So true sir That in itself is heartbreakingI remember reading about the teams and era that were awful pre-Devaney and I felt bad for those folks.
Now I/we’ve been living it.
The good news is that it barely hurts anymore.
And if this keeps up it won’t hurt at all.
The negative things I see happening during the game are things that can be cleaned up at practices. However, with mistakes in the game comes consequences. Screw up in a game? Miss a critical block? Muff a punt? Drop a pass? Fumble the ball? Make bad decisions? All mean bench time at this point in the season. Surely there are kids who can get on the field and produce positive results. I would be giving some other players the opportunity to show what they can do.I really feel like there is no FEAR anymore.
Fear that if I make a 7th grade snap, that my helmet will be taken away for the rest of the week.
Fear that if I miss simple block I get to sit next to the water cooler for a while.
Fear is a great motivator!
How many catches by receivers today? Wandale doesn't count.
How many times did Iowa get 3 or 4 more yards per play.
3rd and 11 in the first series and give up 18yds.
2 and 21 i think and they get a dpi for first down.
When does this crap ever stop?
Man i was messing around is allPops, I like your posts, but I am not buying what you are selling here. I realize you are stating your opinion/hope, but mine is about 180 degrees from yours. This is not a good football team and to me they are not showing any promise. How I wish I am wrong.
