- Elijiah Fields taking a starting job is not a big suprise at all. Fields played much better in the second half against Buffalo than DeCicco had the first game and a half. What puzzles me about this move is how Wannstedt and Bennett seem to be on two different wavelengths. Bennett says Fields is the starter and Wannstedt said that Fields is and has always been a co-starter with DeCicco. Wannstedt coming out and immediately correcting his defensive coordinator seems completely uneccessary and adds more fuel to the fire about Wannstedt being incompetent when speaking to the media.
- I seriously doubt that the Wildcat formation was being saved for the Iowa and I doubt we will see it at all this week. Cavanaugh has come out and talked about how he should have used the Wildcat and Cross during the Bowling Green game. My feeling is that you can read between the lines of Wanny's comments about it being a "run-only formation" and a "gimmick offense" as we aren't going to see this anytime soon. The part that makes no sense is why even recruit Greg Cross if your going to ditch this formation or if your hiding the formation why not at least give Cross a couple of plays at QB the first two games. Cross has never played a down of D1 football and getting him used to this level in the first two games may have been a good idea.
- Despite the fact that we lost the opener against Bowling Green we can still win the Big East. The Big East has gotten so poor (except South Florida) that if we can play reasonable football we can win every single game (except South Florida). This team has the talent to make an impact if by some act of god our coaching staff gets it this could still be a big year.
Be back tomorrow hopefully with more news to write about.
