Having gone to ISu football games for more than 50 years I find that any discussion of what could have been and how the team did this or the coach did this to be almost laughable. I think that for most of my life when we played teams in the top 25 we just planed on loosing by 40 points. Maybe we are not winning as many as we like( I am sure the coaches and the players would agree with that) but be glad that the program is going in the right direction and think about how many people would have been at the game Friday 5 years ago. With the cold weather we would have been amazed to see 30000 people there.
Total defense is an irrelevant stat. Giving up yards doesn't lose football games. Scoring defense is the only way defenses should be compared
BS. When the defense refuses to get itself off the field, you give your offense terrible field position and a horrible uphill battle to try and switch the field position at worst, or score. Our offense was inept, and having to go 80 plus on almost every drive made it worse.
Do you know why I put up with this 'pitiful job', Mr. Donaghy, why I fetch these folks' lunches and clean up their barfs? Cause they make television. And more then jazz, or musical theater, or morbid obesity, television is the true American artform.
