"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."

We played pretty below average in the first and only down two. Not bad, but where could it be if we play to potential? Frustratingly inconsistent.

How good could be if he could make anything outside of 5 feet.

Maybe that'll get his blood pumping

Tired of playing the GRIII sweepstakes. Especially when it seems he has more mediocre or worse games than above average. He just seems so lifeless out there.

Glad to hear everything went well.
|43 weeks 6 days ago||Shane||
I hope Shane shreds the KSU defense. I've been wanting to see what he can do for a while now. Now that there's really nothing to lose, hopefully they let him off the chain and maybe we'll see what could be or could've been?

what's hurting us is not being able to keep the defense off the field for any significant period of time

um yeah, not bad when the d has their backs to the wall all day long and they spend almost all game on the field. So yes...Matteson is worth keeping. He can teach, unlike the rest of the staff.

Matteson is the only one worth keeping. Fire the rest and start over. This isn't working. Hell, its only getting worse.

After seeing.g just how game changing and explosive he can be, I would've liked to have seen DeAnthony Thomas play for us.

Wow it just got really dusty in here. Thank you Denard, it's been an honor.

Borges' kindergarten granddaughter could have called better offense in the second half. To those who say we're overreacting after one loss, it's not the first time Al has lost us a game.

I will be there.

My biggest Borges gripe is calling a qb designed run up the gut after MSU has stuffed it all day after getting six on first down. There Was a drive in the fourth quarter we made it to their side of the field and we got 6 yards on first down for second and four and wound up in third7 because of a draw call. Fitz had some room and u know MSU is looking for Denard to run. Give to Fitz or ...gasp...try a bubble screen. The outside was there for the taking on multiple occasions, but we kept trying to pound the middle.

I think the OP means sparty is looking like the sparty we all remember.

To all schools who have one of these shirts produced....way to keep it classy. Pure trash.
|2 years 11 weeks ago||As does Darboh according to||
As does Darboh according to Rivals. Darboh ran track as well. Don't know his results as I'm not a big Track and Field guy. I just think Darboh adds the playmaking ability that few possess.
|2 years 11 weeks ago||Darboh can really do it all.||
Darboh can really do it all. I've lived in Iowa for 24 years now and have seen a lot of local football. Darboh is easily the best WR prospect to come out of this state in a long time. He and Chesson are very close in size, but I think Darboh wins out on playmaking ability with the ball in his hands. I've seen Chesson on film and think that Darboh is more elusive after the catch. Either way, it's nice to be able to have to discuss depth more than worry about what happens if a starter gets dinged.
|2 years 14 weeks ago||Actually, I have to||
Actually, I have to respectfully disagree. I am recently divorced and had to do some furniture shopping for my new home. I decided on the Restonic Tempa Gel series. It's a memory foam like Tempurpedic, but the foam is gel infused to help keep you cool and not create hot spots like the Tempurpedic can. Also, they are the same prices and less than Tempurpedic. I greatly recommend it.

This is why I won't travel south of the Mason Dixon line.

Not really news that he's a whiny bitch. Remember 2006? If not, allow me to refresh your memory.

Very sad indeed. The things this man and his family have done for the community, the university, and college football are vast. I refuse to remember JoePa in a negative light regardless of what others say. I believe he was put in a no win situation and did what was best for his family.
JoePa is an icon and should be remembered as such. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

So you don't think they should stop the game for the review to make the correct call? The review got the call right.
|2 years 41 weeks ago||Ball rotation||
The biggest factor for me in showing the pass was incomplete is that the ball rotates in his hands when it makes contact with the ground. If you watch the stripes on the ball from the outside of the endzone cam it shows the stripes rotate. Thus the ground causes the ball to dislodge from possession upon landing. If the ball is loose and rotating in his hands when he comes down. and the ball hit the ground that is an incomplete pass

I saw gholston doing the eating motion too. How douchey is it that they made fun of denard doing it but they do it too then?
|2 years 42 weeks ago||There's some great plays||
There's some great plays talked about here and most are more than worthy, but I am going to draw from something a little more subtle. Jake Ryan knifing into the backfield vs. Notre Dame to complete the stop on a drive that could have salted the game away and possibly changed the whole outlook for the season. It's been a long time since I've seen our D make game saving plays on a regular basis. Without Hoke, Mattison, and this D....this whole year turns out much differently. Even with Denard and Co. on the other side of the ball.
Video starts at the 8:10 mark when Ryan flies into the backfield like a guided missile to drop the ND tailback cold.

I can vouch now too. Thanks for the hospitality last weekend before the thrashing of Nebraska. You guys were just one more awesome thing about my first trip to the Big House last Saturday.
