...I have a 3 month old and a house that's doing just fine.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||To be fair...||
ND was a decent game. So 2 out of 11 to be precise (excluding CMU because...well obviously).
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Problem is...||
Gardener couldn't really run for the last series...he was pretty much hobbled.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Fu man||
It was the right call for two and Devon had plenty of reads. Get your head out of your ass and just say we were a good team that didn't convert
|3 weeks 3 hours ago||What a bunch of girls||
...no that makes girl seem like weak inferior beings.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Fook off...||
.. These kids and staff will go all out to win. Your comment is insulting to say the least.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I agree...||
...Bellomy was awful at Nebraska last year (I also most got kicked of of a bar watching that game)...but my (perhaps my poorly phrased) point wasn't about game results, it was about momentum.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Brian - thats cool...||
it's your blog after all.
However after watching the Iowa game again (awful experience) on BTN replay after a skinful at a work function (took some of the pain away)...I have to say there were 4 plays that turned the momentum of the game around in 3rd Quarter...none of which were on Al B.
1) Devin Funchess drops dead on pass
2) Next play...Devin Funchess drops dead on pass leading to 3 and long (if I remember correctly...as I said, I had a skinful)
3) DG turning a 6 yard run into a 4 yard loss leading to 2 & 14 instead of 2 & 6.
4) Defence giving up a long TD run with several missed tackles.
This was the definition of execution. As the season has gone on, our receivers have got worse at helping our QB get early confidence (almost as bad as last year at Nebraska when poor Bellomy had any catchable pass dropped awfully).
Outside of those plays, we did have a couple of bad play calls (reverse after a jet sweep anyone) and our OL can't seem to block the blitz....but I had concluded this game wasn't on Al (and I am a critic)...it WAS on execution.
Was hoping that UFR would validate my drunken observations. But looks like its extended gratification (or not) for me.
Happy thanksgiving folks.

|3 weeks 6 days ago||5 and counting||
Pray tell what are you drinking. It's four losses to date. 5 are on the cards, but it's not done yet.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||You guys||
Are freaking ridiculous. Borges needs to go. D was OK, not great, but don't hang this loss on them. There were 4 forced turnovers for f sake!!
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Cmong man||
What the hell is wrong with us. That wasn't on borges
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Agree...||
...perhaps median would be a better metric. Might be just me though.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||If it was for gay slurs...||
...(which is pur speculation btw) hats off to EMU for the stance they took. Would like to see more of it.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||With...||
Baked potato and sour cream with bacon bits an creamed spinach. Looks like steak for lunch today

...hold tight... It gets better but never goes away. One month is awesome. Keep working at it...a day at a time.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Don't read...||
Many of the comments then huh? Space adds sane and insightful points to a shit fight.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Except...||
...you didn't post it. So perhaps almost a genius?
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Feel free...||
...to come up with and execute your own UFR if you aren't happy with the standardized and years tested one Brian performs.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||...and that's the d formation against Borges||
Guess the call is Run between the tackles on this one too!
|10 weeks 10 hours ago||META: Jump not working for me||
Anyone else having problems with the jump taking you straight to comments and not the rest of the preview. Tried on both IE and Firefox...same behavior.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Or..||
...post sensible replies. Was the comment about the UFR incorrect? Or just your opinion makes you right.
|12 weeks 1 day ago||Brave....||
...keep at the HW.....couple of things to consider...sample size and standard deviation of play. Average is almost always misleading.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||4 turnovers in a game...||
... Means any team will stick around. 1 TO a game from now on gets us a 9-3 season IMHO.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Troll....||
...that is all.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Nice work...||
|13 weeks 3 days ago||What are you drinking?||
Bowels can't deal with two drinks? Sheesh...sounds messy.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Is it rude...||
...to point out your reasons aren't mutually exclusive?
|13 weeks 6 days ago||I am embarrassed..||
I high fived against Akron after third quarter and swore I wouldn't do it again... Until the last play.
|15 weeks 2 days ago||Ace - nice email||
Well articulated, accurate if provocative for that fan base.
