So far, we've committed a penalty every 5.7 plays.

We'll have to tighten that up going forward.

Make that 1 penalty every 11 plays.

I forgot to include Cincy's plays. :oops:

Second string QB and skill players in and they’re paying us so I get that late pass.

Depending on the handicapper, the Racers are 32-36 point underdogs in this game.

ESPN says the odds of us winning this game is 6 in 1,000.

Things I would consider a success.....
(1) Keeping their 3rd Down Conversion Percentage below 50% While converting over 30% of our 3rd Downs.
(2) Getting a stop on any their 4th Down Conversion attempts.
(3) Keeping their Pass Completion below 70%
(4) Holding them below 30 First Downs while getting at least 20 of our own.
(5) Picking off at least 2 passes.
(6) Holding them below 300 yards passing.
(7) Getting in the Red Zone at least 3 times
(8) Holding them below 250 yards Rushing.
(9) Scoring more than 14 points.
(10) Holding them below 45 points.
(11) Getting at least 285 yards of Offense while Holding them below 550 yards.

This is what "I" would expect top-20 FCS teams to be able to do but it is very early in the season and there's not enough data to make anything more than a slightly educated guess.

I would be happy achieving 7 or more of these goals.

Here's hoping for a beautiful day, and an injury-free game for both teams!

Go Racers!!!

(1a) Cincy was 4-10 (40%) on 3rd down conversions. SUCCESS!
(1b) Murray State was 7-15 46.7%. SUCCESS!
(2) Cincy was 1-1 on 4th down conversions.
(3) Cincy was 15-25 on Passes. SUCCESS!
(4a) Cincy had 27 first downs. SUCCESS!
(4b) Murray State has 26 first downs. SUCCESS!
(5) We had 0 interceptions.
(6) Cincy had 261 yards passing. SUCCESS!
(7) Murray State was in the Red Zone twice.
(8) Cincy had 130 Rushing Yards. SUCCESS!
(9) Murray State had 7 points (but left 10 on the field). PUSH!
(10) Cincy had 42 points (Last fumble with 1:04 to play led to 7 points).
(11a) Murray State had 242 yards of Offense.
(11b) Cincy had 391 yards of Offense. SUCCESS!

I said I'd be happy with 7 successful categories.

Consider me happy!

I believe we are a top-20 FCS team!

I agree. Those types of things used to create some postgame controversy.If we were a power five school, instead of a FCS school, it would have today.

So what’s the take away from this. Will it change Cincinnati‘s rankings? Will it change ours? At the half it would have hurt them and helped us, but with the final score I would be surprised to see much movement either way.

hopefully people will look at the game as a whole and not just the final score.

It depends on the ranking systems' methodologies.

You are probably correct in that there won't be much movement overall, but I'd be surprised if ANY team that Cincinnati plays the rest of the year will limit them to 8 touches and 9 yards of offense over 18 minutes of play!

FWIW, Massey has Cincy climbing up 7 spots and the Racers falling 2 places.

Also, in the Massey Composite Ratings - as of this posting - Cincy is up one spot to #8 and the Racers are up 1 spot to #35, but only 10 systems are in for Cincy and only 5 for the Racers.
