2R - SEMO @ (2) Weber

Post by Mvemjsunpx »

The tale of the tape below implies that SEMO should win this game, but I think it's misleading in this case. Weber's D-line advantage is massive, and SEMO's LBs and DBs seem to be a bit better at racking up individual stats than they are at actually stopping teams—their team defensive stats (yardage, points, per-play efficiency) are mediocre despite them having a large number of TFLs, INTs, and forced fumbles. I guess you could say that the Redhawk D is a bit too all-or-nothing. Anyway… I like Weber at home in the cold & altitude here, but they'll still need to be careful because SEMO is an insane +27 in turnover margin.

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


      • Quarterbacks -- SEMO

        Running Backs - (push)

        Receivers/TEs - SEMO

        Offensive Line - SEMO


        Defensive Line - Weber St.

        Linebackers --- SEMO

        Secondary ---- SEMO


        Kicking ------ Weber St.

        Punting ------ Weber St.

        Return Teams - Weber St.

        Kickoffs ------ Weber St.





        • SEMO 16-28 Weber St.

Weber over all "D" should prevail.

Exactly. Weber's D seems to be better than the sum of its parts, while SEMO's D seems to be weaker than the sum of its parts.
