Maybe a little over the top with the title. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a big Bison fan. Maybe simply “Respect” would’ve been better to use. 295 yards – a new single game SDSU single-game record – thrashed the EIU defense. It was men vs boys. I watched every minute of that game and can attest that is not an exaggeration. They (EIU) was shell-shocked going into half time. By that time Zach had almost 240 yard and 3 touchdowns. A great day by any school’s standards – but the day was only half over. Thankfully Coach Steigelmeier called off the dogs – almost embarrassingly so – with about 6 min to go in the game. He pulled almost everyone for second-stringers, or Zach may have gotten the 38 yards that he needed to set a new FCS record. A very classy move my SDSU. This kid single-handedly destroyed Eastern Illinois.
Getting to the story line of this week…
When SDSU played NDSU during the regular season, I got the impression they were trying to disguise what they were, by throwing a high number of passes. I suspect they did this to see if we were so keyed in on Zenner – as to leave passing lanes open. Well, we how know how that turned out for them.
This Saturday, I expect SDSU to get back to their bread and butter: RUNNING THE FOOTBALL. They would be stupid not to. I actually would be disappointed if they didn’t. A steady diet of Zenner, they will be feeding us on Saturday. Zenner right, Zenner left, same Zenner up the middle.
This is a different game. A different time (three weeks removed, it seems weird to say that) And – oh by the way – it is really difficult to beat the same team twice.
