10 would imply a field goal.

I suspect our score will be a multiple of 6. (Hopefully many multiples.)

Glad to be wrong so soon.

Ricatelli makes the 25-yard FG! Bloom the Brilliant brought in McCaffery to hand off to Myers, who made a good 3rd-down run up the middle to set it up at the 8 yard line.

I miss Hatfield period!

Imagine a Hatfield offense and a Brian Smith defense.

Agree … but it is to Rice’s great benefit! So weird to see Rice have such competent defenses the past few years.

Just makes it even more apparent Brian Smith should be the HC.

The key phrase there is *even more apparent.*

It only works if we make FG’s and the defense holds up. Time will tell. Rice’s offense looks so boring, unimaginative, and chicken, as it has for the last many years. Rice’s offenses under a Bailiff were better (damning with faint praise for Bailiff).

That's now Schuman and Chamberlain, two starters and important players, down and injured.

And Chamberlain needs a cart, which means he's done for the game. Really gonna see our depth tested soon.

Try to bring Hat down from the stands?

(Isn't the former Arkansas All-American at the game?)

Let's go!!! What a read.

And then my excitement immediately vanishes once I realize that Bloomgren is sticking with Green, despite him being considerably worse so far than McCaffrey.

Arkansas is trying to give this one away. Lots of penalties and stupid mistakes. Wish we could capitalize.

I would fire Bloomgren at the half if I was in charge. He is an inconceivably bad handler of the offense. Who the f*** would want to play in this offense, where your coach literally changes QBs in the middle of drives for no apparent reason?

Defense is playing their asses off against an SEC team and being completely let down by their coaches. I can't even blame Green or McCaffrey. Who the heck could operate effectively with this shuffling?

Just disgusting. What a waste of a defensive effort. Expecting to win with D only like the Marshall game is nuts.
