Cheers to Bell’s and Founders announcing they’ll start selling in Colorado! How I’ve waited for thee...
|09/06/2018 - 3:22pm||Oh I didn’t say a 31-14 win…||
Oh I didn’t say a 31-14 win will shut the fan base up.... In fact I think until we find a rhythm on offense, we’ll struggle to produce points and the collective sigh will get louder.
I’d also bet our foes are using this most recent loss as a chance to rally their teams behind the “wounded giant” mantra. I sincerely hope we start beating the shit out of teams by 40+ points. But I’m not sure when that will happen.
|09/06/2018 - 2:44pm||31-14.
The o line tricks…
The o line tricks us into forgetting about them for a couple weeks but the problems are only a bandaid against WMU and SMU.
Side note: I thought DMC looked much more comfortable stepping up in the pocket than Shea. Now if he didn’t have the physical make up of a 6’4 coat rack, I’d say give him more time.
|09/06/2018 - 9:55am||What if the moon was made…||
What if the moon was made out of spare ribs?
|09/06/2018 - 2:33am||Does anyone know if they…||
Does anyone know if they allow serviceable left or right offensive tackles inside the stadium? Asking for my friend Jim...
|09/05/2018 - 8:57pm||I’d like to know too…||
I’d like to know too. Coaches need to gameplan to establish a rhythm and add in a few wrinkles when the time comes. Better yet, it should primarily be one coach calling the plays and if someone in the booth recognizes a mismatch, send it down to the field.
Instead it sounds like 3 or 4 coaches are busy taking turns at Madden and nobody knows who should hold the controller.
|09/05/2018 - 8:24pm||You can run a clean program…||
You can run a clean program and win big games by year 4 of your tenure. I know we only have one game so far this year to base this off of and improvements will be made but the hype train has definetly been derailed at this point, if not hijacked.
|09/05/2018 - 2:22pm||Kind of stretching your…||
Kind of stretching your extrapolation here. I mean, yes, we did lose 24-17 but anyone watching that game can you tell you it felt much more like a safe 2-3 score lead by ND than anything. It was like the offense did not play with any urgency or emotion until let's say... 4 minutes left in the game.
|09/05/2018 - 2:10pm||I hate this. Maybe I'm just…||
I hate this. Maybe I'm just so outside the loop of what it means to be an offensive coordinator in college football but how many cooks do you need in the kitchen?
On the flip side, does Mattison call DLine changes or Zordich call DB blitzes on his own? I'm pretty sure it's just D Brown calling everything.
|09/05/2018 - 5:21am||I’m surprised so many highly…||
I’m surprised so many previously highly rated recruits go straight to the CC football route without investigating MAC, MWC, or one of the G5 conferences where competition is still competitive but more importantly a four year degree goes a lot farther. I understand many transfer that route due to poor grades, behavioral issues or legal stuff too but that’s such a drop off in my opinion. Even if they are featured on a Netflix documentary or whatever.
|09/04/2018 - 10:43am||Concerning the snap count:…||
Concerning the snap count: Weren't Patterson and Ruiz on the same team in HS? Obviously there's been a break in the action for them but they should feel pretty comfortable with each other. It looks somewhat similar to RR's offenses in that there's pre-snap cadence that seems to take 4-5 seconds from when Shea makes the call for the ball and when Ruiz finally snaps.
|09/04/2018 - 10:33am||"I didn't get to finish my…||
"I didn't get to finish my thoughts on this."
Probably should post this in the diary section but who cares... the sky has fallen.
|09/02/2018 - 11:31am||Based on last night’s game,…||
Based on last night’s game, I see us losing again to UW, MSU and OSU. Call it a hot take if you must but I just think our cap right now is beating the teams we should and losing against teams we’re even with or not as good as. The rhetoric of being a horrible road and losing to our rivals seems be more true now than ever. Wonder how long that can last?
|09/02/2018 - 11:08am||Yeah I think you’re wrong on…||
Yeah I think you’re wrong on this one. If it’s a back and forth game with a few mistakes here and there, fine.
