By the Numbers: Week 8

Jamie Rhodes-USA TODAY Sports

"There's nothing flatter than punctured expectations." - me

Louisville Cardinals fall to the Central Florida Knights in a game that featured some great individual efforts, but suffered from systemic breakdown in the 3rd and 4th quarters.

#25 UCF post-game

  • Baylor has been beating a lot of teams, by a lot of points. They've been near or over 400 passing yards in 5 games this season.
  • Miami's passing game has been improving throughout the season, even as their opposition toughens. However, 2 weeks from now they face Florida State. I expect it may drop a bit that week.
  • Washington State put up 557 passing yards on Oregon. And lost by 24.
  • Facing Missouri, Florida was really bad at passing. They went 15-29 for 92 yards. They were worse at rushing. 59 yards on 31 attempts.

In My Humble Opionion

  • In an entirely unrelated note, the smoked brisket turned out fantastic with great flavor and bark, the best I've made. But, it was the smoked pork belly that stole the show. I now have a new addiction.
  • It's like Shawn Watson has been reading the Chronicle. You know, all those posts about a short-route passing game and our pass-run ratio. That was nice to see. Of the 62 plays, 38 (61%) were passing plays.
  • Calvin Pryor: Still a beast. One of the hardest hits I've seen this season (that was legal). If I see a red streak flying at the ball, chances are it's #25. Great, smart hits, tons of tackles. Deserves to be an early round draft pick if he keeps this up.
  • Preston Brown does have a nice "Macho Man Flying Elbow from the top rope" move, but his timing on it needs a little work.
  • Keith Brown's run tackle was definitely missed.
  • Terry Bridgewater had as nice a night as I've seen. One of the smartest QB's I've seen in a while. It's like you can see the gears turning in his head as he steps up to the line. Intelligent adjustments on the line, great execution.
  • I'm apologizing to those fans around me in 117 that had to hear me holler, "That was James Quick" about 50-eleven times during that scoop-return. Nice to see him get one in there.
  • The pass Blake Bortles completed out of bounds to Perriman in the 7th minute of the 3rd was where the tide turned.
  • Perry's fumble was a bad break, but was one of the best punch-strips I've seen in a while, whether intentional or not. Might be that only Dyer's "arms as big as my leg" could have kept that ball from flying out.
  • I knew we had problems when, between the 3rd and 4th, UCF players were bouncing to the music - to a man. On our side, the team was mostly just standing around waiting for the quarter to start.
  • Have I mentioned I love this new weapon we're using? That short route pass is so effective.
  • On that missed 3rd down by Copeland, it's hard to catch a pass when you're wearing a UCF neck sweater.
  • I think Storm Johnson has about 12 gears and power-clutches when he makes the cut just to show he can smoke the tires in 3rd.
  • I've been back and forth on whether declining the holding penalty at 7:40 was best of two crappy options. I was leaning towards it being the best of two crappy options because by that point in the game, Coach Strong was well aware of the D's inability to stop…well anything and he was likely thinking that 3 YearofTheCardinal made clarified things for me. Coach Strong didn't factor the clock and average time of drive into it. We would have to be very lucky or change our play style to burn enough clock on our next drive to have any shot at a comeback drive if UCF scored again. Then we didn't use the timeouts wisely. Bad decision.
  • That drive after UCF's go-ahead kick was such a pleasure to watch. Teddy bein Teddy all the way down the field. Going for it on 4th and 5 showed absolute confidence in the offense. We won't talk about that holding call.
  • The shovel-pass to Brown kinda made me lose my composure and I may have again offended a few nearby fans when he ran it in on the next play.
  • On Bortle's pass to Godfrey we had three defenders within 5 yards. Nobody picked him up. That moment was probably strike-three for me on my neighbors "I hope he re-ups those season tickets for sect 117" chart.
  • Chris Hatfield, in his post-game recap article said, "The Alabama’s and Oregon’s of the world turn on the kill switch when up big late. They finish. They don’t let off the throttle." He's absolutely right. Coach Strong is a nice guy. It's part of what I appreciate most about him, his obvious concern for his players and their well-being. But if we're going to be a top-tier team, the killer instinct has to come out when the opponent walks on the field. Coach Strong sets the tone and direction for the rest of his coaches and for team. He has got to force his guys to keep the gas pedal down, and yes, to run up the score. The mentality has got to be, "We have them down, let's make it impossible for them to get back up."

Music to dust yourself off to

Up for Grabs

Just one question this week -

The defensive failures have been talked about ad nauseum. Let's talk about it some more. While we have some great talent on D, was the overall failure due to a lack of talent needed to face a spread-option, passing opponent with a good running back or was the problem that the talent wasn't deployed properly?

Edit: Fixed FSU highest ranked opponent. Thanks for the catch iceburg360
