Hodge, I wouldn't say they out-gutted us.  We were clearly the better team as we breezed (mostly) through the same conference schedule that they ultimately finished with only three wins.

What I would say is they WANTED this game as much as we did.  They sucked last year.  Bad.  They suck this year.  Just as bad.

Clearly we were better man for man.  I know it's cliche, but seasons, records, stats, talent... they don't add up to anything during these games.  The team that WANTS this game more will win.

We tried that once, it didn't go so well...

We also tried a halfback pass with Jalin once...

just because something doesn't go well, doesn't mean you never try it again.

As an old fart who remembers the Cooper years like they were yesterday, I can tell you that Spiels is 100% correct.

This scUM team will play like they're the number one team in the nation.  This game has nothing to do with hoke.  Has everything to do with a great rivalry... payback... and pride.  

I just finished watching the 2006 and 2002 games.  I am currently watching the 2013 game.

The one thing I noticed is, in all of these games, we tended to turn the ball over a lot.  

We have to play with intensity.  We have to play like it's the last game of the season.

Anyone who is overconfident this week is young and foolish.  Just my opinion.

The original poster wanted the committee to consider that IU is better than an entire SEC division based on one game.

My point was that we DON'T want the committee to consider that.  At all.  That reasoning might be entertaining at first glance, but it would also mean that Va Tech is better than anyone in the B1G East.

Don't know why this needs explained, but whatevers.

we don't need to throw a bunch of stones with our ugly loss to Va Tech, I agree with you there.

That was totally my point.  Glass houses etc...

It worries me that it might be cHoke's last game.  This is scUM's only chance... their last chance... to salvage some respect for their horrible record over the last three years.  

Wouldn't surprise me a bit if those unoriginal asswipes came out wearing 'brady' sweatbands.

Thank you for reminding me how much I hate scUM.  This will fuel me the rest of the week.
