  • Player of the game

    I think it has to go to Laurent Robinson.

    Way to make big plays when you need to, and nice snag in the end zone. He's going to become a key player for this team. That's for sure!

    Honorable mention goes to the Rams defense. Though we let up a few stupid plays, we stopped them when it matters!

    Sucks that we lost, but the effort was definitely there this week.

    Effort is good, but we also need the talent to be there when it counts.

      I disagree alittle with you,first when you lose,there are no players of the game,he did a good job and should be the number 1 receiver for this team,thats it,and if the effort is there on offense how come after 2 games the team averages 3.5 points per game, if thats the best they can do with a good effort then this team is in big trouble.

        We would of won I think if Avery held on to that ball. Great job defense by holding them to field goals. It is going to be a long process but we looked a lot better this week then last week. We are young and inexperienced but we will learn from our mistakes and make progress.

          I agree I thought the D showed some heart in clamping down and holding them to FG's.

          And Robinson has been a real good pickup.

            I would like to nominate Donnie Avery for the Redskins mvp. He gave them the ball when the Rams would have had 1st and goal from the five yard line. He dropped passes and gave no effort on the long heave by Bulger. All he had to do was slow down just like his catch vs the Redskins last year and he either makes the catch or get pi called on the db. So while many love to blame Bulger I am blaming Avery.

              Agreed, and what the heck was he thinking on that illegal blocking? DeAngelo Hall had no chance of catching Jackson, and Avery just pushes Hall's back for a penalty, AND coincidentally pushes Hall right into Jackson...

                  If you're looking for a guy who gave total effort despite taking a beating and having a solid game by the numbers, Bulger deserves consideration IMO.

                  I was thinking the same think jk, right about the time Avery made zero effort to adjust to Bulger's pass. I know Ike would have adjusted.

                    So glad to know LRobinson is doing good to our offense. Avery will / should / must / can improve and correct shortcomings. :ram:

                      Besides Jackson, Robinson IS the only bright spot in our offense right now.

                        .....Are you guys going to single out for this weeks loss?

                        You can't blame Avery this week (or I suppose you could). Regardless, I'm sure you arm chair experts will single out someone.

                        Head Coach Mark Mangino

                        Opening statement:
                        "Good afternoon. Let me start with our players of the game vs. Appalachian State. On defense, Nick Reid. On offense, Jon Cornish. On special teams, Kyle Tucker. Our scout team defensive player of the week was Brandon Duncan and our scout team offensive player of the week was Tang Bacheyie."

                        "I would like to ask all fans attending the game this Saturday, if they would be kind enough to bring a dollar for the Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund in the Gulf and for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. It would be greatly appreciated."

                        "Now I'll talk quickly about last week's game. On the offensive side of the ball, I thought we did some good things in the passing game. I thought we were much more crisp when it came to running routes. I thought our offensive line continued to improve in both the run game and in pass protection. I felt like the game was managed well. It was very encouraging and I think we have a lot to build on."

                        "On the defensive side of the ball, it's hard to argue against a team that only gave up eight points, especially against a player like the Williams kid, who may be the best player in I-AA. We still are working in some young kids on defense and trying to get that edge back and the chemistry we need. Out on the practice field yesterday, which on Mondays is normally a light workout, you would have thought it was a scrimmage. Those young men know their expectations and nobody cares about that more than they do. Our defense is very good, but the expectations that they have for themselves are so high that they want to prove that we can be every bit as good this year as we were last year on defense."

                        "Special teams were good. I think we need to shore up a few things here and there on some of our kicking protections, but they are all correctable. Charles (Gordon) did a nice job with returns. Kyle Tucker booted the ball very, very well. He has a live leg and we have come to expect that from Kyle. Overall, I'm very pleased. As we had hoped, we made a lot of progress from week one to week two. We plan to continue to build on week two and progress into week three."

                        "Louisiana Tech is a good football team. Traditionally, they are very good, physical, and have a lot of speed. They will be physical up front in the trenches. They have great speed at the skill positions. They have a wide receiver that is very fast. Their quarterback, Matt Kubik, is very mobile and can throw the ball very well. He had a great day against Tennessee last year. These guys are used to playing major conference schools. In the last five or six years, they have defeated Alabama, Michigan State, and gave a heck of a game to Penn State. They are a good, hard-nosed team. We have to be well-prepared for them, and based on what I saw yesterday on the...

                        First and foremost Bulger had a good game under constant pressure. Last year Avery won us this game this year he lost us this game to out it bluntly.

                        Avery should be carrying a ball all day around the facility and everyone from the players to the janiotors should try to strip it all day until he learns some ball security. The only time he shouldn't have a ball in his hands is when he is trying to catch full speed passes from a jug machine or marc Bulger. also he needs to work on blocking since every big run we've had this year Avery has been called for a penalty. 2 horrible games in a row I'm not giving up on him, but he's definately demoted to number 2.

                        We still need better pass protection, and better play from guys not named Robinson and Jackson. We definately need to get more consistent pressure, QBs have way to much time against us. If we got more pressure our defense would really take it to the next level IMO.

