Tulsa @ ULM: Quarterbacks, RB's, WR's
QB Paul Smith
Posted Aug 23, 2007
Tulsa travels to Monroe, Louisiana to take on the ULM Warhawks on ESPN2 Thursday August 30th at 6PM. WarhawkNation takes a took at the positional matchups and breaks down advantages and disadvantages for both teams.
Right off the bat both of these quarterbacks have something in common. Both were named to the Davey O’Brien Pre Season watch list. Paul will be a senior with over 26 starts for the Tulsa Hurricane, and Kinsmon will enter his second year as the starting quarterback. So far statistically there is no comparison. Paul has a career completion percentage of just over 64% while Lancaster is a shade over 57%. Touchdown to interception ration has Paul at 36/16 and Lancaster at 7/15. The most important stat though is the one that counts the most, wins. Paul has a career record of 17 – 9 and Kinsmon sits at 4 – 8. On paper it looks like a total blowout and it might be but remember Lancaster got valuable experience last year as a first time quarterback. Over the last 4 games he only turned the ball over 1 time and the team finished 3-1. Paul Smith is a quarterback that is smart and can beat you with his arm or his legs. The ULM defense is going to have to contain Paul and keep him in the pocket as he has over 500 career rushing yards and another 15 scores.
Advantage = Tulsa
So far it has been bad news for the Hurricane. Senior running back
tore his ACL and is out for the season. Tennial was projected as the starting running back and led the team last year with 845 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns. That job will be left to Junior
. Adams was second on the team last year rushing for 329 yards and 2 scores. For the ULM Warhawks, they return All SBC rusher
. Dawson ran for 1,210 yards and scored 11 touchdowns as a Junior. Calvin got up for the big games as well rushing for over 100 yards in each of ULM’s games vs SEC opponents (Bama, Kentucky, Arkansas). Backing up Dawson will be RS Freshman
. Goodin will be one to watch next year when Dawson graduates and will provide little or no loss in production this season when he spells Dawson.
Advantage = ULM
The Ulm Warhawks will have its 3 top returning receivers back for the 2007 season. Juniors
, Darrell McNeil and Zeek Zacharie all started every game last year as sophomores and bring big experience and big targets for qb Kinsmon Lancaster. Sapp led the SBC with 796 yards and added 3 scores. McNeil and Zacharie combined for another 55 receptions and 4 touchdowns. Zeek Zacharie was also nominated to the preseason John Mackey TE watch list for 2007. The Tulsa Hurricane will need someone to step up quickly as they lost their top 3 recievers from a year ago. So far it looks as if Juco transfer Dion Toliver will the number one guy with
as the other contributors. Last year Henderson caught 3 passes for 26 yards and one score while TE Curtis hauled in 13 receptions for 93 yards.
Advantage = ULM
