yeah, wouldn't it be nice of our D to say " Hey, our offense really needs us to step up big today" - welp, guess that wasn't what they are thinking

Well, Purdue figured out already to throw the ball over the middle. Linebackers get sucked up and are in no man’s land time and time again.

I never played football, I was a basketball player. However, I think I could probably throw for a couple hundred yards against this defense.

I'm so sick of Lovie's defense. It hasn't worked here. I thought he was supposed to be defensive genius?

...and that goes to show how time of possession is basically a bs stat.

This is going to be ugly. This is on Lovie, the D is constantly out of position. As much as I like Lovie, we need a younger coach who has energy.

They are going to stack the box. Nice change at least QB. Robinson was afraid to throw the ball and when he did it was very weak.

Prediction: Taylor will fumble at least once this game.

So, I haven't followed the football team much. I joined the site to read/comment on basketball. But naturally, as a person who bleeds orange and blue, I want the football team to do well. Can someone explain to me, in a few sentences, why Lovie hasn't turned this around? I don't know the sport or the context well enough to understand why we just aren't very good. Thank you!

Can't recruit, can't coach a defense against modern college offenses.

Rod really needs to be fired. His play calling makes Nagy look like a genius. Also Lovie needs to hire a DC and just be a head coach. This defense is so bad and full of open holes
