    Home field is no help for the mistake prone Hawkeyes

    Hawaii traveled to #15 Iowa in a week one matchup. Iowa was heavily favored coming into the game but didn't play like it from their very first possession. Iowa QB Jake Rudock committed the first of his three first half turnovers when he fumbled while being sacked, Hawaii would scoop up the loose ball and waltz into the endzone for a 7-0 lead. Iowa would struggle all day on offense, going 0-9 on third down tries and gaining only 228 yards of offense, 171 of which came on their two biggest plays of the day. The Hawkeyes defense played reasonably well but there wasn't much to do when Hawaii had such great field position for the most part.

    The Warriors offense didnt look as explosive as last seasons edition but was mistake free. Jay Leak completed 9 of 15 passes for 155 yards and 3 TDs with no turnovers in his first game as the starter. True freshman Larry Morton led the team in rushing, gaining 67 yards on 12 runs with 2 TDs. JUCO Transfer Chris Tate would catch 2 TD passes and gain 72 yards receiving. The Warriors defense would record 7 sacks on the day, led by 5th year senior OLB Tigi Hill, who had 2.5 sacks plus a fumble recovery for a TD.

    After it was all said and done, the Warriors had started the seaon with an impressive 56-10 road win over a ranked team.

    UCF- 49
    Louisville- 17

    The Knights shook off to early turnovers and an injury to starting RB to pour on 49 points as teh offense looked very effecient under teh new OC. QB Cronin threw for 446yds 4TD, 3 RB's eclipsed 50yds, WR's MacKeroy and Anderson led the wideouts with 100+yd rec. Huge user game against Maryland next week could dictate how far UCF can go this season...

    Sluggish Lobos Win Road Opener Over UTEP

    El Paso - Due to the surprising red-shirting of Namid Abdullah (formerly Caleb Wright), (RS) Senior Dustin Walton made his first career start in the season opener at UTEP. After the opening kickoff Walton drove his team right down the field on an 8-play scoring drive capped off by Bo Woods 5-yard run. Unfortunately for the Lobos that would be their only touchdown until there were just 56 seconds remaining in the game. UTEP on the other hand seems to have dumped either the HC or OC that brought in the fleXbox One and has returned to a more traditional offense. Thankfully for the Lobos, they are still about as inept with the ball as last season. UNM's two touchdowns, plus 3 field goals from true freshman Kevin Henderson were enough to propel the Lobos to a 23-14 win over the Miners. Woods, a Freshman All-American last year, was hampered by an early injury but still accounted for both TD's on the ground as he ran for 84 yards on 18 carries, and pitched in 59 receiving yards on the day. Walton will still be searching for his first collegiate touchdown next week as he was serviceable on the day going 14-27 for 218 yards and a pick. On his lone carry of the game, Woods backup, (RS) Junior Dwayne Pierce gained 3 yards and was knocked out of action for 3 weeks with a torn pectoral.

    Afterwards, beleaguered Head Ball Coach Nate Glory (Who clearly did not intend to still be at UNM entering his fifth season), stated "Well we won" When asked if he could follow up on that he replied, "Not really. I mean it was nice to come into the state of Texas and get a W, but we gotta do it again next week when when we go to Austin, and if we play like we did tonight then we probably won't score a goddamn point." Asked if he was happy with Walton's performance, Glory only said "I guess . . . I mean he's really all we have right now. Hopefully he'll get better, but he's going to need to do it in a hurry" The answer seemed to make it clear that Namid Abdullah isn't any closer to returning to the team. Finally Glory addressed the issue of Pierce going out with an injury, "We've got a 4 star recruit that didn't make the trip with us today by the name of Darron Davis. He's the fastest back on the team, and Bo was running on fumes at the end of that game so we might have to dress Darron out next week vs. Texas. Sometimes when you're at a school like New Mexico you just don't get the luxury of red-shirting players, or you know . . . building for the future . . . shit like that."

