Where will they go?: Carter, Jackson headline ‘Dogs at draft

The image of Ryan Mathews in Bulldog red shredding opposing defenses has become a little bit more vague with a seemingly new-and-improved Robbie Rouse. Mathews never carried the ball 43 times like Rouse did Saturday, but the tiny back from San Diego put the offense on his back in the Bulldogs’ third straight conference win. The defense, however, is going to need to tighten some things up if it has any hope to slow down a Nevada squad this weekend that posted an astonishing 844 total yards on Idaho. The unit had its moments, and surrendered just 308 yards, but looked sloppy early on in Rustin. The defense is starting to create some turnovers, a promising sign for a team that ranks in the bottom-half of the WAC in turnovers.

The Sports Desk

The first thing we learned during Saturday’s contest is that Robbie Rouse is not Ryan Mathews. This is not to say Rouse doesn’t have the potential to put up gaudy numbers, but the play calling didn’t suit his running style. With Rouse’s stature and slash-and-dash abilities, he is more suitable as a change-of-pace back rather than an every-down, between-the-tackles runner. A.J. Ellis, who is built more as a north and south runner, took only one carry between the tackles for six yards, longer than any carry Rouse had. Rouse is at his best in the open field as evidence by his 20-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter. Expect a running back by committee possibly when the ‘Dogs travel to Utah State on Sept. 18.
