The skinny: Starter David Pevoto has been up and down this season. He needs to be more consistent, more
importantly. his team needs him to be consistent if the Black Knights are going
to make a run to the Poinsettia Bowl during the second half of the season. This
is the most telling stat on Pevoto: Three touchdown passes and eight
interceptions. That has to improve.
Outlook: Has to stop throwing the ball short and make
better reads. Keep an eye on Carson.
The skinny: Looking good, considering:
Sophomore Wesley McMahand, who is 5-foot-6, had never taken a snap before this
season. A freshman, Tony Moore, is the short-yardage back.
McMahand has been
good, rushing for 456 yards and four touchdowns. Moore adds four touchdowns of
his own. Let's not forget the hard-nosed play of fullback Mike Viti.
Outlook: Just keep doing
what you are doing, guys.
The skinny: The most experienced unit on the
team struggled, maybe a bit, early in the season. But the group is getting
better, smashing open holes against Virginia Military Institute last week. The
real test awaits, the big boys up front will be one of the driving forces, if
the Black Knights make the Poinsettia Bowl.
Outlook: Expect the o-line to play its best football in
the second half. The unit will continue to mesh.
The skinny: Jeremy Trimble has
dropped more passes than expected, he's so good you wouldn't expect him to botch
more than one a season. Anyway, he still leads the team with 27 receptions, and
is Pevoto's go-to-guy. Walter Hill has been solid, but quiet, 17 catches for 178
yards. The Black Knights' unit is paper thin after Trimble and Hill, but
unheralded sophomore Mike Wright has chipped in with five ctaches.
Tim Dunn has been a good blocker.
Outlook: Expect more Pevoto to Trimble in the second half.
Hill is more of an impact and has another big game against Air Force.
The skinny: Coach
Bobby Ross has one blemish through the first six games and its a big one: The
Rice game. Besides that, he's been good, even though fans criticized him for his
Texas A&M call. He certainly made the right move against Baylor with Moore
on the fourth-and-1.
How much can he get out of the Black Knights in the second half? If we know
Ross, he'll keep them hungry.
