    Default Pitt State at Lindenwood

    Pitt comes in unblemished and will not resemble the team that the lions upset last year in CSS. I'm sure there will be plenty of reminders this week about last year.

    Lindenwood is certainly improving, especially in the offensive side. They took it to one of the statistically better defenses in the league yesterday. There 2 losses came against teams that have knocked off top teams in the conference. They also seem to be improving every game.

    This will be the toughest test yet for the lions. I'll have more thoughts later, but wanted to get this fired up!

    Just looking through the stats I found something that is very concerning if you are a lions fan. Pitt State is leading the conference in sacks with 19. Meanwhile Lindenwood has given up the second most sacks of any team. That's not something you want to see as a Lindenwood fan.

    Pitt is going to a place where they haven't lost a game. That should be concerning too.....

    This Pitt team has a lot to fix, but they are physical and just plain nasty in that old school way. If Elwood wants to beat Pitt they're going to have to crawl around in the primordial ooze, gouge some eyes, maybe bite off an ear or 2.

    On the other hand, this will be the best offense the Pitt defense has seen. They have the speed to match that of the Pitt defense and give them some problems, so as always, it'll be settled in the trenches. That's where Pitt will have to shine.

    On the other side of the ball, Pitt will have to find itself. I don't think a td per quarter is gonna win this one.

    I fear we will get way too one dimensional with Bradbury. The kid only completed passes on a flag routes and a short crossing pattern that I recall. The flag route to Hardin was wide open every time it was thrown.

    Give him a week in the offense as "the guy". Weimers will open it up with him. The kid is a winner and that will carry a team a long way. LU isn't a good defensive team. We just need to establish something then run off it. Haven't done that yet this year.

    I'll bet we will be fine.

    I will hope and pray that you recover from your injuries. After reading this, it is apparent to me that sometime over the weekend you fell and hit your head. Cheers to a speedy recovery!

    They have let him pass in other games. I think the gp was gonna be the same no matter who was back there against unk.

    They do allow him to run it a little more than jrod.

    Ha ha ha....thank you.

    Open it up meaning more than he did Saturday.

    I like that we are running more than passing. Our Oline needs to step up and get a better push more consistently.

    I honestly don't see how he can open anything up when a working base hasn't been established.

    Just heard Beck say they could have played roderique in the second half if they needed do. Sitting him was strictly precautionary. But apparently he is okay.

    Could possibly open things up over the top? Who are they going to put on Henneman?

    Not sure about henneman. Not worried about over the top. Takes too long.

    Good point. Goes back to the sacks thing and LU giving up a bunch of them. I don't think all of those are on the OL though. Brister scrambled himself into some of those sacks. You have to take the bad with the good in that case because there were plenty of times where he scrambled himself out of trouble and into making a play to extend the drive.

    Taking a closer look at Pitt's ridiculous sack total so far, 76% of their sacks are coming form Defensive linemen/defensive ends. Of those sacks almost 2/3 of them are coming from 2 guys, Jeffcoat and Morris; both of the defensive ends. Our tackle spots have been a little in flux over the first 4 games. We started the year off with the twin towers for Flynn-Sanders and Green as the bookends (both 6'8" 300+ lbs) but ended up kicking veteran Lucas Bedow out to the LT side and inserting true freshman Blake Rogenhoffer on the RT side. I feel pretty confident with Bedow, as he's one of the better OL in the conference. Blake will be in that conversation sooner rather than later but this will be his biggest test by far. There was some mixing and matching going on vs. ESU. Not sure if that was a performance issue or due to injuries. I like the size and physicality the 2 bigger tackles bring, but Morris and Jeffcoat are 218 and 200 lbs and bring an amount of speed and athleticism that could make it tough for them to get out and handle them in space.

    LU will probably need to move the pocket and run a lot of RPO in order to keep them off balance.

    If we can get some time, Henneman is good enough to hurt anyone in the conference and has proven to be Cade's favorite target over the 1st 4 games, although he is gaining confidence in his other targets as well.

    I worry about the quick hitters and crossing stuff from Lindenwood. It takes a lot of the blitz options away from the D.

    I haven't noticed that they do a lot of that as much now. That seemed to be more of a Patrick Ross type offense. They do like to hit RBs on flares out of the backfield. but this is much more of a vertical attack than what they've done in years past were they tried to stretch defenses across the field.