But don’t tell me I wouldn’t have felt better if the score was closer at HT and we showed life of a time that has remedied the mistakes. I would’ve gladly taken a last second score from ND to lose that game if it meant we got our shit together and looked competitive.
|09/02/2018 - 10:47am||Yeah he’s going to take some…||
Yeah he’s going to take some heat on this one. Really had a chance to set the tone and instill some confidence but the same issues that plagued us last year are still glaring problems.
If last night’s game was more of a classic, exciting clash, then he gets some leeway but we were down 21-3. If not for an AT return for td, it could’ve been much worse. Time to move on but the margins for allowing the same mistakes is getting razor thin.
|09/02/2018 - 12:23am||Well the excitement is over…||
Well the excitement is over... If it was a fun, exciting game and we lost, so be it but that was just brutal. Wake me up when Nebraska comes to town.
|09/01/2018 - 11:54pm||I’m glad the 2nd half…||
I’m glad the 2nd half defense made the right adjustments but I don’t know what the scouting report was going into this game? Their QB is good no doubt but our D should’ve been dictating their play and they did not do that. Also tough when your offense seems to be playing water polo for some reason.
|09/01/2018 - 11:32pm||This defense is high-risk…||
This defense is high-risk/high-reward on way too many plays sometimes and high temp offenses with quick twitch QBs and RBs keep them on their heels.
|09/01/2018 - 11:28pm||Paper didn’t play that game?…||
Paper didn’t play that game? The first half defense looked like 11 pieces of tissue paper running around.
Tonight was the first time I felt uneasy about them being on the field.
|09/01/2018 - 11:19pm||The pre-snap RPO…||
The pre-snap RPO handclapping shit has got to go. The wait between the center and the qb takes about an extra 4-5 seconds we didn’t have.
|08/30/2018 - 11:44am||I know season ticket holders…||
I know season ticket holders that have missed games and weren't able to find anyone to take them, even for free with a few days notice.
It's all about options in my opinion. College kids, local alumnus or die-hards within 50-60 miles and those looking to attend a first game will shell out the cost of tickets. But not only that, if you don't live on campus or close to it you have to pay for gas, parking, tailgate supplies, concessions and maybe a t-shirt or swag item.
The $$$ starts to add up quick and if you're a family man who has to pay for the tickets, everything else and coordinate getting the family to and from the stadium, suddenly your couch and 6 pack sounds pretty reasonable.
|08/30/2018 - 10:22am||Seems to be in the right…||
Seems to be in the right place at the right time. This is important because although he's a hard hitter with a nose for the ball, I don't see the twitchy, lightning-fast disrupter our previous and current vipers have been described as... Which is ok because they're really fucking good.
|08/28/2018 - 10:26am||You don't remember DISCUSS?…||
You don't remember DISCUSS? Come on, MAN!
|08/28/2018 - 10:22am||I vote for a new user…||
I vote for a new user-submitted banner contest. We did these like 8 years ago and it was actually really cool to see how talented and creative our community is. That was much more fun than say... oh, I don't know... Draftegeddon?
Speaking of, Draftegeddon is basically a typed out version of a podcast no matter how it's tweaked or condensed. Although full of really good info and some funny one-liners, it reads like a god damn sitcom script.
|08/25/2018 - 12:31am||Ssshhh! Don’t tell Quattro…||
Ssshhh! Don’t tell Quattro or else he won’t have a reason to post on this blog. Honestly the only reason he posts here only has to do with the Lions playing on Sunday like he’s some kind of truth-speaker. When in all reality he’s a troll just waiting for them to fuck up. A miserable existence for sure. I lump him and his posts in with OSU and MSU trolls.
|08/24/2018 - 3:30pm||Maybe a September stumble…||
Maybe a September stumble for OSU? Getting to start the season vs the weakest teams in the B1G and Pac-12 is pretty nice but on the road at TCU and again away at PSU to end the month?
I'm sure the liar who runs that program is still pulling the strings during this suspension but it's not so crazy to think they could have 2 losses by the end of next month...
|08/24/2018 - 4:14am||One. More. Week.

