Re: National Chaos

Democratic (or Republican) talking points aren't fixing the problem nor do they want to. The rich don't have enough and can't generate enough money to fix this. Take 100% of the defense budget and you stopgap the deficit but don't touch debt and incumbered funds with ss and medicare. Democrats and R...

Re: What team is successful with NO rushing attack?

If you can pull it off, physical teams that line up and smack you while having a competant to good passing attack are by far the hardest teams to stop. A strong rushing game is a hallmark of many of the great teams. My theory is that college has evolved because 2 of the hardest defensive positions t...

Re: National Chaos

From Bush to Obama to Trump and Biden, all bet on low interest rates to justify debt. If projections are wrong and interst rises quickly, we're screwed. We're now with Italy, Japan, and Greece with borrowing over 100% GDP. Consider SS and Medicaire, we're on track to be 200%+ GDP :o The budget scena...

Re: National Chaos

The media and our politicians have successfully radicalized the population. It's astonishing. They've successfully pitted millions against each other and galvanized their viewpoints to 1 of 2 ideologies. This thread is a perfect example. The media and our politicians have successfully sold the philo...

Re: National Chaos

If you think the national chaos is a result of one event, 1 month, or even 6 months, you are part of the problem. If you think the national chaos is the fault of 1 party, you are part of the problem. Term limits, abolishing the parties, a loser pays system in lawsuits, more simplified flat taxes wou...

Re: Revamp Offense?

I agree that there are some issues in pass blocking that can be worked out. We know we're going to face a loaded box and that we're unlikely to have much of a vertical threat. Still, we have a lot of 1-1 matchups on the outside and against TEs. I wonder if they are working on routes and techniques t...

National Chaos

If you cling to one party or the other and lay blame at the feet of one party or the other, YOU are the problem.

This is getting ridiculous and I wonder how far it ends up going?

Revamp Offense?

Please do not let this devolve into Bohl/Vigen bashing. We all have said our our spill about that and I doubt there are many stones left unturned in that discussion. Looking forward to 2021, we obviously have a new O-line coach but I haven't heard of any other coaching changes (I could certainly hav...

Re: Miller Poached by Illinois

Poached? Are we certain that's the case? I'm wondering if we'll see a few more positional coaches poached? Except QB coach, of course. Yes we are sure he was poached to reunite with Bielema. https://www.si.com/college/illinois/football/bart-miller-hired-as-illini-offensive-line-coach As much as we ...

Re: Hoooray San Jose

Sucks for SJSU; they look legit. I feel bad for them that their good season happened this season. They certainly may sustain success, but for kids on teams like that, I feel bad for them. Some of those kids endured 2-4 years of A$$ kickings and now finally had the team to win but was during this COV...

You think BSU is gone?

The bsu and aac chatter has been pretty consistent. I'm pretty certain they won't be in the MWC much longer. Other than further weakening an already terrible MWC, I don't think it has too much of a fallout. Yeah, a few talking heads raving about crap and a reduction in already relatively small TV mo...

Re: Transfer Thread

Solomon Byrd likes/tweets give the indication that wants to see a change on offense. Not sure what that means for his future. Anyone that thinks Vigen's piss poor performance only effects the offensive side of the ball, needs to think again. I've heard through the grapevine that the defense is PISS...

Transfer Thread

Looks like Cameron Smith is gone. Not too surprising.

Maybe old news, but I'm sure there will be more transfer news in the future. This thread is to keep up with that.

Re: Josh Allen and the Bills

I haven't watched much NFL, but I did catch a game or two of Josh's. So happy for him and finally getting his mechanics down. All debates aside about accuracy and whatever else, the kid is just so passionate and LOVES the game. Fun to watch and should have a great career. I also really like the Ale...

Quotes that stuck out to me:

There are some on this board that need to hear that.

Re: Craig Bohl end of season press conference....

I thought it was interesting that he again brought up "what we can do". I'm wondering if that is referencing bad play calls from the perspective of playing to your weaknesses or if it could be referencing an overly complex system? Either way, I thought that was interesting. I did feel like...
