RE: Red Zone Offense, or Lack Thereof
This has been a problem all year. Will be the end of any hope for a championship if it does not improve.

I wonder if they are holding things back for tougher games. Better start coming out soon

with that leaping ability?

Kind of what I was thinking...taller target who can go up and make himself even taller--chances would be pretty good for a completed pass or pass interference over an interception. I'm not sure if he's already appeared in a game yet, but if he hasn't I wonder if Thompson's injury might not result in a redshirt being burned? Of course a lot depends on his transition to this level of play, but with half a season to go, I think it would be worth it. I would guess that he would only get better the more he plays, and TDs in the red zone will be even more important come November...

In the CMU game notes, he's listed as having played in each game this year. Is he on special teams or something?

Yes, I've noticed Mitchell on special teams in a couple games. Was surprised to see him playing, given how deep our WR corpse appeared to be at the start of the season. Now with Thompson out and maybe Phillips too, maybe he'll get some chances at WR sooner rather than later.

The red zone problem is the OL, not our receivers. They can't open a hole wide enough to slip a poster of Kareem Hunt through sideways.

We have been fortunate with years and years of good, great oline... it has come to an end. This year we are average, not terrible but barely average and not improving as we are banged up.

If we win the MAC it will be a feat. There is a chance without a great MAC team this year ala WMU last year.

Last I looked CMU was about 8th in the conference in run defense, so maybe our RB's will have a little more success this week. I watched the CMU/OU replay last evening and they seem to be somewhat vulnerable to the run.