We can do this...

I find tinsel very distracting.
|08/23/2018 - 11:11am||It certainly depends on the…||
It certainly depends on the institution but if this was anyone but Urban Meyer or another high profile coach (Saban, Dabo, maybe Harbaugh) under the exact same circumstances, there's no fucking way the coach is retained. Nobody will ever convince me that if Meyer had a career record around .500 that OSU welcomes him back.
No benefit of the doubt, no investigation and no suspension. That dude would be fired on the fucking spot, even by the inept OSU officials.
No. Fucking. Way.
|08/22/2018 - 3:54pm||Yeah, I know. I don't win a…||
Yeah, I know. I don't win a lot. I drag race in a Prius.

|08/22/2018 - 1:16pm||Although I don't think PSU…||
Although I don't think PSU will make the playoff, I don't think they're as far back as people would like to think. BiSB's Opponent Watch from today lays out that they might take a step back without having Barkley but they should be fine. Especially if their recruiting uptick keeps steady. The top 4 teams in the B1G East are basically creating their own divisional conference playoff during the season this year. Should be fun.
|08/22/2018 - 11:47am||Why throw your perfectly…||
Why throw your perfectly good cock rings at walking piles of human trash?
Edit: That was pretty harsh but I really think OSU fumbled this process.

Don't forget the $50 gift card to Shakey's Pizza as token of their appreciation.

Hoping for transparency from OSU regarding this particular scandal? Oh, that's rich...
The lack of transparency is the only thing saving their asses right now.
|08/22/2018 - 11:29am||It's kind of like when you…||
It's kind of like when you're a teenager and do something so bad that you actually suggest to your parents you should be grounded for a week to distract them from the fact you should really be grounded for a month.
|08/22/2018 - 10:47am||Something tells me Urban…||
Something tells me Urban walks into the board room to the surprise of streamers, a welcome back cake and a clown. Everyone's wearing a pointy party hat and has to watch Urban play with his welcome back presents first before anyone else gets a chance. Everyone laughs and says let's do this again next year.
|08/22/2018 - 10:36am||A lot of people say how…||
A lot of people say how disappointed they are with Meyer but acknowledge kids, -cough-, coaches make mistakes and will lie more clearly next time, err, tell the truth.
I also bet a directional piece of my testicles that they announce some new protocol or class just for the football team called "How to report abusive relationships" because everyone needs to know how to be a good, decent person.
|08/22/2018 - 10:25am||So much good stuff but my…||
So much good stuff but my highlights are:
1. bend-briefly-and-then-break-and-then-get-orange-slices philosophy
2. Win six, and you can play, like, Wake Forest or NC State. C’mon Rutgers. We believe in you**.
3. Pictured: Wisconsin’s greatest scientist
Also spot on about Urban Meyer and OSU. It's so clear what the path of mistakes are yet anyone from the OSU side of things just wants to muddle it up as much as possible and hope someone can make a theory out of it. Who needs facts and righteousness when you can have wins, right?
|08/21/2018 - 1:26pm||Maybe it's you who should…||
Maybe it's you who should keep your own parenting tips to yourself? That way you don't get the unsolicited responses you've received :/
|08/21/2018 - 10:34am||I'd temper expectations just…||
I'd temper expectations just a little as it's the first game, on the road against a ranked, rival team. There's going to be some hiccups and I bet a few mistakes that make you pull your hair out. At this point against a good ND team at night at their place, a win is a win.
Now if the mistakes persist against the likes of WMU or SMU, that's when you should be worried.

Does Brian really think Shea is in the same mold at Tate?
Cause if so, I'm gonna be sad.
