The number of mental errors has been extremely disappointing. This staff is supposed to be strong on discipline and fundamentals. It needs to show itself ASAP.

Despite WF saying Memphis is a top 20 team they don't have a single vote for the top 25 at this point in time. No excuses.

+1000. And the team plays with little emotion or energy--go through the motions until the clock expires.

Tonight the goofy guy in Westfeldt on the 50 yard line, third row, in the rain, sitting alone after everyone else has left in the 3rd qtr,....sitting with his 8 year old grandson who would rather be with his father watching Ms State..... well, that would be me. I've already told him that we don't do cowbells here. He seemed a bit disappointed. I did get him to go to a basketball game once. He didn't like having his picture taken with the cheerleaders. Said they smelled yucky....like flowers.

Lightning delay possible. Stadium was cleared on the last strike.

One play, 47 yards, Memphis TD. And some genius said we don't need to play keep the ball away from Memphis' offense.

Nice drive to start the game, and I won't fault the coaching staff for trying the onside kick. If it worked, they're brilliant, it didn't, nice try.

Nice run on 4th down. Not to be a downer, but how crappy is Memphis defense? Whatever it takes to win!!! Don’t get sloppy!

As I said all week, we can run all day on Memphis, and make them stop the run, which will open up the passing game.

Our coaches need to realize that Huff is eating up #50, and leave a back in to chip on him.

Stupid play call. Should have been a QB sneak while on the goal line. Just stupid

Who would have guessed? Control the ball, win time of possession, and keep the explosive Memphis offense off the field and we have a lead at halftime. Run the ball down their throats, and sprinkle in the pass (though more bad things have happened in the passing game such as sacks and dropped passes) but control the clock has been key.

Could have run 2 QB sneaks or 2 quick openers and used both TOs if he doesn’t get in and kick FG. Went to the locker room with with a TO unused. Terrible coaching.

I think we took a timeout on the play that was reviewed and we only had one left, according to the announcers.

Banks is playing BY FAR his best game of the year. He's been very accurate with his throws. The one that Mooney dropped in traffic was as accurate as possible, and it looked like Mooney was a step clear of the scrum, he might have taken it to the house. We're running the ball and Memphis cannot stop the run. Huff is a beast, we NEED to account for him on every play, if need be keep a back in to help out when we're trying to pass.

We have 189 yards rushing in the first half on 29 carries, 6.5 yards a carry. Banks is 8/12 for 92 yards.

We are really moving the ball on these guys. The best defense is controlling the ball on offense.

We all questioned the Memphis defense, we were right. :D

Unbelievably bad play call in fourth and four. Fritz and his offensive staff just aren’t very good on critical play calls.

Banks just can’t consistently make the right reads in the RPO.

How can you hold on receiving a punt? Need to score on this drive.

Banks had a great first half but is starting slow for the 2nd half. And, the play selection is atrocious for the second half which is on the OC.
