Kinda reminds me of George Winn.

Winn and the other guy I thought of was DeMarco McCluskey. Like Warren on Saturday, McCluskey was just one of those guys who just got stronger as you kept feeding him the ball.

Warren has a nice blend of power and shiftyness. He's listed at 5'11" (which means he's probably more like 5'10") and can shift his hips/center of gravity ever so slightly but then has the power to break tackles. He reminds me of Mike Boone (before the injuries) in a sense from the perspective of good vision and decisively hitting the hole. I think he's also faster than he looks on tape.

And of course Doaks showed us what he can do last year so I expect he'll be sharing the load with Warren when he gets back.

And not to poop in the soup, but let's not forget that UCLA's defensive line had zero experienced depth. IIRC, the announcers mentioned that ALL of their DL backups were true freshmen. So it was smart to wear UCLA down with Warren and even Ridder (although as mentioned I think it could have been even better with giving McClelland a bit of the load.) But I don't think that's going to work every game. We're going to have to spread the handoffs around and even more importantly develop an effective passing game.

Agree with everything you mentioned here Hawkeye, especially development of a passing game.

I don't disagree either and I would add that sometimes in games you ride the hot hand or go with what the defense gives you or until the defense can adjust to stop it. Ridder is a natural athlete, and together with Warren and the O Line, Denbrock and Fickell went with what worked. I fully expect BDFick and Denbrock to know they can't run the ball constantly week-to-week, and other backs will need to get some work in. I think a lot of folks act like Ridder can't throw a pass. He threw some nice balls when he really had to. Go back and look at the highlights. Yes, some were not so good but that sounds like Hayden territory as well. But with this exception, did Ridder fumble? Did Ridder throw an interception? If you listened to Fick's post game he said there was "a plan" to play both QB's for two series each I believe. My guess is, Hayden prepped on the conventional passing schemes and Ridder on the run/option/pass schemes. Again, I have a feeling if they decide to stick with Ridder (and I hope they do) he will be prepped with more passing plays. Of course, the wide receivers have to get open too. Anywho, short sample size with only one game but it's exciting to see we have an explosive, talented running back that gives us life with a running game.

This is great rhetoric, but the fact is that our offense didn't work that well.

We had 304 yards of total offense. We scored 17 offensive points through 58 minutes. 5 for 18 on 3rd down.

That's even worse than last year's averages. Against a team with 2 suspended starting D-lineman and no depth.

We won the game DESPITE our offense, not BECAUSE of it. Our defense won this game.

Not sure why, but we stopped doing what was working in the 3rd quarter and tried to throw the football. We really did not go back to running the ball until the last half of the 4th quarter. My guess is the staff tried to open things up a bit by getting the passing game going, but UCLA was not able to stop our rushing attack at all.

It will be interesting to see how the offense looks against Miami. It seems like the optimal thing for us to do is to continue with the power run game and speed option. When we did this in the 2nd and 4th quarter on Saturday we wore that UCLA defense out... they were gassed, hands on hips.

One more thing I would add is this was game one with a lot of young talent at the skill positions... ideally, it is only going to run much more swimmingly as the season progresses.

You forgot to mention that this is a team that's more talented. Also, we were on the road. Lest we forget this. UCLA has had top 25 classes (as high as #7) for the last 5+ years. They're substantially more physically gifted than UC. There's depth there, they're just young. Which, is the same deal as us....and even still they have a better roster.

We won exactly how we were supposed to win this game. Shortened the game buy running the ball, kept it simple for the benefit of a kid taking his first college snaps. Our D played well, but had we put them in the situations we often placed them in last year I question the outcome. The offense did it's job by keeping the defense fresh, off the field, and as aforementioned.....shortening the game dramatically.

In light of these circumstances I don't know how wise it is to deem this performance as being worse than last year's averages. At worst, the grade is incomplete.

Ok Captain Negative, what would you have said if we LOST the game? Crikes man! No, the defense didn't win the game because the safety or turnovers wouldn't have meant squat if we didn't score any points. The offense sustained drives and didn't turn over the ball after Moore was mercifully removed from the game. It was a team win overall with offense, defense and special teams all contributing.

