FOOTBALL: Trying to skin Skinner

Baylor players lament their lack of pass rush against Wake Forest quarterback Riley Skinner. They slowed Wake’s run but gave Skinner lots of time in the pocket, and he completed 75 percent of his attempts for 220 yards , 3 touchdowns and no picks in a 41-13 victory for the Demon Deacons. The Rebels had a similar pass rush day against Memphis, but the Tigers’ spread is different than Wake’s.

    What is the major difference PA?

    PA, when you have seen Snead in practice and scrimmages has he been pretty successful with the deep ball, more so than he was in the Memphis game?

    AK, I wouldn’t worry about Snead and the deep ball. I thought he was pretty close the other night, and he’s been very successful with it in practice.

    38652, I don’t know the major difference in Baylor’s lack of rush against Skinner and Ole Miss’ lack of rush against Memphis. I do know the Ole Miss opinion after the game was not one of concern. It pointed to the fact that Memphis was in a spread offense and focused on a short drop and quick release. That is true. I think the more disturbing fact for Ole Miss on defense was that it only had three tackles for loss and wasn’t more disruptive in the run game.

    I agree

    How do our cornerbacks stand up as compared to Wake’s receivers?

  6. djrebel Says:

    Jr, Wake has some talent at receiver, but I don’t think it’s the level of Memphis’ talent. Skinner threw to eight different guys against Baylor. They’ll throw to the tight end more than Memphis did.
