    Week 1 vs UTSA
    UTSA 24 - Aztecs 21

    Passing: Dingwell- 17/24/234, Td
    Rushing: Muema- 15/43, 2 td
    Receiving: Hazely- 4/8
    Defensive: MLB Fely- 8 tackles

    In Coach Flores first game as a head coach, the Aztecs were very sloppy of offense and horrible on defense. UTSA looked like they were a top ten team. Aztecs D could not stop the Roadrunners and that prove to be the difference in the game. Coach was asked after the game how he felt, "what a disappointment today, we will get better and you can take that to the bank".

    [​IMG] 38 VS 10 [​IMG]

    Heading into the Sun Belt newcomer Georgia State was nerve racking for the Hawaii Rainbows and new head coach Erik Sutton. However, a few minutes into the first quarter things began to settle down and the Rainbows established a small settlement in the opposing endzone. Three minutes into the game Jr. QB J. Higgins would connect with Ammon Barker and make it a 7-0 lead. The rest of the first quarter was more or less comprised of both teams trying to get a a feel for one another and attempting to decaptitate the opposing quarterbacks.

    With about three minutes gone in the second quarter Wiggins would find another target after connecting with Chris Gant for a twelve yard score and 14-0 lead. The real story however was the emergence of the Rainbow running attack that had accumulated nearly one hundred yards by halftime. Perhaps more suprising than the smashmouth Rainbows offense was the agressive and unrelenting defense that shutout a fairly creative Georgis State offense and seemed poised to run all over the opposition all afternoon.

    Suprisingly, in the third quarter the Rainbows began to get a bit complacent and started to allow the underdogs back into the contest albeit slowly. GSU took the ball and drove down the field for a thirty five yard field goal and cut the Rainbow lead to 14-3. After a physical drive that chewed up nearly two minutes of the third quarter, Hawaii once again marched into the endzone on a two yard run up the middle for a 21-3 lead.

    The Rainbows finally proved just how dominant they can be in the fourth quarter when after only 58 seconds they found the endzone on yet another rushing touchdown that would lead to a 28-3 lead. The GSU offense was not prepared to surrender however, roughly 2 minutes later connecting on a twenty four yard touchdown pass that lead to a 28-10 score. The Rainbows would not allow themselves to become content and connected on a twenty seven yard field goal which brought the lead to 31-10. After stopping the GSU offense late in the fourth quarter coach Sutton decided to put in the second team. This move came to be a genius plan after backup running back Steve Lakalaka scampered into the GSU endzone on a thirty six yard touchdown run.

    TOLEDO 14 ULM 16

    Coach Rouse was not able to hide his absolute disgust with his teams performance week 1 losing to ULM in what can only be described as a sloppy disgraceful performance from an unprepared football team. Toledo didn't seem to want to win constantly throwing away opportunities in a close game by dropping passes on offense, dropping ints on defense, fumbling the football etc. The team seemed completely distracted. Reporters asked Rouse if he thought maybe they were looking past their week 1 opponent, his response...." I sure as hell hope not...this team isn't good enough to look past ANYONE. Hell ULM seemed to know our playbook better than we did!"

    Too little, too late

    Air Force - 35
    Navy - 41

    Air Force's five turnovers were just too much for a 4th quarter surge where the Falcons scored 21 points to bring a 14-31 deficit within six. Air Force was lead by QB Kale Person who went 18 of 24 through the air for 340 yards but two interceptions to only one touchdown toss. Kale Pearson was responsible for four turnovers total, two of which were fumbles that gave Navy the ball on their Air Force's 20 yard line where Navy would soon capitalize both times. RB Jon Lee had a big game, carrying the rock 7 times for 38 yards and one touchdown as well as hauling in 8 passes for 173 yards. Broam Hart led the rushing attack with 45 yards on seven carries and a touchdown. The Air Force defense struggled to stop Navy's triple option as they were gashed for 269 yards on the ground and 370 total yards of offense. The Falcon's struggled to get off the field on third downs where they allowed Navy to convert on nine 3rd downs.

    The 2013 season started off on a bitter note for the University of Miami Redhawks. The story of the game was turnovers. Miami had four and Marshall turned the ball over only once.