    Lobos Drop to Border Rivals Thanks to 4th Quarter Meltdown

    Austin- It's a great scene in Texas with the big ass drum and the big ass Longhorn (Bevo) and Lonestar magic is in the air. Perhaps Nate Glory shouldn't have soaked that in. Neither should have Senior Quarterback Dustin Walton who began the game by throwing a pick six. On the Lobos next drive, Sophomore HB Bo Woods was blown up and for the 2nd straight game, suffered a bruised sternum early. With the re-injury risk stated as high, in stepped true freshman Darron Davis who just had his redshirt lifted this week. All Davis did the first time he ever touched the ball was take a toss 81-yards for the score. Texas was undeterred and easily marched down the field before the UNM defense stiffened inside the 10 and they had to settle for a FG to increase the lead to 10-7. Apparently subbing Woods out at HB did not remove him from the Kick Return team. It's a good thing too, as he took the ensuing kickoff 103 yards to give the Lobos their first lead of the game 14-10 after one. The second quarter was full of punts before New Mexico puts a drive together into Texas territory before Dustin Walton throws a horrible pick. The Longhorns are able to turn it into 3 before the half as the Lobos took a 14-13 lead into the locker rooms.

    The second half opens up with UT faking a punt at their own 40, which UNM is able to capitalize on with a 9 play 60 yard scoring drive capped off by Bo Woods (now playing spottingly) 3rd down 3 yard run. New Mexico held a 21-13 lead over the #10 team in the nation into the 4th quarter. That's when shit hit the fan. Texas scores early in the 4th and gets the 2 point conversion to tie things up. On the first play of the next drive Walton is hit and fumbles. The very next play Texas throws a TD over the middle. The Lobos had gone from an 8 point lead to a 7 point deficit in the span of 11 seconds. New Mexico did drive into the red zone attempting to answer, but of course threw another interception. They forced UT into a 3rd and long but a reception deep over the middle would ice it for the Long Horns as they would score on that drive to make it 35-21, which would be the final.

    Dustin Walton only threw for 122 yards on 10-19 passing, and his stat line for the season now reads 0 touchdowns, 5 interceptions. Darron Davis did run for 125 yards on 15 carries, but 81 of those came on his first play. Nate Glory was so enraged at his team's 4th quarter play that his garbled garbled speech after the game was indecipherable through all the saliva and yelling coming out of his mouth. One reporter remarked, "I'm not sure of a single word he said, but I've never seen a blood vessel in someone's forehead come that close to bursting." Things don't get any easier next week for the 1-1 Lobos as an Arizona team that they shocked last year will be coming to Albuquerque looking for some revenge.

    Hawaii Hammers Boise on the Blue Turf
    Hawaii wins 51-28
    This game was all Hawaii in the first half as the Warriors led 27-0 at the break. Boise scored 28 points in the second half but was never really in this game. The most important moment of the game was when Hawaii QB went down with an injury in the third quarter. Leak was later diagnosed with a broken thumb and projected to miss three weeks of action. The player of the game for the Warriors was Senior tailback Will Gregory. Gregory 140 yards rushing and 2 TDs on just 13 carries and also returned a kickoff for a touchdown in this game. The rivalry win moves Hawaii to 2-0 with both wins against respectable teams on the road. Next week the Warriors host Stanford with their backup QB under center.

    Nobody told Stanford that their Hawaii vacation was for a football game
    Warriors win 55-0

    There was some concern coming into this matchup that Hawaii backup QB Levi Arnold wouldn't be up to the task of facing a Pac 12 defense. That concern seems silly in retrospect. Arnold looked good, completing 10 of his 15 throws for 136 yards and 2 TDs while the O-line kept his jersey clean all day long. Regardless, the Warriors didn't need Arnold to win this one. The defense was in top form shutting down the Stanford offense by holding them to just 111 yards of offense while forcing 3 turnovers and recording 3 sacks. In addition to the stellar play of the defense, the Hawaii rushing attack had a great game as well. Four ball carriers combined for 261 yards on 33 carries with 4 rushing TDs (one for each of them). In all this was a dominant performance for the Warriors as they continue to prove worthy of their national top 25 ranking.

