Lion Football fans have been waiting a long time to get back to Memorial Stadium, and this game can be for one of two things, either it is a blowout where we see the Lion Offense get back to it’s high scoring ways heading into a big conference opener against Eastern New Mexico, or we see a team that overlooks William Jewell and plays lackluster. This is the kind of game that truly looks at a team’s character and fortitude. The Lions are ranked # 3 in the country, they have not been ranked this high in 29 years. The coming weeks will determine if that ranking is justified or not. Here are some things I am pondering.

  1. Will the Luis Perez led offense rebound and put major points and yards?
  2. Is the defense every bit as good as they played?
  3. Will we see the same total team effort we saw last Friday?
  4. Will the new skill position players step up and make routine plays to get over the hill?
  5. Who will distance themselves from the pack as the new starting running back?
