    You are correct that no one wants to hear it. There is some chance you are correct on the outcome but why stir that pot now?

    If we are going to save him, lets use him in 4 games where we will likely need a big play to win a game (Big Ten games). Let's not waste him. I hope Peters plays up to his rating but I don't believe pass blocking will be a strength and up to this point he has not shown much, albeit a small...

    Agree. Lovie needs to win 6 or more games this year to take some of the criticism down a notch. Playing both might be the best way to win. We are not in the position to save Isaiah for a future year. Recruit a good qb behind him in 2020 or 2021 class and get him ready post Isaiah.

    Smith's father evidently putting the bad mouth on Underwood. Not news. Been talked about ever since he left.

    Interesting basketball podcast with Tate on News Gazette site, particularly for us old timers. Hits all the usual subjects. Thinks Smith situation cost us Liddell and hurts us in STL for some time. Thinks chancellor should quit wasting time on Chief as its not solvable. Nothing earth...

    What would you expect out of a bureaucracy like the NCAA? Would like to see logic behind decisions on OSU qbs, Mark Smith, etc. But they don't want you to see behind that curtain..they would be exposed

    Hopefully, that implies either Peters or Tate is coming to Champaign

    Good point. Football too, sort of..college experience was a long time ago. Never know but think Howard will be an excellent recruiter.

    We went old school...tough guy...they went new...former nba player with connections and sons...I don't favor us in this contest.

    Probably can but don't know until we see it. College is different than pros. Good choice for Michigan unfortunately.

    Agree... good hire from them from a recruiting standpoint. Don't know if he can coach. Hiring a primary assistant with head coaching experience will help with that. Recruiting 80% of winning and knowing his way around Chicago another plus. Think Michigan advantage.

    Its disappointing and a big miss. You hoped the prior relationship would have carried the day. Need some breakthroughs by Jones and Nichols at SF. Need a body at PF that can hold up defensively off the bench.

    Here's how I think you have to look at it. Will we be better in 2020 thru 2023 with or without Lovie? If Lovie gets fired and Rod Smith is not the new coach, 2020 recruiting will be a disaster and with the number of transfers occurring these days, we will be mired in last place as long as the...

    I assume you can become eligible again in your transfer year, if that is really the issue. If we don't get a transfer, the Lovie evaluation will become more nuanced. Recruiting appears to be picking up. If we lose a couple close games due to inexperience at qb and finish 5 and 7 or 4 and 8, I...

    Agree but we need to be able to play two bigs at times. I was at PSU game...they played two bigs and punished us inside.

    . You believe that? Do you think if he was going to be a starting qb at Georgia this year that anyone would have ever heard this. I am also told that Fields sister still attends Georgia.. don't know that for a fact...third hand twitter..😁

    There was a coaching change..the offensive coordinator of the previous coach. Martell did not leave because of the coaching change. He left because fields transferred in.