    FIU Starts Strong, Beats Rice 51-17
    Coleman Continues Run of RB performances
    The FIU Golden Panthers started their 2015 season off strong demolishing Rice 51-17. Shane Coleman led the way with a 233 yard, 3 TD performance on just 12 carries (19.4 ypc). But perhaps the biggest area of improvement was from Sophomore signal caller Andrew Kelly. Kelly struggled with interceptions all last year. But he showed immediate improvement, throwing for 177 yards and no INT's (and no TD's as backup Lorenzo Hammond had one pass for one TD of 15 yards after Kelly was shaken up). "He's a lot more accurate than last year. Still gotta not overthrow on the crossing and more horizontal routes, but he's not blatantly missing open receivers now," said Baron.​

    UCF- 31
    Maryland- 10

    Evrything that could go right for the Knights did and everything that could go wrong for the Terps did. UCF got it done with the ground game as RB Jones runs for 192yds and QB Cronin made plays when needed especially on 3rd down. Maryland had trouble finding any rythim on offense and struggled all day moving the ball with only 3 first downs. 72yd TD run was thier lone highlight. GG Decay

    UCF- 35
    Houston- 39

    Got hit with the turnover bug. Wish I could play defense against the cpu!! Can't wait for this season to be over!!

    Team sucks. My fault for not recruiting well enough... but my team sucks.

    NM State - 31
    San Jose St - 10

    Good thing I can still beat a poor MWC team. Brandon Betancourt ran for 248 yards on 23 carries and 3 TD (after gaining only 39 yards in the first two games combined.)

    Hawaii Struggles Early and Pulls Away Late

    The Warriors came into the game as Heavy favorites but North Texas was unintimidated early on. The Mean Green stalled two first half Hawaii drives to force Field goals before giving up a TD while also intercepting 3 errant throws from Levi Arnold. North Texas would eventually put a TD on the board to make it a 13-7 game at the half. After a fumble, scoop, and score followed by a Hawaii TD drive the Warriors held a 27-7 lead going into the fourth quarter. Early in the fourth, North Texas got in the endzone to cut the margin to just 13, but Will Gregory took the ensuing kickoff 95 yards to paydirt. The Mean Green then threw an interception and Gregory quickly punched it in to make this a 41-14 game with 5 minutes left and clear the Hawaii bench. A TD by third string HB Ashton Scruggs gave the final margin. Hawaii starting QB Jay Leak is expected to miss at least 2 more weeks, one of which is a bye. He is sorely needed as Levi Arnolds 3 INT performance allowed North Texas to stay in this game much longer than they should have.

    New Mexico Wins Defensive Slug-fest in Home Opener vs. Zona'

    ALBUQUERQUE - When the contract was drawn up a couple years ago to resume the border rivalry between Arizona and New Mexico for at least two years beginning in 2014, the Wildcats probably chalked it up as two future wins. That hasn't been the case, and in this year's version the Lobos shocked UA for the second season in a row. UNM seemed happy to be home as they repeatedly drove into Arizona territory, but with a Kicker only good from 40 in they usually had to go for it or try a pooch punt. Most of the time when they went for it first year starter Dustin Walton found the wrong team. Arizona kicked a Field Goal on the last play of the first quarter to go up 3-0. A healthy Bo Woods managed to avoid a 1st quarter injury for the first time this season and punched it in from a yard out in the 2nd. After an Arizona touchdown to answer, New Mexico returned the favor of a field as time expires and tied the game up at 10 as the squads went to the locker rooms. More punts and turnovers from both squads had them entering the 4th quarter still all knotted up at 10. The Lobos broke the tie when true freshman kicker Kevin Henderson sneaked a 37-yarder over the crossbar with 3:41 to go. With New Mexico trying to run out the clock, Nate Glory called a timeout with 57 seconds to go and inserted freshman HB Darron Davis who took a pitch 37-yards to paydirt to ice the game. With the 20-10 victory UNM moves to 2-1 on the young season and has an upcoming bye week to get healthy before their trip the following week to the former Soviet Bloc country of Las Cruces

    Afterwards Glory fielded questions from the media.

    Random Reporter: What made you bring Davis in there for that last touchdown run?
    Nate Glory: It was Bo's idea actually. He came over to the sideline and I said "son you look tired," and he told me we should put the kid in and run that pitch play he scored on at Texas. He had seen the hole for it, so I took his advice. I mean the kid is faster than a bee stung stallion, and besides we all know that BO KNOWS best.

    RR: What about the timeout at your own 24 with 20 seconds left, then a pass?
    NG: To be honest I was just trying to get Dustin a little confidence. He's still looking for his first touchdown. The pass was pretty, but the DB in the endzone timed it and instead of touchdown #1 it was interception #9.

