The Official TBP In Game Thread: Bulls vs. SJSU Spartans

Recommended Posts

Most teams in college get off to rusty starts. Biggest improvement is usually between games 1and 2. 

Playcalling and execution was poor on the first 3 drives.

Defense looked much better. I like the aggressive defensive calls in key situations. 

Seemed like the OC  used the game to get to know his personnel. 

A few head scratchers...Salomon had a good first half. Was he even on the field in 2nd half?  DJ has proven to be one of, if not the best pass catcher on the field. Not one throw to him all game?

Lost opportunity to get Kean more passing opportunities and experience. Why not keep running the offense. They went into slow down mode in late 3rd and4th quarter. 

Once they got past the first 10 minutes  it really was more like we expected it to be. No team is going to score 60+ points everytime. After they settled down the offense was fine and defense played pretty well all game.

He's a mediocre passer

Scantling dropped one Wilcox dropped two and Barr dropped 2. All were great throws.

Game over. I knew my feelings about this game was legit. Whoever signed up for the opening game in Cali should be demoted. 

Pretty sure that would be your AD.  Explained at the tailgate how this came about but don't recall the details. Something about him knowing someone at SJSU and a chance for the kids to go to California.  Other than bowl games these are business trips. They don't get to sightsee or anything. Airport to hotel to practice (in the case for this game) to hotel to game to airport. Not like they get a chance to do to Disneyland.

True...the stats don't tell the tale.  I can't recall one duck (save the intentional grounding), and maybe one risky one to MVS.  The drops hurt, and killed drives.

His deep passes were mostly dead on.  The TD passes were perfection.

Footing was a major issue

The second Wicox drop was a great pass into a tight window. Best throw Q has ever thrown in a live game maybe.

Right, winning by 20 is just not going to cut it. Especially without at least adding a FG for that last drive to pad it. Sheesh.

Good night, I'm sure all the Bulls fans there are seriously relieved. I know I am.

That last drive we easily, and intentionally, left points on the field.  

Anyone looking at this objectively will see the team got caught flat footed and got behind early.  It could happen to any team but good ones respond the way we did.

I was annoyed at the beginning of the game because I wanted to sit back and watch an easy win but at no point did I think we were going to lose.  We were down by 16 with 6+ minutes in the 1st quarter.  We got punched in the mouth but SJST is a losing team that was just as shocked as the rest of us.  I knew (and they probably knew deep down) that we would come back.

Just so it's clear, my first comment above is pure sarcasm...except for being relieved at the recovery.

I think I created a new tumor with all the stress from the first Q, lol.
