QF - Richmond @ (2) Eastern Washington

Post by Mvemjsunpx »

Given the adversity, it's pretty amazing the Spiders have made it this far. They were admittedly helped out a bit by some questionable North Dakota decisions, but they still pulled out a 3-score comeback when nobody would have blamed them for throwing in the towel. It still seems unlikely they can keep going because of all the injuries, but you never know. The big difference maker for Eastern Washington this year has been their defense. Yeah, they're still mediocre, but "mediocre" is still a big improvement over what we've seen from them the past few years. And that defense totally shut down Central Arkansas last week, holding them to 244 yards and pitching a shutout over the final 39 minutes. It also looks like Cooper Kupp will be ready to go after missing the second half last week. I like the Eagles to get the "W" because they're a better overall team than NoDak and they have the playoff experience to avoid the late-game choke job we saw last week.

Here's my assessment of the matchups & my pick for the game:


      • Quarterbacks -- Eastern Washington

        Running Backs - Richmond

        Receivers/TEs - Eastern Washington

        Offensive Line - Eastern Washington


        Defensive Line - Richmond

        Linebackers --- Richmond

        Secondary ---- (push)


        Kicking ------ Richmond

        Punting ------ Eastern Washington

        Return Teams - Eastern Washington

        Kickoffs ------ Eastern Washington





        • Richmond 31-42 Eastern Washington

First and last time you'll ever hear me say this: Go EWU. Win. Win big. Embarrass your opponent. Make them not want their head coach anymore. Thank you in advance.

OK, serious question. I'm seeing them both red. EWU maybe a little darker?

My colorblindness make me see really dark reds and greens as black and really light reds and greens as white. And when there is both red and green together, then I'm fucked.

Pretty much the same for me, although Richmond looks kind of close to magenta. I mostly have trouble with dark blue/purple.

The EWU red looks noticeably darker to me.

That was one of those games where the announcers say something like:
The Eagles won every phase of that competition
