Have a Day, Blake Bone

Junior wide receiver Blake Bone’s diminishing role was reversed when Jeff Badet left the game with a hip pointer.  Needing a spark on the outside, Bone did not back down from the challenge.

Entering the game with only two catches for 14 yards, Bone provided big plays when the Cats desperately needed them.  He had two receptions today for a team-high 57-yards.  Each catch came with spectacular footwork down the sideline, using his toes to stay inbounds.

This catch was initially ruled incomplete.  The third down bomb kept the drive alive.

Unfortunately, the Cats couldn’t capture the momentum, fumbling points away in the red zone.

    If any game proves you must at least be able to have some sort of passing game, this is it. 400+ yards on the ground, yet our LEADING pass catcher for the day has 57 yards?? Kudos to our backs who are running into 7-8 defenders in the box, but still grinding out chunks. When in the red zone, the field shrinks up and DB’s are closer yet, not remotely concerned with any passes for TDs. Man this is brutal!

    If any game proves anything, it is the need for defensive coordinator that can recruit and figure out how to contain a mobile QB. Whatever the scheme, it has not worked effectively for 4 years against any team with a winning record. I am not optimistic this program EVER gets to the next level without it.

    So what was the ref thinking on that call? He made no gesture to indicate that Bone was out of bounds or that he bobbled the ball. He just signaled incomplete.

    How do you miss a call like that? The ref was right on top of it. Couldn’t have had a better look.
