I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess practice today was unpleasant. You still don't need to torch people in the media.
We scored 38 on Indiana and 48 on Tulsa. If we were that "impotent" every week we'd have a top-20 offense in the country. Instead we'll just have to settle for being ...fifth overall.
I just have such a hard time trying to understand what our fans expect to happen. Sometimes the other defense is really good and will hold the opponents' offense in check. Are we supposed to rack up 500 yards and 50 points on every team we play?
Italics are the crutch of the weak.
Because when you think of the best coaches in CFB, you think of Nick Saban, Ramiy63, and Urban Meyer - in that order. Actually kind of embarrassing that Urban didn't check 11W first on what he should do before going out there and announcing he wasns't making changes. The arrogance of that guy.
Who the hell does Meyer think he is??!? I don't care if he has three rings and gets paid millions of dollars to actually "know" things. I trust the internet commentary wholeheartedly, and they've told me that we need to fire half the coaching staff, burn the playbook and bench half of the starting offense. THEN, and only then, will we see some positive changes.
Or he isn't going to trash his own players or coaches in public. He's not an idiot.
But he sucks without Mariota. Why do our fans keep clamoring for mediocre HCs to join the staff? Are Helfrich and Hazell gonna share desks?

Ok, I'm as big an OSU fan as anybody, but screw Malik Hooker. I'm all in on this badass right here. I know nothing about him but this is now my favorite CFB player.
UPDATE: Found him. #SteelhammerForHeisman
That's almost impossible to pull off though. With 7 teams in a division, you have an odd number of teams playing in each division on any week. You can't line up bye weeks between future opponents - you need to sit at least one of them every week.
Eh, the defense only gave up 17 - and 3 of those were after the blocked punt put them in bad field position AND they had the questionable horsecollar. I'm not ever going to complain about a defense giving up basically 14 points on the road.
Well fortunately when bad things happen in Happy Valley we can just agree to never speak of them again. That's the precedent, anyway.
Yes, but if you're going to criticize the CB's technique we need to at least acknowledge that the ball literally hit Clark in the face, and he made no attempt to move either of his arms up to try to catch it. The interference did not prevent him from catching that ball. Would I have like a flag there? Of course. But am I outraged over it? No - it wasn't going to be a catch.
It seems unlikely that Penn State wins out. Unless they plan on blocking multiple kicks every game the rest of the way.
Actually last year when they lost to Ole Miss they dropped 10 spots, from #2 to #12. #facts
Yep. Our fans would be Brian Kelly style blue in the face with rage if Bama had lost and slipped so little. I'm gonna take it though, cuz I like it.
Eh, that's pretty fair. We're only behind one 1-loss team and are ahead of a few undefeateds.
Yes I think author needs to step back from the ledge a little. Take the rest of the weekend off or something.
He's probably reluctant because his passes bounce off his receivers faces instead of being caught. I can't really blame him.
If only he had a second arm he could have used to help reel it in. Maybe one day science will help make this dream a reality.
You mean like - and just spitballing here - Michael Thomas, Braxton Miller, Jalin Marshall or Devin Smith?
He has 24 TDs and 4 INTs through seven games. In 2014 he had 27 and 7. And this years schedule has been much tougher. That's not "downhill".
Now the formula has been written so everyone can copy it. If you want OSU to give up a halftime lead you just need to block a punt, block a FG and return it for a TD, and get our receivers to let the football hit them in the face. Easy!
But it's going to take some time to rebuild the credibility that Urban Meyer has established on the road.
For sure, now that's 19-1 he definitely has no idea what he's doing.
