I think the off season will be crucial. Last year wasn't a fluke with the lack of offense. It was the loss of Herman. With Ed W having to move , the OL sucks. I am hoping That they hire a hot young OC  who can relate to the QBs. There are some great ones coming up.  Perhaps a new OL coach. This team needs a spark.

I still believe in this year, but to win big, changes have to be made. There are a lot of hot recruits coming in. The staff needs to coach them to greatness.

I have seen every game. Bodine has been pushed deep into the backfield quite a bit. As Marvin always says, It doesn't matter how you got there, it matters what you do when you are there. I see what Bodine has done for 3 years. Throw out that fourth round thing. Our last good center was a free agent cast off.

lol  - Until Chris gets his players at least

Comment 10 Oct 2016

Rutgers had 3 real beat downs. By the time they played ttun they were totally shell shocked.  They quit. Chris has to regroup with his players and his attitude. Maybe the Washington game was the real RU. With young kids things can get out of control real quickly.

Blu Fan - The Knights gave up in the game as it was the 3rd straight big time beat down. TTUN got lucky to have played them last. Chris will have them going. He is already getting some local HS coaches thinking surround the state - Jersey v. the world. Wait & see how well that will do.

The Big was greedy and wanted New York. People Rutgers couldn't beat UC in the big east. I told the folks what were they going to do if they couldn't beat OSU light when they played OSU. Don't blame Rutgers as they were invited. I believe Gene Smith welcomed them in big time.

That doesn't change the fact that Harbaugh is still a jerk.

The general fans here don't know about the recruits. They didn't know Chris came from OSU for the most part either.They knew that going for 2 in a blowout was cheap. Never put words in a jersey person's mouth is a lesson one must learn.  This isn't TSUN. I never seen them so mad. Glad I was wearing the good guys stuff.

5 minutes don't make a game. No I wasn't at the game. I have tickets so I can be assured of seeing the Bucks when they come. It was a rather nice night overall. I was outside as I went out to dinner. Wasn't even misting.

The weather????/ I live in Jersey. It was warm and it wasn't misting. Regardless, there is UM hate in the state now.

Well I earned it as did my wife. Thankfully we have been blessed to be able to afford things and to visit also. The reason I never moved back to Ohio is because my kids settled here and all will or have married locals so visiting is easy. God has been very gracious to us.

Life is way too short. I buried my sister 2 weeks ago. My brother in law was happy that they retired early and traveled quite a lot. They enjoyed what time they had together.  My wife has always said you only live once and I agree with her. We made sure that we would not be a burden on anyone as we saved, invested wisely and have good pension plans. I don't know what tomorrow may bring, but I hope that our planning will be good. Until then, I really enjoy the viewing parties I have with my family and the games I get to see. The grandkids will have lots of stuff. That you can be sure of. I was young and now I am old. Enjoy the wife of your youth, your family and the bucks  and other things. Speaking of the bucks , I can hardly wait till 3:30 for the Hoosiers.  So the $256 is really nothing knowing that just about every week  my family comes together for a party and dinner as we watch a game. You can't put a price on that plus I get to see the bucks and the bengals play. I really enjoy it.

I am old and retired. Directtv $256 a month. I see every bucks and bengals game. I see Bucks basketball & UC basketball. The wife sees movies. To me it is worth it and not bragging. I worked hard all my life. I enjoy sports, but just certain teams. I live in jersey, but I get to see the teams I grew up with.  I have had my sunday ticket and the sports channels for years though (got to see the bucks & bengals). I go to a bengals game maybe once a year if in jersey. Bucks when playing Rutgers and my boys and myself go to the game but only at the shoe. I like watching it on tv better though so I am glad for directtv. We have a big party when the bengals play with all the kids every sunday so it is a family get together. Most of us get together for the bucks but my son-in-law is a Notre Dame fan. He watches with his uncles & brothers as he gets pissed some when the bucks win. I am having grandchildren so I am buying buckeye stuff for the baby. The son in law says nothing.

So why do it when it is done for you? Do you go to buffets all the time as well? I like sitting in the car in the elements or when I am wearing a suit etc. Plus I get to listen to cool Indian music from the workers' radio who pump my gas. Where else can I hear that while getting a fill-up.
