BLAZER WEEKLY


BLAZERS HEAD INTO FINAL GAME AFTER
MUCH NEEDED BYE WEEK

The UAB Blazers found out Sunday that they are now #4 in the BCS after their bye week. With Utah and Oregon on a collision course for the Pac-12 conference championship game Boise knows they can atleast move up to #3.
"We know the scenarios and I'm sure the players are excited and buying nto that and thats good, but, I tell them everyday we need to focus on our task infront of us and it'll pan out." Said head coach Travis Rhatigan. During the bye week the team has looked focused and determined. Rhatigan talked about how the guys came in on their own to watch film during the week and practice wasn't going through the motion they really got after it, they definitely need to focus because The Blazers will have to finish the season without Star tailback Matthew Scott, but the nations leading return man Roderick Brooks has embraced his new roll as the teams starting tailback. Brooks has taken about 80 percent of the reps at practice and is fitting in quite fine according to starting quarterback Wayne Smith.
"Naturally he's a tailback, so its nothing new for him. We're just trying to help him out with the blocking schemes and some of our new in game checks. He'll be fine and we're glad he's ready to carry on what Scott started."
The Blazers travel to Houston to take on the 1-10 Rice Owls. Kickoff is slated for 6pm this Saturday.

RECRUITING NEWS
The Blazers grabbed three more commitments during the bye week. Three star corners Darrell Jones out of Adamsville, Alabama and Davin Alston out of Belle Glade Florida, also two star center Shannon Wesley out of Adamsville.
"We got luck with the Adamsville kids, after Miller signed he convinced his old friends to hope on board, we have a good pipeline going on with them." Said Travis Rhatigan on getting three kids from Adamsville North High School. The Blazers now have three corners locked in during this recruiting class, something that was huge for the staff.
"After this season we'll only have three corners on the roster so our main priority was to go out and get good conerbacks. Will our style of play these young men all have a chance to come in a get on the field early. We currently are waiting on one more kid From Quincy Florida who can play corner or safety for us, so as far as our defensive back field we feel we definitely hav better ourselves with these signings."


Head Coach Travis Rhatigan spoke to the media about Rice and their number 4 ranking.


Opening Statement: We enjoyed a successful bye week, put in some new wrinkles and took good looks at Gore and Brooks in the backfield for us. We also studied up on Rice. Despte their 1-10 record they have some athletes. They have a gunslinger who gives his recievers a chance to go up and get it and he's a big guy at 6-7 we'll need to make sure we wrapped up when we get a chance to hit him. We plan on being as aggressive as before Scott went down and look to really set a statement heading into our conference championship game.

Game Notes
Last game of the season for both teams. UAB has clinched a spot in the conference USA championship game but are looking for bigger and better things with their new #4 ranking. With the #7 total offense and #15 total defense this game should be a cake walk for UAB. Rice and quarterback B. Wesley hasn't had much success this season. Wesley has thrown 15 interceptions and only 16 touchdowns, with leading receiver M. Hicks status for the game in question Wesley will have no true play maker to throw too. This does in fact mark the first game UAB will play without tailback Matthew Scott this season so this could be the x-factor but the Blazers put the nations most exciting return men in the back field and that should help out a lot.

Prediction: Rice will make it competitive but UAB is to determined Blazers 41-Rice 21

Re: "Dragon Breath" A UAB Dynasty (NCAA12)

I dont know what this new update or tuning was about but its pissing me off to the point of not wanting to play, If I pass the ball its either very badly under thrown or over thrown by 10 yards, makes for not so fun to play!!!! 7 interceptions in two games and this game isnt even over yet, 7-7 with a 1-10 rice in the third quarter right now!!!

SQUEEZED THROUGH!!
FRESHMEN MATT FORD'S 95 YARD KICKOFF RETURN LIFTS BLAZERS OVER FEISTY RICE, 38-35

"FRESHMEN MATT FORD GOES 95 YARDS FOR THE SCORE"

____________________
ASSOCIATED PRESS

HOUSTON, TEXAS--- Free Safety Mark Parrish intercepted Brett Wesley's pass in the final seconds and Wayne Smith to a knee as time expired to lift UAB to a 38-35 victory over Rice on Saturday afternoon.
Wesley turned the ball over twice, including a key interception that led to a Blazers touchdown in the third quarter to tie the game at 28 all.
Wayne Smith also had problems early getting sacked three times and throwing three picks, but shrugged them off to throw for 321 yards and three straight third quarter touchdowns as the Blazers (12-0) held on to stop the upset minded Rice Owls (1-11)
--
"WAYNE SMITH STRUGGLED EARLY ON IN THE GAME"

Wesley threw for 436 yards and four touchdowns for the Owls both career best, but ended up making one mistake too many in Clutch moments.
Wesley threw two touchdown passes in early stages of the third quarter to put the Owls up seven and had a chance to go up 14 points before he overthrew a pass into the arms of Blazer corner Bryan Wyatt, who fell down at the 16 yard line. After a terrible first half Wayne Smith relaxed and after the turnovers threw his third straight touchdown pass, this time for 84 yards to senior James Moses to tie the game.
"Its the little things that have hurt us all year." Said quarterback Brett Wesley. "We really felt like we matched up well with these guys, but the difference between them and us is they know how to win, they dig deep and we dont, very disappointing."

