  1. Louisiana Lafayette, Louisiana Monroe, and Louisiana Tech better be scrambling to report transgressions of the others because the hammer is coming and coming soon.
  2. By year 4 who recruited those players? Who coached those players? Who was supposed to develop those players? QB was but a part of it. Also this isn't about not beating Ohio State this was not beating Rutgers, getting owned by CSEwe archrival Minnesota in your own stadium. 11-2 then 8-5 then 7-6 then 5-7. A whole lot more was going wrong than just the QB and the constant regression is a warning sign. Things were getting worse and look up the student er activity towards the end of 2014. Yeah of course this does not mean Hoke is going to necessarily fail as a coach at SDSU, I just don't see him as a proven commodity.
  3. Hey we knew the MBB team was going to be rough so we acted in a prudent manner and proceeded to set the Arizona Bowl record for beer sales. Didn't stop there so we are still a bit hungover, should start to sober up a little on signing day and when spring practice starts.
  4. I wouldn't call Hoke a proven commodity. You give him Michigan resources and he loses to Rutgers. Yeah he had a great first year, then things got progressively worse every single season after that. Maybe he learned or maybe SDSU will be a better fit, but proven eh....
  5. I am also going to put this out there, ESPN marketing efforts for the MWC makes a sloth look like a highly caffeinated squirrel. They did diddly-squat. I am thinking and hoping that Fox and CBS (especially for the OTA games) don't repeat that mistake. A little bit of marketing can go a long way and I think if you do a cost vs rating there is a path to greater profit for the costs.
  6. Yeah and one isn't paying attention if they think Bohl is happy with where the passing game was this year. Difference is how people think you fix it.
  7. Meh, I remember being that excited while watching Mizzou's bowl game from their 2008 season. Then, well, let's just say I am glad DC is long gone. Different roster, different staff, apples and hamburgers.
  8. Well front range mountain schools took care of business. Lets go Nevada lets finish this bowl season with a victory. 5-2 for bowl season would be a solid finish. Also Washington who has loads of talent but mucked up their conference season resulting in a pedestrian 7-5 looking record coached by the coach who knows Boise St better than anyone is about the worst draw Boise could have gotten.
  9. Wish nothing but the best for him in the future. A lot of guys would have transferred, but he stuck out this season and was great support for the team. Class act all the way. Nah, db's don't make you have soft hands. That one grab by Rocket Junior was sweet.
  10. Wyoming wins 38-17, and that my friends is how you manage MWCBoard juju.
  11. Well folks SEC Mountain is confirmed. 4th Place Mtn Division>3rd Place SEC East Division. Realignment here we come! Edit, nice game for the Pokes. Spring ball is going to be interesting. Go Pokes!!!
  12. I dunno the top ranked scoring defense UCF faced was Cinci at 30 who held you guys to 24. Utah (13.2 avg pts) is significantly better on D than Cinci (21.7). I would expect UCF to get 7-14 against Utah. Unfortunately we won't know because the bowl selection committee/bowl contracts made some horrific matchups so we get to watch 10 win ND completely wax a 7 win Iowa State, a 9 win SDSU take out an overmatched CMU, and 10 win Utah is going to beat Texas. Too bad we couldn't have seen SDSU vs UCF that would have been an interesting one.
  13. You need to be at least competitive otherwise the value is less than sand in a desert. How many big names do programs like Illinois, Mississippi State, Kansas play each year yet none of them are nationally relevant in football. Being a whipping boy is no way of achieving relevancy. Which team between 1984 and the 2020 BYU team is going to be more nationally relevant? Now look at the schedule. Winning, that is what matters and better to have a few games (1-3) against other nationally relevant teams and win than more (7-9) and lose a bunch.
  14. Good game Air Force and congrats on the season. As for this game I remember thinking man Leach take the points, but hey I guess TOP doesn't matter, Leach played right into AFA's game.
