Houston's win combined with Toledo's likely loss has pretty much guaranteed a NY6 bid for Herman. Hopefully he sticks around to coach it. The Coogs could be tough next year with Ward back.

That's exactly right. After our rushing attack in the post season last year, he bought himself a year of good will. National championships are almost expected, but that doesn't mean we don't appreciate them.

That's about the only scenario I'll believe as well. I just hope our guys are more focused on the rivals than they are playoff hopes. A B1G title alone doesn't guarantee anything. We need to win convincingly 2 weeks in a row.

I don't really care too much about not utilizing players properly. I think that mindset is part of our offensive struggles. Playing to get certain guys (Braxton) involved kills our game plan. You could argue that getting guys touches based on scheme would work. You can't just say that you're going to Samuel because he needs touches. You need to go to him because you see an opportunity to exploit something.

I think the problem is just as much disinterested fans as it is sitting fans. I also like to stand, but I won't be the only one in my section standing. I have more of a problem with the fans who watch the game like they're sitting in a library. Or worse yet, the fans who leave early. I don't think it's coincidence that the club seating section always empties before the rest of the stadium. It's not purely demographics either. The student section empties earlier too. 2011 is a distant memory, and we've all become spoiled.

Urban made a couple comments in his presser about play-calling that were very much not like him. When asked a follow up question, he back-peddled a bit to direct the disdain on himself. That's very telling if you ask me. Even when the defense was in shambles in 2013, he held a unified front. I have to believe Tim Beck will be looking for a job sooner rather than later. I wouldn't be surprised to see him lose play calling responsibilities going forward. It seems Urban had quick realization tonight about the direction the offense has headed. He went for continuity by promoting Warriner, and that seems to have had a negative effect. The offensive line has suffered, and the offense as a whole has struggled. Beck seems like a grave mistake, especially in the play calling aspect.

Thad will leave on his own terms. Unless he gets sparked by the next couple season, I don't think he'll stick it out much longer. His health is preventing him from being who he wants to be. His seat won't be hot, but I don't expect him to be around much past this class' graduation.

I got well over 20,000 once, but didn't screen shot the exact number. I might have to play some tonight.

As much as I love Navy, I'm rooting for the fighting Tom Hermans to solve this problem.

Originally I thought it could take place over the course of a few weeks, but I just realized that won't work. It's awfully hard to schedule more than 1 open week. I guess you would need more neutral sites. Same idea though. 

Comment 18 Nov 2015

I have dream scenario of how this could work. Play it somewhat like the college basketball invitational tournaments. Play it at the sites of the respective conference championships. Half the games in Indy and the other half in Atlanta. 3 games in a day. 12:00, 4:30, and 9:00. Since its neutral field, you don't schedule the games in advance. Use the previous year standings to determine match ups. One year the top half plays in Indy, the next year Atlanta. Gives you a quality game, neutral site but fair to everyone, and ease of scheduling. 

Comment 16 Nov 2015

It is slightly peculiar that this comes out the same day Urban announced they won't be honoring any players on senior day that haven't been in the program 4 years. Could this mean that Darron Lee, Vonn Bell, and Bosa are sticking around? Mike Thomas has a redshirt year. Or maybe Urban just decided not to put the pressure on the underclassmen. 

Comment 16 Nov 2015

I saw an episode of Law & Order about that. Somebody call in Benson and Stabler. They have experience. 

Comment 16 Nov 2015

I think the pass protection as a whole has been poor this year. Farris struggled against Illinois, but it's a bigger problem than one guy. They hang their hat on run blocking. I wonder if the focus on pass blocking is lacking in practice. That said, I think the focus will shift this week.
