alright, there are 3 things that worry me about this game:

1. short week - do our boys fly up wednesday?  if so, including sunday, that's only 3 days to prepare!

2. RU running attack - everyone knows our kryptonite is running the ball up the middle on our defense.  WVU runs side-to-side, and UCF runs up the middle with Kevin Smith, but their team just isnt talented.. Ray Rice lives off running up the gut.. matchup wise, it's got me worried.  Teel is becoming efficient.  They kind of remind me of the KC Chiefs or the SD Chargers the way they run up the gut and set up playaction down field.

3. away game - we usually play up-to or down-to our opponents on the road (FAU/Auburn, this year).. so, it will be close, and that worries me.

anyone else worried about these factors?

Agreed.  Teel is a heel.

Worried about Rice but we will embarrass Teel.

well, Rice usually sets up Teel.

of course....at this point, we need to be a little worried every week.  we have a huge target on our back.  although i will say we adjusted to the ucf running game fairly quickly.

1.  They have a short week to prepare also.  And we have a THREE dimensional offense.

2.  We didnt have film on Rice last year like we will now.  We will be better prepared.

A little extra:  Temperature is gonna be a high of 71 and low of 56.  NO COLD

Yes but I am not worried about play action.  Our coaches will have the secondary ready for it and we have the best CB tandem in the country.

There is really only one game left that worries me -- Cinci.  I know we can lose any game left, but I don't think we will.  I am not worried about Rutgers.

Of course it wouldn't hurt if someone told Leavitt that Rice insulted one of our player's mothers. ;D

I don't think motivation will be a problem after the OT loss last year in our house and the nice little chant video to go along with it.  Someone mentioned in another thread that vid should be on repeat on the flight and I don't imagine that is too far from reality.
