Re: Army Game Thread

I'm really sick of people who watched 4 years of what CJ did to this program and yet still believe it can be completely turned around in 15 games. Can you imagine what we would have looked like Saturday if CJ and Eric Price were still in charge? We'd have been looking at 77-0 or worse, no offense w...

Re: Things I hope for next week...

I hope certain people open their eyes and see that Army is better than Navy at this juncture. It's been a long time since anyone could say that and be taken seriously. This is not your Army team of the last 20-30 years. It's much better, and after a beating at Ohio State, much like we took at OU (th...

Re: Tanner Lee

Well, my assessment of Lee hasn't changed despite the change in scenery and upgrade in overall offensive help: he throws a pretty ball, but the nuances of quarterbacking is something that he probably will not master. He's similar to JP Losman in that both can spin the ball, but the other intangible...

Re: Oklahoma GameDay Thread

I'll be disappointed if we fall apart late in the game like we did in some of our games at Duke and GaTech over the last few years. We've acquitted ourselves well to this point, but if the score gets ridiculous it means nothing to the public perception of the progam.

Keep it up, boys.

Re: Oklahoma GameDay Thread

Anyone who thinks we have the worst offensive line in D1 please pay attention to this game. This is one of the best teams in the nation, and we're not just scheming them, we're opening holes, zone blocking and doing what we have to do.

Re: Tanner Lee

In his college career, Tanner now has an equal number of TD's and INTs (unless I'm off one and he has one more INT than TD.) And there were at least 3 or 4 passes that were dropped by NIU defenders, two of which couldn't have hit the NIU player any more squarely in the hands. Until he learns to stop...

Re: Tanner Lee

No doubt, Robert. His first possession of 2nd half he threw an ill advised pass on 3rd and 7 that would have been an easy pick had it not been just out of bounds. Yes, he was hit on the play, but he wound up with a big delivery and tried to force something that wasn't there. The ball is NOT quick ou...

Re: Tanner Lee

Northern Illinois is not a bad team. Tanner looks good on some playes, horrible on others. He holds the ball too long, throws late and puts his receivers in bad situations as a result. I didn't see the first two pick 6's, but he also got sacked, stripped and almost had the fumble returned for a TD o...

Re: Revised 2017 American football schedules

UMass is the loser in all of this. Unless I'm reading it wrong, they lose a game this year, so the AAC can have their full conference slate. I think UMass is lobbying to get invited into the conference. It would be great for UConn to have UMass in the conference. They were once serious rivals in the...

Re: Navy 23 - Tulane 21

I agree, but I also think that Fritz, if he had the right players in place, would much rather have a split that approaches 50/50. One of his years at Sam Houston State his offense was very close to 50/50 and they went to the FCS championship game.

Now tied with Northeastern? When I was applying to colleges, Northeastern was a big time fall back school with nowhere near the reputation of Tulane. Times change.
