Re: Humble Pie has been served 


I hope they change the name of this forum to Mid West Football Conference / Jayhawk Conference. It would be healthy for some of you boys to be on the other end of this chat as opposed to dishing it out to the likes of independence, garden city, coffeyville, etc.

To the statement about injured guys playing, assuming Cosh stayed the course of the game and assuming he would play at the same rate he had the first half wouldn't his numbers be 14/40 61 yds and 4 ints. I'm sure he gives a much better chance to win the game then the kid who came in and had his first two passes hit our secondary in the chest. But cosh looked hesitant and confused by the Reiver d. Missing badly on numerous throws, I'm not sure he was ready for the speed of the Reivers d.
Dreamius may have helped, but does he win you that game... No way. I believe that the statement the d made to your league as well as the country. All this talk about the high scoring offenses means nothing if you can't play d. The Reivers o was still able to accumulate over 400 yds while buco was only able to manage 230 something. Hell, there were more players with receptions for negative yardage then there were with positive yds for bcc.
In my opinion, the difference was coaching. IW patiently wore down the d while figuring out what bcc was going to give up - that was the flats and quick perimeter screens. Bcc made no adjustments and we all saw time and time again big chunks of yardage eaten up. On the other side of the ball, bcc's o continued with their power run game and taking shots down the field. The efficiency of the plays were considerably low, but they stuck with it.
All said and done, lets do it again next year. We had to win one to get to 2. So now the challenge is set. Also, you can throw around all the previous titles and chances of titles if you like, but ask yourself this... Have you won a title since IW has been playing football? So in our history we have 1 and you have 0 and our 1 happens to come against you. So manipulate the numbers any way you like but you simply can not argue that.
