|1 week 1 day ago||I have a 45 mile commute one||
I have a 45 mile commute one way. This is basically hell. I will be spending a lot of time in the car today.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||There are a lot of bad things||
There are a lot of bad things in sports, but sometimes you get to see something so great it reminds you why you love watching kids play a game. It doesn't always have to be misery and agony every second. It was nice to get a reminder of that.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||The O-line wasn't bad at all||
The O-line wasn't bad at all tonight, and they have been much better this year. Gardner is broken.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Defense played great, but I||
Defense played great, but I think they wore down at the end a little after being on the field all night. Frank Clark was beast tonight though.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Why does Gardner get to stay||
Why does Gardner get to stay in the game when he makes mistake after mistake? His last interception was ridiculous. We could have won this game by 4 Td's. Gardner is killing us. I like the kid, and I'm sure some of you will say he is best option but I would prefer to see the other options.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||This is brutal. The only||
This is brutal. The only reason I came here is because I need a break from the official game thread.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||I always wonder how different||
I always wonder how different things would have been it Casteel came with him from West Virginia. I liked Shafer a lot but him and Rich Rod didn't mesh for some reason. It doesn't matter now, but his offenses were a lot of fun to watch. Those defenses were a crime against humanity though.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||I'm rooting for ND, and for||
I'm rooting for ND, and for some reason I think they will win. I'm rooting for Tenn. just because. I think they have the athletes to keep it close but will come up short. I have Nebraska in the the final game and will be rooting for them. I just like Pelini now after he embraced the cat pic by bringing cat out on the field with him. I know it is a dumb reason, but that is all I have at this point.
I will be drinking Apothic Red wine during games, and have some Founders Breakfast Stout ready if the FSU-ND game gets interesting.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||I'm glad we won. The QB||
I'm glad we won. The QB sneak calls were beyond dumb. Even the first one where we called TO right before attempting it. The kids played hard but Penn State's O-line is a tire fire. That is what I expected our Defense to look like all season. It would be nice if we can get healthy before MSU.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||I think we win big today.||
I think we win big today. That being said, it is 2:00 and I've consumed a DogFish Head Palo Santo Marron (12%) and a Burton Baton (10%). My judgement is impaired at this point.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||I couldn't agree with you||
I couldn't agree with you more. I know it would never happen but in a fictional world where I could have anyone, he would be my #2 behind Harbaugh and it would be a close call between the two of them.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||I'd be ok with Miles but he||
I'd be ok with Miles but he isn't my first choice. His roster has been depleted by all the guys he has sent to the NFL early. I wouldn't mind having that problem. I have no doubt he would win here and get program back on track, but don't think he is a game-changer hire like Harbaugh (Jim) would be.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||I like Patterson but like||
I like Patterson but like Mullen more if we are talking the non-Harbaugh candidates. I wanted Mullen last time when we hired Hoke. The memory of the beatdown he put on us was fresh in my mind. All the SEC candidates make me nervous though. I assume every single one of them is shady. I have no idea how you put a winner together at Miss. State but he is doing it. I think he would recruit well and be able to utilize what we already have.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||He seems nice. I genuinely||
He seems nice. I genuinely believe he cares about the kids. He graduates his players. Now, please fire his ass.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||I never imagined things could||
I never imagined things could get this bad. We are the worst coached team in college, high school, or Pee Wee football.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||I must have stated that we||
I must have stated that we will have an elite defense this season 100 times prior to the season actually starting. Please neg me into oblivion. This is fucking ridiculous. We won't win again this season.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||I'm drinking gasoline||
I'm drinking gasoline tonight. A nice 93 octane should do.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||One New Holland the Poet. It||
One New Holland the Poet. It isn't Breakfast Stout but it will do tonight.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||^^^^^ This is exactly how I||
^^^^^ This is exactly how I feel about the situation. This wouldn't be near the story it is if we were a better football team.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||I just drank a whole bottle||
I just drank a whole bottle of Apothic Red wine which seemed kind of fitting. Dallas is curb stomping the Saints which is a surprise. I think it is probably bed time for me at this points
|8 weeks 3 days ago||A glass of red wine. It was||
A glass of red wine. It was the least I've drank on a Saturday in a long time. I took the wife out for dinner before the game was wrapped up. I think I'm done with football on Saturday afternoons. I love the team but is just making Saturdays miserable. I ended up having a nice day when it was all said and done.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Do you remember the ESPN show||
Do you remember the ESPN show Playmakers? It was great show and did well in ratings but didn't paint a picture of the NFL that they liked and the show went away. PTI discussed it in the last couple weeks, and said it was not renewed in an effort to keep the NFL happy. I'm not saying that is why ESPN suspended Simmons but ESPN absolutely will make decisions to keep the NFL happy.
|9 weeks 8 hours ago||I totally understand that||
I totally understand that philosphy, but it just feels weird to me having a guy plea to a felony and then reinstating him so you can squeeze a couple games out of him before he is sentenced. Additionally the fact that Mitch got a 6 month suspension for marijuana from the NCAA makes thisfeel even more ridiculous. I understand Mitch's punishment came from the NCAA but the difference in punishments is tough to swallow when in my mind the felony theft charge is infinitely worse.
|9 weeks 9 hours ago||That is insane. That is a||
That is insane. That is a felony and he sits out 2 games. I understand the article indicates High Court misdemeanor, but anything over a year is a felony despite the label of High Court misdemeanor. You would think he would have some jail time coming as well. This seems on the light side to me.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||I agree with the sentiments||
I agree with the sentiments of this board in regard to the presser. It is time to take a step back and be glad there are good guys coaching these kids. I don't know why the results aren't there at this point, but I'm ready for the rest of the season. The fan in me still believes they can right this ship. The Offense has to get better as they get more experience in the system. I'm going to keep believing that anyway. There is still a lot to play for this season.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||I totally agree with this.||
I totally agree with this. There is a possibility of something like 18 starters being back next year. Someone could come in and really reap the reward of all Hoke's recruiting efforts.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||I wanted Mullen back when we||
I wanted Mullen back when we fired RichRod. It was fresh in my memory the beatdown his MSU team put on us. I've heard rumblings though that his program isn't the cleanest. There aren't a huge crop of interesting coaching candidates that are realistic.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Gardner was broken somewhere||
Gardner was broken somewhere along the way last year. He has tunnel vision right now. I would rather go with the gunslinger. At least he is trying to spread the ball around.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||I still think we can win most||
I still think we can win most of our games other than OSU and MSU. That being said, I am miserable and hateful right now. I did score my first breakfast stout of the season by Founders. It is amazing no matter how bad the football team is playing.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||This isn't on Brandon. He||
This isn't on Brandon. He has ponied up the money for the best assistants money can buy. It just isn't working for some reason
