When was the last time Drake played the same team in two consecutive games?

They did play Simpson back to back in the team's first season.  Drake only played three games that year.

I don't know of anything like that in Drake's NCAA era.  The Bulldogs played the Arkansas State Indians twice in 1969 (once in a bowl), but those weren't consecutive games.

Chief Big Track and entourage, on the day they were retired as Arkansas State mascots.

Plenty of blown opportunities in a 10-7 loss today.  Wendling taking a sack that moved Drake out of fg range was especially troubling.

While the passing game seemed to get a going a little against Valpo I continue to have concern with the offense and wonder about some of the play calling... anyone else have thoughts on Valpo game 2.0

Yep. I've been holding back, but the one I don't understand is the third down play on their last possession. Third and one, backed up not far from the goal line, and the game undoubtedly on the line. Couldn't believe the q.b. wasn't lined up under center. Instead, he's lined up for a long snap, fakes a handoff and goes back to throw. What?
That was the game. No q.b. sneak or handoff at the line for one yard? Even if they didn't make it, they could have gone for it again on the 4th. Nothing to lose at that point.
A couple of other bad calls, plus they shot themselves in the foot a couple of times with some silly penalties.

Dog67 - We are on the same page!! Could not believe that call, and glad I’m not alone on that. It was the game and for an O that’s has been run heavy all year, to have a long developing play like that given the situation.. WHAT!?

I was happy to see a little more pass/ balance 30-Run 22 -Pass, but there needs to be more pass/balance, more unpredictable play calling, more plays, more offense!!

Yep, Cross was running really well, all game. Can't believe you don't go under center with a sneak or a handoff to Cross in that situation.

Get the first down/ move the sticks, and have a chance to pick up more yards throwing with a new set of downs... textbook.

Btw according to NCAA, 2nd worst offense this season is Drake averaging 165 per game after 3 games

I was listening more than watching the game.  Seems like they had problems getting plays and/or substitutions in.  The result was a either a rushed play or a time out.  Would like to see them improve on that.

Was the last drive in the 4th a read option play by the QB for the sack?  I couldn't believe the play call either, go under center.  Overall, I don't feel that the QB has the arm strength to stretch the field and the rainbow catch for the large gain was the highlight of the passing game.  Lot of work to do on offense including blocking schemes as well. 

Nice crowd and great to see college football again :)

Yes the last drive...   some pretty questionable play calls.... One would think that after playing the same team 2 weeks ago and seeing 3 games on tape the offense could manage more than 7 points after scoring 17 in the previous game....  on a positive note it was the most yards in a game this season as a total and passing.  Sometimes you have to work with the players you have and tailor the offense/ plays that they can best succeed... that's the job of a coach.
