It was the first game of the season - if you expect them to execute to perfection the first game of the year, Jack - lighten up. First fielding against a solid league opponent with zero warm up games. It was elite.
IMHO he didn't hold onto the ball too long yesterday at all, albeit maybe one play. He looked damn good yesterday.
The entire team looked much better as the game progressed. We didn't get to play the traditional three tune up games prior to conference play this year. Clearly those games make a huge difference. this team showed sparks of greatness yesterday - if we can get past penn state I think we make it to the CFP. TTUN also might be good this year, let's hope they implode like usual at the end of the year.
Penn State looked worse than Nebraska up till when i stopped watching maybe they are rusty too but they look much more rusty than we do.
Miller looks fast, and did very well with the number ones - he must have worked very hard to deserve that honor during a live game situation and clearly took advantage of it. I find it ridiculous that coach day had to apologize for it.
Gunner must really be a bad quarterback. This is the second team in a row to bench him.
In a normal year we have three games to get in sync; often two of those games are against greatly inferior competition and where we work on timing issues; coverage issues etc. This year we got cheated of that; partially because of science or a lack of it and partially because of people that are so afraid of law suits and maybe the players lives or unionization. So now we see a team take the field and progressively get in sync as the game went on. They are a very very good team and are about to be elite. I hope they make it the entirety of the season to make the CFP.
I now see why the B1G gave him the toughest schedule. I will be glad to see him now get exposed; we went first and set the path on how to beat them; which we did soundly from the end of the 2nd quarter onward. Frost should be fined by the NCAA for how dirty they played and for the people saying they didn't and it was legal: these kids play a tough game yes, but they do not deserve to be permanently harmed for it intentionally even if it is a "legal" hit - it's dirty uneventful football which encourages poor sportsmanship.
All the problems are fixable - however this is the second year that the style of defense we play exposes us to the QB run. It's a bit scary - however, towards the end of the game it looks like they might have gotten it fixed. Day is right to apologize because he is a good man and humble competitor, I however am a vengeful jerk and I am glad we scored it.
We made an adjustment - and it looks like as the players got the speed of the game - they got a lot better. I think that's because of them not starting for now almost 7 weeks in. I watched a lot of ACC, SEC - and the only teams that are consistantly good are Alabama and Ohio State. Clemson got a lot of help last year - this year our passing game and receiving corp look really fresh and really capable. It's going to be fun to watch as this team jells into national championship ready.
The dude from Cleveland.com is an asshat. I watched it live - what a dick.
After now watching 5 minutes into the second quarter - Penn State is in trouble next week. White out cannot commence, Ohio State has much better running backs than Indiana; and that's not saying a lot right now. I wonder why Chambers isn't RB1.
1st quarter in Penn State not looking too hot, but we didn't either so... it's hard to judge any team weak one; starting iin high levels of competition no less.
Mike Pereira sucks. No energy and his wanting players to be even more egregious with targeting makes him highly suspect.
I do wonder what if anything a lack of an audience has had on these games. Maybe its for the better or worse.
I can see them losing as well though. It's a tough bet to make - depending on TTUN for anything is difficult.
he was pissed off that we scored with 14 seconds left - I'm not that's how one builds a championship team. Frost teaches legal but really shitty targeting and it is very obvious. He's also a prick and we can see why the B1G decided to give his team the proper ass kicking that he deserves. I hope they go 0-8.
OMG I would make a plea that Joel Klatt stfu.
20/22 or 21/22 279 i think. no turn overs.
Im interested to see what Rutgers really is.
Nice forced turn-over defense. Looking better - this is a weird situation to playing against both quarterbacks. it takes a minute i think to figure it out but they look to hopefully be exposed now.
The good thing playing a dirty team makes our team tough, they know what they have to do to earn it. Second thought; we look like we have room for improvement - and that's amazing because our onfield product has been very good thus far. Only concern is the QB run its become a glaring concern.
AGAIN BOOOOO!!!!!! TERRIBLE TARGETING JUST TRASH!!!!!!
