    We just are not good right now. Some really poor injury luck combined with poor play on the field in general. We got a .500 team on our hands

    Unreal ending to FSU game. They lost on a 59 yard pass play with no time left.

    “Well, maybe FSU is a lot better than anyone expected and maybe Toledo wins the MAC. Now to take a big sip of coffee and prep for 5 ranked teams the next 6 weeks before checking on the FSU score tonight…”

    The OL play is horrifically bad. Not just any one player, but the entire line. I don't know what we do to fix this. The whole line is an absolute disaster. We are an 8 win team right now.

    Edit: Fire Jeff Quinn. Yesterday.

    Def Wisconsin's. They had a pretty easy opponent today, defense held them to 92 yards and like 1 first down, offense gave up more points and yards than our defense did and everyone of our RBs looked good, but not great. We ran it down Eastern Michigan's throat, and in the process gave Mertz next to no time to throw and prepare on field for ND in two weeks.

    Our defense, yet again, will be top tier and one of the best in the nation. A good handful of our best defensive players have been out, too.

    Our offense, outside of the RBs, leaves a lot to be desired. Coan will receive a lot of pressure - it likely comes down to which QB sucks less.

    He took one really bad run for a loss on an RPO. Granted, it was a pretty good tackle in space and he probably picks up a chunk of yards if he breaks it. But he got sat for a few drives after that.

    I’m an idiot my friend. I’ve just had so much bad shit happen CFB is my only happiness so I’m trying to stay upbeat. Also, our schedule sucks ass so there will be a lot of games that go this way and coin flip wins or losses. Win enough to keep the class together but not so much ND sniffs the playoffs.

    Is Tommy also the QB coach? We should bring someone on staff next year that fits Buchner’s skillset. Like a Mariota (obviously he’s rostered but someone similar)

    hiring Kaepernick as a QB coach would be a pretty big PR move for sure

    104th in rushing defense is just incredible considering our DL and LB. Truly, what the hell is Freeman doing?

    Sacks allowed, rushing defense, and rushing offense have to be the worst 3 stats to be categorized as alarming for a football team

    There is a tough 5 game schedule coming. 6 with this team since they can’t run or stop the run. Two or three losses and give the reins to Buchner and prep for next year.

    Now that I rewatched the game and had time to cool off and look at the game without too much emotion I would like to say that Jeff Quinn needs to be fired into the fucking sun like yesterday.

    this is what should’ve been done after the Michigan game in 2019

    I just want 10 wins for recruiting. So I rewatched this morning. This is really a prime 2013-2014 bk team - I do think that the oline gets it together more than they did. A lot of it was effort and terrible pre-snap calls. This is 8-4 with a punchers chance for 10 wins and 6-6 is not off the table.

    silver linings
    - we will keep freemen’s for another year at least and at a minimum he is going to fill the roster with dudes.
    - Kelly does try to scheme around the holes in his teams - I think the silence from Pete’s question “is there more improvement than you thought needed for this team” means he is caught off guard. Hoping we see adjustments across the board to protect the oline.

    - we probably keep 1-2 of the senior wrs if we end up 9-3

    - lots of young guys will get snaps

    - Buchner looks good

    I don’t trust that we keep any wide receivers anymore, the wr room seems toxic. This is not normal.
