Week 5:

Louisiana-Laf at Geneva Bible

Louisiana-Laf was talked about as taking the Sun Belt conference by storm, and was rated #1 in the conference. We were lucky if we finished 7th. So going into this game, we were yet again the underdogs fighting to make a name for ourselves.

And boy did we. A 4 yard run by RB Neil Ingram set us up by a touchdown in the early 2nd quarter, but a quick return touchdown by Louisiana-Laf showed us they were willing to fight. Or so we thought. In the 3rd quarter, Ingram ran another touchdown, this time 80 yards, while QB L Stevens threw a TD to WR Brenton Rodriguez, his 2nd passing TD catch, then an interception ran back for a touchdown by ILB Robert Miller and finally a 31 yard field goal by our K L. Crooks. All unanswered. The final score when it was all said and done, was Geneva 31, Louisiana-Laf 7.

QB L. Stevens went 6 for 22, for 96 yards, a touchdown, 0 Interceptions, and a sack.

RB N. Ingram ran 32 times for 205 yards and 2 touchdowns. He also got Player of the Game, the third time in a row now.

Our Defense forced 4 interceptions, 1 ran back for a TD, and another mind blowing number - 7 sacks.

ILB Cory Green sprained his ACL which has kept him off the field for a couple weeks now, but after this week of practice, Coach finally decided to put him in play and feel out how he does in game situations. OG Ellis Barnett unfortunately has came to a stand still with his healing, his severe spinal trauma hasn't been affected much this past week. Week to week basis is really all we will know. WR Joel Cotton's elbow is still bothering him so Coach will sit him this week, again... just to be sure he's fine. OT Dan Crocker and his deviated septum injury to his nose hasn't gotten any better either, so Crocker is in the same position he was last week. DT John Bray dislocated his shoulder during the game, and is out indefinitely for the next week. FS Alfred Hines has a skull fracture in his head.

Week 6:

Louisiana-Monroe at Geneva Bible

Finally Geneva wasn't being talked about as the underdog, and we might have let that get to our heads. We went into the matchup with Louisiana-Monroe with the concept that they'd be as easy as last week, only to find out what happens when you get prideful...

The first two quarters were a defensive struggle, neither team could get any offense going until RB Neil Ingram broke free with a 16 YD run for a TD. At half we were up 7-0, but Coach warned us that we had to start playing with all of our hearts, because what we were playing wasn't going to get us the win. I don't think anyone took him seriously.

At the start of the 3rd Quarter, Louisiana-Monroe pushed the ball up the field in under a minute and got a TD. Their kicker missed the extra point so we held the lead up until QB L. Stevens threw an interception late in the 3rd, and Monroe's defense ran it back for another TD. They went for 2 to try to put themselves up by 2 touchdowns but failed. The last quarter consisted of two field goals for them, as our offense gave up interception after interception, two of them to be exact in the 4th quarter.

Our turnovers lost that game, with 3 fumbles, 3 interceptions... we didn't play like we wanted the win, and so we got the loss. This game was ours for the taking, and we didn't take it.

QB L. Stevens went 14 for 34, for 146 yards, 0 touchdowns, 3 Interceptions, 2 sacks, and 5 terrible passes.

RB N. Ingram ran 29 times for 111 yards and 1 touchdown. He also was responsible for one of the fumbles, and the only fumble that was lost.

Our Defense however, had 1 forced fumble and a high number that's becoming normal - 6 sacks.

OG Ellis Barnett is still trying to heal up, getting better much more rapidly than anyone expected. He could see playing time much more sooner than the next month and a half. OT Dan Crocker and his deviated septum injury to his nose has gotten a lot better, and Coach should be playing him this week. DT John Bray is trying to play through his dislocated shoulder but Coach is still slightly hesistant to put him in. He might see playing time, but chances are he'll get another week to recover before Coach throws him to the wolves. FS Alfred Hines and his skull fracture to his head is getting much better, should be playing this week or next. FB Charles Lopez has an injury to his head but is desperately wanting to play, Coach will make a decision last minute.
