I'll keep this short.
I'd actually want Tracy, Sawvel, and Mike Sherels to stay with us in a coaching change. They are better than average coaches, and they're a good fit for our state and program.
No chance this happens.
But I can dream, right?
Nobody has been harder on Limegrover than me. From day one I've been negative.
But he's done something interesting over the course of this year. He decided to cut his losses and find a style that fit his players.
The result is an offense that now revolves almost entirely around the...
He takes a hand off, bounces it for nine, and comes to a full stop before being pushed out of bounds.
Because this bad a$$ wants to dish. And he does.
Be still my heart.
I want his style and identity to lead our team next year.
I've never seen a team take the play clock all the way down on every series of the game. Today it worked brilliantly. It was like watching football being played in 1894.
SJSU was out-coached in every facet of the game (their kickoff team? barf!).
I knew we had a shot when they were...
1) Western Illinois stood no chance on any play in which Rashede Hageman decided to expend effort.
2) David Cobb clearly moves ahead of Roderick and deserves to start next week if Kirkwood is not ready.
He is a Gary Fischer with a headset, a Hannibal with a clipboard, and a Leonard Berstein with a whistle.
Our very own offensive genius/guru/maestro.
Words fail to capture his visionary genius.
In other news, I can't watch another year with him in the box.
Recognizing a young man has made a needlessly horrible, horrible decision, he graciously provides a way for AJ earn his way back on to the Spring roster.
Could make for nice copy. And it's the kind of lesson that football is designed to impart.
Somebody would need to whisper in AJ's ear...
It's Senior Day for the best football player on our team the last 3 seasons.
He should touch the ball a minimum of 15 times.
I'd like to see him rush 15 times and have the ball thrown to him at least 5 times.
Find a way to make the game go through him. Let him put the team on his shoulders...
Why Nelson started:
(1) He's the only QB who can run Kill's offense.
(2) Kill thought it was unreasonable to wait until year three to play the way he wants to play.
(3) While we could've put another QB out there yesterday, Kill figured Nelson's RS would be burned inevitably.
What this means...
If the facts stand as they are presently stated--and the University stands to lose almost a million dollars to get out of an away football game--somebody deserves to lose their job.
Such a reckless misuse of university funds is indefensible and offensive.
If the dollar amounts are different...
