  • SPORTS MOMENT: Witnessing Eddie George in 1995 rushing all over a Simeon Rice-led Illinois defense to the tune of 314 yards, 3 TDs, and even catching one... Orlando Pace didn't look too shabby either... it was a wet cold evening, and all the ponchos were out, but will never forget his milestone. He was a man among boys.

Tim Beck runs the red zone offense (we are very good in the red zone if you look at the stats), Warriner runs the playcalling everywhere else... I love him as and OL, but man o man, we need a come-to-youknowhat meeting on playcalling and preparing JT (which falls on Tim Beck).

Other than that, yes, I think Tim has been a catalyst for us to reach into Texas where Herman left off, but it goes to show that there is a need for special coaches to work at a special program like ours. They have to be able to do it all... at least playcalling and development during a season

Whatever they did during this week of prep, I hope continues so that we keep the remaining teams guessing how they are going to scheme us. It was good to see them get rolling again.

Will we see some 2013 like offense scheming where we threw more outside wr screens/tunnel screens to give our playmakers a chance to chip 5+ yds at a time or will we see the same conservative play calling, since we all know that cover-3 is the new bear front 46...

If Urban is in this light-hearted but serious mood, you know he is right where he wants this team to be in terms of trajectory. Keep Calm and let him do his thing... He sees his youngsters growing up during games and on film. Positivity is underrated and glad that he is showing this so that it permeates through the team. Trickle down may not work in govt but it sure works when everyone is looking to the leader

I'm with you AZ. Urban has said many times before that (paraphrasing) you win 10 or so games on talent, 2-3 on leadership, and 1-2 on luck. Well, we used up luck against Wisconsin imho, won 1 so far with JTs heroics/leadership against NW, and since we have lost one, you have to ask yourself if our talent was overrated and what is in store for the remaining games. Of course talent in coaching is in question right now, but I am not buying that we are ineffective just because of bad coaching or play calling... It is never a simple single answer when things go awry. People just want to vent against a single thing to make their lazy anger easier. I say that anyone who wants to be mad should replay the 90s games... And just appreciate that we get to have positive memories. Not like the dumpster fire decade+ that ttun has had to experience

It's not all coaching, although you have to ask yourself why the talent isnt developing the way we thought it was. If blame or questioning is to be thrown around, you have to ask what is going on with these talented players, too - like is the lengthy and physical college schedule catching up to them? Are there unreported injuries by the players? Are some just good practice players but not game time players?

Fans jumping all over Prince's bad outing at OSU have made their point. It was a bad day. Get over it, since you can't change the results now. Eddie George was also demonized for his fumbling before he had his study Heisman year. Yes, we spoiled fans may not be able to wait a year, but Isiah will be fine in his career before it is all said and done. We need to chill and enjoy these guys before they start playing on Sundays

These losses are going to weed out those who aren't buying into the system from those who will help lay the foundation for years to come. At some point we will see these guys put their foot down and show enough is enough, even if it is in their last game of the season

Chef Kwon!

I think the OP is thinking that Chef should have highlights like Chris Borland or Shazier, but though Chef may not always stick his nose into the fray a lot more aggressively like Chris or Shazier, it may also be that he doesn't have to simply because he is playing within the scheme and the plays may be dead before he even has to get involved. Our def is on fire, and until I see an offensive game plan to pick on the MLB, which I haven't seen yet, we can wait and see how it plays out.

And to add on, who is there DC and where does he hail from? Perhaps a bit of a question to Kyle Jones, but is their defensive scheme 'basic' or who are the biggest threats against our offense in terms of matchup.
