From Portage Northern.
All of this freaking out is just pathetic. This is still a team that beat a good ND team last saturday. And maybe we should give those Akron kids a little more credit.
With all of that being said, Hoke is a glorifited recruiter and clearly gets outcoached whenever there's a formidable coach on the other side
Really? You think Brian Kelly outcoached him last week? I think most people would agree that Kelly, despite being a jerk, is a good coach.
But a win. Akron did almost everything right, and hard to deny that we were really out coached. Everyone will have lots of specifics to look at and get better at. Two biggest issues I saw were Gardner/ball control and Wile. No Bo-like option to bench the guy who is not getting better at ball control, so this will be a real coaching challenge. Get him to markedly decrease while not killing his confidence. Wile situation seems to me to be a "next guy in" solution.
On D, give the start to whomever was doing what they were supposed to. Depth should help here. And light a candle to the Blessed Mother of Returning From ACL Injury ASAP.
We Won but sure felt as Lewan stated....a loss...so Woss.
I say we never ever scheduled a team that starts with letter A!!!! Alabama, Applacian State, Akron...please lets move onto Connecticut.
Go Blue! I am still a fan.
