  1. Hopefully they build on this and do not do an EMU and have a massive letdown after a big win. Need to keep it rolling. D needs to watch the second half to see how they did well and try to keep that up.
  2. I'm greedy, I want 7 so there is no doubt and then the Bowl.
  3. Miami OH, Bowling Green, UMass. Time get this thing right.
  4. Hopefully the Defense gets some confidence from the last few drives and pull their act together.
  5. Notched a shutout in their first MAC game too. Things are looking bright!
  6. Me too, at least we took a little clock. The second guy that hit Marshall could have been called for a late hit. That was unnecessary given the location out of bounds.
  7. I just want to go on record that Cole Snyder is NOT our problem in any way, shape or form.
  8. Any idea why Logic Hudgens left the program? He started at Maryland and I even spoke to a couple of his relatives at the game. Now he is gone from the roster but not in the portal from what I can see.
  9. Our D has underperformed as well. Look good in spots then give up a massive play usually on poor scheme or mental breakdown.
  10. We should do the same. If you are going to start 0-3, grab $5 million
  11. It's also a sad state of affairs for the conference. If we are the bottom of a bottom conference, bottom 10 ranking is justified.
  12. They have that, it's called the Dome at Syracuse University. The only thing is nobody gets to play there except SU on the taxpayer dime. So much for a private institution. State taxpayers paid 56% of the original dome. Not sure how much for the $205 million renovation, but I'm sure it was a significant contribution.
  13. Winning consistently, regular bowl appearances (2 out of 3 years at least), competing for MAC championships and finishing between 7-5 and 9-3 annually, given the resources we should have at our disposal. That's what generates interest from non-hardcore alumni and current students. 3/4 of the people I know that root for Penn State (I live in a hot bed of those types of people) didn't go there or have any real connection to them other than they like the school and their tradition. At the Maryland game, which I attended in person, it was a sad environment (in my opinion) for a home opener for a "Big Time Conference" Team. Students were gone after halftime, stands were maybe 1/4 full at kickoff. It did fill in but then went down after halftime. By my count, there are 39 bowl games (not including the championship playoff semi-final and final), meaning 78 teams make it to a bowl out of 131 possible teams. Doesn't seem like a stretch to compete for that annually. I don't think that is a stretch or a pie in the sky dream. What Lance was building was a consistent winner with solid trench play and a reasonable roster turn that had graduates and some transfers, but the next group waiting in the wings. I don't think we have that now. Our secondary and WR core after this season will be right back to square one for the most part. I really want these guys to win and want the staff to succeed, but the regressions at the end of last season and so far this season have been hard to stomach.
  14. What a shame and potential waste of talent and opportunity.
  15. I'll advised timeout in my opinion. 3rd and 17, don't give them any more time to think about it.
  16. I'm don't hear anyone laughing at the moment.
  17. A shame, they have been playing well. Much better than I expected. Hopefully they can turn this around.
  18. He rose thru the ranks very quickly. Perhaps he didn't get all of the fundamentals down that would have helped him educate the young players. Being a good or great player doesn't always mean you will be a good/great coach. I still like his passion, his recruiting seems to be at a high level. Now we need the execution and in-game play calling to get up with those things. I'm glass is half full so I still want to support him and the team. LL had a rocky road too and I try to keep that in mind. Unfortunately, my personal expectation (based on the Rosy Bull glasses I wear ๐Ÿ˜Š) may not have been where they should! Go Bulls!!
  19. Glad she is staying in the area. It is a good first step for her. Seems like she could be a very good coach. She was a vocal leader even when she wasn't able to play. Best of luck to her!
  20. Need the D to figure things out. If you score 31, you should win.
  21. I would like to see Mangas and the TEs a little more involved over the middle. should help free up the run game and the WRs. Also, Cook on some more screen passes would be a good compliment too. I think our general offense has been a bit predictable, which makes it hard for the QB to look efficient. Should have 3-4 options on every play. Not sure if they are there and he's not utilizing 2, 3 or 4 much yet or that are calling a play and trying to make it work. I like him so far, just needs a little more consistency and help with the play calling so his % goes up. No shame in 5-6 yard pass plays from time to time, especially on 1st down.
  22. I considered flying down. I saw them at MD, thought I saw some good flashes. HC made me reconsider the trip. I will watch on TV and hope for the best. The offense has shown promise. Not sure where the hate for Snyder is coming from, heโ€™s not perfect but certainly is not our main issue by any means. The defense, which I thought would be our best component is just not there yet. A converted lacrosse player turned QB completely decimated them and they never had any answers. Hoping for a bounce back. CC certainly had their hands full last week against someone they were supposed to walk over. Go Bulls!!
  23. But for some reason we now have CBSSports game on 9/24
  24. I think it was a huge factor. We had a solid team (on paper), with lots of experience. We underperformed. Note though that JWs best game was again Michigan. He got up for that one.
