BEAT THAT SCHOOL IN OHIO!
For anyone who has played football, coached it, etc. how much of field goal kicking is really coaching?
I grew up playing soccer and I've always equated FG kicking to penalty kicks: meaning there are plenty of techniques, but its really more about how you handle pressure and your mental fortitude than anything else. Either you were good at them because you thrived under the pressure or you failed because you couldn't take it.
Is field goal kicking really that much about coaching?
Step up...are you Blue or not? I don't think going on WTKA and being a naysayer is the way to go. How will Brady Hoke turn out? None of us know. But speak of Hope, not the negative.
This kind of goes along with WindyCityBlue’s earlier point about being an elite program – do we, as a program, as a fan base, care about national championships?
As annoying as Drew Sharp is, I actually understand his line of questioning yesterday. Shouldn’t our goal every year be to win a national championship, not just the Big Ten? I realize that winning the Big Ten is, most likely, a step along the way but there were many times over the years when we lost in September and all hopes of a national championship were dashed. Then, as a fan base, we all said, well at least we can still win the Big Ten.
I was at the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1, 1998 and I got a taste of what it was like to be the very best and I want that back! I don’t want to settle for just GOING to Pasadena every few years. But, the more I hear other people talk, they seem just fine with that. Is it me? Is it wrong to want more? I’m honestly really struggling with this so I need feedback.
Please don’t negbang me to Bolivian - I don't have enough MGoPoints to sustain it!
bjk on another thread brought up a good point.
We should no longer mention the team down South by name so the abbrivation should be tTDS.
Unless somebody has a better idea...
