SEMO is a team I like to take as a underdog or a favorite of LESS than a fg. The head coach and OC have shown a tendency of if they are up by two scores or more in the forth quarter they will play not to lose the game and run the clock out. I don't mean they'll run the ball off tackle every play but they will mostly run it and throw safe passes. They can take a shot if the defense gives it to them though. The back door is always open with them if the line is more than a td. The only game they have won by more that a td this season was their opening conference game at EIU. This year EIU is made up of a squad of mostly freshmen and sophomores. Meanwhile something happened at TSU Saturday night I think will effect the game. Head coach Ron Reed told the team this will be his last game coaching at TSU. Then today, according to Stadium's Brett McMurphy, Eddie George will replace Rod Reed as TSU's head coach. I expect a big effort from the Tigers as they will want to send Reed out with a win and they are auditioning for new head coach Eddie George.
