    Just boot it out of the end zone and play defense for one play. It ends up being 75 yards instead of potentially 65. And a wild, wacky return TD against an unstructured kickoff coverage set is way higher likelihood than giving up 75 yards against a structured defense.

    Granted, the likelihood of touchdown is so low in all scenarios here, but you’re certainly not playing the odds by squibbing it.

    I’m actually frustrated with Marcus here. You want to be the best? Win regardless of circumstance. We need to stop complaining about night games. They’re a privilege, not a burden.

    I think he’s kind of kidding. But 4 night games in a row would never happen in a conference…

    Again, we signed up for that.

    Our fanbase and program need to stop complaining about night games. They’re part of the independent equation. And considering the position we’re in where we need as many high-profile games as possible to impress voters and decision makers, it’s actually a blessing we’re getting prime time ABC again instead of some noon game nobody watches.

    “Great. We need the additional exposure now as a 1 loss team and this provides that.”

    Even if you don’t believe it, showing the frustration alone just sends an awful message to players and fans alike.

    It’s got to be a logistical nightmare and extra burden especially when on the road.

    It absolutely is. I get the complaints.

    But for the position our program is currently in, the pros actually outweighs the cons. And even if they don’t, showing frustration publicly doesn’t help anyone. Either show nothing at all or push the positive narrative and move on.

    I’m annoyed how emotionally invested I allowed myself to get again. 2016 really put me in a great place. I wasn’t even bummed that much about Georgia 2017 when I was at the game.

    I also have noticed how the bama thread looks exactly like ours despite the crazy amount of success they have had.
    Makes me feel like it’s a lot like why I quit mid stakes poker even though I was a winning player - the losses were more exciting than the wins.

    going to try to focus on the positives only and not the negatives so it’s all hopefully more enjoyable.

    That is some skill talent we haven’t seen in a while.

    seems like next year we have a big hole at qb and lb hopefully the portal can help but they are getting to truest reload territory at a level we haven’t seen since 2017-2018 transition but a lot more sustainable this time.

    Get a portal QB and maybe a tackle.

    Get some help at LB and DL in the portal.

    Run it back.

    Our schedule next year also sets up extremely nicely.

    FSU and USC are two of the last three. Assuming we don’t fuck up the QB decision, we should be undefeated headed into those.

    FSU at night at home in November is a god send, especially if it’s not Jordan Travis at QB.

    I still don’t know what to make of this years team tbh. Watching them live. On offense it just looked so vanilla -and it should have worked. I don’t think that the tressle ball grind put a 10 point win is really the formula that is going to work long term so I am hoping we see some more shorts.

    on defense they looked fine. Corners are absolute studs. The rest are generally doing their job

    It was frankly embarrassing to watch him get pulled onto the field Weekend at Bernie’s style for the game. I understand he doesn’t have much time for many return trips, but let’s hold off on any more public appearances

    Ii podcast is great today. Someone is getting fired over the last two plays. When they break it down we stayed in nickel after osu subbed for their big back. Almost as bad as 10 men.

    Night games rule. Mostly because they are much more convenient for me personally. But when the two most discussed topics in the sport right now are NIL and tv ratings forcing conference realignment, I would think you'd want to be in prime time as often as possible. I feel bad for Wicket and no one else.

    It also really hurt me personally because my whole family went to Ohio State, best friend went to Ohio State, etc.

    My parents always liked ND, but being Buckeyes they never really wanted me to go anywhere else and didn't really fathom why I would go anywhere else. My older sister was down to Northwestern and Ohio State and they convinced her to go to Ohio State when she really wanted to go to NW. She's turned out fine and works at Google, so they always use it as an example of how I should have just went to OSU instead of taking out loans to go to ND. Their deal was they would give me as much to go to college as they gave her, and she got a half-scholarship at in-state rates to go to OSU so you can do the math on the loans I took out to go to ND.

    So, while I never really hate OSU or anything, every time its ND vs. OSU it feels super personal with my whole family and best friends against me. I didn't think we were going to win, but they convinced me when it came down to the 3rd and 19. Just a massive ending and felt, to quote prime time, "personal" in us not winning. And it sunk in we aren't going to have another shot for a long time

    That was my point yesterday. It’s close. They’re not playing big games scared or not to get blown out. They look like they belong. This stuff can be fixed in the portal and not needing 3 safeties or senior WR who aren’t good.

    Just crumbled in the moment. To be fair to Marcus, that is the first time he has ever been in that position as a head coach and you have to imagine he will be ready next time. We all knew Marcus wasn’t being hired for his gameday coaching skills.
