Come on Cam.
Another game, same result. When will the streak end? As usual, our defense started slow against the Flacons but finished adequate. Our offense started slow and finished with a new quarterback. I am so confused to where this team should be because in my mind and just looking at the schedule, we should be 3-2 at this point. But I'm delusional though. I think this team is thinking they are still in spring practice.
A couple of good things did come out of this contest. McPeek looked fairly solid for not having any play time for the past couple of years. He did throw a couple of interceptions but that's to be expected when you're down 21 points and you're forced to the throw the ball.
Pete Kontodiakos is a punting machine, crushing three 50+ yard punts. On the other hand, we are punting all the time so I hope he can boot it that far to give our defense a chance to stop something.
Speaking of defense, the Ram eleven gave up 460 yards rushing. 460 YARDS RUSHING. Air Force's Cody Getz averaged 8.9 yards a carry. Words can't even explain my disgust of this stat. You might as well put some inexperienced fans on the field to try and make a tackle. 3-4 defense? More like 0-0 defense. Terrible.
Where do we go from here? Do we win another game this season? I guess we've got New Mexico and UNLV towards the end of the year but even then, the Rebels don't look as bad as past years. Another other thought is what's this going to do for the stadium issue? Will this 1-4 start detour any chance of putting a stadium on campus?
