Thanks for reading! That Kansas State game was the toughest college game for me to pick, so I can definitely see your point.

On Pick 6: Best bets for Week 3 of college football

Most deep throws in the video I created are simple 3-step drops for Carter Stanley. He throws to his first read on the final step. Not every deep pass play needs a bunch of time.

He only played 28 snaps the week before, per PFF. That doesn't necessarily explain his lack of usage in Week 2. But I'd guess that formations used and lower number of pass attempts factored into this more than anything else.

ShaneJackson (Shane Jackson) says...

Good point. Yeah, I didn't keep track of what downs the deep passes took place on. But that Parchment bomb in the Indiana State game was on first down, and then Stanley also tried to hit Parchment on the first play of the game against Coastal Carolina. It certainly makes sense to take a shot on first down when the defense is expecting run.

I thought about it, but figured we have written a ton about Pooka this week and will write a ton more this weekend. Decided to mix things up, and Hubbard is coming off an incredible performance.

ShaneJackson (Shane Jackson) says...

Thanks, Kevin! Got the two mixed up. Hubbard should ball out no matter what though.

The blog I linked to was about turnovers gained. At the FBS level, history would suggest those teams fall back to the pack. I'm not sure if there is a similar pattern at the FCS level, my guess is that there is. But that many returning starters on an offense that took care of the ball last year is worth noting.

Even though I'm the president of the Marcus Garrett fan club, I was surprised that he was second as well. I think it is important to remember how good he was at getting downhill before his ankle injury though. I wouldn't predict Garrett to be second on the team in scoring either, but I think he's capable of averaging close to double figures.