                        On the bright side. Play calling much better this week. We used alot more Karney and we used S-Jax in vairety of ways and he was great. We gave up alot to the TE early then we locked up on him. Excellent day for the defense. It was alot of ben don't break, but they definately made plays when we needed them most. They are gonna need some help from the offense if we want to take this thing to the next level. S-jax excellent we got him the ball. Robinson by far number 1 reciever everyone else needs to step it up. O-line much better run blocking especially cogs who I shreded last week.

                        All in all huge week to week improvement IMO. Saw somethings i really liked

                        QB Marc Bulger

                        (On preparing for the San Francisco game)
                        “I think with them starting out the way they have, and obviously with our record, it’s almost a must-win game. We had two good games last year, overtime here, then they got us pretty good out there. But it’s always a good game between these two organizations, and being a division game, it’s pretty important.”

                        (On playing at San Francisco)
                        “Last week, the way they got beat in Seattle, that’s not indicative of how good of a team they have. Just from watching some of their defense, they move around pretty well, and they have some incredible guys over there. It’s going to be a tough challenge this week.”

                        (On the Rams’ offensive style)
                        “I think everyone would like to see us run the ball more, the players, and I’m sure Coach Martz too. But what I think what he meant was, if the pass is all that is going for us, than that’s what we are going to stick with. Whatever it takes to win, whether we run it every down, or pass it every down, as long as we win that’s all we care about in here. I think that’s the point that he’s trying to convey.”

                        (On if the team is in panic mode)
                        “We are not in a panic. We know there is urgency in the situation we are in. I know how upset the fans get, and how upset everyone gets, but nobody wants to win more than us. The problem with that is if we dwell on the loss Sunday too much, then we won’t be prepared for San Francisco. We know they are getting ready right now, and if we are still worrying about last Sunday, then we will be in for a long game this Sunday. We made our corrections. You hate to say you had to move on, but you have to move on.”

                        (On if he has a good read on the ***** defense)
                        “They do a lot of coverages, and have a lot of different fronts. We played against pretty much all of those guys last year, so personnel-wise, we know them.”

                        (On if their defense is different now that Jim Mora is not the defensive coordinator)
                        “They do a lot of zone blitzing. (Mora) was probably a little more aggressive. That was just his style. They will still dial it up, and we will have to be prepared for a lot of things. Every week, some things you prepare for they don’t do, and some things you didn’t think they would do, they do. So we are just preparing for everything.”


                        DE Leonard Little

                        (On the defense not having a turnover)
                        “That’s the way it is sometimes. It will turn around for us. We’ll start to get some turnovers and get our offense on the field a little more. We started 1-2 last year and people put us in the same position last year at this time, so we just need to come out and play our game.”

                        (On if the defense hasn’t been as aggressive as last year)
                        “No, we just made some mental mistakes. It’s not like people...

                        Tulsa plays at UTEP on Saturday for the Conference USA West Division lead

                        Oct. 31, 2005

                        Tulsa, Oklahoma - Tulsa travels to El Paso to play the UTEP Miners on Saturday, Nov. 5, in a game that pits the two teams atop the Conference USA West Division with identical 4-1 league records. UTEP has an overall 6-1 record atfer last week's win at Rice, while the Hurricane bring a 5-3 overall mark into the game.

                        Tulsa fanswill be getting together for another Watch Party for Saturday's Golden Hurricane football game against the Miners. The Fox and Hound at 70th and Garnett and the Side Line Bar and Grill at 59th and South Lewis Avenue will be hosting watch parties.

                        Game time is 8 pm (CT). The game can be seen locally on KWHB-Channel 47 and on Cox Channel 7.

                        Below are Coach Kragthorpe's Remarks from his Weekly Press Conference.



                        Steve Kragthorpe Press Conference Quotes

                        Opening Statement: "It will be good to get back on the practice field today and to get going. It has been an interesting week, we have never had an open date this late in the season. I thought it was a good time for us to heal up like we talked about last week and put ourselves in the position now to make a run at this thing, with the first one being at UTEP this week against a very good football team. They will be a great challenge for us. They are very explosive on the offensive side of the football and they are playing really solid defense right now. The Rice score is not an indication of the flow; I thought that they pretty much dominated that game although they had a few turnovers that put Rice back into the football game. If you watch that game on film and if you watch it on television, they definitely dominated that football game. Again, they are very explosive, they scored on the first offensive play of the game. They scored on the first four drives of the game. They are very dynamic and explosive on the offensive side of the ball. Again they will be a great challenge for us to go on the road and play in a very hostile environment, great fans. They have a great thing going there at UTEP."





                        Talk about the your team's success on the road this year: "Well, there is no doubt that there is a challenge to go on the road and I do not see this week being any different. They are going to have a sellout crowd, and they will be very vocal. I have talked to numerous people that have played at UTEP this year and they have said that the crowd can definitely be a factor. But that is the way it is in every road venue for the most part. We played in two challenging environments tht we had the opportunity to compete in, at Oklahoma this year and then at Southern Miss. So again this will be no different. It will be a challenge, it always is to go play on the road, but I think that our guys are excited about the opportunity...
