do or die

Driving through the Dakotas, last week......
So, back with another, this week...


Just made it for kickoff......something about the Manitoba Moose....
 Santos Knox picks off Glenn's first pass......
 Medlock misses 48 yd FG attempt...
 Carter with bad decision to run it out of end zone....
 Good Fogg punt return has Blue set up deep....
 Nichols still telegraphing some throws......
 ...but then looks off, and hits Denmark in middle of end zone...
 DE Jeffcoat back to early season form....
 Glenn finds wide open Cartier, who completes 85 yd pass and run TD....
 Better push inside on DL.....Glenn sacked couple of times, already...
 Fogg back to field punt, on one side....while Leggett suddenly appears on the other...
 Rider punt  coverage pulled to wrong side....Moe beats one man....
 .....and is off to the races 95 yds for punt return TD.   Some MOS trickery.
 Medlock bombs punt over Carter's head for 85 yd single.....
 Glenn has Roosevelt open past Heath, up the middle......
 ...Walker pinballs right off of the receiver.....who takes it the distance.....
 The long pass plays given up on D.....continues.  15-13 Bombers.
 Crapinga tries surprise short kickoff.....but Blue recover..
 Nichols putting mustard on the passes, today.....
 Matt then throws to corner of end zone......
 Nothing wrong in the state of Denmark.   Denny has his 2nd TD.
 Glenn completes 5 passes.....the last to Bagg, down to the 1.
 Lafrance punches it in.......22-20 Bombers
 In last minute....Adams falls down, untouched in end zone.....
 .....and draws phantom "accidental" penalty......
 No idea why Jones does not challenge that one.
 29-20 Bombers at the end of a wacky first half....
 A. Harris not a factor, at all.....so far...
 Bomber D on pace to give up over 500 yds passing.....
 Medlock pounds long kickoff single......
 Rider ST unit, not having a good day....
 Mr. Leggett outfights Holley for 50/50 ball......
 ....then breaks Roosevelt's tackle.....and takes it all the way.....
 38-20......comfortable lead....but with our D, one never knows....
 Glenn goes down......and comes up holding his throwing hand...
 In goes Bridge.....who promptly hits a......you guessed it....
 ......yet another wide open receiver (Holley) for 6.
 Bridge runs in 2 pt convert......38-28.....not cooled out, just yet...
 JFG and Harris get first downs, into Rider territory....
 Bombers hurry out of the huddle.....and Nichols puts it up...
 ....to a wide open (repetitive, I know) Lankford in the end zone....
 Bridge looking a bit less of a comer, at this point....
 Mike Miller does not take no for answer on special teams....
 Bombers start to eat up clock , with Harris.....
 Flanders catch/run to the 3....negated by penalty.
 Medlock makes it 48-28.   Comfortable, at this point....
 Nichols scrambles.....no slide....and keeps going for 40....
 ...until ball is punched out of his hands, for the turnover....
 However, Randle picks off Bridge in next series.....
 Harris pounds away, as the Blue kill the clock.
 Nichols 3 TD/0 picks.....Blue special teams very good....
 Blown coverages and 250 yds in YAC.....not what you want on D.
 But Bombers now 8-3.   Riders pushed back to pretender status....
 Another huge win, at IGF...
 Another huge gin for DOD.....
Most people would sooner die than think; in fact, they do so."

......Definitely the 'pretender status' label fits Sask. do or die.....They have been living in a bit of a green cloud of late and we have just blown their cover.......AND not only were the riders fooled by Mike O's trickery....I'm still looking for the ball on the opposite side of the field myself where it was feigned to go....Excellent call and one for the books, one that has me still laughing as I remember the look on Jonesies face....It looked similar to this :o
...one of the most integral parts overlooked in conversation....is to hear what\'s NOT being said....Anonymous

That mis-direction punt return was on youtube a while ago, can't find it today but I'm sure it was a high school team.
MOS on the post game show tried to deny the fact it was designed, he was busted by Doug Brown, both laughing.
We will see it again.
And yes, Corky got screwed.

IMO it was a tough game for Kyle Knox.  Santos-Knox seemed to be in on a lot of plays and significantly more noticeable that Kyle has been all season. 

The first half was killer with the long plays, or the "explosion plays" we were giving up.  It seemed like the offense was going to have to bail out the D.  Second half though I think our secondary did a nice job, especially on Carter and Roosevelt.  Our Dline was noticeable in a good way too.  So, was it the D-ends being amped up or sitting down Nevis that helped?  Probably moreso the D-ends having a solid game.  As DoD hinted, Jeffcoat had disappeared there for a bit and had a big game, Okpalaugo probably one of his better ones so far this year as well. 

Harris with another big game.  Guy's been incredible to watch.

Darvin Adams is one of the most underrated receivers in the league. 

Officials were brutal.  Darvin Adams did trip himself up, not a PI IMO.  But there were brutal calls both ways.  Another one that stood out to me was a terrible illegal block call on Goosen.  Can't remember all the calls but there were quite a few that left you head scratching.  The talk about the officiating has subsided after they cut down on the challenges, but that doesn't mean they've gotten better.

I know its a week old now but just found this clip of TJ Heath mic'd up at The Banjo Bowl.
Best part is watching Carter walk off while an interception is going on.
Also how the boys set up an interception, they called it!

Great fun to watch...
