ODU games are a short drive and worth it. If I lived in Richmond, I would probably just want to watch from home.

I live in Richmond and watch the football on tv/internet etc. but wouldn't miss a basketball game live if I can help it.

Our OL struggled a lot, but Rice does have a very good DL with a very good end (Weaver kept in check) and they blitzed a ton.

Not saying leave lanes uncovered. But shake things up a bit. Use deception. It seems like all we ever do is bull rush. Same guys rushing in the same lanes everytime. It becomes predictable and does not cause other teams to have to think.

Middle Tennessee manhandled Florida International (our best win) without Brent Stockstill. They were up 24-3 in the 3rd quarter I think. My point is ODU has to play its best game, by far, to have a shot. If we play like we did yesterday, we will lose big.

If you stunt or get outside vs a mobile QB, you are asking for trouble. That is why we had so much succes vs Charlotte ans Rice QBs (and Sturm last year). You have to make those guys beat you being dropback passers. Additionally, you have to stay in lanes vs inverted wishbone.

Against Mike White and stationary QBs, the DL does stunts and line games.

If we play like we did bs North Texas or WKy, we have a good shot.

I think the two teams are pretty evenly matched, and this is very much a winnable game. I expect MTSU to be favored, but by no more than 7-7 1/2 points. ODU wins -- 38-31, with no turnovers, Lawry going for 135 yards, Williams hitting 67% for just under 300 yards and two TDs, three sacks on Little Stock, and one pick-six. Halleluja, praise the Lord, and pass the ammunition! Go Monarchs!

Before we pass out the Koolaid. I wish someone would break down the strengths and weaknesses of Middle Tennessee.

Solid defense. Good short passing game. They are a better team. We need to figure out something.
