UNT Game Thoughts

- It was nice to finally have an easy win.

- Pretty decent crowd.  Not quite as many as the Troy game, but I continue to be encouraged by the attendance this year.  Good student turnout. I wish they'd let them sit on the visitor sideline though.

- Rusty is continuing to round into form.  The past 3 games have been vintage Rusty Smith, limiting the mistakes and making big plays.

- I didn't see a single dropped pass by a WR!

- Excellent job by the youngsters on the D-line today.  I admit, I was worried when I heard Jackson and St. Claire would be out this week, but Givens, Cox, Johnson, and Joseph stepped right in and held their own out there.  The future of D-line looks good.

- The kids in the backfield also had some good moments.  Great TD run by Blanchard.

- Overall, it was a much needed blowout.  Hopefully we keep the momentum going against ULL next Saturday.

GO OWLS!

Yeah, decent turnout.

I want to commend the Owlsgear.com guys… they had a trailer sign (even lit up at night!) and a big balloon at the game. Awesome, awesome job you guys.

Speaking of which… who was selling the I AM AN OWL shirts?

Nothing they could catch, anyway. In the first quarter rusty threw a few passes that were too far ahead of the guys and they couldn't get to it in time.

Then they settled in and got things done. Charles Pierre continues to impress! Frantz Joseph with two turnovers too… and whoever ran the PAT in for a safety… amazing

Re: UNT Game Thoughts

Bonner dropped the very first pass of the game - right in his arms. The rest of the bunch did excellent but we ran more than ever.
Pierre was spectacular !!!

The D was looking a little conservative but it looks like Coach H made some changes and  I saw a few more blitzes. Sure would like the D play calling to be much more aggressive.

Penalties - great job today except for the bone head with the personal foul at the end of the game - no excuse !

Good job Owls and a great practice for ULL !!
