"The fans are being heard" is crap. They don't and should not listen to us because coaches would be fired every other week and we would have a different QB starting every week. Complete disarray.
Don't blame me but Gene has already said there will be no million dollar assistance at Ohio State.
He is right. We have offensive problems and it would not be pretty for us to play a hot team.
No you are not the only one to notice. About the third game of the season I brought it up on a thread. They are taught to stop momentum of a player running at them over the middle so they don't run free. I watched a couple of games where the officials were looking right at it and Speilman saying it was a good no call. Other staffs were screaming at the refs for that and just plain grabbing onto a receiver. Get ready to be mad as hell because they will get away with it all game.
That was hard to watch 2 days later. uuuuggg
Play nice. Both sides have a point.
Would be nice once after a loss (and there will be others) we aren't having petitions and threats to some ones job. Getting a win this weekend would help heal but one must consider that other team up north isn't our rival now. I have friend in the south that persist that MSU vrs OSU is a bigger deal for the nation every year.
Agreed. It's not about how accurate he was but being a team mate of guys who struggled with him. I would like to see more of Samuel who we were promised to see more of all year.
I recall CJ focusing in on one player and he would just hold it until he realized it wasn't going to happen and lose yardage tucking it in. It seems funny to me that both QBs would do progressions last year and not this year. It doesn't seem to be a issue with the offensive staff to do that. They seem to want to dictate exactly who runs and who to throw to.
There were some things that stood out to me that happened at critical points that have been pointed out already. Another when Vannet caught a third and long pass and stepped out of bounds and immediately was pointing out to an official that he stepped out a little further up field until he saw the first down marker 5 yards further up then stopped trying for the extra yard immediately. Sure looked like he lost track of the marker and ran his out cut short of the first down. That said, I have no idea what strategy was used to call plays. It sure appeared as though it was just flipping a dime at times.
A few players on the o-line need replaced until they learn to pass block.
I should have been clear about rooting for Iowa as the BIG rep since it won't be us. Still allinosu for the next two.
Thus far the MSU d-line is dominating our 0-line more than the other way around.
weather keeping game off here. how long to kickoff
Zeke would rather have the win. Says a lot for this young man. Up hill battle because the next two defenses will go all out to stop the run while Henry's next two defenses are running scared. I'm disappointed we are not getting him more relief to keep him fresh.
What does that mean?
Well if we lose either of the next two we won't play 5. Every team has flaws and Alabama is no exception. When they face teams that can run or throw they are not so good. Ole Miss and Tenn but the media feels they are unstoppable now just like last year. Our offense is predictable right now which makes defenses look better than they are. Throwing on first down first down fixes that.
Now that song is ringing in my head. "Oh no, there goes Tokyo again, GODZILLA". "Oh don't know. it's Tokyo again. GODZILLA".
If we HAVE to lose please be it this weekend and not next because of Mark. Next Iowa because it would mean we took out the Michigan's.
I've been saying the PSU wins since they made this their white out game. 24-17 PSU
21-17. the run on first down keeps MSU close.
The next and hopefully three teams have good front seven who are going to limit Zekes carries. It will be hard but if he does it he deserves it.
There of them stood out like a sore thumb. Plus it won't let me edit those answers out or I would.
