NCAA SEASON LEADERS FBS
|Team||Total Offense||Pass OFF
||Rush OFF||Pass Def||Run Def|
San Diego State Overall (1-0) Conf (0-0)
The three players to look out for would be QB Maxwell Smith, RB Donnel Pumphrey and WR Eric Judge. Smith, the Kentucky transfer, has completed 9 of 21 passes for 100 yards. Pumphrey has had 20 carries for 65 yards and one touchdown. So far this season Judge has 2 receptions for 29 yards..
San Diego State’s offensive line will play a major role in how this game is played. The San Diego State offensive line is not very good at pass blocking. If the Cal defensive line is bringing a ton of pressure I would expect SDSU to stay away from the passing game and pound the ground with Pumphrey . Depending on how the line is playing we could also see true freshman Christian Chapman in the game. He is the better running quarterback.
The San Diego State defensive is going to tell us who wins this game. The Aztec defense forced six turnovers (5 Interceptions and 1 Fumble) against the University of San Diego. The Aztec Defense is ranked 3rd in total defense pass efficiency. They will be going up against the best passing offense in the nation. The Aztec defense will need to hold out strong if they want to win this game.
Special teams will play a huge role in this game. Here is Rashaad Penny going 97 yards to the house last week on USD.
Win vs. USD = 37 – 3

CAL Overall (1-0) and Conf (0-0)
The three players to look out for would be QB Jared Goff, RB Khalfani Muhammad and WR Kenny Lawler. Goff has completed 24 of 32 passes for 309 yards and three touchdowns. Muhammad has had 8 carries for 92 yards. So far this season Lawler has 6 receptions for 69 yards and three touchdowns. Taking a look at the national rankings listed at the top of the article California is a really good football team.
CAL is going to need to shut down the Aztecs running game if they wish to win this game. They will want to force San Diego State to throw the football. Offensively Cal will want to keep the ball away from the SDSU Defensive backs. The SDSU Secondary is the best in the Mountain West Conference. The smart play would be to throw underneath the secondary for 5- to 7- yard gains.
Win vs. Grambling State = 73 – 14
vs. San Diego State
vs. Washington State
vs. Oregon State
vs. Arizona State

One of the differences between SDSU’s Rocky Long and Steve Fisher: Long spends his Press time stating why the other team is better then SDSU and why we should find the game difficult. Fisher spends his Press time saying why his team has a chance to win.
Long is a good coach. He is also a realist. Yet, a coach needs to be careful of a self-fulfilling prophesy. If a coach doesn’t have faith in your potential , a player won’t either. Raise your standards and expectations and players often play above their abilities.
Hopefully his team doesn’t watch these. I am hoping he is more motivating in person.:)
Maybe I should buy him a book on motivation !
