Thanks guys - brownie points for both of you!
Iowa St. 17
Iowa was able to blow by their rivals despite turning the ball over 4 times. The new offense looked good, racking up 600 yards, but QB Zack Stevens needs to cut down on his 3 interceptions thrown. Stevens had a nice day running the ball, scoring 3 times, including a read option keeper that he took 47 yards to the house. On defense Iowa played very well, allowing only 10 points as ISU scored once on defense. The new offense worked pretty well vs. Iowa State, but it will need to prove it against better teams, since they don't have very good wide receivers.
Zack Stevens (QB)- 18-36 for 302 yards, TD, 3 INT, 15 carries for 83 yards, 3 TD
Travis Bradley (HB)- 10 carries for 47 yards
Ryan James (HB)- 9 carries for 152 yards, 2 TD
Charles Hartman (WR)- 5 receptions for 76 yards
Lost 61 38 to Ohio State F this game and this untackable runningbacks SMFH
that write up sucked hard.
Nerbaska Gets Big Win @ #1 Auburn
The Blackshirts looked like they were in midseason form this afternoon vs the Tigers of Auburn, as the unit forced 4 turnovers, including 2 returned for scores. The Nebraska offense was non existant in the first half with Patrick Fogle leading, so Coach Kasper made the switch to Larry King. King went a solid 5-12 for 83 yard and a pick, but he did a good job of orchestrating the offense. Freshman Joe Christian was ineffective; the speedster couldn't find any creases vs the experienced Auburn defense. Sophomore Jeremy Turner came in and looked like a seasoned veteran, running patiently and racking up 96 yards on 15 attempts, while also scoring twice including a nice 50 yard run. Senior Aaron McConnell led the receivers with 2 catches for 57 yards.
The big man on campus this week, however, is definitely ROLB Chris Burke. The all american out of Lead, South Dakota had a huge game, and provided the key spark to push Nebraska to he win. The Huskers were down 3-0 and Auburn was approaching the redzone again; a score here meant a 10-0 deficit on the road against the #1 team in the country. The senior linebacker leaped in front of a screen pass and took it 54 yards for the score. The very next drive, he knocked the snot out of the Auburn RB and DE Brigham Harris scooped and scored form 17 yards out. Transfer MLB Dre Treangen also had an impressive game in his debut, racking up 11 tackles, including 1 TFL. Burke finished with 7 tackles, 3 TFL, INT, and a FF. True freshman FS Larry Craft also had a pick, as well as junior CB AJ Sims.
Very happy with Big Red this week!
When will the advance happen Kasper?
Probably Sunday afternoon - I'm sure most of us will be busy for St. Patty's.. haha
Last year Clemson opened up regular season play with the #4 Fightin' Irish, this time they opened with a little weaker opponent #24 Oregon. There were a couple of new faces on offense since Coach Burgdorff decided to Red Shirt some of the players. Freshman QB Eric Harris, Freshman LT Brandon Lopez, and JUCO Transfer Junior RT Danny Peters put one the Orange and White for the first time and made immediate impacts. Harris was able to hook up with his WRs three times and run it in twice. Lopez and Peters was able to open the running lanes and protect their QB as Clemson gained 594 total yards on offense.
In the 1st Quarter the two defenses flexed their muscles only allowing a total of 3 points. In the quarter Oregon's Impact ROLB Aaron Young made an incredible one handed interception giving the Ducks great field position. Unfortunately the offensive line could not hold off Clemson's DT Omar Johnson and ROLB John Blair from sacking QB Eric Kirby twice and pushing them out of FG range. After having to punt back to Clemson, the Tigers opened up the 2nd quarter with 5 yard TD pass from QB Eric Harris to WR Chase Mangum. Being down 10-0 the Ducks came out in a no huddle to try and get some points on the board. QB Eric Kirby could not miss but due to a couple of runs for no gain and a drop by a WR the drive stalled out forcing a FG to be made. On the very next play from scrimmage Clemson struck again, this time off of a Read Option that went for a 69 yard TD run from QB Eric Harris. Again Oregon came out flying all over the field and this time cashing in from 35 yards out. On a blitz from the Clemson defense Kirby hooked up with RB Trevor Toth on a screen play for an easy TD. With a few minutes left in the half Clemson punched in one more score from FB Gary Davis. The score at halftime was 24-10 with Oregon receiving.
The Clemson defense came up huge in back to back drives by the Ducks. ROLB John Blair and DT Jonathan Miller caused two turnovers, one pick and one forced fumble, that put Clemson in an immediate position to score. On both occasions the Tiger offense scored very quickly. Both were passes from QB Eric Harris, hooking up with WR Lavelle Ostrander fomr 56 yards out and WR Jared Williams from 24 yards out. The 14 point explosion put Clemson up 38-10. After another disappointing drive by Oregon their defense step up again scoring off of a pick six. With a heavy blitz coming QB Eric Harris called a quick screen and paid for not letting it setup. Duck CB Anthony Harris stepped right in front of WR Jared Williams, picked it off and went in for a 53 yard TD. With the game still out of reach from the Ducks, Clemson started pounding the ball mercilessly. For the rest of the game Clemson scored from a 75, 63, 3, and 17 yard rushing TDs. By then the backups were in full swing on both sides of the ball. The defensive backups held Oregon to only 10 points finishing the game with a final score of 66-27.
Clemson prepares to host the Boilermakers of Purdue next week at Death Valley.
Attention all, can we try to keep scores sub 60?

Purdue locks down Notre Dame
The Boilermakers completely shut down the Irish offense for a 30-10 victory. Notre Dame's only touchdown came on an interception return. Outside of that, Purdue stifled them all game long. The Irish managed a total of 73 yards and 0-8 on 3rd downs. Meanwhile the Boilermaker offense pumped out 450 yards. It was tough sledding for Purdue RB Teddy Franklin as his 26 carries only gained him 62 yards. However, QB Joe Walker took the reins on this one as he went 22-30 for 388 yards, 3 TDs and just the one interception.
I was down in New Mexico until last night but I have a shit ton of midterms and papers to write this week so I'm on auto until Friday.
I retired for the week since I didn't have anytime to set up my recruiting board. I'll join back up on Thursday night.
