Oath Before Orders
Penn State's a first half team, Nebraska a second.
Maybe no truer statement given the two team's years so far.
This team is taking years off of my life this year.
We are being manhandled. The kids are playing hard. PSU is controlling this game and allowing us to meltdown. Penalties, bad special teams, turnovers, players revolting against Bo.
Josh Mitchell completely ignored Bo when he was yelling at him on the sideline. Might have something to do with Bo's treatment of Bell & kicking him off the team...?
It's good to be the King.
Look, you can keep doing this and expect to win. Maybe we come back, maybe we don't. But fact remains, you can't survive week on week out having to come back from double digits in the second half.
Offense needs to have Johnny football Manziel. What a stud that kid is.
Maybe Johnny Stanton can duplicate him?
If we score on the opening drive of the first half I am going to need high blood pressure pills.
Feed me to the wolves, and I will return leader of the pack. #FreeDA
The cynic in me sort of has this sick hope that we'll lose out in embarrassing fashion which would cost Bo his job. The Lakers realized Mike Brown wasn't their man when they kept doing the same things wrong over and over, now its our turn.
We might be a second half team but that's because we're shooting ourselves in the foot the same way every time multiple times a season. Unacceptable.
This don't make me feel better right now. The level of confusion on D is crazy.
I don't think Taylor is the problem right now.
We knew our D wasn't very good. But our Offense has been much more disapppointing this game.
FTR. My dad hates beck. And says we need a new OC.
Also Ftr. He loves Tmart.
Well, I'd like to say easy adjustments this time around at halftime..., but I can't.
Penn State is giving up the absolute middle of their defense with their splits between their DTs on most downs. They aren't going to allow us to run the ball outside. Their OLB's are also split wide to complete that look.
Unless we have an adjustment to run the football up the gut, we have no adjustment. They absolutely know we are weak from Guard-to-Guard and are taking supreme advantage of that right now.
Can we line up in the I, with an actual FB that can thump some people running behind our Guards and Centers is the real question. I don't think we can.
With all that said, that means we need to utilize combination passing routes. Routes in which we can get the particular matchups that we want. PSU is going to give us flat zone all game and absolutely dare us to run the ball over our Guards and Centers.
Defensively? It isn't as bad as it looks, but it isn't good. We are missing assignments like usual, but we are also adept to an inside run game if anybody ever would take the time to do it. Penn State can come back to that later in the game.
We have to get after McGloin. I don't want to blitz these guys, but down by 11 you are almost forced to do so.
Not time to panic, but damn, we have a lot of things to shore up and I haven't even talked about Special Teams...
Where did I say he was? I was simply saying I believe Manziel is an absolute gamer.
P.s. TM isn't doing anything either. Our whole offense has sucked. Him included.
PSU knows what Bo wants to do on D, and they are not allowing him to make adjustments and reads to do it. Also knows we can't get to the QB if he does 3 step drops.
We are going to have to let the tricks out of the bag to get some big plays going here and make something happen right away.
If we don't put up 7 points to start the half and they do, this is going to be ugly UGLY UGLY!!!
"In the deed, the glory"
Sorry. Bo won those last 3 games he isn't going anywhere. No matter how bad we lose.
So you are saying we are being outcoached? ;)
Most certainly not. Oline play and D are out two main detractors today.
Agreed and we better hope Michigan loses to the Buckeyes
Saying we need a different QB is the same thing.
oh, I know. It was a total pipe dream.
I still think/hope we can pull this out.
I'm good at liking crappy teams anyway because I'm a Royals fan.
