Game Preview: Rams look to avoid trap game versus TCU

If that headline looks familiar it is because I copied and pasted rebelfan1's title from his post earlier today.  The Rams sit in the same boat as the Rebels.  They play a bottom feeder with a season make or break game on the horizon Saturday when the Rebels and Rams face off at Moby Arena. 

The trick to the Rams game is the fact they are on the road.  The Rams have issues with quick point guards but with Ronnie Moss suspended it will make life a little easier. 

TCU is on an 8 game slide that started with a 79-69 loss in Fort Collins.  In those losses only two games have been single digit losses, they did take Air Force to overtime in a one point loss.

The Rams are on a cute two game streak after a buzzer beater loss to SDSU at home.  To prep for the Rebels the Rams have the capability to sit Wes Eikmeier who has been nursing a foot injury for a few weeks.  Eikmeier will be a big part of the Rams getting a NCAA bid, but playing him too soon could hurt the team more.

If the Rams are focused they should win down in Fort Worth.  Tim Miles can prove his coaching worth by getting the team focused on tonight's game.
