    Default Bearcats and Bronchos

    Bearcats are heading to the beautiful Edmond, OK to play the Bronchos this week. If you haven't made the trip it's a great trip to make and a great city.

    NW has had some close games with UCO in the past. UCO this year looks to air the ball out more than running it which if they can hit on some big plays they can give NW a game. The UCO run defense looks to be struggling which NW has been handing the ball off this year more than the last few years.

    I'm looking forward to the game!

    Looking forward to our 4th trip to UCO. For those making the trek The Garage has great burgers/fries/cold beer and Ted’s Escondido Cafe is great Mexican food.

    We had a Ted's in Liberty. It lasted as long as the Ft. Hays run atop the MIAA.

    Correct on both counts. There is also Zarate's which has a little more Central/South American flavor. O'thellos which has good Italian, and I've heard good things about Taziki's Mediterranean Cafe. We can't compete with KC on BBQ so I won't mention those places.
    Go Bronchos!

    Which, consequently, lasted as long as HookedonTurd's relevance on this message board.

    Pop over and help me unload a truck and trailer full of toys after the game :) Wish I was getting in a day sooner.

    Given the issues that UCO had containing Cade Brister, I think Wright will have a great day. Especially when you consider how much more support he has in the running game than the Lions give Brister.

    Defensively, I think UCO has the potential to hit on big plays, but NW won't let it get out of control like LU did. Aside from the big hits, LU did a good job of slowing down the UCO offense. They only had 17 first downs in the game vs. LU's 30. NW's veteran leadership, and championship pedigree will find ways to adjust.

    I'll be shocked if NW gives up 24 points. Last time a NW team gave up 24 points was garbage time against NSU on 10/15/2016. After that you have to go back to 10/24/2015. It'll happen eventually but I'd place my money on Pitt State or Central Missouri on the team to hit 24 points against NW. NW has only given up 24 points 5 times since the start of the 2014 season. One of them in a playoff loss to UMD. 4 MIAA opponents in 49 MIAA games. If you add 2013 to it only 5 MIAA games over 24 points in 59 MIAA games. 6 MIAA games over 24 points in 69 MIAA games if you go back to 2012. 2011 was the last year that NW really gave up multiple 24 point games in regular season. They had 3 games go over 24 points then.

    The best steaks are at Cattlemen's a few miles west on 1-40 in what we call "Stockyard City."

    Correct on the Ted's Crappy Mexican...was nothing more than melted velveeta on some stale chips. The one in Overland Park vacated as well.

    NW Pass D looks a little worse than years past, but they'll stunt and rattle that Frosh QB like Pitt Did. Especially if they can stop the run with 6 or 7 like they usually do.

    UCO will have trouble finding the end zone, imo.

    Correct-a-mundo...We don't have very good D-backs.

    Lane and Chama aren't bad, it's the safety spot that has taken hits with injuries and is the biggest issue on giving up the big play currently. That may be by design, take away the run, the short and mid field and make a team try to beat you over the top. That being said I think it's likely injuries at the safety spot and a little less pressure on the QB as the reasoning why this year.

    It seems like the front and back end are tied together so tightly, it's hard to tell where the issue is sometimes.

    Not buying it. I have seen the D backs in a consistent "What the heck are we doing" state of mind the past 3 games. If Jack Richards is leading the pack, then there needs to be a change.
