And Indiana and NIU played us within a touchdown...
I love how we lose one game and everyone starts talking about how horrible of a bowl game we'll be playing in. If we beat Michigan we will almost certainly be playing another top-10 team on new year's day.
You do know that if we beat Michigan we will be in a major bowl game against another top 10 team, right?
+1. Especially when you're calling the most conservative game plan we've seen in the Meyer-era. If we're going to play the run-Dave gameplan, at least run Dave.
Yeah, I texted my father, "the only way we get into the redzone is if we make it to OT." There was no way we were driving more than 30 yards on that team yesterday. Sadly, we're just not very good on offense. Our defense just looked ok, but only 8 power five defenses gave up fewer points yesterday.
We've been playing scared all year. The only exceptions being JT in the red zone against PSU and the Rutgers game. Hopefully this lose is the end of that and we come out hungry and aggressive from here on out.
Agreed. I'm not so sure that it's about getting a chance to show that we're a great team as it is about realizing that we simply aren't one of the four best teams this year. This is a good team and it's been a fun run, but this simply is not the year. We can't pass the ball. Time to go beat Michigan and get to a good bowl game.
I watched Zeke's actual interview and don't really have a problem with what he said. Maybe better left in the locker room, but it's not like he was angry and raging or anything. A lot of those comments read much worse than they sound: http://espn.go.com/espn/now?nowId=1-14191932
Don't we already do this every bowl season? There are at least 3 big10/sec bowl games every year.
Hard not to trend down after posting 3 shutouts in a row.
"When O-linemen are trying to tackle him, he can really get something done.” Zing.
Doesn't the big10 also try to ensure that the top teams play in November?
Ha! That'll do it.
Maybe he means full. Seriously though, I've been here since 2011 and aside from the current remodels (started last year), wasn't aware there was anything recent either. The Buffs are close to breaking out though (into a bowl team).
I think they're being punished for losing their top QB and it's assumed they're not as good as they were with him at the helm, despite the better wins/losses.
Unfortunately the unfixed version still loaded for me...
I didn't think anyone knew this scene anymore. So hilarious.
I like the title of the video: "Amazing NFL marching band at Wimbley"
And much of the argument seems to assume Barrett is just a runner, which we know isn't true from his throwing stats last year. I personally remember watching an amazingly accurate QB who could hit every throw asked of him.
They didn't pull his scholarship... doesn't really seem like an evil move to me.
I'm not sure what to think of the Bama v. A&M game. The score looks bad, but if you take away three pick 6s by Bama, that's a completely different beast.
Cardale may have a better arm, but JT did just fine on the deep balls last year.
It seems that Cardale can't run the hurry-up O. When JT used jet tempo on that redzone TD it felt like the first time I'd seen it all year. Just another reason why JT should be the full time QB as far as I'm concerned. Our ability to combine speed and power has been such a critical part of the Meyer-run offense. Seems to me that they've been running an offensive experiment for 6 games and now JT is going to take us back to the old formula.
+1. Amazing play by CJ all night. On that one punt the coaches told him to go in and drop it inside the 5 and he puts it on the 3. What a pleasure to watch.
I wish they'd gone with the white numbers instead of red. A bunch of people were wearing those in the stands and they looked sharp. The red lettering just looked weird.
