Offense overall: B- QB Play: B+ Downing came in and did what a backup was supposed to do, and he actually made some pretty good throws. Made some good reads and some good checkdowns. He went 11/21 for 159 with a TD, no picks, and a fumble, with at least one and maybe two drops. He was Jeff Ballard in the spread. Lacked pocket presence, which, in part, could be due to a lack of actual gameplay. Duggan provided a needed spark. He had good pocket presence, and good overall leadership at the position. He also was much more efficient in this game then I believe any game last year. He went 16/19 for 241 with 3 TDs and a pick that was due to a drop. Made a couple of good deep throws and reads. Provided a needed spark. He had good pocket presence, and good overall leadership at the position. He also was much more efficient in this game then I believe any game last year. Made a couple of good deep throws and reads. Pocket presence could've been better, and he had snap issues. Offensive Line: D Gave up six sacks to a three-man front, and stalled drives twice in plus territory. Gave up a sack that lead to a fumble. Too many penalties. Bright spot was rushing. Play Calling: B Had flashes at times. Could've used running backs more. Did a good enough job to have us in the game. First half drove the bus; second half more rhythm and swag. Good ball dispersion. Defense: D Limited pressure on the QB by the line and ends. Gave up too many big plays, especially on the ground due to improper fits. Secondary was decent, not great. Gave up a big play, but the defensive player was in contact, it happens. Was good on third down holding ISU to 3/11 and got a score. Special Teams: B- Missed field goal, and return team lacked explosiveness. Punt return showed some pop, and the punt team averaged 40 yds with no returns. Coaching: D The big running plays were due to scouting and planning. To come out of a time out in a critical situation and give up an explosive play is inexcusable. We'll still beat Bevo.
