I will admit I am not an expert regarding Borges' offensive schemes he ran in the past and I realize that we have not seen "the entire playbook". However, I am curious why we don't seem to have a few basic check options for Denard to call. I realize that we can't add too much to his plate, but I would think there would be some basic ability to change up the play at the line. Maybe I have missed us actually using an audible at the line, don't know if there is any insider info regarding integrating this capability.
Second, with players like Gallon, why don't we use motion more to move people around or even incorporate a quick pitch or swing pass on the run? Does Borges not use this much in his scheme? Was not sure of the downside if any beyond just philosophy.
I couldn't resist the temptation to read some Bucknuts last night to help me fall soundly asleep. Enjoy this little gem from a very salty old man:
Effective right fucking now, fire the defensive shithead coach who allows O. Johnson to go on the field one more time. Obviously, our defensive backfield coach and defensive coordinator never watch any of the plays when they are at the games, otherwise, they would have to have an IQ of less then Mark May's to not see that the poor kid is a chickenshit and hates contact. Christ, I'm 67 years old and I gauranfuckingtee you I can out tackle No. 19. He is a complete embarrassment and the other defensive players should take him behind the barn and kick the livin' shit out of him. GODDAMN IT!! What is it going to take to get these coaches to start playing the players and sit the one that can't play? This is not a union where seniority rules. PLAY THE KIDS THAT LOVE THE GAME AND HAVE THE PASSION TO BUST SOMEONE"S ASS WHEN THEY RUN AT THEM!!
Not to be that guy who starts a thread for this, but can anyone provide insight on away game prices for Northwestern and Illinois? On Stubhub NU prices are starting at $65 (Illinois starting at $29 seems much more accurate), which seems very high for a Northwestern game. If I was willing to wait until game week/ almost kickoff would I be able to find better deals or should I stop being a little b-tch and just buy now?
Any help is appreciated and please feel free to hijack this thread for related questions because I realize it's not a great OP.
Baylor destroyed Stephen F. Austin on Saturday by the score of 48-0, with RGIII having another incredible game. However there was a 41 minute lightning delay in the first half and the game was called after three quarters - kind of.
During the delay the coaches agreed to skip halftime and reduce the final two quarters to 12 minutes each - is that even allowed? The game continued in the second half, but with 3 minutes left in the (shortened) third quarter more lightning was approaching the stadium. The two coaches met at midfield and agreed to let the clock run out in the quarter (without running any plays).
As we know after the WMU game, since three quarters were completed the game is official according to NCAA rules and all stats will apparently be kept. This seems ridiculous to me because the game really only lasted 39 minutes, 42 including the 3 minute runoff. Compare this to the UM-WMU game where 43 1/2 minutes were completed, but the stats were not kept by the NCAA.
So WTF NCAA? Why should Baylor get to keep their stats but not Michigan? Why couldn't the last minute and a half of the 3Q magically run off the clock for the UM-WMU game? I WANT ANSWERS.
