Griz Football Prepares for Weber

Posted: Updated:

While the Griz football team hosts a team tomorrow that is winless in conference play, there's certainly more intrigue than any other 1-9 team would bring to Missoula.

There are many story lines for the Griz Weber State game this weekend.  It's senior day, a must win for Montana, and of course the return of robin Pflugrad who brings his hurry up offense back to Missoula.

"I mean we are all very familiar with that offense we went against it all of last year, and then the guys previous when Pflugrad was here, so going into this game we feel like we know this offense.  There is a few things that they do differently but other than that as a defense I feel like this is gut check time," said Sophomore Defensive Tackle Caleb Kidder.

"I mean we know what they're going to do it's just a matter of who's doing it and how we react to it.  You know there will be some tricks Coach Pflugrad will put in some reverses and reverse throwbacks and things like that and that's one thing that I think personality wise it's good to know some of the things that we practiced for a couple years," said Griz Head Coach Mick Delaney.

But the Weber State offense has not seen the success with Pflugrad that he had at Montana.  The Wildcats are only averaging 15 points a game but they have played better as of late.

"And they have switched quarterbacks going with a true freshman quarterback who is a really athletic guy and they're making a lot of progress and they are a good football team right now.  They play solid on defense, they play hard and they just keep going and going and they bring a lot of pressure on the defensive side and offensively they are running the ball against everybody," said Delaney.

With Montana State lurking next week you have to worry about a possible let down, or trap game this Saturday, but Griz players say that won't be the case.

"For me personally it's my last regular season home game so I'm not going to have any problem getting up for that game," said Senior O-lineman William Poehls.

"We haven't even started talking about Montana State but I know it's on everybody's mind but Coach Ty has told us we have to be 9-2 before we can be 10-2," said Kidder.

Kickoff is at noon and you can watch it on your local Max Media station.
