    Rogers, Tribune, and Lynn

    We're going to need these guys to contribute in a meaningful way very soon and how they perform is going to be key to getting some wins down the road.


    Tribune needs an injection of confidence and unfortunately throwing him out their against that Texas receiver wasn't the best way to gain it. I think he has all the tools though.

    Rodgers and Lynn better hit the film room this week as they are going to see lots of action.

    Is it just me or is the D-line getting more pressure this year?

    I thought that Tribune made a significant contribution to the outcome of the Texas game...

    Freshman CBs usually have to learn the hard way. They are going to get picked on. Even promising DBs will look bad at times - but it just takes time in the saddle.

    This is true, but I wish we would have given Tribune some help from the safety when he came into the game. Rhoads had to know that Texas was going to pick on him. Everyone in the stadium and watching on TV knew it. Tribune needed some help over the top from the safety, but instead he was on an island against Texas' best WR. Not a smart coaching decision by any means. I felt bad for the kid. Hope he learns from it.

    I don't disagree, and I'm sure Rhoads and Burnham would tell you candidly that they wished they could do those plays over again.

    In the next couple years, I'm pretty excited about Rogers and Tribune. They will take some lumps this year (it's bound to happen more - think about the GOOD passing teams we'll play...). Add that we have a couple more years of Lynn and Sam - I think our secondary will be ok.

    Don't you think that Rogers will be moved to Safety next year? We lose both starters back there, and right now Cotton and Shaeffer are the backups. I think Mutcherson will factor in though. But I could easily see Rogers and Mutcherson as our starting safeties next year.

    Yeah, I wonder if they just weren't prepared to change what they were doing on the fly like that? It's like they just just Tribune to go out and do Watson's job. Sam Richardson played well, but I think he could have been helped out by the scheme, and like you said, it doesn't look like Tribune was at all. Hopefully Nigel bounces right back up.

    I agree it was a coaching blunder. I kept hoping they'd call a timeout to stop the bleeding and get something figured out but no dice. Texas went fast 4 plays in a row and just threw at Tribune.

    Sam E didn't look great his first game but the game against Texas, he was a boss. They just need time to adjust to the game experience.

    They definitely need Nigel to be more physical or get him some good shoes. He had a tough four plays.

    Was Rodgers in for the hail Mary before half?

    Yes, he was in when we played nickel at the end of the half, and once in the second half too.

    He'll play a lot more against tech as we will play more nickel.

    I'm nervous that we needed to play him and what might happen if a starter misses extended time.
