You are right, Sir, but the moment could have been so much better.

TWD lays it on thick when it comes to pretelling these moments. I had a feeling something was up when Ezekiel discussed the tiger rescue. It seemed heavy handed.

Elk - good comment. You are right. Three similar episodes. 

Shiva’s death was so weak. Just bad. A badass freaking tiger gets killed by rotted out zombies. Weak sauce. I get they must want Ezekiel to hit rock bottom, but it was a tiger. A tiger! Come on writers.

I agree Zach. Then bring in Jones in passing situations.

I was hoping to see improvement in this group. Now, I am hoping the backups hold strong and perhaps a star will be born this afternoon.

No spoilers

The difference between the seasons, IMO, was the focus. Season One we were introduced to these fantastic young characters and the weird virus of the upside-down. It took its time to develop the characters and focused on characters. Season two focused more on plot and the show suffered a bit. Suffering is relative because season two was still pretty freaking great.

I am probably going to get slammed, but this article is not groundless. A lot of our issues are due to player experience, NFL depleting our rosters, coaching changes, etc. We do lack discipline. We do play soft at times and we are a warm weather team playing in a cold weather region. See JT’s November struggles.

I also think we have a business-like atmosphere that seems to stifle player emotion. Sure, we see it on the hype videos but I do not notice much on the field. 

We are entitled because we have earned it. Success breeds entitlement. The problem is each year this entitlement should start anew. You have to earn it again and again. This year’s squad assumed it and didn’t take it and it’s showing in a lack of fundamentals, positioning and adjustments. 

It also shows in coaching egos. Not adjusting to players strengths, opponent’s weaknesses, scheme, playing perceived favorites, and a delay in making in-game adjustments, etc. 

All that being said, Sparty ‘hates us cuz they anus’. Dantonio would give his left testicle to the Buckeye head honcho.

My question would be - It seems like our team doesn't play with very much emotion. It almost seems very business-like. Is this something that trickles down from the coaches? Is it the weight of expectations?

Don't get me wrong, I don't want Meyer bro-ing out like Franklin on the sidelines, but it seems our players aren't having fun. We get an occasional fist pump from a lineman, but rarely see emotion.

Responses like this......I don't know. They make me scratch my head.

Something is off with Meyer, like that killer instinct is lacking or something, but he is one of the best college coaches out there. Part of me wonders if he needs a young hotshot offensive coordinator to mentor and to rekindle a fire.
