    Biggest game of the Year!!

    Well, the biggest game of 2019 has arrived for LA Tech. Everyone in north Louisiana should be pumped about this one. The winner of this week's game between LA Tech and Southern Miss is almost certain to win the west in CUSA, and will likely win the CUSA championship in early December too. In short, football games don't get much more bigger than this in Ruston.

    So, how does LA Tech stop QB Jack Abraham and USM's high powered and Top 5 nationally ranked offense this week? USM steamrolled a pretty stout UNT team last night in Hattiesburg, 45-27. But most of the fans on the CUSA board are saying the score could have --and should have-- been much worse, but for a few fluke plays and bad officiating calls. Here's how one USM fan summed up last night's plastering of UNT:

    Good game UNT. Hope Fine’s injury isn’t too serious. Thoughts on the game:

    -Terrible officiating by CUSA officials. Never fails. That back judge was absolute garbage. On those PI’s he threw his flag like 5 secs after the play was over. If the WR is initiating grabbing with the defender and you don’t call it then that’s fine but you DON’T call it when the DB starts to reciprocate. Terrible officiating.
    -Score wasn’t indicative of the game. Should’ve been 40-ish to 10-ish.
    -If we happen to get our starting RB back this season from injury then we’re gonna be a dangerous team.
    -Jack and the WR’s shredded UNT’s DB/LBs. They just did not have an answer. Jack finished 29/36 (81%) for 421 yds 3TDs.
    -Run game wore down UNT’s front seven in the 3rd and beyond.
    -Quez and Jaylond are two of the best WRs we’ve had at USM in a long time.
    -Play of the game was the deflect/kick INT by our defender in the 3rd.
    -Took a little while but once the dline was able to pressure/hit Fine, is when we won the game.
    -Nice to have a 100 yard rusher for the first time in a few years.

    USM has a top 5 nationally ranked offense? Doesnít Tech average more yards and points per game?

    I believe their passing O is top 5. Their rushing O is 100+. Techís offense is ranked higher.

    Itís a fact that Holtz doesnít have an answer for beating USM. Whatever it takes for them to win, they do it. Whatever it takes for Tech to lose, they do it. Holtz needs to find a way. When youíre supposed to be a good program itís inexcusable to get beat by the same conference team every year. Multiply that exponentially when Tech gets beat by a QB that left the program when he saw that Holtz was unreasonably locked in on a QB with lesser talent. Weíll see whose better this year... I think we all know already, but sometimes the games donít play out as expected. My fingers are already crossed.

    Yes, Tech has more total yards of offense than USM. Abraham has more passing yards than J’mar and a better Qb rating. Abraham has a better Qb rating than Trevor Lawrence...Stats can be misleading.

    USM is good. Having watched both teams a decent amount this year, Iím pretty nervous about this game.

    Tech is 35-15 overall against USM with USM on the winning side of things. Holtz is responsible for 2 wins and 4 losses. We lost by one point last year, seven the year before. It should be a hell of a game this year. J’mar vs Abraham, plenty of story lines to get excited about...if you are a Tech fan this is the game to attend. Let’s show up as a fan base and cheer the Dawgs to victory.

    Holtz went for it on 4th down in the red zone this past week. He made a change. Let’ s show up as a fan base and cheer the Dawgs to a victory!

    Nice try, but we're not falling for that ploy.

    You have to pass further than 7 yards to really test a secondary. Our coach canít make that call.

    USM will score 40+ on us Saturday. Unless J'Mar plays the best game of his career, we'll lose by 20+ points.

    Re: Biggest game of the Year!!

    It seems to always be a close game, even if one of our teams is clearly better that year. I expect for it to be close again, but J'Mar is going to have to have his best game ever, our defense will have to be very aggressive, and our OLine will have to hold for us to win...... I guess those things go for any team, though.

    Someone just needs to tell Skip that this is a bowl game. We will run all over them, if he believes that.

    Did you really see that as an aggressive move?

    It was certainly "un-Holtz like".

    I thought it was very Holtz like. The book says take the FG. Rather than do what the book says up 21-0 he did something weird.
