    I feel like crying and vomiting. I am so disappointed in our D and in Weeden's leadership, which was nonexistent. Heisman candidate my ass.

    It is just a football game. Pretty insignificant event in light of what has occurred over the last 30 hours.

    I hope nobody gets hurt jumping off the bandwagon.

    Can't really blame the team for not being focused, given the tragedy; however, have to say we deserved to lose. 5 turnovers, missed field goal and a defense making a qb with only 3 starts under his belt look like a heisman contender.

    Tough loss, but in the big picture 10-1 with 1 game left at home is still one hell of a season.

    Tough loss guys, sorry.

    The land thieves might want to remember that have a whole lot of ground to make up on Oregon if they expect to play in the championship game.

    The D got us our 3 stops we needed. We shouldn't expect more out of them than that imho. If we're so bad on D, why do we have the Most Takeaways in the FBS. Turnover margin is what wins the vast majority of games. Our offense had 5 to their 3...So in essence the offense had more opportunities to win the game than for our defense to lose it. Who would you honestly take in a game? Our offense or defense in a game? Obviously our offense, but they choked harder than our d. Our d actually played better than they usually do. Our offense is who didn't perform tonight.

    Yes, right below. Looks like it goes right over the goal post...but maybe it's just wishful seeing on my part.

    I honestly think it was no good. If it passes directly over the bar, it's no good. I truly believe it went right over the top of it. If it would've hit and bounced, who then, but the bars weren't high enough...blah. It would've been interesting to see what would've happened if the bars were higher tho.

    If we can only expect our D to make 3 stops...then we're bad dude. Seriously, I know our O played terrible and I'm not saying it's all the D's fault (all around, I'd say).

    But your argument that 3 stops is all we should expect from our Defense against ISU? Come on.

    The commentators were saying that it has to be on the "inside" of the posts to be considered good. How close is it to being on the inside? Also, does anyone know how to access the rule on this?

    I don't remember Aub having much of a defense last year.

    I'm still proud of the players and coaches. It's a tough loss for sure, but in light of recent events it's only a game. We still have a lot to play for and a lot to be proud of. GO POKES!!!!!!!!!!
