Yahoo! Sports Inside Slant - ULM Warhawks
But it's no secret the Warkhawks are going to have to get more out of their running game as the season progresses
"We've got to lean on our front a little bit more," said offensive coordinator Steve Farmer, who also carries the title of assistant head coach. "We got to get a little more production out of our o-line and our tight ends to open up some running lanes for our running backs.
"That's the biggest thing we talked about yesterday when we talked to the kids. The theme of the week is to play more physical. You've got to do that in order to be a successful football team."
ULM is averaging a mediocre 120 rushing yards a game after two outings, but the main problem is that the leading rusher is quarterback Kolton Browning.

"We got away from the run pretty quick," Farmer said. "But there was not a lot of success on the runs we attempted. And then the score got lopsided in a hurry."

Scouting The Offense:
Scouting The Defense: The Warhawks played the Razorbacks tough for three quarters before fading, but they were stunned early by the Red Wolves the following week. They are giving up 320 yards a game passing, most among Sun Belt teams, and are next to last in the league in total defense, giving up 486.5 yards a game. LB Jason Edwards leads the league in tackles with his average of 12 a game.

STRATEGY AND PERSONNEL
This Week's Game: Southeastern Louisiana at
Keys To The Game: Get the running game going. The Warhawks have rushed for 240 yards in two games and face a defense that is holding opponents to 91 a game on the ground. The offense needs to come through in the red zone, where it has only two scores (both touchdowns) in four trips inside the opponent's 20-yard line.
Players To Watch:
QB Kolton Browning-After struggling
RB Frank Goodin-Goodin entered the season looking like a sure bet to leave with the school's all-time rushing record. But he has gotten off to a slow start with just 58 yards rushing through the first two games. He needs to have a big game to get back on track.
DE Ken Dorsey-After a quiet three years, the junior is showing up in many different categories through the first two games. Among his nine tackles are 2.5 for losses, and he has forced and recovered a fumble and gotten credit for a quarterback hurry in addition to his 1.5 sacks.
• CB Nate Brown (leg) sat
out the game against
• LT Justin Roberts should also return this week. Roberts had started 23 straight games before the injury.
