I watched Cal Poly this year.
One dimensional...and with a QB worse than UNI..
Remember that the program that still holds the record for I-AA/FCS national titles at 6 was a one dimensional option football team throughout its tenure except for a short hiccup for a handful of years. In addition to winning those 6 it was a contender a number of other times even into losing a 23-20 nail biter to North Dakota State in the 2012 semifinals in what was probably the real national championship game (North Dakota State beat Sam Houston State 39-13 the following week in the championship game).
The stats weren't up yet when I posted last night but now I can see that San Diego outgained Cal Poly by 473 to 195 in total yards. They totally dominated that game. What's amazing is that they dominated the lines of scrimmage both ways and on the screen they looked completely over matched size wise.
You looked at them on the screen and it looked like a high school team playing a college team but by golly they got it done leaving no doubt. Kept wondering if they'd find a way to lose anyway and thought maybe they would after Cal Poly got that pick six but they showed some real intestinal fortitude on their next offensive possession to put it away. Made a couple of really great plays...great throws combined with great catches...on that drive.
Just an outstanding "make plays" effort by San Diego.