    Coach Robbins' debut as head coach was not as he imagined and addressed that in his post game press conference, "I wouldn't care if it was my fiftieth game as head coach. That was an ugly display out there. There's no excuse for turning the ball over that many times. I can understand being excited for the first game of the season, but we were just playing careless football. You can't win games when you turn the ball over four times, plain and simple."

    The first three Redhawk drives resulted in turnovers. On the opening drive the Hawks had begun to move the ball and had a second and 5 at midfield when quarterback Austin Boucher (No relation to Bobby Boucher) was sacked and fumbled the football. Boucher would go on to throw an interception on the next two drives. This lead to 17-0 Marshall lead at the end of the first quarter.

    The Redhawks finally began to maintained possession of the football in the second quarter, but Thundering Herd quarterback Rakeem Cato continued to carve up the Red and White defense on the ground. Marshall maintain a 17 point lead as both teams entered the half at 27-10.

    It was Cato's turn to throw an interception on Marshall's opening drive in the second half. The Hawks cut the lead to 10 on the next possession, but just could not get the Marshall offense off the field when they desperately needed stops.

    The final Miami turnover came in the fourth quarter when the Redhawks were down ten trying to mount another comeback. Boucher had moved his team into scoring position at the Marshall thirty yard line. On a third and four play Boucher dropped back and could not find an open receiver. The pass rush caught up to him and he fumbled the football again. Defensive end Jeremiah Taylor scooped up the fumble and dashed all hopes of a comeback as he trotted into the endzone.

    Miami would add an "excuse me" score at the end of the game. "There are more things to learn from a loss than a win, and we have plenty to learn from this tape. I would have like to run the ball more, but after falling behind so quickly we had to pass more than usual. If there's one thing we can learn from this game it's that we know that we have a quarterback that can throw the ball very well when he's making the right decisions and that's something to build on for the rest of this season," said Coach Robbins in his final statement.

    The Miami Redhawks travel to face #18 Boise State next week.

    In Coach Gemmabelli's first game as head coach of the Ohio Bobcats the difference was the turnover ratio.

    Although the score was 70-35, the headcoach admitted that the outcome did not reflect how close the game actually was.

    "We scored two touchdowns defensively. Take those away and give them to the offense and all of the sudden we'd be looking at a one score game."

    Considering that Ohio only out gained ODU 537-486, Gemmabelli seems to be on the right track as far as stressing to his players that they keep their egos in check.

    Ohio's rushing attack was dominant. The Bobcats rushed for 392 yards and had 5 different players score on the ground.

    Tyler Tettleton passed for 145 yards and two tds on just 9 attempts, while rushing for another 146 yards and one touchdown

    The Bobcats forced 4 turnovers while surrendering 0, which truly proved to be the difference in a game that was more evenly matched than the final score suggests

    San Jose State Spartans Overcome Four INTs to win 45-28 behind Two Return TDs

    In this season opener against UMass, the Spartans looked to start the season off strong and did they with Hightower taking the opening kickoff for a TD to give the Spartans and early 7-0 lead. Umass answered quickly with Wegzyn behind the helm and was able to move down the field on the Spartans rather easily. Quickly, Wegzyn hit Long in the slot of a 42 yard TD to tie up the game. With already 7 points on the board for the Spartans before the offense got on the field, Fales was able to drive down against a weak umass defense until Fales looked to hit the TE and was picked off by the MLB. Umass looked to capitalized and was able to do so driving the filed with woodley punching it in for 4 yards to take the 14-7 lead.

    In the 2nd quarter, Fales shook off the initial pick of the game and got within the 10 yard line for the potential tying score, but Fales tried to sneak a ball between three defenders and was picked off in the endzone. Luckily for the Spartans, Umass could not capitalize and was forced to punt. After Fales added a 3rd pick in the in the 1st half with Spartans providing another stop, Fales got into the groove and was able to drive the field behind the running of Ervin slashing his way through the dline and hitting the corners with his speed. The run game set up a 29 yard pass from Fales to Carr for a 29 yard TD pass to tie the game at 14-14. Wegzyn who was efficient all day finishing with 3 TDs and over 200 yards answered back putting together a nice drive using the no huddle and hitting his receivers setting up an 8 yard screen pass to give Umass the lead once again 21-14 before the half. Quickly, the Spartans installed the option with Gray and the running of ervin to move the ball before half, Gray was able to punch it in to tie the game before half time with a 9 yard scamper.

