My point is they ran the zone read like 50 times, try doing it quicker to catch defense off guard. I didn't say open the playbook, but rather if you're going to run the same damn play try it once or twice before the denfese gets all set.
The last two weeks felt very similar to most of last year, underperforming but winning.
Not gonna sit here and say I'm glad this loss happened, but I'm hoping this will light a fire under everyone's ass. Just like Va Tech two years ago and Michigan State last year.
We still got this.
1) Shocked they rushed that field goal given the situation of the game at that point and they had timeouts.
2) The amount of time taken in between plays on that last drive is absolutely inexcusable. Highly unlikely we even make it down the field at the rate we were going.
With that being said, this loss has a good chance of turning this team around. Similar to Michigan State last year but now we have 5 more games to gain momentum. I still believe.
In closing, where the hell is the hurry up offense?!
Anyone have a clue what someone like him could fetch from the Browns? I see SkinnyTrees above says about $5M/year - Is that reasonable to assume?
I sure hope so.
Holy €#%& !!
I wonder what Urban is listening to in the header photo...
Well played sir.
Looking forward to this for sure!!
Here we are again playing Away, @ night, against a team coming off a bye week. With the extra time to prepare do you see Penn State kind of copy Wisconsin in the sense of rolling out 3-4 different offensive concepts/formations that they haven't shown all year?
Oh I know I was just messing (kind of). ESPN doesn't bother me at all.
2. The author thinks there's no reason to cheer for college teams because the pros exist. For me, that's an automatic disqualification of his opinion.
I enjoy all of Phil Steele's podcasts, but it's obviously more geared toward the national picture...
and the ESPN Big Ten blog
I can't argue that gamedays in CBUS are insane and there are most certainly some crazies, but to basically say it's worse off than the south??? Come on, man...
This is one of, if not THE best.
Taking one for the team...
This has been the first year in quite some time where I'm actually excited when the defense takes the field. I love watching them stuff that run and get to the ball so damn quickly. Plus, they can put up some points which is always exciting and a huge momentum shifter. Silver Bullets are here to stay baby!
Yes to all of this.
I would say if they win out and win the Pac-12 Championship they are in no doubt. If they win the conference with a loss then I would presume it just depends on the other conferences' champions.
Or the fans.....
I don't mind these kind of games at all. All championship teams have closer games than one would think throughout the season. 2002 had like 4 of them.
Totally agree - taking practically the same exact team from 6-7 to 12-0 and not getting the award should be a sign that it just isn't meant to be. That's ok though I'm sure Urban would rather be a 4-time National Champion over a B1G COY...
