I know Denard is injured, but I'm shocked(correction after the last 10 years I am more frustrated on the lack of imagination for this game each year I can no longer be shocked) that he did not attempt a pass in this game. After that 1st half the 4th down play was perfectly set up for a qb "oh noes". My understanding is that Denard has thrown in practice for 2 weeks and has warmed up before the last 2 games.
My question is for anyone who has been at the games the last 2 weeks. Has anyone seen him warm up? How bad did it look? Unless he was throwing the ball backward I think this was a horrid mistake. If he really can't throw worth a shit they should have let him throw a screen or heave it for a jump ball early to back them off. If he's just a little rusty then they should have sprung it in the 2nd half a few times.
On a positive note, Denard finished the game with 122 yards today including that explosive 67 yarder that was incredible to see in person. This brings his career total to 4,395 yards--just 85 yards short of Pat White's 4,480 with a bowl game left to play. I know a few weeks ago it looked like a lost cause, but I now think he has a great shot of doing it.
Anyways, just trying to bring some happiness to the board and I didn't see this posted yet.
As a side note, chill out people. Please. Yell at your cat or punch a pillow instead. Don't give these guys any more satisfaction than they already have.
I'm so sick of the media falling all over the Irish. I certainly would rather not hear about them every day for the next month.
Can a freshman QB lead the Trojans to a win? Does Marquise Lee make a Heisman statement tonight? Does the complete sham of ND's undefeated season come to an end tonight? Is it wrong for me to want ND's fans to feel the kind of sadness I feel after The Game today?
NO BORGES TALK IN THIS THREAD PLZ
Jerry Kill had another seizure, this one at halftime during the Gopher's game with Michigan State. He is recovering at home.