    RR: Walton definitely seems to be struggling. Any thoughts of bringing Wright, errrrr Abdullah back?
    NG: We're not gonna talk about Namid. Look, we won. This kid is 2-1 as a starter and damn near beat a top ten team in their own house last week. He went 17-30 for 183 yards today. I could have done without the 4 picks, but I put him in some tough situations a couple of time. He'll get there.

    RR: Coach, have you come up with a nickname for your new tailback tandem (Bo Woods 77 yards on 17 carries and a score, Darron Davis 67 yards on 4 carries and a score).
    NG: Ha, not really.
    RR: How about Thunder and Lightning, or Batman and Robin?
    NG: How about you're a corny bastard

    editors note: The Albuquerque Journal ran a contest to nickname the tandem, and the winning submission was "Smash and Dash"

    Damn good win Chuck, thats a big one.


    Catching up.....


    Week 2: Penn State Shocks #4 Florida

    It took 4 quarters of tough football and coming back from the brink of a blowout for the Nittany Lions to pull this one out over Florida's Coach Dwreck. Trailing 17-7 at the half to pitch a shut out second half on the Gators STUPIDLY fast offense and hang 17 of their own to pull out the 24-17 win. Offensively the Lions managed to not turn it over and do just enough to scrape by while the defense gave up multiple 3rd down big plays but pulled out some critical turnovers when it mattered the most in order to pull out the big 'W' that will surely put them into the rankings.

    POTG: T. Mullins - QB - 11/15 - 150 Yards - 1 TD - 0 INT

    Week 4: Cardiac Kids? PSU Must Rally to Fend Off #13 Irish

    "What the fuck just happened here," stammered Coach Jman after his teams blow a big lead and the come from behind win over the Irish, "Seriously, I remember headbutting one of out LB's and then nothingness till now!" Its probably a good thing he didn't bear witness to remembering much as the PSU offense tried desperately to give this one away. After coming out to a 10-0 lead by the end of the 3rd quarter they were then trailing 17-26 after amassing 4 turnovers through the air. Only a 21 point 4th quarter rally and two INT's by linebacker Robby Collins (1 for the go ahead score) would salvage the day. Penn State no doubt want to move on from this one.

    POTG: R. Collins - LB - 2 TKL - 2 INT - 1 TD

    NM State plays like ass;
    loses 38-14 to Nevada.

    That's what happens when you give up 256 yards rushing. I really do like the EA Dynasty website redesign, though.

    This one was a blow out from the word go. The only thing that prevented a shutout was an errand Jay Leak pass to the flats that went for a TD the other way.

    On offense it was a story of senior leadership. SR Free Safety Kendrick Van Ackeren recorded 3 sacks, 2 of which forced fumbles and also managed an interception as he keyed an energetic Warriors defense.

    On offense it was a sign of things to come. True freshman HB Larry Morton ran for 104 yards and 3 TDs on just 9 attempts while also taking a routine screen pass 31 yards for fourth TD. In his first game back from an injury, QB Jay Leak went 9 of 13 passing for 133 yards with 2 TDs and an INT.

    New Mexico Keeps Maloof Trophy with Shootout Win over Aggies

    Las Cruces - The University of New Mexico won the Rio Grande Rivalry for the third straight season, and fourth time in five years. The Lobos scored 21 first quarter points, and held the edge at the half 31-14. Lobos Quarterback Dustin Walton threw his first touchdown of the season in the second quarter, and added another in the fourth as UNM cruised to a 45-24 win. Smash and Dash were at it again as each player averaged over 10 yards per carry on the game. Bo Woods (Smash) ran for 200 yards on 18 carries with 3 scores, while Darron Davis (Dash) pitched in 32 yards on just 3 carries. Walton played mistake free football going 12-17 for 179 yards and 2 touchdowns with no picks. New Mexico State was led by Senior Quarterback Gary Issacson who went 27-39 passing with 265 yards, 2 TD's and 2 interceptions. With the win the Lobos move to 3-1 (1-0) on the young season, while the Aggies, in the midst of a rebuilding year, drop to 1-4 (1-2). Afterwards Nate Glory told the press, "This is a big win for the state of New Mexico. I know the recruits saw this and it makes it clear where they should spend their next four years. I like Coach Kriske, but then again I bet everybody in the SEC likes the head coach of Vanderbilt too. All kidding aside, he's had some rough recruiting classes and trying to make the most of what he has. He keeps going to Bowl games so I don't think they'll get rid of him. I'm already looking forward to the return encounter next season in Albuquerque. It's always a lot of fun when the Maloof Trophy is on the line."

