Was I supposed to type something here?
A few things have to happen that we have not shown the ability to do so far this year:think it can happen if a couple of things happen. first the offense makes ou's defense stop the run game and not just a play, a series, or a quarter.
pound the heck out of the ball and make them tackle evans and miller plus take a few shots in the passing game.
tulane did it to them, so did texas, and the best thing this tcu teams does is run the ball downhill with those backs. don't panic when ou scores, don't get away from your strengths like texas did and this part is very doable.
the challenge is they have to come up with some stops on the defensive end and i will settle for field goals in the red zone. for that to happen the frogs have to play solid run defense which they have yet to do this year, have bethley pull a willis reed, many the linebackers finally awaken who knows, but they don't have to be dominant
1.) The Staff has to be prepared for what OU will throw at us, and also prepared to take advantage of weaknesses in their defense, and put our kids in position to shine against these perceived weaknesses. So far, our Staff has been clueless in this area, with the possible exception of this last Saturday.
2.) We will be facing a True Freshman QB. Yes, he is gifted, and talented, and his farts probably don't stink either. But, a Freshman nonetheless. Normally Linc has a number of hot read packages ready for GMFP, but he is working with an inexperienced kid this time around. Can GMFP and his Staff finagle some pass rush out of our D-Line? Dial up some pressure on the young QB?
3.) Zach looks to have a foot injury. We will not know the severity of it, or his playing status, until game time most likely. Were I GMFP, I'd have the kid hobbling around in a leg cast and crutches all week wincing in obvious pain when he's not on the practice field... "When you are strong, appear weak."
4.) Play with confidence. Play with poise. Do your jobs.
