Gonna hurt the Rockets for the rest of the season for sure, but I hope it doesn't impact his draft prospects too much.

Saw them pumping up the air cast on the field. No surprise

RE: EMU Game Thread
Well, the wind was a factor, the injury to Thompson was factor, and the refs were bad at times. However, there are times when this team looks like an undisciplined mess.

How were we out coached?

Our red zone play calling is horrible...we commit way too many penalties...our defensive scheme is a wreck...we were giving them 10 yd cushions on their final drive...Seems like a lot of the same issues from a year ago. Fortunately their WR rounded off his route and allowed our DB to make a play at the end of the game. Otherwise, we may be looking at a different outcome. On the other hand...EMU was sound on defense...they made plays, were in position and challenged our WR's on just about all throws. That team is well coached. Not taking anything away from EMU (because they are much improved), but that game should not have been as close as it ended up being...we were lucky to escape with a W...did the same thing vs Tulsa...who happened to get blown out by Tulane today.

The red zone play calling has been atrocious for the better part of a decade.

Need to put a tight end in the middle of the field inside of the 10. Not using the Michael Roberts portion of the field at all since he graduated.

How many times do we have to keep getting screwed by the officials before our WORTHLESS MAC Commisioner does something about it?
There’s got to be something !
