We're coming for you next week. Should be a good one.

Looking forward to it. I think it will be a good one.

Griggs is hurt.. He is still the better qb of the 2.

Meh, at least Keoncan complete a 5 yard sideline route without throwing it 150 mph.

I would like to see Griggs play behind this OL.now that we have Dorbeck back. The OL played their best game of the season.

RE: FINAL: USM 31 UTSA 29
Wanted to congratulate USM for coming into the Dome and beating the tar out of us. UTSA had no answer for Howard and the USM unorthodox offense. You could tell right away that whatever game plan UTSA was preparing for was thrown out on the first drive. A few comments:

1. Great coaching by USM. Offensively, the zone read was critical to make the UTSA defenders protect the sidelines. Later in the game you hit UTSA right up the gut (see Ito 80+ yard TD) Defensively, you keep the blitz going (which got away from them vs UNT) It was relentless and you gambled correctly. Gave up some big plays but made some big critical stops. Plus knocked out some olineman out of the game.

2. Terrible coaching but UTSA. Stop telegraphing the blitz. Watch some USM film on how to disguise it. Terrible goal line play calling, especially with double team fade that was picked up and the worst 2pt conversion call of all time. USM was giving UTSA shots to win the game but play calling got in the way. Also we need some catching drills, way too many drops.

I think it was a combination. Griggs has been hurt all season. He played great in our first two, but has no tough on the short passes. The short passes fit the offense better. Also, Keon threw some beautiful long balls this game.

To those saying Griggs is the better overall QB? Maybe, but time will tell. He needs to learn tough on short passes just as much as Keon needs to improve his mid to deep ball. Both have all the skills but neither is there yet. Keon is an elite running QB, so if all else is equal he is our best option. Glad they are both wearing B&G :)

The Griggs injury was kept top secret apparently as even the media that regularly tweet/write about USM seemed just as shocked about Keon starting as our fans were.

Here is why Griggs didn't play.

Huh? He didn't start against Kentucky because of his left hand. I'm guessing they decided to do something more about it this past week, thus the cast. However, they wouldn't have had him travel and dress out if he wasn't available to come in if Howard played poorly. Hopefully he will heal up and we can have him available later in the season.
