The first thing that has to go in this post is that I would love it if MGoPodcast returned. I listened to every single MGoPodcast last year, sometimes I slept with them playing in my ears.
Now that we have that out of the way, let's make the main thing the main thing. Does anybody listen to good podcasts that are entirely or primarily about college football?
I listened to EDSBS Live when Brian was on it, and then listened to it again last week. It's not bad, but it's not great either. Spencer is hard to hear, and it is still sports talk radio even if it is 100 times better than the sports talk radio actually on the radio. Despite these shortcomings, I will probably listen to some future episodes. Especially if Big Boutros calls in again.
Are there any others out there worth listening to? If you follow an awesome podcast that's not about college football, I wouldn't mind hearing about it (even though that's off-topic).
After the queasy uneasiness abated a bit in the 2nd quarter when M started looking like M again, and as that debilitating nausea began to recur in the 4th, no doubt the bilious presaging of doom regurgitated the realization: “We could actually lose this game. The horror.”
Only in the agony of victory did we realize we’d soiled our pants.
Since ‘freude insists that a little neurosis is good for the soul (of your psychiatrist), I’m curious as to your state of mind as reality forced you to realize you may be watching a Saturday sequel to The Horror.
- Little House on the Prarie *yawn*
- Maybe we should hold off on extending the coach’s contract.
- My! Massachusetts’ linebacker is performing quite swimmingly for a frosh!
- Give Denard the d**n ball!
- I always said I liked Lloyd ball!
- Gerg and his hair have both got to go!
- Things that suck: (1) Former coach Rich Rodriguez, (2) everything else.
- Apocalypse now. Armageddon at 11.
I like to make the trip to a lot of home games but could not make it last week. Just a few questions about umass game experience.
1. How loud was the stadium compared to Uconn
2. What rawk songs were played and how often?
3. Did they announce slippery rock score?
4. What did people think of the pre game pump up video?
5. Any other video's played?
My first MGoPost
I think we need to visit the positive side of our last game. What we've seen the past few years makes us quick to roll our eyes. However, I think there is a lot of good to take away.
-We would have not won this game last year. Why? Offense. not just the fact we are denarded now, but, he does play into it. We can do soooo much more with less risk this year its scary. No one had to key on tate like the nard dog. meaning you could stop our running game by stopping only one part. And big plays were possible but with MUCH more risk last year. We stretch a team out so much with real good options, we can eliminate the risk that would have killed us in a game like this. Imagine what more turnovers would have resulted in. yeah.
-We showed nothing on defense. I know, we don't have much to show, but, scheme wise, We played the most vanilla defense I've seen for 3 weeks and we're 3-0. If your not motivated, playing on your heels and not calling anything to help that out, what happened saturday is going to happen. Now, it did get close, but, it got close real quick at the end, so I can see why we didn't panic into anything. That was a very tight, passive and unprepared defense. AND, we're 3-0. I don't think there is a lot in the playbook, but, there has to be some get em' off the field plays to unleash. We got in position to get off, just needed that little extra from somewhere.
-Cam Gordon found out what being the deepest guy on the field gets you. More interceptions then jumping routes with crappy angles.
-The offense learned never to get off the gas.
-Their pissed like only a loss could get you pissed.....and we're 3-0
May have already been posted on here but... I felt like redoing my Fitzgerald Toussaint picture as it was my most simplistic and worst looking one... so without further ado Fitz Toussaint in MS Paint.. also the may or may not be a certain sparty player failing to tackle him...
