Kansas State is the first victim of the Mean Green March

… or so we hope.

Number 2 versus number 15. Remember when I said that all you had to do was believe? Feels awesome don’t it? Keep believing buddy!

The Matchup:

So our opponent is revealed: Kansas State. I won’t bore you with an extensive breakdown. There is a huge disparity in talent, of course. But there is also a huge disparity in expectations, money, support, history, coverage …

What does all that matter? Not a damn thing.

We can beat these guys. It may take heroic efforts from the squad. It may take a perfect, ‘Nova-type game to get a dubya but dammit, it’s possible.

I am excited for this run. I cannot wait for Thursday. It is our time. We’ll get the hard matchup out of the way first and then move on to the lesser seeds.

GMG.

  1. For me, it's honestly just play-calling diversity. I feel like when youp lay our offense, it is the Super Tecmo Bowl playbook, but with a coach who really only favors half the pass and run options. Sure, things might hit if the defense gets bored, but a team with equal or greater talent can always control what we do. The TE and FB thing is a grasp at trying to express this, but every time I read that, I sumperimpose the words "do something different, you crazy pig-fucker!" mostly because I am offensive and that is a term of endearment in my family.

  2. Yeah. I can't argue with that. I think formation and personal -wise he is full spread but he doesn't put it all to use. It's kinda like an empty threat: "Here are our four wide receivers. We are gonna throw it on ya– wait– its just another screen!" The big thing about spread Os were that they were breaking new ground by attacking all over the field … but we attack horizontally and that is it.

    Perhaps its because of our personnel but that is PapaDodge's problem to solve isn't it?
