Nevada Smokes Colorado State, 51-6

The losing streak continues as the Rams were thoroughly beaten by Nevada 51-6.  The Wolfpack piled up 631 yards of offense and were surprisingly balanced.  The Ram defense was unable to stop Colin Kaepernick or any portion of the running game, as the Wolfpack averaged 8.2 yards per carry.

The Ram offense stalled time and time again and was a lousy 4-14 on third downs and 0-4 on fourth down attempts.  The offense is still being somewhat conservative with Pete Thomas.  He threw 23-36 but only came away with 194 passing yards, but he was pressured all night and was unable to have any time to look downfield.

Having no rushing attack did not help the Rams at all since they 78 yards, but really 89 if you take away the sack yardage.  Even so, the running game was supposed to be a strength and so far it has been nothing but a disaster in the first two games.

The only bright spot is that in this blowout the Rams only turned the ball over once with a Pete Thomas interception.  The Rams need to do something to spark the offense and put together a decent game plan so that they are not blown out every single week. They have their chance when they travel to play Miami (OH) next Saturday, so hopefully they can get some confidence and who know maybe even pull of a win.
