MSU @ CMU postgame thoughts
This game was very ugly if you are a Chippewa faithful. My attention span has withered so I will just you give a list of key points I was able to away from the game:
-The defense looked very good in this one. I know, this is crazy right? I mean, they gave up 41 freaking points..?! They were put in some tough spots through out the game with the ineptitude at the QB position.
-Speaking of quarterback play, Ryan Radcliff was awful in this one. He was indecisive and it showed with his floating passes. Every time he made a throw it felt like the ball just barely got the receiver before the coverage hit. A better day for Radcliff makes this game much closer.
-The offensive game plan was terrible. It seemed the Chippewas offensive line was really able to control the line of scrimmage. I would have loved to see the Chips run the ball until MSU proved they could stop the run. Out of the gates it was clear that Enos felt he needed to throw it often to beat the Spartans.
-I usually buy season tickets and I made the mistake of not this year (I will only be able to attend 2 games). CMU ticketing put my 4 purchased seats ($55 a pop) on the wrong side of the field and I was stuck sitting next to old man river, an MSU slappy. I was yelling my face off to start the game (something appreciated on the alumni side) and was nearly booed out of my own stadium. Old man river taunted me and it took everything I had to refrain from asking him to check his diaper.
-It was nice to see some points on the board when it seemed like CMU was headed for a shutout. Thank you, Jason Wilson.
-The muffed punt and the missed INT catch were the plays CMU needed early to put some doubt in the Spartan’s mind. The plays weren’t converted and well, CMU was trounced.
More to come on this one but I really need to simmer down first. Fire up Chips!
