The Bulldogs will face the best running back in the league, Robert Washington.  Gotta stop him and make Valpo throw the ball.  Get some turnovers.

Gain more than 25 yards of total offense.

Not so sure about that plan. Seems to me the rush defense was pretty good against San Diego and the pass defense was pretty weak. San Diego seemed to pass at will and had some nice gainers. I feel that the rush defense, at least based on last week's performance, can hold its own.

I'm no coach, but when the other team's guy had 199 yards last week, stopping him would seem to be your plan.

I guess you wanted to register a complaint about the pass defense.  Point taken.

That's exactly what I'm saying...that is, I don't think we have to worry about their running game that much. I'm more worried that their throwing the ball will relinquish more yardage than 
their running game. San Diego's receivers were wide open most of the game. Our rushing defense will take care of itself, based on last week's performance, even if this Washington kid is the next Willie Gallimore.

Valpo's passing game will not be as good USD's... Drake D was stout against the run and their line is solid, so it was quite impressive to see the job the run defense did.  As noted above even if Washington is a superb running back, that only takes you so far...still need holes to run through, and if he gets 120 yards and TD it will be a good day for the Defense.  The pass D needs to continue to improve and avoid the big penalties (PI) which gave them 2 key first downs.  The real question will be if the O can move the ball and put points on the board!!  Valpo interior D will not be nearly as stout as USD and they should be able to run the ball some both inside and outside( where they need to run more) and get the passing game going with some quick passes to set up the intermediate and longer passes.

Looks like there were a few changes to the lineup.  Nienhuis and Meis giving the Drake offense a little bit of juice this week.  Baby steps...

Valpo pulled Washington out after 3 carries/14 yards.  Might be hurt.
