We need to keep this close at halftime. If we can do that, I like our chances. That was our problem with UGa and UK. They jumped on us early.

This game is winnable. These are things that I think we can do based on what I’ve seen from them this year.

1. Force Mond to make mistakes. Overall he has good numbers but he’s been just ok since that big Clemson game. I think our secondary can force him to make a couple bad throws. Interested to see the matchup between Fenton and Kendrick Rodgers.

2. Use the screen game. I’m surprised we haven’t seen the screen game more often when we’ve struggled to run the ball. We called it twice against Missouri and it worked well both times (perfectly to Dowdle on 3rd down). Could be very effective when you know you struggle to run and going up against a good defensive front.

3. Throw it to the TE/throw seam routes. Watching their games this year, teams have success throwing it to the TE that’s running up the seam. They don’t like covering the middle of the field.

4. Don’t lose the 1st quarter. You don’t even have to be in the lead, just don’t do anything stupid in the first quarter. Keep the crowd in the game.

5. Red Zone D. This one is pretty obvious. Hold them to field goals. When the field gets smaller, make Mond throw for the TD (see no. 1). If it comes down to field goals, I like our chances. Their kicker is 6/9 on field goals. They have a hell of a punter but they’ve missed some field goals.

I just can’t see how we win this outside of forcing a lot of turnovers.

USC can’t stop the run nor run the football
aTm averages 220 yards a game on the ground and gives up less than 100.

This is a terrible, terrible matchup.

I have to give credit where it's due, even if it's weird credit. I don't like it when fans count us out before the game is played, but at least your posts don't come across as someone who basically hopes the team will lose just so they can boast about being right. That crap annoys me more than just about anything else.

Tough match up for sure. The real issue would be Mond running off passing plays. Have to have a spy, BAW? Their Pass D is not very good, so Bentley needs to be sharp. Will be interesting for sure, but this is also AMs first road game of the season, should help us.

I never pick against us, so hoping for a close hard fought W.

Maybe we will catch a break and Jimbo will out-think himself. He had a history of doing that at FSU where he would have games where his playcalling was highly suspect. If he is smart, like we all think he is, he is going to feed Williams the football and take shots down the field off playaction because chances are Fenton and Nixon are going to shit their pants and tackle a receiver before the ball gets there.

Me either!!! I don't understand so called fans/supporters picking us to lose and big. The guy who posted after you did - no hope type - I guess would just forfeit, if given choice.

Each team has glaring mismatches. Whoever is able to expose those the best will win the game. I'm with everybody else though - I can't pick against us.

This game is simple. Run the ball and stop the run. Unfortunately, 2 of our biggest weaknesses (running the ball and stopping the run) line up with two of their biggest strengths (stopping the run and running the ball).

I’m hopeful but don’t really see a way for us to win this game. Champ’s analysis of the run defense is that there really isn’t anything they can fix. We have been gashed on the ground for nearly 800 yards by UGA, UK and Mizzou, and A&M runs the ball just about as well as all of them.

Not sure how realistic it is to get hopes up that we have figured out run defense and how to run the ball since last Saturday.

Hope I’m wrong.
