MSU has always been a tough team to prepare for and play, they have quite the talent pool and especially their gifted Prop Simbaresh or Simba as we who know and call him. Currently MSU has a 1 win and 1 loss record with a win over SMU and the loss coming from LeTourneau, I truly expect them to come out and play their usual style of game. Forwards bang hard, ruck and maul hard, then give the ball to their speedy Wings.
We must play a complete game this coming weekend and cannot allow MSU to be in it early, this is a dangerous team.
This coming weekend, we will be without a couple of players due to family obligations or school, we will continue to play those that want and are ready to play. Last weekend, I was able to sub in 7 players into the match and I'm looking to do the same this weekend with 7 different players.
The UT Dallas Women will be playing Sam Houston State after the men's game. Not much is known about the Sam Houston Women except they are talented and have experience. This could be what our girls need to see how far they have progressed. I know they'll be able to put on the same kind of game they played against Rice University 2 weekends ago.
Sam Houston will be traveling with about 13 ladies, therefore we'll probably play 10's (meaning 10 players on each side, instead of the usual 7's or 15's as many of you are used to watching with the men).
I'm looking forward to this opening weekend with both teams in action after each other, since we didn't get that opportunity 2 weeks ago.
If anyone has any questions or comments, feel free to contact me and I'll do my best to answer them for you.
