MEMBER SINCE   August 30, 2010

US Army career officer - Medical Service Corps. Been a long road since I enlisted back in the early 80's as a Private; had a nice government all expenses paid trip to Saudia Arabia in 90-91 and felt the need to return to the deserts of Iraq in 2004.

Overall can't complain, but the Army sure has changed in 30 years.

I believe like many here Day will excel.  But as with anything that revolves around winning (business, military, etc) it takes talented support to get to the highest levels.  He appears to have taken positive steps in improving our deficient defensive issues from last year, so if that comes to fruition, then the normal high expectations our fan base holds will be realized.

Sorry but Martin simply choked.  He looked unaware, disinterested and unagressive. Didn’t set up shots and had no time awareness.  4 in finals could have gotten us a team victory if PSU slipped up but 3 in finals (although great for McKenna, Jordan and Moore) won’t do it.  Bad time for Martin to wrestle his worst against inferior opponent.  Everything lined up for him seed wise and he didn’t perform to his ability. Here’s hoping Moore can upset Nickal, would love to see that.

Watching semis...PSU’s Jason Nolf did not win his 157 match. Refs blew 1st period take down call against him by reversing call. It was a take down for the OK St wrestler. Politics dictating outcomes.  Nolf admitted it was a take down in post match interview.  PSU needs no help from refs. Could be critical decision against us ultimately for team standings.  So frustrating.

I live in WA and Gaskin's is for real.  I'd even say better than JK in that he's even more quicker and can run thru tackles better.  His open field speed is far superior to JK.  UW also has excellent TE's that block and catch and are utilized much like Iowa does.  We'll have to play excellent, disciplined, assignment defensive football to win.  I do believe we'll score fairly easily though.  I predict a 42-28 type outcome for the good guys.

The solution for everyone not in the SEC (while the current committee selected 4 team playoff exists) is simple:

1) Move to 8 conference games making 4 OOC games available 

2) Schedule cupcakes OOC like the SEC to ensure those 4 wins

3) Win every conference game or lose at most one game (but by less than 10 points), then;

4) Win your conference championship game

Playoff bound!