"RICE QUARTERBACK BRETT WESLEY THREW FOR OVER 400 YARDS BUT THREW TWO COSTLY INT'S"

After Rice broke a 7-7 deadlock, Smith was able to rally the Blazers score for score in a quarter that saw a combined 42 points. Tailback Roderick Brooks also enjoyed a good game, making big time runs to keep drives alive including a 54 yard touchdown run to open the game up.
But the story of the night went to Freshmen receiver Matt Ford, after getting assigned the teams returner since Brooks is now the starting tailback Ford took advantage of every moment averaging 46.5 yards per kick return. But none was more special than his 95 yard return for a score with 1:57 left in the game. The Blazers took a small 31-28 lead at the beginning of the fourth quarter, but Wesley led a 13 play four in a half minute drive that ended with a touchdown pass to J. Hicks to put them back up 35-31 and it seemed like the dagger as they completed 4 of 4 on third down.
The ensuing kickoff saw Ford start right then cut all the way back to the left side of the field before turning on the jets and going the distance.
The Blazer sideline ran in unison with Ford own the sideline as he pulled away from the defenders.
"I cut back and saw daylight" said an exhausted Ford after the game. "My teammates did a great job holding blocks and the good Lord helped me blaze to the finish line."

"FORD ALSO HAULED IN A 62 YARD TOUCHDOWN RECEPTION IN THE THIRD QUARTER"

The momentum swung in UAB's favor and on the next drive Parrish picked off Wesley to seal the deal. Both teams combined for 972 yards of offense. Ford had 265 all purpose yards. UAB middle linebacker Tom Slaughter grabbed 13 tackles including a sack on the final drive.

"Just a roller coaster of a game, (sigh) glad its over." stated Coach Travis Rhatigan. "Those guys on the sideline, gave everything, I admire their performance today."

"SENIOR FS MARK PARRISH GRABS HIS 8TH INT OF THE SEASON, THIS ONE TO CLOSE OUT ANY RICE COMBACK"

The Blazer now get ready for the conference championship game in two weeks as they found out after the game they will be hosting it.

A drama filled week 14 was marked by by heartbreaking loses for those contending for a chance at a National Title and close victories for teams on the rise. Here are the Scores and headlines for week 14.

Top 25 Scores
(ALL RANKINGS REFLECT NEW POLLS)

#1 Oregon over Oregon State 38-35
#2 TCU over Notre Dame 28-23
#3 UAB over Rice 38-35
#4 Alabama over #24 Auburn 38-16
#5 Boise State over Fresno State 27-18
#6 Penn State over #25 Illinois 28-18
#7 Baylor over KSU 42-25
#8 Arkansas over #14 LSU 48-28
#9 Virginia Tech over UVA 31-13
#11 Wisconsin loses to #21 Nebraska 40-28
#12 Iowa over Michigan State 41-28
#13 Utah loses to Cal 32-21
#15 Georgia Tech over Georgia 40-14
#16 Oklahoma over Iowa State 23-0
#17 Miami (OH) over CMU 38-0
#19 Duke over UNC 26-14
#20 Texas A&M over Texas 28-20
#22 Ohio State over Michigan 40-7
#23 Miami over BC 17-3

HEADLINES:

SUNKEN FEELING: Utes falter for first time with embarrassing 31-21 loss to 5-7 Cal. Up 21-17 in the fourth quarter Utah gave up 15 un answered points. Utah was just 4 of 11 on third downs while Cal was 10 of 14. Cal also gained over 200 yards on the ground. Utah will face #1 Oregon in the conference Championship in two weeks.

12-0! #1 Oregon caps undefeated season with a dramatic come from behind win in the Civil War vs Oregon State. Down 35-31 with 41 seconds left Oregon quarterback J. Miller found receiver D. Bell in the back of the end zone on fourth down to go up 38-35. Oregon State would then fumble on the ensuing kickoff giving the Ducks the dramatic victory.

DOWNED! Badgers #5 Badgers fall victim to an unlikely Nebraska team (8-4) While Penn State kept their hopes for a conference championship alive by beating Iowa 45-21. Iowa had a chance to clinch a spot in the Big Ten title game but now fall into a three way tie with Nebraska and Michigan, the loss by Wisconsin now ties them and Penn State in the other division but the tie breaker goes to Wisconsin who defeated Penn state 31-13 earlier this season.

THE SURPRISING BLAZERS: The #3 Blazers are 12-0 and are playing as well as anybody in the Nation. The Blazers will play Houston in the conference usa championship game in Birmingham in two weeks. A win and the Blazers could very well find themselves in the BCS title game.

Still High!!! All is well in Fayetteville as the Razorbacks claimed the SEC West title by beating LSU 48-28. The Razorbacks will face off against defending conference champ South Carolina in the SEC championship who they beat earlier this year convincingly 45-17.

