Hate to say it, but Beckman is a dead man walking.

we won't have an offensive player of the week against us but giving up Minnie's first road victory is a joke enough

the whole offense needs to just go away. Defense played well enough to win and the offense was just horrible.

The fumble play highighted the offense's problem all year - the line is so bad, NS couldn't get to within 3 yards of the line of scimmage without being hit by multiple defenders. More generally, we can't run any plays that take any time because we don't have any.

I switched and watched AJ McCarron for a little while. He can't even see the defenders from where he is most of the time - they are blocked out by the line. I though even NS could be an ok QB behind that line.

In last week's postgame, I said I'd look for one positive each week, so here goes. Our defense didn't seem to quit as early in the second half as they usual do. So, you know, there's that.

we all need to quit looking for a siver lining when there honestly isn't one for this team or coaching staff

I have a bad feeling that the locker room could get very ugly after this game.

TB appears to be in over his head. Only a matter of time.

That offense is just plain awful. It doesn't do one thing well.

I don't want to put all the blame on Nate, but he's just not playing well at all. I'm ready to see O'Toole for a couple games. He probably won't do any better, but I think you've at least got to give him a shot.

I'm betting we hit a modern low in attendance next year. I think we dip below 40,000 per game

I certainly hope so. Something needs to happen. I'm so sick of hearing that we are going to come together as a team or we are just looking for improvement. Just blow up the season and play your young guys for experience. We can't do much worse then we are. We are already going to go winless in the little ten this year anyway.

We are in an absolutely no-win position. Fire TB this year and we are a laughing stock where no one will want to coach. Let TB come back, we go 2-9 for another year and we are a laughing stock where no one will want to coach.

I need another drink...

Past the anger stage and into the indifference stage with Illini FB.