    The 2nd half was all Spartans as they built on the momentum from the late 2nd half score starting off with another return by Hightwoer, but this time for an 83 yard punt return to give the Spartans a 28-21 lead. The Spartans defense clamped down finally after having issues in the first half and forced the first turnover by picking off Wegzyn and stuffing the run game. The Spartans added another TD pass to Carr for 52 yards, a 13 yard pass to Grigsby and a FG to give the Spartans the opener 45-28 win.

    After a slow start, Fales finished with 3 TDs and 4 ints throwing 12/18 for 199 yards. Ervin finished with 140 yards rushing to help the Spartans control the clock in the 2nd half.

    Spartans have a tough matchup next week against #3 ranked Stanford. Should be fun

    [​IMG]Falcons roll despite losing two stars. [​IMG]
    Bowling Green opened the 2013 season with a 14 point victory over Texas State. The falcons looked pretty impressive coming out of the gate, despite playing without two of their biggest offensive weapons, QB Matt Schilz and RB Anthon Samuels. Samuels was suspended prior to kick off for violating unspecified team rules. Coach Ray Davis was quoted saying "Anthon is one of our most important players, but its very important for our guys to understand that no one is above the standards and morals of this university and coaching staff.
    Schilz did start for the Falcons and got out to a hot start, he began the game 4/6 for 40 yards before leaving the game with a concussion in the first quarter, but his back up Matt Johnson came in and had the game of his career, throwing for 334 yds on 13/19 passing and 2 td's. The falcons also did well running the football, lead by 2nd string HB Andre Givens whose 22 carries for 76 yds and 2 tds helped diversify the Falcon offensive attack.
    Defense was another story as the Falcons couldn't seem to stop Texas State's rushing attack. The Bobcats rushed for 196 yards as a team. "We have got to do a better job of stopping the run" said Coach Davis, "Everyone knows that football is a game won in the trenches and we have got to do a better job of controlling that facet of the game."
    Bowling Green looks to improve on their winning ways and pick up their first conference win next week. when they face the Kent State Golden Flash.

    Utah State vs. East Carolina
    Reporting live is Buzz Goodyear. On a day full of promise and a packed house at Merlin Olsen stadium. The Aggies stink up the place in the first half only have 55 yards of total offense and the defense not being able to stop the hurry up. East Carolina rolls out to a 21-0 lead to start the second half. The Pirates score in the first quarter and put two more touchdowns on the board in the second quarter. Sidenote( no stats for this game since my XBOX froze after I tried to upload my amazing highlights)
    Second half the Aggies get the ball and drive down the field and score 21-7. But couldn't stop the Pirate offense on this day they take the ball down the field and score another touchdown to end the third quarter down 28-7. The Aggies put up 13 in the fourth quarter in mop out duty. Sidenote( Went for two on the PAT and there was a flag on the play for defensive pass interference and don't get a chance to try for two again. Does this make sense to anyone? Aren't you suppose to get another chance at the PAT?) Anyhow the Pirates instead of kneeling the ball down they score another touchdown and the final score 38-16 Pirates.
    The offense started to move the ball down the field in the second half and had no offense in the first half at all. Coach Moss stated after the game. " We can't come out sluggish in the first half because if we do we will be down a bunch every game and we don't like have to play catch up it takes us out of the rhythm of the game."
    Next up for the Aggies is a visit to play the Air Force in the home opener for the Air Force and the MWC opener for both teams. Air Force comes off a humbling lose to the Navy and no one wants to go down 0-2 to start the season. This game will be a battle and hopefully the Utah State offense will come alive and sustain the confidence to play the entire game strong.
    Goodnight everyone Buzz Goodyear keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars. Will you stop that Casey Kasam.
