Notes of Steele

In case you don’t know, Phil Steele puts up weekly notes at his website (linked on the right).  They’re as hard to read as his magazine, but worth taking a look at.

Here are a few nuggets that might be of interest to Dawg fans from what he posted this week:

  • Kent State completely outplayed Kentucky in the 1st half with a 268-98 yard edge but fumbled twice and was intercepted to stop 3 drives and also got to the Kentucky 11 at the end of the half but out of timeouts they could not get off a FG attempt so 4 scoring opportunites were wasted… [Ed. note:  UK is +4 in TO margin so far this year.  The ‘Cats will be trouble if they keep up that pace.]
  • Alabama won for the 20th consecutive time over Vanderbilt and was even more comfortable than the final would indicate. They finished with a 371-232 yd edge but VU gained 85 of their yards on the final 2 drives including a TD with 7:22 left. VU QB Nickson was hampered by a sore hamstring all game and struggled hitting 5 of 18 passes for 67 yards and Bama fans outnumbered VU fans…
  • Auburn/USF was a strange game in the fact that Auburn turned over the ball 5 times but USF missed an amazing 4 FG’s. Auburn’s D was already playing without LB Blackmon and S Savage and lost CB Whilhite and LB Johnson during the game to inj and Tuberville said “We were so beat up we played our 2nd Tm LB’s and DB’s in the 2H.” USF jumped out to a 14-0 lead but needed OT for the victory…
  • Oklahoma St QB Bobby Reid was talked about as a possible All-Big XII candidate at the start of the year but he found himself on the bench for the final 3Q’s vs Florida Atlantic and backup Zac Robinson hit 14 of 20 for 250 yds engineering the 36 point rout…
