    Default Winona State Warriors 2018 Season Thread

    Time to get the discussion started for the season.

  2. Default Re: Winona State Warriors 2018 Season Thread

    Sorry for the late response, but here is my opinion on WSU for them to continue last seasons success....

    QB Play: Burke was the backup most of last year. He will have to be more accurate with his passing game.

    RB: Birth, Roebuck, SSL...Birth will be the go to but the next two should see plenty of time..I am baffled that SSL(Sam Santiago-Lloyd) doesnt see the field more...my guess would be his quickness may not be at the d2 level but size is?

    WR: Frandsen, Gran, Balliu,Claussen...Frandsen will put up the numbers, but WSU will need others to show up...

    TE: Rooney,schleicher...rooney will be the #1 target in this group, i may change analysis once more games are played.

    OL: will need to do a better job of protecting the QB, past years with Sawyers teams this has been a huge factor on how they play..need to keep QB1 healthy all yr long

    Def: Have plenty of experience and size at both DL and Linebacker positions..but continued pressure will be needed with big departures in the secondary from last year.

    Kicking and Special teams: Russell returning punter and Ortiz(junior) comes from California, so he should have some experience in big moments in games

    The number has fallen over the years. Still a few more on the basketball side, but it's pretty limited here on the football board.

    I'm sure Winona folks know about this....but if not, here is the Tom Sawyer Show. I wish each school had something like this....and Coach keeps things interesting.

    Generally speaking here... overall are there more posters on the football board or basketball? I mostly only read football threads.

    It depends on the sport that school tends to do well in. For example, you get many more comments from USF fans for football. Augie tends to be much more for basketball.

    They do have a number of starters out but should be OK for this Saturday. It is next Saturday which will be the problem. We beat USF with a number of starters out from week 1 and a few more early in the game. Other kids are going to need to pick it up since a number of the injuries are out for the season.

    Yes, but i'm not going to post Winona's injury report online. We won last week with a lot of backup players and just hope they improve when they get more playing time...

    Fair enough, but most of it will become public soon so the wait won't be long.

    When watching the webcast of the game, Coach Tom Sawyer came back to the training table in the middle of the game....had a emotional embrace with Pridgeon....which immediately gave me the impression this wasn't just a sprain. It looked like a head coach who found out news that his 2 time captain had possibly played their last game. I have zero proof....but you just don't see that very often between possessions during gameplay. If so, kudos to Coach Sawyer for showing that type of concern for his captain.

    I saw that exact same thing and remarked to my wife that he must be done for at least the season. For the head coach in the middle of a game to come back and hug a kid, I knew it was likely a very serious injury.

    The Warrior's post-season hopes are on-the-line this weekend with the Bulldogs in town. Wish I could see this game with the Warrior defense fully healthy (but almost no team is fully healthy this time of year), but if they can step up and slow down UMD, I think they can steal this one.
