Pretty convincing win at The United States Air Force Academy today.

These scores are crazy today. A bunch of teams scored 40+ and lost. 1506 total yards in one game!?! Its a different era.

You might want to keep those horns, looks like Texas has found a QB. Now they just need to find their defense.

I could not get the game...I'll have to take your word for it.

The ducks look good. They may just have something for the SEC.

UNM vs Boise State post game.

Started out with a tailgate "light", no grilling, no shade set up, just a table and chairs. Blake's Green Chile Cheeseburgers, beer, chips & dip. Good to see some friends that I hadn't seen in months.


Boise State had a solid contingent. My friend had just spent a work week in Boise-shared a flight to ABQ with many on Friday and had nothing but good to say about Boise and BSU fans. I agree. A good lot.

note sign in the middle.


Pre-game I had asked for "minimize mistakes" and so UNM fumbled 3 times resulting in 18 points for BoiseSt-- despite these gals best efforts.

The New Mexico highlight of the first half was at the quarter when the Eastdale Softball players were recognized for their
Little League WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONSHIP.




Boise State had people in war paint.



UNM had real Indians--



and cars with Mohawks



Down 25-0 at the half things didn't look good for NM.

Boise State marched down to the four, went for it on fourth down, but NM's here to fore lackluster D held. Employing a pure option attack, lead by true Freshman QB Cole Gautsche (Tim Tebow without the throwing arm). marched down to score a touch down. 96 yard drive

After a Bronco fumble returned to inside the five and another touchdown these Lobos weren't looking like the Lobos of Locksley who would have folded by now. Yes, there was some piss and vinegar in this bunch.

As the full moon rose over the stadium, the Lobos began to Howl.



But NM's D continued to be overmatched. Consistently allowing third down conversions. Boise State has some solid receivers, particularly TE #85. Boise State also knew they could pick on NM's CB #13 who makes up for his lack of size by slowness. Boise State may not be enamored with their QB, but against NM he looked like a solid college QB. Not a star by any means, but able to throw pretty well.

NM got it close. 32-29. The Lobo defenders were able to finally stop BSU with about two minutes to go, but NM was stopped for four downs turning the ball back to BSU. BSU with a big play was able to get to first and goal. They then showed class by going into Victory Formation ending the game.

Good job Boise State.

Have to say it was fun cheering for NM, especially cheering for them in the fourth quarter. It has been a long time since we've been able to do that. NM still has a ways to go to be at the top of the league, but I think they are now on the right track.

UNM 29 Boise State 32

That looks like a heck of fun day there Jurgen.

UGA survived the day against UT. Tough fought game on both sides of the ball for both teams.

Tyler Bray can really sling that ball and UT were a couple dropped passes away from beating UGA yesterday.

The 2 freshman running backs from UGA rushed for 294 yards and 5 touchdowns between them.

Great game, and no injuries. Good day of football in Athens.

Next up is another huge game for UGA as we head into Columbia, South Carolina and play a tough Gamecock team. Hopefully we have revenge on our mind from last year when they came into our house and beat us.

Thanks - we got lucky after a 25-0 first half. Have not had a complete effort all year but......3-1. Heartburn - guess everyone needs a bit of excitement.

Like your Frosh QB Cole Gautsche. As soon as he learns how to throw New Mexico will be on a roll. Great game.

Nevada and Fresno State will be interesting. We gotta finish.

Gautsche was considered quite the catch. He lead the relatively new Cleveland HS (here in Rio Rancho) to the state championship and had signed with NMSt.

When UNM hired Bob Davie, Guatsche reconsidered and signed here.

But, a comment from a friend after Gautsche's first game... "He's a local, how come no one knew he couldn't throw?"



----
UNM has Texas State next year, one of my "possibles" from the beginning of the season. If we keep winning our "possibles" NM could end up with four or five wins. And it is clear the team already is heading in the right direction.

Has Erin Andrews' voice gotten more annoying since she moved to FOX?
And FOX doesn't seem to show her on camera nearly enough.

Shootout in the OSU-Texas game. 14-14 in the first quarter.

Saw this on yahoo sports. Thought it was pretty interesting.



Unconventional Attack

He's a walk-on who says he got scholarship offers from "Louisiana College and Arkansas I can't remember the name of it."
He's the heartbeat of one of the most explosive teams in the country. And he spent his Thursday at a job fair hoping to make connections in the construction industry.

It's easy to laugh at the idea of Stephen Warner, offensive lineman, being a college football superstar, but his Louisiana Tech offense is the only one in the nation to score 50 or more points in each of its first three games. It's 17-for-17 in red zone scoring (with 16 touchdowns) and it has scored eight touchdowns in less than a minute.
And its MVP, Warner, is a center. But not just any center.
Warner calls the plays.

