let's recap Arkie:
lost two games early (Baylor, OSU) by about two touchdowns. Struggled.
lost two more games by less than a touchdown. might have been chances in those game to have won.
the difference between where we sit at 7-4 and 'coulda-been' 9-2 or better? razor thin.
as for yesterday? think about a couple of SWEET passes Skylar DID make. One at the end of the first half that HIT THE RECEIVER IN THE HANDS IN THE ENDZONE. that pass gets completed and the whole game changes. fans on here go 'giddy' and there's likely a LOT less criticism of ST.
inches. inches. inches. If's and but's. The win is in the book.
next game up.
some other thoughts
and once again: Malik Knowles? just WOW. one of the most impressive frosch receivers I've ever seen. just from a hands perspective. but what he did running the ball in traffic last night? this kid, of all of them, looks like a Sunday player to me
huge Schoen fan. the clutch catches this kid has made, the plays, throughout his career? another of a long list of walk-ons at KSU that I wouldn't trade for anything.
Skylar: as if I know what I'm talking about, but the kid just doesn't look like he loves the game. Like he's having fun. Something there. How often do we see the guy smile/laugh? Not sure why that is. that may be, frankly, the difference between the Skylar we see on the field and the Skylar
fans want to see on the field.
in contrast: look at how that Doege kid (WVU) reacted after he tossed his first TD yesterday.
this is going to seem stupid to many of you all, but if I had just one piece of advice for Skylar? take time to smile more during the game.
