Racers vs. Peay

Post by A_1985_grad »

Today is not making a good case for football to hold up a conference move, if that's what's happening. Gotta be better than this in OVC play, but it's looking like .500 is our ceiling.

This was the least prepared Racers team I have seen in a while. It is like they don’t even care. I don’t care that they had an extra week or t is a damn rivalry game.

The team embarrassed themselves and the university today. Season over - on to basketball.

Goal going forward is to salvage a winning season which is still possible. Not sure what happen to this defense from last season. I am staying positive about the football program. The defense was a major issue prior to Hood arrival and he is still getting his guys there. He won at EKU and he will get it done here.

One big difference from spring to fall is we are not causing turnovers like we did then. Bad qb play allow teams to stack the box

Anything above non-scholarship Pioneer league is a waste of resources if that is what is holding up a move, though I can’t be certain that is it, I wouldn’t doubt it. So obvious it’s slapping us in face the reason with the move to MVC is being held up if you think about it. IDGAF if it’s more expensive than OVC, the logic is crazy easy to “get”.

I don't understand how our team can out-play the #4 team in FBS football for 3 straight quarters and then perform like we have been performing ever since.

We have some good running backs in the OVC but I'll guarantee you can't give up 250 yards rushing alone and expect to win ball games.

Is it just me or does it look like we're regressing instead of progressing?

I hate to be that guy but past performance is a terrific indicator of future results.

We are regressing. We’ve seen it in basketball too a couple seasons. Not sure what the issue is but it’s blatantly there.

A disgusting display on both sides of the ball.

We are who we thought we were...

Maybe the big homecoming week announcement we’ve been hearing about is that we aren’t going play decent football anymore this year.

And picking a horrible time.

I can't quite figure out what the problem is.

I know early on, most of our woes were due to turnovers by the QB, but our Defensive Metrics were very high on both Run and Pass Defense.

Lately, however, it seems anyone can run as much as they want against us.

I knew Geno Hess (SEMO) was a stud but Snead (APSU) had 132 yards rushing( averaged 28 going into the game) and Tanner (APSU) rushed for 148 yards ( averaged 76 going into the game). :bang:

Are we running a different defense? Someone missing their assignments? Did we have injuries to some key defensive players? Did Austin Peay and Southeast Missouri State get some All-American linemen transfers just before playing us?

It doesn't make sense! :shrug:
