I've read it all today. From "WTF FIRE RR NOW" all the way to "Wow I'm going to kill myself". I'm sure many of you have. I understand that, but it's not that bad. Sure we lost a bad game, and it was a terrible loss, but it's a game. Chill out at least a little bit. I don't know how our offensive line can go from what looked like domination of the Illinois defense early in the game to the point where we couldn't block guys long enough for Brown to run one yard in to the endzone. I don't even have a problem with that play calling, although I would like to see a pass play in the endzone there and see some different plays. I have a problem with the O-Line not being able to pass block at all for Tate in the second half. I truly do not understand how that happened. I totally understand that they lost a big piece in Molk, but that's not an excuse for what I saw out there. It's like whatever Brian puts in his posts as something we can exploit for the opposing team , the other team goes out and excells at. I was almost giddy reading the preview to this game, thinking that I would get to see us run the ball down their throats all game. Obviously, it didn't happen that way. I saw some threads about whether or not the spread works. That's a ridiculous thing to even have to think about. Of course it works. I'm not sure what the team can do to bounce back and get back on track. I honestly don't know what they are doing wrong. All I know is that the O-line is extremely inconsistent and the defense is just plain terrible and not fast overall. Tough loss, but I'm looking forward to our remaining games. Looks like this Purdue game is a GIANT of a game. Thoughts on the Offensive Line?
