Good call - was about to create a new thread as well.

MSU isn't good enough to keep giving the ball up here.  Also, this Boise team is going to be BAD this year unless they figure out how to run a coherent offense.

I'm feeling remarkably confident about our chances against MSU. Yes, I know Maxwell can improve, but unless he improves fast there's gonna be issues. They have ND, Iowa, and OSU before us, they can't just pound Bell for 40 carries and expect to dominate against us

There is no reason Boise should be able to move the ball like this against MSU.  But if they keep running this up-temp offense, MSU's line is going to be gassed.

Seriously, what is the counter to LBs who come that hard on running plays?  Can't you flare a TE to the middle of the field and pick up an easy 6-7 yards?

Anything past the 40 of MSU and I'd go for it.  With the way college punting is, unless you have a stud kicker you're probably going to net 20 yards of field position. 

I know other people are talking about MSU's run D here, but outside of the LBs I'm not seeing it.  Boise is just really bad at running the ball.
