1-0, folks! The first home win of the Matt Rhule Era at Baylor Bears is under our belts. There were some flashes of prospects of greatness, some good things, and some not so good things. And, of course, the reviews. ALL of the reviews. We’re talking about ‘em here on ODP.
The Show Notes
- Surprise performer: Jalan McClendon! Nobody expected split time, nor did they expect him to outduel Charlie Brewer in the opener.
- JaMycal Hasty, John Lovett, Trestan Ebner shine in the RB position
- OL adjusts well to Josh Malin’s injury and gets better as the game progresses (s/o to Eleasah Anderson for stepping up big)
- Solid WR outing: Jalen Hurd’s debut score, Denzel Mims’ solid outing, the positives from Chris Platt and that gorgeous blocking
- No Sacks!
- Elliott Coffey doesn’t love the way the defense looked (neither do Fank or me).
- Big plays frustrate us... Hopefully correctable?
- Special teams... woof. First game jitters?
- Is UTSA bad? Or will they adjust after getting walloped by Arizona State?
- UTSA QB Cordale Grundy: is that a real name?
- Home/Road game differences
- Can we exploit UTSA’s inexperience?
- The things we want to see this week
PICKS OF THE WEEEEEEEEK. Fank’s decided to keep track of our terrible picks. My only question is, “WHY!?” Heh, here’s the standings after Week One:
T-1. Coffey (3-5)
T-1. Pope (3-5)
3. Fank (2-6)
Yeah. We’re real good at this.
