking the 22-yard attempt. Either way, Arceo had the harder opportunities and got punished for missing. I wish they would've gone with Arceo for the last two kicks.

    Areceo's kicks were not short, they were wide.

    I don't know anything about kicking but there was a TERRIBLE snap on Arceos first kick and the second looked like he clipped the ground or something

    Re: Here is a thought

    I can't for the life of me understand why we even attempt 40+ yard field goals. Attempting that 54 yarder was one of the worst coaching decisions Rhoads has ever made. We still had a time out, and our chances of getting a first down were clearly higher than making that.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    While I completely agree on the decision to kick the 54-yarder, Arceo has proven he can make 40+ yarders, so I see no reason not to attempt them if the situation arises.

    The defense has more upside than the offense unless the playcalling changes. We run our plays from a well read novel. Everyone has read it. One double reverse about surprised the hell out of UNI. Lord mercy, we did one double reverse.

    Stuff happens in games, like the Farniok injury. That's football. Still can't believe our O-line was unable to pull it together after that, though. That is the most troubling thing about last night, the degree to which one key injury completely changed (in a negative way) the effectiveness of the O-line group the rest of the game.

    That position group, which I thought would be serviceable this year, really has some problems, I think. But you go to battle with the guys you've got. Hopefully they can improve, and fast!

    I'd say it's a wash, chance of converting the first down is maybe 50% at best.

    ...and the chances of Arceo to make a 54-yarder, especially after missing a 40-yarder, are much less.

    Don't see how anyone can give Arceo any love.

    His first kick, though long, was set up so all he had to do was kick it straight. No angles at all

    His second try was closer to the Northwest hill than the Jacobson building.