    UAB wins on the road against FIU
    UAB 31
    FIU 24

    24 hours earlier UAB’s head coach papaloke was finishing out a week long vacation at Disneyworld in Florida. Sipping long island iced teas at the high octane bar in Hollywood Studios, papaloke started crafting a gameplan for FIU. “Yeah, I didn’t come up with much, Disneyworld was great and all but I was ready to get back with the team.” Papaloke met the team in Miami as they took the field against a high powered FIU offense lead by Heisman candidate RB Shane Coleman. At 5’6” 187 lbs the speedy back has been averaging about 10 yards a carry and going into the game was second in the nation in rushing yards. Coleman left is mark on the game early as he took a pitch play 40 yards and set up a FG for the first score of the game. UAB answered back with a big play of their own as SR QB Isaiah Johnson connected on a 56 yard pass to speedster Clifton Dortch for a UAB score. Not to be outdone FUI’s Chase Haynes took the following kickoff back 94 yards to retake the lead at 10-7. “This was a big blow for us, they had the momentum and I was worried that we wouldn’t recover” said papaloke. UAB managed to score again at the 1:46 mark and retook the lead 14-10. With a minute left in the half UAB got the ball back deep in their own territory and hastily tried to push the ball and score. Dropping back to pass, Johnson was sacked, fumbled and an opportunistic FIU defense was able to recover. A couple of plays later and Shone Coleman was coasting into the end zone for an 11 yard score. Halftime score UAB 14 FIU 17.
    The second half proved to be disastrous for FUI. A FUI fumble and interception kept the Blazers in great field position and they were able to capitalize, scoring 14 points in the third. This pushed the lead to 28-17 UAB. FIU fought back however and scored early in the fourth as the Blazers blitzed on a third and 2, QB Andrew Kelly connected for a 32 yard score and FIU was back in the game 28-24. UAB mounted a methodical drive chewing clock but a delay of game penalty and a FIU third down stop forced the Blazers to settle for a 27 yard field goal with 1:47 left in the game. Down by 7 points FIU, started a drive that could have sent the game into overtime. As fate would have it though this would not be the case, 4* Sophomore SS Matt Fuller was able to force a fumble, recovered by UAB and the game was over.
    UAB improves to 3-0 on the year and puts them in the driver’s seat for a C-USA crown. Next week UAB will travel to Notre Dame to take on the fighting Irish and then will host a huge user match up with Penn State.

    Lobos Spot Wyoming 17 Points then Roar Back for Win

    LARAMIE - Wyoming Head Coach Miles Green, in anticipation of marrying a Hispanic woman, missed the matchup with UNM while on vacation in Brazil to check out the Latino culture. New Mexico, meanwhile, started the game like they were the one's out of the country, spotting the Cowboys the first 17 points of the game. Dustin Walton threw a 33-yard touchdown with 24 seconds left in the half, but the Lobo D folded and still allowed a FG before the whistle to head into the locker rooms down 20-7. Inspired by Coach Glory's deportation threat filled halftime speech NEW Mexico came to play in the 3rd. Walton threw his second touchdown pass of the game, followed by a 26-yard scoring run by backup tailback Darron Davis. Third string back Evan Hood even got into the action scoring from 15 yards out to close the 3rd. The 4th quarter was scoreless as UNM held on for the 28-20 win and moves to 4-1 (2-0) on the year.

    Smash and Dash became the first two backs in UNM history to each go over 100 yards in a game. Bo Woods had 110 yards on 16 carries, while Davis had 124 yards on 20 carries (and a score). All in all the Lobos rushed for 270 yards on the day. Afterwards, Glory told the press, "I feel like we found our identity in that 3rd quarter today. I've been trying to run a balanced offense this year like we have in the past. That's not what this team is about. We are a running squad and we need to play to our talents. I take responsibility for not doing that so far, but future opponents should take note. Smash and Dash are coming."

