    Joe Davidson, Sacramento Bee – Nothing but the facts

    Joe Davidson wrote an article about Sacramento State’s win over Colorado State.

    1. “The No. 6-ranked team in the FCS clobbered higher-division Colorado State on its home turf 41-10 in front of 25,445 fans at Canvas Stadium.”

    Sacramento State and Colorado State are both Division I football programs.

    2. “…this marked the largest margin of victory for an FCS team over an FBS one since 2017, when Western Illinois beat Coastal Carolina, 52-10.”

    Portland State 66-7 over North Texas in 2015

     

  • Point 2., one could argue that Joe was saying that this was the largest largest margin of victory since 2017, but that feels strange.

  • Jonah Leaea committed

    Don’t know anything about him. Mid-ish three star right now. Offers from bad P5 programs, G5s… and us. Seems like we have abandoned the strategy of banking on higher ranked guys committing later. I feel like we have way more committs than we did at this time the last 2-3 years. Am I wrong?

    Kid plays for Bishop Gorman. I guess if you have to find something to bitch about…

      Plays for Gorman and is newish to football (used to play basketball). He’ll get his composite ranking soon enough

    Injury details

    Kyle’s so quiet about injuries except when it’s season ending, but then i still never hear the exact details about injury.

    Does anyone know exactly what’s up with both Curry and Kuithe?

  • Well Curry’s ankle got a little bent…Kuithe just based on how he spinned and started punching the ground ACL.

    The Defence

    I thought that the defense played very well. One thing that is saw was that the defensive call coming from the bench was sometimes slow getting to the players. They were caught few times not being being set in formation when the ball was snapped. That needs to be addressed, the teams coming up in the schedule will see that on the game tape and will exploit it, if not corrected it could cost us a game.

    Is that by design sometimes to have it late in the clock? QB can’t know the defensive set if it’s not set.

    • SOWhat

      Not when our d-line is looking for signals when the offense starts running the play.

    Kuithe’s injury hurts

    However, every team has key injuries this time of year.  I am optimistic that others will step up and we will be fine.  Stars are often made when someone gets injured and the next guy steps up.  Remember that guy named Tom Brady.  Someone has an opportunity to shine.

    We were also exceptionally lucky that we avoided the injury collateral damage during last year’s Championship run.

  • This puts more on Rising’s shoulders. He already had a lot on his plate but now he is losing his automatic first down guy.
    Feels like the offense is suffering like the Defensive backfield did last year.

    The injury may end up helping us in some ways… but ultimately, without elite talent on offense we will struggle against elite competition if we face anything resembling that this year.

    Can’t replace a guy like Brant but if you were going to lose a player it might as well be at a position of wealth. Kincaid has a higher NFL TE rating than Kuithe does and is a top 10 guy nationally at the position and there is talent behind him. Bernard and Dixon, Parks etc. will have to step up in the slot but the defense doesn’t know where the ball is going now. I’ve heard many complain that we haven’t seen Kuithe run the ball like he did a few years back…well the defenses haven’t given us the right look since then in the majority of cases. He was such a dangerous runner that they took it away.

    In a weird way this makes us less predictable IMO. Cam trusts Brant and looks his way under pressure but will now have to expand his horizons and open up his mind. Cam is one of the best in the country at seeing the field and throwing against pressure so this makes him quite a bit more dangerous.

    Again, not having Brant hurts big time but I think overall you’re now gonna have to defend the entire field vs. the Kuithe tendency. Someone has to and will step up. Gonna be exciting to see who.

      We have some really great weapons. I was hoping to see more of Cope, Johnson, Gillmore and Mbanasor. It’s a tough loss, but this may help us in the long run. We have some dudes and some dudes coming in. The future is bright.

        we have A (single, not plural) really great weapon in Kincaid. Just one. That’s the honest truth my friend. Don’t just down vote. If you think I’m wrong, prove it.

        We have one weapon who is sometimes great, and sometimes good… Rising.

        We have two who are usually good, and could be great (this year)… Vele, and Thomas.