HEISMAN WATCH:
DUKE'S PRIDE: Quarterback Nick Copeland strengthens his Heisman candidacy after leading Duke to Victory. Here are the top five leading candidates.
  1. Christian Harper QB-Wisconsin (3,036 pass 35td 3int, 726 rush 9td)
  2. Chris Herron RB-TCU (1,056 rush 16td, 354 rec 5td)
  3. Joe Johnson QB-NEB (2,812 pass 21td 12int, 816 rush 16td)
  4. Nick Copeland QB-Duke (3,258 pass 35td 4int, 569 rush 7td)
  5. Kyle Francis QB-Utah (2,844 pass 33td 4int, 478 rush 7td)
Mark May's Thoughts!
Photobucket

Pressure burst pipes but as we have witnessed the last few weeks it ruins seasons. Two weeks ago Fresno State was 9-0 and looking for respect, well they got disrespected with back to back losses to Nevada and Boise State. What about LSU? After a huge over the hump win over Alabama, the Tigers were #1 in the country but faltered the next two weeks and are now scrapping for a new years day bowl. The latest victim Utah. After losing Biletnikoff semi-finalist receiver W. Turner the Utes still beat Colorado 52-0, they squeaked by Oregon State 38-30 but then Cal exposed them reeling off 15 straight points in the fourth quarter. What Im saying is if your a contender pressure is gonna be with you week in and week out, the ones who dont answer to it and play there game will be the ones standing last.

BCS TOP 10:

  1. OREGON 12-0
  2. TCU 12-0
  3. UAB 12-0
  4. ALABAMA 10-2
  5. PENN STATE 10-2
  6. BOISE STATE 9-2
  7. BAYLOR 10-1
  8. VIRGINIA TECH 10-2
  9. ARKANSAS 11-1
  10. NEVADA 10-1
Here are the top five receiving yards leaders in the NCAA
  1. Tyree Veney (TTU) 103 rec, 1,569 yrds 18td
  2. Sam Haynes (SU) 86 rec, 1,450 yrds 13td
  3. Ricky Harvey (Ore St) 87 rec, 1,432 yrds 16td
  4. Kyle Davis (LaTech) 87 rec, 1,326 yrds 13td
  5. Josh Johnson (UofH) 86 rec, 1,303 yrds 17td
There are no games that affect the BCS this week, but we do have the Army-Navy game this week, enjoy your week, we'll see you next week.

BLAZER WEEKLY

WEEK 15 BYE WEEK
BLAZERS USE BYE WEEK TO GET READY FOR HOUSTON WHO THEY'LL FACE IN CONFERENCE CHAMPIONSHIP AT HOME ON LEGION FIELD


If you dont understand how big this game is, then go ask Houston's coach Kevin Sumlin who stated in his weekly presser " It's Blazer week, for the next two week's." You see the coach knows how focused he and his team have to be when coming here to Legion field.
(LAST YEARS GAME RECAP)
http://www.operationsports.com/forum...post2042637539
The Blazers routed the then undefeated Cougars 52-21 here in Birmingham last season, led by outstanding defensive performance by this year seniors Tom Slaughter and Jerry Bowser. But theres more on the line this time for the Blazers as they have a shot at a national title if Oregon slps up in the Pac-12 championship.
"We're not even thinking aboout that right now." stated head coach Travis Rhatigan. "We want to have a good week of practice this week and then transition it over into game week next week."
He wasn't hesitant however to ask the fans to come out and support the Blazers. In fact UAB under Rhatigan has not lost a home game in two years now and are 12-0. Making Legion field a definite up and coming tough stadium to play at.
"Most definitely, we need the house packed and jamming, this will be the first and last conference championship on Legion field so we need it to be special." ~Rhatigan
With a little under two weeks to go I'm sure the word will be passed.

Recruiting News
Blazers grabbed another commitment during the bye week as three star receiver Bill Cooley out of one of the nations best High School's in country in Hoover out of Alabama. Cooley is a rangy 6'3 196 pound receiver who clocked a 4.44 in the Nike combine last summer, a Home body he chose UAB over Troy and Auburn.
"I know theres a chance I'll geet red shirted but I dont mind. I like what coach Rhat is doing here, he also has a great offense and gets his receiver the ball and more importantly they win." Said an excited Cooley after making his commitment at a assembly to in school.

Coach Rhatigan speaks to the media about Rice, and the bye week.

Opening Statements:
Honestly very disappointed in how lethargic we came out, I know there was no real atmosphere there playing in front of 8,000 fans but we almost ruined our season to a team we know we're better than. Give credit to Rice they came out on their Senior day and made it all business, I'm just glad in the second half we woke up and decided to play. I was glad to see Matt Ford grab another good game, he's a special talent and to think we almost red shirted him. Gotta love how the defense stepped up in Ideal moments in the game, down seven with them driving and Wyatt grabs the pick for us that in my mind changed the whole game. No one is even talking about the steady play of Brooks, after being named a finalist for the returner of the year a week ago and then stripped of that duty to be our starting running back and the kids quietly rushes for for a score and 131 yards, proud of his maturity to that sense. For the first bye week, we'll study a lot of film on Houston and also their receiver Josh Johnson. we'll do some conditioning and and some formation talked with light walk thru's throughout the week. I want our guys to get their legs under them.
