Kent’s offense has me worried, their defense? not so much. Whether or not UB’s going to prevail against the flashes will probably hinge on the secondary. Because while Kent State is very hard to stop, they’ve not dont a great job stopping anyone.
So who can move up with a big day?
JPAT: So a big day by Patterson puts Oliver’s all time record on the radar. I still think catching Branden Oliver this year is not in the cards for Jaret Patterson. But I’m not as sure as I was last week and it’s not outlandish to think he can average:
- 233 Yards a game (If UB does not win the east and does not bowl)
- 172 Yards a game (If UB does not win the east but does bowl)
- 138 Yards a game (If UB wins the east, playing in the MACC, and Bowls)
Marks: Kevin Marks has some more moving up to do this year, for sure. He’s 101 yards behind Jordan Johnson and 337 yards behind Anthony Swan. For him to catch swan he would need 112/84/68 yards (depending on the number of games).
We were back to a more subtle and utilitarian passing game again this week. But when you can run for 300 yards, what else do you really need.
Even with the mire subdued numbers Vantrease is still putting up a great QB rating on the year.
Among UB players who have attempted at least 50 passes KVT is rucking the schools third best ever passer rating.
He’s ranked 15th all time in Career Yards ( 301 yards behind Chazz Anderson ).
So why the high ranking with the low yards? The answer is, of course, he does not make a lot of mistakes. Only Drew Anderson (10:1) has a better TD/INT ratio than KVT (3.0). The next inine behind KVT is Joe Licata who was just over 2:1 (2.05).
We saw against Miami that KVT has a lot more comfort with all his receivers this year, but we have seen in the other games, when he’s not throwing too much then Antonio Nunn is going to get the bulk of the work.
He’s still ranked in the high teens but so far this year he has passed:
- Ernest Jackson
- Marcus Rivers
- Pat Whitehead
- Doc Smith
- Dick Ashley
- Fred Lee
- Marcus McGill
It would take a really solid second half of the season (and post season) to break into UB’s all time top 10, but he will be knocking on the door if he can produced as he has all year:
