He said he was sore on Monday, but otherwise fine. He's a tough kid. This is a scary game, though. MSU has some efficient pass rushers, especially Rush at the defensive end spot. They need to give Colby a chance to be successful up front.
I think the pass to Rufran disproved that theory, Chase. Might have been hard to tell for two quarters leading up to that.
Honestly? A win. This team goes into every game trying to win it, and I think they are better equipped to compete against MSU than they were against Oregon. I'm not saying they're going to win. They're still huge underdogs. But that's the mentality you need to have.
Of course, it would also be nice to stay relatively healthy going into the conference season. The bye week should also help in that department.
That's the spirit, 73. It'll be interesting. These teams are so similar schematically and mentally. Will be fun to see them match up.
The spread is 32 points, and I think they'll cover that. I also think it's possible some Spartan fans may be nervous at halftime.
Definitely, 73. Even if they lose this game, I think they have done what they had to so far to reach bowl eligibility.
Yes, Vigen has mentioned it and I talked to Colby about it as well. Like a lot of QBs, he's just out there trying to make a play. But there have been a couple times where he just needs to throw it away. I think they'll put the emphasis on avoiding turnovers at whatever cost against MSU.
They'll take a shot or two if they're there with their receivers in single coverage, but I also think you'll see Colby throw the ball away.
Exactly. That's so big in this offense. They were in far too many 3rd and long situations last Saturday. They simply can't do that and be successful. The running game has to get going and everything else will snowball off of that.
No doubt, Chase. I think ball security has been Colby's biggest issue so far. He has to sense when the pocket is falling apart like that, and he hasn't always been able to do that. That's worrisome, because I'm not sure how much that can be taught in season.
If all goes well, no. Hill has a ton of potential. But when Wick and May are rolling like they have been, it's hard to take those guys out. If Hill gets a lot of touches, that will probably be because the Cowboys are getting blown out in the second half.
Yeah, definitely. For whatever reason, Wyoming has been able to punch teams in the mouth on the first 1-2 drives in 3 of the 4 games. Would be nice to establish physicality early on Saturday.
Yeah, I wouldn't be too worried about that going forward. Wick takes a ton of shots and very, very rarely fumbles. I'm calling fluke.
Yeah, I think he came in from behind. My guess is that Wick's grip loosened as he tired down a bit.
Yeah, they used CB Ryon'e Winters for the first time last week, and he should play again. Priester and Hill will also play. Bohl has said he wants to add more athletes to compete in the secondary.
Lucky for Wyoming fans, he's no Colts Trent Richardson.
Nance is on pace to be ready at the start of the season. His whole rehab has gone as planned which is obviously a great plan. Right now it's hard to tell but it looks like either Barnes or Williams could play somewhat right away. McManamen could also get some minutes as a 3 point threat off the bench.
Yeah, I think you mean Ryan Cummings. Bohl said he was probably going to play but then he suffered somewhat of a knee injury. It's not serious, but it does mean he may end up redshirting.
He has added some weight, though it's hard to notice it since he was so darn skinny before. The coaches really like what he can give them on the offensive side, being able to play stretch four and step out and hit a silky jumper. He's also continuing to grow. I think he's a legit 6-9 or 6-10. The question will be if he can defend his position.
That will decide how much he plays.
