I don't think the pass rush was terrible we just can't rough ridin' tackle

But it isn't exactly great either, it's just inconsistent.

The big issue is that they can't tackle in the backfield, like you said.  Why is that?  Is it because of either coaching or player athleticism?
I'm gonna go with lack of athleticism. Jordan Willis and Meshak Williams were able to get close enough to get a hand on the QB. And when they got a hand on the QB, he went down. This year we get close but our guys can't hold on for dear life or are too slow to adjust to the QB's lateral movement.

That's strength, not athleticism. Meshak and Jordan were very skrong.
Were they not athletic? Strength is absolutely a component of overall athleticism. Doesn't change my assessment.

Sure, absolutely; but the problem yesterday wasn't getting to Grier, it was getting him down when they got hands on him.

walkers was simple lack of wrapping up which I tend to blame on coaches but he hit him so hard he probably assumed he went down

If you've ever cried for 3 days because a cfb coach retired, you might be too invested, IMO. I love the cats, but i can assure you I will never shed tears over it.

I probably will but I'm not too invested. LHC LHC Bill Snyder football became a thing for me when I was 18 years old. I'm now 41 with two kids who have had season tickets since they were in utero. My youngest looks for Bill when he comes onto the field, not Willie. That's the thing about Bill, my story is far from unique.

Same. In the fall, my facebook memories thing is me and my sons at games every week during Snyder 2.0. And celebrations of great wins in 11 and 12 and a few others in other seasons.

Kstate football is the tie that binds for my family, and Snyder is a huge part of that.  So many happy memories.  From my grandparents to my kids.

When he hangs it up, it will be very hard for me.  I’ve got tics for the whole family in two weeks, just in case that is it.

My family plans our family get-togethers (like my entire family flies/drives from all over the US) around the KSU bowl game and have since the 97 Cotton Bowl.  So many great memories.  It's probably the reason i bristle so much when this topic comes up.  Yes i can see the writing on the wall.....no I am not happy about it.  It will give me no joy to see him hang it up.

Is this from Duke referring to transferring?
?s=17


Are they wanting to transfer due to the coaches or the fact that our dogshit offense can only score 3 points on four turnovers?

I wouldn't worry about a starter transferring before his senior year.

Duke just saved 15% or more on his car insurance by switching to GEICO

Maybe Duke is just tired of playing like it's 1989?

Also, announcing it with 2 games and a potential bowl yet to go

Oh my God! I seriously cannot think of something more damming to say about a coaching staff. College football offenses have evolved at least three times since then.

I have not watched the WVU game as of yet.  It is sitting their on my DVR, just waiting for me.  I don't know if I can bear to watch it without losing my ever-loving-S.

Should I watch it, or would it be best not to do so and pretend it never happended?

Almost half of our possessions started in WVU territory. Six points  :blindfold:

I'm not watching it either.  Heard all I needed from my son who was there.  He's a senior in high school and he can't believe some of the stuff this coaching staff does..... :ROFL:

I've been shocked by the amount of touches Meathook has been given this season. He's got 14 carries and just 5 receptions. I'm assuming he's got some sort of nagging shoulder injury. Can't imagine him wearing that weird brace if he was healthy. There have been times this season where I felt like Dana was deterred by some of the nepotism remarks... and then the GD fullback screen happens :facepalm:
