2011 Video Review UConn @ Buffalo 1st Quarter

via <a href=""></a>

I turned 27 on Wednesday, and have been out celebrating all week, and I don't think I'll stop. Today is May the 4th be with you, and tomorrow is Cinco De Mayo. In addition, there are Stanley Cup Playoff games, NBA Playoff games, and the Kentucky Derby this weekend...It's a great time to be alive, happy and enjoying the start of Summer weather.

If you are happy and an hour or two away from leaving work ready for a great may want to close this now, and save it for Monday. From here on, the celebration ends as I bring you UConn at Buffalo, the low point of 2011 in my opinion.

If you leave now, I won't be offended, at a certain point, probably early Monday morning we'll have to leave the weekend behind and jump back into serious work this then, and think "well at least its not football season and we didn't lose to a 3rd rate UConn team who really didn't even bother to show up, yet still walked away with a victory, and at least its not snowing," (it probably snowed on September 25th in Buffalo)

Of course if you're a UConn fan by all means read now, crack a bottle and enjoy our misery you AD stealing jerks. (sorry, I really liked Warde and it still hurts)

Follow along on WATCHESPN where available, and you can take a look at the Gamethread at:

September 24, 2011.

UConn is 14-4 all time vs UB, and 10-1 in the last 11.

15:00 The stands are full and we receive the kick.

14:45 First play of the game we fake the reverse give it to BO for 1. That says: "i'm feeling froggy, but don't want to leap"

14:12 Our runs sets up a play action toss to Gordon for a first down.

Catch by a tight end.. Drink

by Tim Riordan

BAC Counter .02

12:52: 3rd and 3 near midfield. Pass thrown 20 yard down-field to Rivers Incomplete... a lot of contact no flag, seems it was a catchable ball. Already some #Quinnball...throwing deep on a 3rd and short.

12:22 Johnny McEntee with the start...and I start to regret watching this game...Pasqualoni and Quinn seem to have the same playbook...2 identical runs bring up 3rd and 6.

11:00 McEntee scrambles after good pressure, doesn't get the first down, Mack was held, no call. Short punt fair caught by Jackson...oh my god, they're as bad as us we just might have a shot.

10:24 Oliver gets 6 on first down finding a great seam in the zone blocking scheme.

9:45 Back to Oliver for no gain, 3rd and short again.

9:10 A weird play, Chazz instantly tosses the ball to Oliver on the short side of the field, giving Oliver no room to run. Announcers thought Chazz anticipated a blitz and threw the ball quickly, but the blitz was picked up...Chazz needs to read the defense better.

and thats a drink for 3 and out...
we need to work on our 3rd and short plays

BAC .04

7:44, Isiah Moore 15 yard reception wide open in the middle of the zone.

7:20 Fred Branch with a big hit after 7 yards gained on the sweep.

6:51 McEntee boots off the playaction and scrambles for the first down.

5:41 Isiah Moore 15 yard reception wide open in the middle of the zone...again.

5:05 Uconn brings in their running QB, who runs, but Mack is all over him...8th tackle for a loss leads the nation.

4:30 Went 30 yards deep to Isiah Moore in the end zone but well covered by Josh Copeland bringing up an overthrown 3rd and 10 to the Tight End.

nice stop...

49 FG attempt coming up

by Tim Riordan

BLOCK!!! niceeeeeeeee!!

4:20 3 man rush on play action fake, Chazz takes off for a 1st down.

i love when Chazz runs

by 2010bulls

3:49 1st down on the comeback route by Alex


by 2010bulls

3:20 Ugly play looks like all the linemen cut and they were looking for a slant or screen...but nothing was open, ball thrown away.

3:17 Slant to Hughes, wide open but under thrown.

2 bad throws by Chazz in a row.. dam

by Scott Peddie

3:10 Throw to Rivers, behind him but it hit his hands...5 straight passes, 3 straight misses by Chazz and we punt.

Such a promising drive,

needed more Oliver

by bull_trojan

I went to homecoming the year before, the weather was meh, the crowd was meh, and Temple beat us down...I wish we'd play our FCS game during homecoming so I could go home happy...

How does the crowd look?

Peck said he has never seen so many students..

by Tim Riordan

UB 2020, enroll 20k more students, bump up the stadium attendance. I like it.

3:05 Uconn starts at the 15, we've dominated field position. Uconn runs, loses a yard.

2:21 Gordan dubois big sack down to the 5 yard line.

SACK. nice Dubois!

by Scott Peddie

our lines are looking dominant

offensive and defensive...

by bull_trojan

1:41 Wow they really stole our playbook...Huskies false start not called, then go with delayed hand off for no gain...4th and 21 they'll punt from their own 4. Jackson returns the punt, gets pass the 1st level of defenders but just as the excitement starts, he goes down unceremoniously.

Big stop here...

Bull Run, Get your daily dose of Bull

by Tim Riordan

Great field position starting on the 35.

Got to score here

by Bullions


1:03...thrown to Jackson, who throws to Oliver...A) pass interference not called...B) Jackson had soooo much running room,(see above) he might have scored a TD if it wasn't a trick play.

0:35 3rd and 7. Deep slant to Rivers to the 14.

End of the 1st Quarter.

The downside, we are still playing poorly executed slightly unimaginative football. The bright side, UConn is playing poorly executed slightly unimaginative football. And we're winning the special teams battle (foreshadowing). And we have the ball in the red zone!

Happy Friday, and check back next week for UConn at Buffalo 2nd Quarter.
