    Re: Quarterfinal: Kennesaw State @ SHSU

    So I picked Kennesaw, for three or four reasons.

    1) Sam Houston State's defense (and the entire defense of the Southland Conference, except McNeese State maybe) is suspect. I don't see them shutting down Kennesaw State's run game. This could turn into a shootout, but see #3 why I don't think the scoring will be *too* high

    2)Sam Houston State's offense is liable for quick three and outs, just as much as they are to score fast (If I don't feel lazy, I'll research both team's offense/stop rate). People often say that Sam Houston State is bad because in many playoff games they have laid major eggs. It's not because they are a bad team, but because the style of play is high risk, high reward and if you have a bad day, it's a *really* bad day. The best defenses in FCS average a stop rate of about 80%. If an offense gets 15 possessions but only scores 20% of the time, that' still score 20 or so points. So when Sam Houston messes up and gets blown out, it's because their offense has a bad day and the opponent offense scores 40-50% of the time (average rate for a good team). so, it's like 7 scores (40ish points) compared to 2-3. You get the idea.

    3) Anyway, I don't think that will happen with Kennesaw because I think they'll try to run the clock, knowing full well what SHSU is capable of. I think if the TOP is 35 or 40 minutes to 20 with the advantage KSU, KSU wins like 31-21. Basically, I'm skeptical of air raid offenses, because historically they seem to hit a wall.

    4) If Kennesaw State wins and Wofford wins, Wofford gets the home game


    Having said all of that, it's possible that I've misread both KSU and SHSU and SHSU wins handily. The above 1-3 are what you will see if KSU wins.

    I'm enjoying the anti-Bearkat sentiment..... Makes the victory that much sweeter..
    Just because you are offended doesn't mean you are right.

    You let the #6 team in the Valley almost beat you on your own turf and let them back into the game. It is not "anti-Bearkat sentiment", it is just the truth.

    Re: Quarterfinal: Kennesaw State @ SHSU

    There are no bad teams at this point in the season. If Sam Houston loses, it's not because they are a bad team, just not the best team on the field on that day.

    This is true of all teams IMO

    There are a few fanboys here that don't understand that.

    I agree Daytripper. The more hate there is, the sweeter the victory. 12-0 at home in the playoffs? Game Against Kennesaw?? I like our chances.

    Please, keep doubting us.

    It seems KSU is one demisional on offense. I think if Sam jumps on them early, which history shows that has a real good chance of happening, KSU may have great chance of running the clock out on themselves.

    Hold on a second sir. People were praising USD a few weeks ago. Strevler this, USD that. “South Dakota will beat Sam!”. Now the story is changing.

    It has not helped you in the last six years, did your team practice for it this year?