RE: Big Hoss Iron Truck: Michael Warren II
Game plan: Slow the game down, run the ball check. Stop them on defense, check.....and finally field position, check. It was pretty ugly, both young team, inexperience and the like. Take the w and be happy. MU on Saturday will be a completely different and tough experience. No overwhelming heat, but water by the bucket. Add in the rivalry aspect and anything can happen. The Iron Hoss will need assistance running the ball. 02-13-banana

Exactly this. The offense controlled the ball, and didn't make crippling mistakes. That was a big change from last year, and a terrific strategy given our solid defense.

Does anyone know what Doaks real status is? It's hard to say if he is week to week or it's a long term issue with him.

No idea. Tom Groeschen over at the enquirer barely provides game previews/reactions. I'd be amazed if he did any research into injuries like that.

You mean if we had lost the game because the defense didn't get that turnover at the end, and they had gotten 30 more yards and kicked a long field goal? I'd be saying the exact same thing. Solid defense, mediocre (but not terrible) offense.

We're 109th in the NCAA in total offense. 103rd in first downs, 103rd in 3rd down conversion percentage, 117th in yards per pass attempt, 84th in yards per rush attempt.

Granted, a lot of teams played FCS opponents. But UCLA isn't expected to be a very good defensive team this year, and they were shorthanded.

That's not negativity. Negativity would be if I had ignored our defense (although this thread was about our offense). Our defense was outstanding. We got 5 sacks and completely shut down Chip Kelly's vaunted passing game.

You said I was using rhetoric for the coaching staff using what was working in the game to move the ball and sustain drives. Coach said the original game plan was for each QB to have some series early. When Moore was taken out of the game for ineptness we don't know how that impacted the original plan or schemes. Yes, I think it's a negative view to call out an offense that played on the road for its first game against a P5 squad on the west coast. This wasn't played against a team like Kansas. We won our first game on the schedule (no FCS) after winning only 8 games in two years. How about letting the team play a few games before you start discussing average stats from last year? If we had lost this game, I can only imagine this Board lighting up the coaching staff and bitchin' the light fantastic. But guess what, we didn't lose. We gritted out a win with the offense doing what it could under the circumstances (scored 24 points) to coincide with a great effort on defense. We've seen what this team was under Imposterville - good offense that could score points but no defense that could apply pressure, tackle or be in the right position. This year the defense appears to be real, and the jury is still out on the offense. However, week-to-week each side of the ball may play a different role in the outcome of the game but they can be complimentary to one another.

Some 90s names of the past on there. DeMarco McCleskey was probably my favorite UC running back until Isiah Peed. David Small was the first Bearcat football player I can remember really cheering for at football games "Give it to Small!" Robert Cooper and Daryl Royal both had nice runs with UC.

Warren's 35 carries in a game is tied for 9th most in school history:

1.Steve Cowan v. Ohio (‘70) 45
2.DeMarco McCleskey v. ECU (‘98) 41
3.Lloyd Pate v. Wichita St (’67) 39
4.Robert Cooper v. Miami U. (’99) 37
5. Robert Cooper v. Memphis (’99) 36
Daryl Royal v. Miami (OH) (’96)
Reggie Taylor v. Miami (OH) (’86)
David Small v. Toledo (’93)
9.Reggie Harrison v. Ohio (’73) 35
DeMarco McCleskey v. UH (’98)
Michael Warren v UCLA (’18)

Some 90s names of the past on there. DeMarco McCleskey was probably my favorite UC running back until Isiah Peed. David Small was the first Bearcat football player I can remember really cheering for at football games "Give it to Small!" Robert Cooper and Daryl Royal both had nice runs with UC.

Kind of surprised McCleskey was only on there once and George Winn didn't end up on that list,

George’s high was 30 carries. He caught a number of passes out of the backfield in a game as well so it seemed like a lot more. Looking at this list it puts Warren’s feat in an ever better light IMO

RE: Big Hoss Iron Truck: Michael Warren II
Looking at the radar map and the weather outside, today is a day where a running legend can be born. Hopefully Mr. Warren is healthy as he will likely get chance to be a hero two weeks in a row. In this weather great to have a northern ohio rb!

On some injury report web sites I saw Doaks was listed as "questionable" with a shoulder injury. FWIW.
