Think the NT's QB picks apart our defense.

Good article MGNation

"Statistically ODU is simply bad. The advanced numbers show a team that struggles to move the chains, is unexplosive, and inefficient at getting points inside the 40. They also turn the ball over. This is all unsurprising considering the QB and injury situation."

Captures the ODU offense pretty well.

I think the Monarchs will put up more of a fight than you predict in the final score though!

RE: North Texas Game Thread
I have to agree with DWING. That's a really nice, well-researched article by MGNation (the best I have read recently), but I think he has the predicted score wrong. The Monarch offense came together last week against WKU, and I don't expect to see the turnover parade continue against UNT. The fumble last week came on the exchange between Williams and Lawry and was an anomaly. I don't think we will see that again. Of Williams' three interceptions, only one can be attributed to being a bad throw by Williams, with one being bounced off the receiver's hands, and another being made on a last play of the game Hail Mary pass. This is the game where the Monarchs turn the corner and come home with the win.

RE: North Texas Game Thread
I'm excited for this game. If you just do the tale of the tape, you conclude that ODU is going to lose, possibly not big, but lose. However, I was impressed last week and think with some tweaks, a couple of good bounces, and not doing something stupid, ODU can leave Texas with a much needed win. I think this is the statement time for ODU -- time to step up or slither away. At any rate, they are my team and I'll be watching to see if they can turn the corner at the expense of UNT. My wish list:

- come out swinging and punch them in the mouth early - with a Texas size pop
- start out with the dynamic duo (Lawry and Cox) until they start crowding to stop the run -- as soon as they do, work the short and intermediate pass game
- keep our defense off the field, move the chains and don't get greedy
- pressure the QB and make him uncomfortable
- make them earn all the points they get, no mental giveaways
- DBs need to not give a 10 yard cushion on receivers -- got to cover short and not get burned long
- play aggressive and no bonehead plays missing assignments or give away penalties
- let's complete some short and medium passes and not take shots down the field until we can manage to move the ball
- play the whole 60 minutes

There, needed to get that out!! Can't wait for the kick.04-cheers

I am cautiously optimistic. I wasn't giving us much chance before last week based on what I've read about UNT. Then I saw them for the first time against FAU and they did not look good. I realize that they are home this week and will probably play better. I just hope they keep making mistakes and we eliminate ours.

It all comes down to our offensive gameplan. Just give the ball to our backs. If we throw it more than a dozen times in the first half we will lose.
