Game Week: Toledo
Kentucky is already in the rear view mirror and another toughie, Toledo, is on deck as we continue through the meat grinder part of this year's schedule (yesterday, WMU creamed BSU and NIU played very tough vs. SDSU, a top 25 team).

Very possible that Toledo will be the 3rd of 6 straight teams who will become bowl eligible.

Anyone but those guys! Usually you go from a SEC opponent to a lesser talented conference foe. Not so here, Toledo is a much better team than Kentucky.

We, obviously, have some say in our OOC schedule, but the conference schedule is out of our hands.

It would have been nice to get some easier opponents now and play the tough games on TV during the last month of the season.

Still have a good shot at being Bowl eligible for the second year in a row.

Dear Bob,
I'm not sure that Toledo is better then Kentucky. So far, Toledo has shown a very porous defense, and it could come down to the team with the ball last, winning the game. I just hope our defense can continue to play at the level they have. That could be the difference in this game.

Ken, don't kid yourself. Toledo would be a middle Big 10 or SEC team. That offense is pretty unstoppable. Our defense is going to have to induce some turnovers to stay in it.

Toledo's defense really is giving up a lot of points. Averaging 35 points against per game, with only FCS Elon scoring less than 24 on them.

RE: Game Week: Toledo
This is a game we can win. If our O can't find it's way against this D, well........

Strength vs strength here. I doubt they'll be able to run the ball on us, so it'll simply come down to putting pressure on Woodside. Our pass rush is better than last year (yes Bob, even without the irreplaceable POC) so this game will be in Neathery's hands to win or lose.

At this point, I'd much rather rely on Neathery winning or losing us a game, than Creighton or Keen.

We're overdue for this team to put it's first complete game of the season together. Let's go boys!

Anyone know the status of Banham, Vann, and Hoying? This is where a beat reporter would come in handy.

Banham may have been a concussion? Somebody said Vann had another shoulder problem? Hoying had a knee sprain but should be back this week.

We are just fine at RB with Eriksen and Turner. Vann just might be one of those guys that is injury prone, luckily we've got the other 2 who are just as productive.

Obviously missed Banham's sure hands on the punt return team, but it got us back to playing our best RB's. Banham is a special teams specialist, hopefully back this week. If not, have to stick with the sure handed Holder back there. Daugherty just seems to have lost his way and his confidence.
