I feel like the only reason Higdon is mentioned is so he could write that line. So great.
Right, I don't think in this year meyer played his hand horribly, I don't blame him for Oklahoma or Iowa, but in that Clemson game jt was completely inept. We had absolutely nothing going on offense and we had nothing to lose if we tried someone else at qb.
Can't agree more with this, my vote is for the baugh td because I think that is a representation of jt in zone for those last two drives. Jt was in complete control of the game on that throw.
At first glance I thought this was a picture of Scoonie Penn.
I have some crow to eat, I wasn't confident jt could turn it around this season. I knew it was possible, but the way we were playing, it didn't seem likely. I think the biggest difference over the last few games was definitely play calling, they started working the crossing routes, jt got some confidence, and he became the distributor everyone loved his freshman year. Also have to give credit to the oline, they played lights out. Much respect for jt. Those last two touchdown drives he was in the zone.
Can't we just enjoy the win against IU?!
Based on poor play over the last two seasons and a no contact scrimmage.
I agree with you in this instance, but there is for sure way too much hype on 11w. I think the problem is there is too much hype in the off season, and too much hype with young players that we have hardly seen play or have never seen play. Once you read 11w all off season and hype up each player and each recruit, it's hard for some to switch gears or admit they were wrong when reality sits in.
This is the best analogy I have seen. Everyone seems to be missing the fact that he is getting low balled on his signing bonus, it's not just about the timing of it. Then when you factor in the part about if you fuck up they can negate your deal and you won't get anything, it makes a lot more sense why he would be holding out.
I actually miss listening to lebatard, now I have to listen to Dayton sports scene on my way home from work, I usually have to turn it off about five minutes in.
It's really sad that he feels like he needs to apologize for this.
Am I the only one more worried that russell apologized for this than him actually doing it?
Now that is funny
It's not necessary, but fallout one and two were amazing. The graphics will be nothing like today, but I loved the story and gameplay. You could do a lot worse with some of the crappy games that get put out these days.
So now everyone thinks JT has a weenie arm?
Sadly I think you're wrong.
It amazes me how people are ready to question his maturity and leadership from one tweet... He is the same guy we have been hyping up since the wisconsin game last year. I know I would be pissed if I threw two interceptions and got benched, this twitter thing is quite mild in my opinion. Cardale has proven what he is capable of and there is a reason he was named the starter. Believe it or not it's not about twitter, it's about executing on the field...
You have to be kidding me.. You think a guy who was down 21-6 playing Alabama in the sugar bowl and brought us back to win can't handle adversity because of a tweet? Do you expect him to not be upset? And I don't even see how that tweet is related, it was pretty benign.. It's all about executing on the field.
I love Darron Lee.
Agree, our defense never looked this good last year. Our offense took some time to come together also. The offensive line was horrendous this time last year, they have not looked good so far this year, but nothing near as bad as this time last year.
I am happy with this win. NIU is not your average cupcake and we shut down their offense. Obviously the oline will need to improve and I would like to see some younger guys get some game reps especially at left guard. I think we will be fine at qb with either guy not because I think anyone at qb should be able to win in this offense, but because I think both guys are great quarterbacks. I think Cardale has the higher ceiling and he showed that in the Wisconsin game last year but Barrett is the more consistent qb. Only thing that worries me is I don't want either guy to play scared and be afraid to lose the starting spot.
And as far as the play calling, it hasn't changed much at all since Meyer has been here, at times we execute it well and it looks great, sometimes we don't execute and it looks bad.
I am much happier with a dominating defense performance and a sloppy offensive performance than the reverse.
Couldn't agree more.
Am I the only one who remembers how much time Thomas spent on the bench last year and is a little nervous about it? I know he is easily our best receiving threat, but he was last year too and sat for stretches at a time. I am thinking it was a lack of effort in blocking but I am not sure if it extends beyond that.
Point taken, but from what I have seen I want to see more of smith and less of powell.
