Did you guys watch DH's post-game? He was PISSED about it. He says it is "on him" and Grier running the ball from the 1 on 2nd and goal will be fixed. He pointed to a few things and insisted they will get fixed. I know we've heard it before...only time will tell. At least he got the PISSED part right.

Chuggs is not good. OL is not good.
Nah,nah,nah,nah...goodbye.
Oh well boys...let's hope Will makes it back next week or we have no chance (slim chances with him).

Dare we hope that was a gamechanger play?

Heads down on the sideline...they know what the dropoff in talent is at QB. We've got a razor thin edge to play mistake free (that hold was inexcusable - the pulling guard tackled his kickout man who was burying up to avoid him 5 yards behind the ball). We can't recover from penalties and mistakes anymore...and Kinney boots it into the endzone...

Schuler is getting thrown around and is actually getting in the way of other defenders.

I don't think some of you realize how unfair an evaluation you are giving Grier. SkyHo had better receivers who had better speed and agility - they just didn't feel like blocking much. Remember, wr have to get open or at least get separation. I'm pretty sure Grier is looking over 3-4 reads on most plays and finding few open places to go with the ball. So yes, he is forcing some into places he shouldn't - and we've scored on at least 3 balls that shouldn't have been thrown.
Yes, there were drops during SkyHo's tenure as well...but they were mixed in with lots of passes that were 2-8 yards off the mark that his wr worked to get hands on. Most of the drops for Grier have been between the top of their head and their knees and he's stuck it in the only place he could. Sills has been his favorite because he shows that he is gonna do everything he can to make the catch...until he didn't against TCU. I swear, sometimes I think the look is his eyes is,"WTF did I get myself in to? They drop everything."

And that is a scary thing to see in your QBs eyes.

I think some of you are right. I think he misses his old line and wr at Florida - until McElwain screwed them all up.

I didn't say he was not a leader. I said I don't see him as a great leader. He has talents that Howard doesnt poses. However, I have yet to see him have the offense rally around him like Howard was able to do. Something is missing in that aspect, and our offense plays like crap when it happens, or doesnt happen. Maybe it is more of an inconsistency.


Skyler Howard played on teams that had (arguably) more firepower. A "C" QB on a "B+" offense if you will. Will Grier does not have that luxury.
Crawford, McKoy and Pettaway are very good backs who have figured out over 8 weeks that the running is tough against good teams. I think a big part of Crawford's reduced production is the beating he has taken.
David Sills is a creation made by Will Grier - he is a good possession wr but belongs in the slot. Period - NOT ENOUGH SPEED.
Ditto White and Jennings.
Simms, our one elite speed guy can't find motivation to try all game.
Did you not see all of the shots of how frustrated Grier became today? He's figured out what he's working with...a decent but not great offense. Skyler Howard would've blown 5 head gaskets by now and flipped off everyone on offense and chaos would abound in Morgantown. He was a basketcase. How many times did you see Orlosky go nose-to-nose with him to shut him up? Rally around him? They hated him but he was all we had...

I believe OSU is better than TCU.
They must've come up big against them.
TCU is in the drivers seat but OU or OSU will take them down and things will be right back to where everyone thought it was at the start of the year.

Disappointed and feel like we got exposed a little but we are a young team with a bright future. Hate that we all got excited and lost sight of this being a "rebuild" type year with everyone we lost. It still sucks that Vegas may be right and our over/under for wins is 7.

We need speed. Speed at WR, speed at DB...especially.

Still a bad choice...that was covered...he threw it up anyway and hoped. We can't rely on that against good teams. We are a year away from being REALLY good. Let's hope everyone stays. But we're not there yet.

Back to 20. Bad choice by Will...he talking to himself out there...bitching...frustrated.
No, it's not all on him but right now, he's become a big part of the problem. He's frustrated and how many of his last 10 passes were bad decisions? You can't always have a lucky horseshoe in your back pocket and have it work out.

Will has had a bad game. He needs to turn things around now. Right now.

At least they are showing life. This team was dead 15 minutes ago. Offense is getting closer...

Rough half. With our defensive personnel (and injuries) we can either stop the run OR the pass. Tony has had to start guessing.

Our offense has been out of sync but is showing signs of life.

Let's get this kickoff and score then shoot it out with them.

It's taken Dana a while to round into what I would call a good Head Coach. He had a lot of holes in his game (clock management, being so tricky he was always calling poor plays).

The same can be said about Spav. He is still learning. Hell, he pulled out what Baylor was doing against us because, "That looked pretty good". He hasn't even seen the weather for our final home game yet (wind/sleet/snow - it's Morgantown).

Gibby isn't the "mad genius" that some of you think he is. Remember, Jeff Casteel was over him and taught him - and we got to where everyone trashed Casteel. Gibby is good at hiding weak spots using pressure - gambling. Can he learn to run a solid defense full of playmakers? He didn't do as well as we hoped last year - still gambling.

We had some letdowns on defense...did anybody notice that Preston was in perfect position on the the PI play but chose to peel off and deck the WR since he wasn't sure what to do? We had some dropped balls...Simms(2), White (1), Seals (1).

I hope, from Dana's tone at the presser last night, that he see this clearly and lights a fire under some people to focus on what we need to do...Coaches too. The future could be bright...we just have to make it that way...or, keep screwing off and be mediocre. Our team works hard, but when it's on the wrong things - we don't improve.
