I found a partial article, that's the best I could do.

On a personal note. I remember being a great backyard athlete and always having people tell me how great I was at sports in general, but the one thing was...whenever I put on a helmet it just felt so claustrophobic as if my vision was narrowed down to a tunnel. I was terrible once that helmet went on. Then again in my day we re-used helmets and none of those damn things fit right.

I've stopped watching long ago. Only a few teams have passion the rest are just fillers. They keep adding rules or changing things that make it even more boring, like the kickoffs. To me it's about as exciting as watching someone cash a million dollar check at the ATM. Which is exciting if you're the one cashing the check but not so much if you're just the next guy in line.

It's been awhile but I remember watching a video of the Oregon Ducks teaching all of their players vision. It was pretty remarkable. I'll try to find it unless someone beats me to it.

Man they really need to bring back the ability to up vote or down vote threads. This one would be buried with a thousand down votes.

Some fans are really into studying what went right, what went wrong and trying to make sense of it all.

Film study. Once the emotion of the game is removed and you can pay attention to what's going on, then you can figure out if you are as bad as you thought or if it was a few mistakes that led to a downfall. Might be a run on sentence, I'm on my phone so forgive me.

This is what all football minded fans are asking. Why didn't we call any plays that would alleviate the pressure the VT defense was giving us? A few screens, some slants, TE seem route and these things to get the ball out faster would have put their defense on their heels. Our O-line doesn't have to be great to do these plays, just serviceable. Instead we got what we got and that resulted in a loss.

I think we should all re-watch the game and pay attention to the small details which led to the loss. VT converting on 3rd and forever, our guys giving field position based on penalties or kickoff out of bounds, a fumble that was recovered but was not rewarded to our guys, offensive play calling that seemed like a small child was in charge. When you put all these things together of course we lose, but if you remove just a few of them, through good coaching this doesn't happen. I chalk this game up to a perfect storm of events that went against us.

To answer the op though, we are NOT the dumpster fire that is up north. Nowhere near it. Yes we lost by 2 touchdowns on the scoreboard but we know we basically lost by 1 touchdown. It was the same that we did to Northwestern. I never considered that a 10 point win but a 3 point win even though we recovered the fumble in the end zone.

The sky is not falling, the coaches just have more work to do than we expected. Also, Herman needs to turn in his Mensa card because he isn't that smart. His play calling was as bland as Bollman and Borges. I feel this is where we are lacking the most, offensive play calling that counters what a defense is doing to us.

I would put $100 on the fact that no B1G team is getting invited this year. There are "power 5 conferences" and this one just got eliminated in week 2.

So are we all mensa members now? We all knew every play coming. If we know it then guys who get paid to sure as shit know what is coming.