You read that right. Warner, a senior, doesn't just snap the ball and block. He gets the plays from the sideline, reads the defense, calls the blocking assignments and then barks the snap count. He might have the most unique job in college football.

"I'm not aware of any other offenses that are doing it right now," says Tech offensive coordinator Tony Franklin. And that seems clear from defenses' inability to react to it. Last week against Illinois, Tech scored 52 points and gained 403 yards, a season low for the 3-0 team. (And Tech hasn't played any FCS schools, either.)

Tech even has a play designed for when (not if) defenses get confused. Warner draws a pass rusher offside with a moderated cadence, and then when somebody jumps, he switches to a "Freeze" play where all the Tech receivers take off for the end zone. Free play, and sometimes free points. It worked like a charm against Illinois, though the play was called back because of a penalty. No matter; if you jump offside against Warner and Tech, be prepared to run down the field while the culprit of this sleight-of-voice trick watches in pride.

The concept of having the center run the offense makes a lot of sense. At least it did to Franklin, who came up with it when he was a coach of the Lexington Horsemen of the National Indoor Football League. The team's home "field" was in Rupp Arena, which gets pretty loud even for football games. "On the road you had to do silent cadence," Franklin says. "So it was a good time to try it. The center we had loved it."

The fans did too, as the Horsemen went to the playoffs with a 53.1 points-per-game scoring average. Franklin was hired as coordinator at Auburn and got a grand total of seven games, including a bowl game in the 2007 season, to work his spread offense magic for Tommy Tuberville before being fired in October of 2008 when the Tigers were 4-2. Franklin landed at Middle Tennessee State, which promptly went 9-3. Louisiana Tech hired him in 2010, and the team won its first WAC title in 2011. Now here are the Bulldogs on the verge of being ranked, even though there's still skepticism on whether Franklin's offense can work in a major conference.

Even though it's convenient for the calls to come from the guy with the football, not even Warner thought much of the center-as-signal-caller idea at first. "I didn't know how it was going to work," Warner says diplomatically. "I'm trying to do so many different other things. We had to sit together and get used to it in practice."

But Warner was happy to try. He went to Ruston High School, which is literally across the street from where he now practices. He thought he could be a good Division I player, but as he jokes, "every kid in high school thinks they're a really good player. Looking back now, I wasn't that good." Warner was happy to walk on at Tech and try to earn a spot. He ended up being a three-year starter. He hasn't missed a game since he was a sophomore. Now Warner is sitting pretty as the crucial big ugly in a juggernaut offense that nobody can figure out.
Here's how it works for Louisiana Tech: Warner receives a jumble of signals from the sideline. "Some are alive," Franklin says, "and some are dead." Then Tech approaches the line with no huddle and Warner calls the plays. He says he's hoarse by the end of every game. The process is so intricate that the right guard looks back to see when quarterback Colby Cameron is ready, because Warner has too much to do already.

It also frees up some brain space for Cameron, now the second-most-important guy in the offense. (That's a joke. Sorta.) "With our deal," Franklin says, "The quarterback doesn't have to verbalize anything. He can focus on coverages and changing routes."

Warner was asked if he clowns Cameron for lazily sitting back and enjoying the show. The center remains all about business and refuses to take the bait.
"As long as we keep him clean," he says. "If he's sitting back there, that's a good day for us."

That's a gentle reminder that Warner has one other job in this unique offense: protecting the quarterback.
He happens to pretty good at that, too.

Jurgen, always on small school watch.

An interesting article on LaTech-- linked from the above article...


Louisiana Tech, the best team no one is watching

Quote:
Louisiana Tech coach Sonny Dykes didn't want to brag about his team.
He didn't want to boast about the fact that his Bulldogs are the only team to score more than 50 points in every game this season. They rank third in scoring offense, 11th in total offense with more than 530 yards per game and just annihilated Illinois 52-24.
Dykes didn't want to talk about most of these things because no one else is.
Louisiana Tech is currently one of the most successful teams in the country, but no one's talking about the Bulldogs because they're a WAC team and because their games are late at night and not on television.
While the country is looking at teams such as Ohio as a potential BCS buster and ULM as a giant killer, Louisiana Tech is steadily dismantling its opponents in relative anonymity.
"I don't blame people for overlooking us," Dykes said. "I think you've got to do something to earn people's respect and I don't think we've done anything.


"I think we just got to keep winning. I think that's the biggest thing. That's why I don't think they should even have polls until the middle of the season. You haven't even seen teams play. That's the craziest thing I've ever heard in my life. Like I said, I don't care. If we win, we'll get the respect. Whatever we deserve. If we win games, we'll get people's respect. If we don't, we don't deserve it."...





.
Main thing I recall about LaTech is they were one I mistakenly picked against in last years Bowl Pick'em. Hope they keep doing well. I like their coach, based on his comments.
