Our panicked play calling is a problem. I don't understand why we're running dive plays and bombs only... Go back to what was successful 

Comment 21 Nov 2014

I definitely think it's cheap, but if it were about winning bowl games then this part doesn't make sense:

Based on what I was told Monday, the SEC would want to put one of its last teams to become bowl eligible against Texas.

Comment 21 Nov 2014

I don't wanna sound pessimistic, but if Noah is the source telling other people he's coming back, I don't see how he would know... Either way it's exciting that he has a hearing soon. Hoping for the best

Comment 18 Nov 2014

I think fickell has done a fantastic job as of late, but the idea that we need fickell because he's a great recruiter probably is moot when you consider the defensive players muschamp has pulled in and having another link into florida and Texas.

Comment 17 Nov 2014

I think part of it is the fact that the ap and cp are both conservative in their approach (i.e. won't drop TCU for winning close against Kansas), whereas espn and other polls take it as a "who are the hottest teams" kind of poll.

Comment 16 Nov 2014

What if fickell becomes hc at a smaller school, and we suddenly have a vacancy? Why wouldn't we take one of the best defensive-minded coaches outside msu? Muschamp and ash would be perfect for our defense. Let's not let our sec hatred get in the way of an opportunity were it to happen (albeit extremely unlikely).

Comment 16 Nov 2014

lol, that's funny because our offense destroyed them. had it not been for Jalin's fumbles, we would've put up at least 41... in 15 degree weather. So if TCU is way better, how did they only score 30 at home in warm weather? 

Comment 16 Nov 2014

To be honest, the one that went into the endzone probably wasn't his fault- helmet hit right on the ball and cold weather makes it more slippery. If anything, I'm a little confused as to what evan was doing sort of staring at the ball before jumping on it... Either way, he's a freshman in the coldest weather in 50 yrs. It's unfortunate because we would've probably won something like 48 or so to 17, but we still won and we looked a lot better than most teams did this weekend.

Comment 16 Nov 2014

apparently, they're being taught to keep there eyes on the wr and punch through the ball rather than turn around and (potentially) lose position. His PI call probably wouldn't have been if Maxx hadn't fallen down (still questionable IMO). 

Comment 15 Nov 2014

During gameday today, they were talking about all of the rivalry trophies in the B1G and off-camera someone said, "gotta play for something". Fuck them

Comment 14 Nov 2014

I agree with minny. I think we desperately need Nebraska to make the conf champ game, and I think Indiana seriously doesn't really help us at all. Nobody's gonna say, "well, look how well ohio state did against a good Indiana team." If mizzou makes the sec champ game and somehow wins then maybe. Either way Mizzou's loss to them is more like our loss to vt

Comment 12 Nov 2014

Until the sec loses in big ooc games/bowl games/recruiting games, they're going to get teams ranked in the top 25 (and therefore wins against top 25) so the bad ooc won't matter.

Comment 11 Nov 2014

The Alabama lsu game did NOT look good, and luckily some are acknowledging that, but many are blinded by "SEC".

Comment 11 Nov 2014

Watched some douchey video on "college insiders" where one guy kept saying "yeah they look really good because they play bad big ten teams. Who cares?" And gave absolutely no credit to msu. This is just how it goes right now: any team we beat, the response is "oh, they weren't that good". All we can do is win and hope the B1G wins in bowls, because until then we'll continue to be disrespected.

Comment 10 Nov 2014

It's definitely a move in the right direction, but I'm pretty sure it's more of reference of hot teams.
