CU-UNC Post Game Notes
By TrevMon • Issue #3 • View online
Alas! Folsom shined under the Friday night lights. The band, and crowds were back, , and Ralphie XI made her debut…UNC kept the Buffs off balance early with creative and un-scouted schemes (west coast-like offense; 3-3-5 on defense). The Buffs adjusted, and pounded out 383 yards total offense, outgaining UNC 281-20 on the ground. While the win was decisive, the Buffs have much to fix, clean-up and improve upon going forward.

CU High Notes
  • Defense held UNC to 20 yrds on ground
  • Brendan Lewis (QB) was an effective game manager, no picks/fumbles
  • Chris Miller (S) led the team in Tackles, logging 41 snaps in the nickel/dime position (not listed on depth chart)
  • Good coverage from corners (Blackmon had a pick)
  • Jalen Sami (DT) was disruptive force in the middle, applying consistent pressure (1 sack), as was Na'im Rodman
  • Guy Thomas (Edge) looked good on the edge and around the ball (1 sack)
  • Montana Lemonious-Craig (WR) was a strong presence, catching his first TD, and making blocks
  • 4 different running backs scored behind the lead blocks of Jayle Stacks (FB)
  • Student section showed up early and in force, breaking the all-time student attendance record
  • Nate Landman (MLB) was full-speed, Buffs fans can rest easier
  • 11 true freshman got in on the action, including 7 on defense
  • Special teams looked dynamic. Stanley had several nice punt returns (68 yrds), Rice broke a 4o yrd kick-off return. Freshman Cole Becker showed strong leg his only attempt that bounced off the cross bar from over 50
CU Low Notes
  • 12 penalties were frustrating and uncharacteristic
  • Brendan Lewis missed some throws, half of his 15 attempts were underneath (< 10 yds). He was tentative and errored probably too much on the side of caution, rather than anticipating some throws.
  • Pass protection was suspect (PFF 53). Buffs tackles Wiley and Lytle had difficulty with edge. Brady Russell missed a few blocks.
  • Buffs basic offensive scheme (still early, all QBs are freshman)
  • Poor tackling (PFF 59)
