Love to see Washington on the list!

No- Grant is no surprise.  Guy is a Gdamn beast, and everyone must recognize his authority!

No LT- Decker on this list?

Could the Big Ten couching carousel get any more embarrassing?!

Wisconsin can't keep coaches...  Michigan... is well.. Michigan...   Nebraska fires a perennial 9-3 coach...... and hires a perennial 6-6 coach...    Iowa... pays its coach 5 million a year... for 7-5...    PSU is on its third coach in four years....  Ill fires a 8-4 coach.... for a 3-8 coach....

Then there is Purdue & IU.....

And we wonder why the media & fans make fun of the Big Ten?

Something just doesn't click with Amir...  He seems socially akward, and his reactions during gameplay just don't seem t match up?  My son has Asburger's so I'm not picking, but this kid just seems different than most.

Regardless, he's a buckeye... so I love the kid, and I hope this is his best year yet!!

It is tough to say it in a nice way, but I expect SO much more from Tyvis Powell.  Now, that doesn't mean I don't like him, don't appreciate him, or think in no way, shape, or form, that I played anywhere near his level..  but at 6'3 210 lbs... I'd wish his run support was stronger & had more impact....   Still love the kid & all the rest of em!

Go Bucks!

Scott & Thompson's play was so bad... highly disappointed. Not to mention Amir's comical inability to block out, rebound, and defend....  However, even with THAT said, he was still MUCH BETTER than Scott's horrific play & Thompson's usual blazy blazy indiscriminate play....

Our Sr's can't continue to be an anchor....   WHY is a true frosh the visible leader of this team?

Man, we will need Diop, Tate, & Lee to provide some serious minutes...

Go Bucks.

I'm not down with blanket criticism & blank negativity... 

HOWEVER- I think I can summarize much of the criticism in two statements.

Play more than 1 good team in the preseason.  Matta's 20+ wins is the biggest joke ever propagated.  15 cupcakes & 5 conference wins vs terrible teams = 20 wins every year.  Big ***** deal.

Can he teach REBOUNDING?    No, apparently that is "too cool" for young athletes today?  I have no other explanation for it, because after ten years..... it's very evident he refuses to emphasize this like the majority of "elite" coaches.... 

Otherwise.... the team at least showed some grit & determination.

Stupid move on their part.  Really?  A possible 10-3 coach.. Goodluck with that like ILL, MI, and likely NEB will be left with sideshow circus coaching....   Good luck with that.

WHY play it safe at this point?!  Herman/Meyer are playing with house $$$.  There is nothing to lose... when everyone expects us to fail.  Play him, (obviously), run THE SAME DAMN passing attack...  and let the chips fall where they may.  YES, lean on our Oline, EZE, and hopefully a D that tackles....

But other than spoon feeding him easy throws in the flat, and jet sweeps basically,  LET IT ROOOOOLL beeeeauches!

YES.  How many times can we have a three touchdown lead turn into a 30+ pt nail baiter because Fickell......    A.  wears a skirt   B. can't disguise a blitz if his life depended on it....   and     C. HAS TO BE SHOWN & TOLD WHAT AN AGGRESSIVE DEFENSE looks like.

Fickell is as close to milk toast as one can get.   Weak link.  Period.   TIme to put him out to pasture & get him a starting HC job..... somewhere the **** else.

Or remove him from his DC title & position.

Comment 30 Nov 2014

In no way, shape, or form...   I was/am a staunch supporter of Cardale, but have you watched the last 10 games?!  His pick of starting QB was solid, decisive, and apparently the right decision...

I just hope Jones throws the ball about a million times in live action this week!

Three TO's is not enough to make me lose my mind...  The game is 60 minutes...not 30.
