Spartans 28, Aztecs 17

Posted: November 10, 2020 in Uncategorized

Guess what happens when the o-line finds blocking to be optional? We lose. Sure, Caden McDonald knocked out the Spartan starting quarterback the fifth play of the game. I welcomed his replacement, Nick Nash (cool name), with full knowledge that the Aztec defense would torment him deep into the Carson night. Wrong. He did the tormenting. Who knew that a #2 qb finishing with a line of 16/25/169 would be the second coming of offensive glory. 169 yards in the air was all it took to keep our defense on the field and San Jose State in the end zone. Which team is supposed to lose: The on that gains a total of 298 yards (them) or the one with 392 total yards (us)? We were feeling generous.

Returning to our offensive line, one rushing attempt after another yielded little to nothing. Greg Bell finding, stumbling, falling forward for 111 yards was pure torture. Chance Bell fared worse averaging 2.6 yards per carry. Carson Baker was sacked not once, not twice, but three times. Further proof a lost job description courtesy of our o-line. Candidly, scoring 17 points was an achievement.

Jordan Byrd needs to retire as our punt returner. Please.

Tanner Kuljian was one of the few bright spots with 4 punts for an average of 45.8 yards. Jesse Matthew (6/139) and Daniel Bellinger (4/49) also deserve kudos.

2-1. Go, Aztecs.
