Sometimes you need a wake up call and hopefully this was it

Yeah apparently time heals all wounds. Effing how many people here remember App St., Oregon, the Ohio losing streak, 3-8, 5-7, 7-5, Toledo, 2 coaching searches, too much practice, sail boats, Gerg. It's about 4-5 years after all that stuff. I remember how I felt after those games ... How I felt sitting in the stands for fandom badge I and II. I am glad they won, I hope they learned a lot of lessons and I hope they come out against UConn and make them look like they should have made Akron look today.

but the record book still says W and that's what people will remember years from now. Most of us have forgotten scares from Ball State (06) and various Indiana, Purdue, Illinois etc scares of recent years but no one forgets the loss. We won and thats what it boils down to

this one was on Devin. Single handedly caused 3 turnovers the 4th was a deflection that wasn't his fault. He looked shaky and hesistent after the first couple and only looked good when he was running. The line couldn't run block and the D couldn't stop a MAC offense. Granted Terry Bowden doesn't suck. Having said all that 4 TO's put the D in a bad situation and kept them on the field too long.

I don't think he told Devin to give the ball to the other team.

 No, this is a shared bullet dodging.  Mattison looked like GERG.  Hoke darn near coached the Horror 2.  The defense...Good Lord.  Nobody, and I mean nobody bothered to prepare for the team they played today.  We were lucky to walk away from this one 3-0.

I understand that Mattison Can Do No Wrong on this forum but I think that defensive game plan could have been a lot better. They needed to do something to disrupt the momentum and pace of Akron's passing game and they hardly tried to generate a pass rush outside of their front 4 until the last couple of plays. This entire team AND coaching staff is at fault.

Those IU teams scored a ton of points on us.  Today, Akron moved the ball but only scored 17 offensively, and three of those came after we shanked a punt at our own 31.  It was not a good defensive performance, but it was not Gerg-bad.  Gerg's guys would not have gotten two defensive stops inside our own 5-yard line in the 4th quarter.

Talk about dodging a bullet.  Quck thoughts:


Devin Gardner is a turnover machine and he is not improving like he should in that respect.

Hoke is too soft on the team. Time to blow it up and get angy coach.

Both lines interior are soft.  Time for Miler to sit down he is soft and it starts with him.

Mattison was outschemed

Can I say soft?

I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.
