I'd be down for a grey jersey. And I'm all for alternate jerseys....but errr not this one
I think I'm confident that, given time to throw, JT can dissect a defense...however, I want to see it happen against a real team. Sure it was Kent State, but you have to feel better after seeing that performance by the whole team!
Not that it matters that much I guess but do we fall out of the AP poll entirely by not playing next week?
THANK YOU. WINNER WINNER WINNER.
Hackenburg might be a good QB but the Big Ten Network talks about this guy like he's fricken John Elway.
You know what they say, bad things come in 3's with a random good event in the middle.
Loss to Va Tech - Chad Lindsay's Career is done - YAY MICKEY MITCHELL IS BACK - oh Spence is done.
It sucks if it's not true because people are spreading fake rumors about a college kid. It sucks if it's true because Spence is a hell of a player.
Legend of Zelda for Nintendo is a really difficult game. I don't know how anyone beat it before the internet. I have a high level of respect for those that did...I had to look at maps online to beat it.
a 6'8" quarterback...
Calling dibs now on the Mickey Mouse "I Get Buckets" Club. T-shirts will go on sale in a couple weeks.
Urban calls it like it is. The loss was on the players and the coaches. If the coaches weren't prepared then that sucks but at least Urban has not pushed all the blame onto the players coughBradyHokecough.
We could be the 3rd best TEAM in the B1G right now...but I refuse to believe any other team has more talent.
not the best string of days ever...damn we couldn't get either Kennard Bragg or Ahmad. Yeah, Thad does recruit well but it sucks watching all this in-state talent go elsewhere.
I agree, I had put this game so far out of my mind that I forgot about the field goals. Wow that's kind of sad.
I'm not ready to hit the panic button just yet. If Devin Smith could have broken off that tackle, if Corey Smith didn't have holes for hands, and if we have better 3rd down defense then we probably at least take the game to overtime.
Woulda, shoulda, coulda...
I think we have the ability to win, but as of this moment in time my brain says no.
The real question is, is the performance more on the players or on the coaches? Everyone is blaming Hermans game plan but it's hard to call anything when your QB can't even go 3 seconds without getting hit. Hell I was blaming Herman on Saturday night too but from the day after, sober perspective I don't think it mattered what we called. The O-line has to get better and we need to get a lot better on 3rd down...the 3rd down defense for me was even more frustrating than the offensive line woes.
It's a valid question.
I stayed off 11W this entire weekend because I knew I would say something irrational in my non-sober state Saturday evening. I think that we just underestimated how much our losses to the draft/injuries/graduation would affect us. It's a work in progress, but it's a lot of young guys who are going to get a ton of experience and hopefully next year we can talk playoff (and maybe a snowball's chance in hell we discuss it this year) but let's just keep improving each week and win the Big Ten!
I think I'm going to go poison the trees in Johnny's front yard. Roll Damn Updyke
Also, what's exciting is that nobody seems to know what to expect Saturday night. I expect to score at least 1 more point than Va Tech but I also have no idea whether I will be dancing around the living room or throwing my phone at the wall.
Jalin Marshall 85, most coming on a home run play.
I'm a fan of alternate jerseys, but only because we have Nike not Adidas. Still waiting for a grey version of the chrome uniforms though
Hokus Pocus: Joe Thomas Football dazzles Va Tech with his magical QB play
(that's right. JOE THOMAS FOOTBALL > JOHNNY FOOTBALL)
I agree with you. I'm not the biggest fan of the wildcat either...if we saw it once or twice a game that would be fine, but I want JT getting the ball and I have no doubts he's going to have another solid game for us this Saturday evening.
Hey, it looks like you're right...just based of NOAA's website. Rain most likely before 9AM then mostly cloudy the rest of the day. Hopefully that stays true
But seriously, this sucks. Best luck in the recovery effort. Considering I could barely walk after I jammed my big toe on Easter, I can't even imagine how hard it is for any of these athletes to recover from ACTUAL injuries.
Favored by 14 points with Braxton, Win by 17 without Braxton, drop in the polls.
Good thing these things don't matter that much this early.
