The Arkansas State University (ASU) men’s football team is coming off of their biggest win of their season, winning a 24-10 victory over the Louisiana-Lafayette (LLU) Golden Eagles. After coming off of a loss at home to Nebraska in the last week of August, the ASU team is now in the middle of their home opener to begin a stretch of road games.
Arkansas State is currently ranked third in the nation in rushing offense, and they’ve been pretty dominant since mid-November. They have the third-most rushing yards in the nation, and the fourth-best average yards per carry. These numbers are due to the fact that the ASU offense was pretty run-heavy for most of the year, especially in the early going.
Arkansas State has been a pretty dominant team this year, but they’ve done it in a way that makes it difficult to tell whether they’re a dominant team or a pretty dominant team. They have a fairly balanced offensive line, but they probably only have the two best running backs in the entire nation — junior QB Brett Smith and sophomore RB Zach Mayfield — in the backfield.
That said, they’ve also added in tight ends in the secondary, two of the best pass rushers in the entire nation (Bryan Edwards and Justin Smith), and a very good offensive line. I think we can all agree that the offense is very good, but the defense is pretty dominant (even if we can’t tell which side of the ball is the better side).
It’s hard to talk about the offense without mentioning the big difference between last year and this year. Last year, the offense was a little more balanced, but this year it’s been a one man show for quarterback Brett Smith. I’m not sure why they didn’t go with a smaller RB such as junior RB Nick Dyer for a majority of this season.
Yeah, I agree with that. Its hard to find that balance with a QB that can’t throw the ball and a QB that is prone to drops and such. However, the defense is still very good and the defense can really pressure the QB. If they don’t win, Smith probably wont be able to beat the Big 12.
I’m not sure how the offense and defense can be balanced. I think for the offense, one of the problems is that the QB is so talented and so good that the passing game is so easy to attack. The QB usually throws for 300+ yards and scores a lot; however, it seems like Smith throws for only 90 yards and a few touchdown. And even if he throws for 300 yards, his passing game can struggle to score.
I think the defense can really pressure the QB, but the offense can struggle to score, and the defense can keep the ball on the field. I dont think the offense is strong enough to score, and the defense can’t keep the ball on the field. If the offense is strong, they can score, but if they are weak they can struggle to score. I dont think the defense is strong enough to stop the offense, and the offense is weak to stop the defense.
This is a pretty safe bet. The defense has the talent and you have to know how to play the game to be successful. The offense doesn’t have the talent but is good enough to win. The offense needs to be strong, the defense needs to not be weak, and you need to know how to play the game to be successful. If you know the game then you can be successful.
The problem with this is that the defense is weak because the offense is weak. If the offense were to lose the game, then the defense has no chance of holding on.