    Hawaii - 56
    NMSU - 0

    Usually we see a bigger effort for game breakdowns in user match-ups but this one will be short and sweet. NMSU's roster simply didn't stack up against Hawaii's. Even when plays were there to be made, the NMSU QB would miss wide open guys or they would drop passes that could have extended drives or his O-line blocked like bullfighters and he was getting crushed. Hopefully GatorJes can get the F outta dodge after this year or can pull a nice recruiting haul to get his roster moving in the right direction.

    GG Jesse, I know we go down to the wire when the rosters are even

    Lobos Take Down UNLV in Offensive Display 15-9

    ALBUQUER!IE - Season after season and year after year Head Ball Coach Nate Glory always says the same thing in his pre-season press conference, "Yeah, my days of showing up drunk for ball gamees are behind me." Yet each season the inevitable happens, and Glory stumbles out on the sideline to coach a game. Tonight was no different as New Mexico welcomed the Rebels of Nevada-Las Vegas to University Stadium and Nate Glory came out wearing a beat up old "Gators for McCain-Palin" T-shirt. It was obvious that the man hadn't been to bed and needed sleep. Thankfully for Glory the Lobo defense showed up and opened the scoring up with a safety to put his squad up 2-0. By the end of the first half, the Albuquerque Isotopes were clinging on to a 5-3 lead over the Las Vegas 51's (That's a minor league baseball reference for those not in the know). A UNLV rouchdown and an inexplicable failed two point conversion in the third made it a 9-5 ball game. New Mexico, true to their drunken coach's gameplan just kept it on the ground the rest of the game and after 10 fourth quarter points came out 15-9 victors. Senior Quarterback Dustin Walton wasn't called on much during the game but went 7-14 passing for just 34 yards. Smash and Dash carried the work load as Bo Woods had 20 carries for 134 yards and a score, and Darron David has 14 carries for 61 yards.

    Despite the uninspired outing, UNM moves to 5-1 (3-0) on the season, while UNLV drops to 2-3 and (Who gives a fuck) on the year. Afterwards when a reporter brought up Nate Glory's outfit he simply said, "I don't know, it's an election year or something sn't it? Look, I know what you all have to say and are going to asssskks. We won, so get off my back. It was the fucking Nevada Reno Rebels so I wasn't worried. Shit, I was so confident I brought us out in silver pants. Don't you worries peoples. I know what the fuck I'm doing." And with that, he walked over to a Hispanic woman and exited, stage left. Rumor has it that after the Wyoming game he departed on a flight to Brazil and spent the rest of the week with Coach Green down in Rio up to Mayhem, however, this reporter has yet to substantiate that fact.

    Hexum wins in coaching debut; Tulsa 17 - UTEP 0
    It wasn't the prettiest of games to watch, and maybe the celebratory suds were still flowing for Nick Hexum after accepting his first head coaching job, but the Golden Hurricane defense pitched a shutout to keep Tulsa's conference record unblemished. Tulsa put up a single score in 3 of 4 quarters and did just enough offensively to earn the W. The biggest play of the game came midway through the 2nd quarter, when UTEP attempted a fake punt despite being down just 3-0. Tulsa was ready for it, and converted the advantageous field position into a 10-0 lead. A late 4th quarter TD pass sealed the win, as junior QB Jeremy McNeal was efficient if nothing else, posting 131 yards and 1 TD from a 7 for 11 performance. The star of the game though was the clock controlling, yardage chewing run game from senior RB Jesse Woods. Woods carried the rock 28 times for 175 yards with 1 TD. ​
    "I was really pleased with the effort," said Hexum. "There were a lot of guys I was looking at to prove themselves, to show me what they're made of. Woods was a beast." With the win, Tulsa improves to 2-0 in CUSA play, and 3-2 on the season. Next week, Hexum will take his first road trip, as the Hurricane head to Marshall. ​

    After returning from Sabbatical Coach Green found his team in utter shambles. Star QB Goodman is out for another 7 weeks, leaving his backup and 52 OVR QB Lambert to run the show. Lambert threw a pick on his first attempted, things looked very bleak for the Cowboys early. The Rams raced out to a 14-0 lead. The Cowboys fought back at the half following a couple of long pass plays to take a 17-14 half time lead. It was all Cowboys after that as they raced to a commanding win against their rivals. With no QB the Cowboys rushed for almost 200 yrds. IT will be a tough season for the Cowboys without their QB the best they can hope for is a bowl game.​
