So before I went to the beloved, I attended the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I hated my time there. I would love to see us absolutely slaughter the 49ers. Can we please make this happen? I desperately need this.

There's the snap....Blake Hayes is punting from the Charlotte 10 yd line and pins them at the one yd line with a brilliant 9 yard punt....

BTW, Charlotte then goes on a 99 yard drive in 1 minute to win the game...................

Can we be done with Peters’s already...? Dude made one diving play in a bowl game 2 yrs ago. Don’t mean to knock a young 23 yr old qb for real, but he’s not the answer. Art Sit looks like Craig Krenzel just saying...

Someone show Peterson the highlights of the spring game where he actually wasn’t afraid to use play action at the ”right time”

That's funny. He really does. I'd take Krenzel-level play for sure. Not because he looks like Krenzel, but I would like to see Art start and let's see what his upside could be. Seems we do not have much hope for this season, so let's get started on the (re?)building and see what we have here. I did not see the UTSA game, but he generally was poised from what I have seen if not overwhelmingly productive. His numbers are solid overall and seems to have a good head on his shoulders.

But I need four for my over/under. Hopes dimming, I know, but tell me there's a chance...
I hear ya, man. There is a chance, but it's vanishingly small. Maybe MN can come through for us.

NW doesn't look like world beaters either. There's still a chance.
Yeah, I think we'll beat Charlotte and have a decent chance against Northwestern for our 3rd and final win this season.

My confidence in BB is sliding after these last two games. If BP starts Sat.... and/or these pitiful late game 'not to lose' decisions keep happening, I just can't continue to be very optimistic about this rebuild.

There is ZERO to gain starting a 6 yr senior if you aren't winning games like these last two. Zero.
This is a full rebuild now. We've lost 3 VERY winnable games now even with all the injuries and poor QB play.
To continue forward with the same mindset means these coaches are not as tuned in as I had hoped.

Minnesota lost to Bowling Green yesterday at their own homecoming but we don't have a chance at. W? Who though ND would score big against WI? Iowa struggled for awhile against CSU.

Keep competing...
no one gave us a chance in 2019 against Wiscy or Sparty

repeats of those outcomes against Iowa, Minny or Wiscy just not very likely . not more than maybe 10%~20% against any of those teams .
Rutgers will also likely be favored over us

We are 15 point favorites over Charlotte. We will be underdogs to every other team and have been except for UTSA. This would be true home or away with any Big Ten team. BTW, the line I saw was from Odds Shark - not a place I usually look but the first that popped up.

We have 4 games that we should be competitive in and 3 we have no chance on paper. Team needs this one to stay engaged for the year and allow the underclasses see there is a path to success. This team isn’t as bad as people make it. Rebuilding takes time and patience. The last 2 games hurt hopefully this one will be different

That says a lot about who is making our O decisions and what he prefers the emphasis to be on.

NW may be a toss-up. That team is BAD

Hypothetically speaking if I were to tell you at the beginning of the season we would go 3-9 with only 3 blowouts (Virginia, Penn St and Iowa) would you consider that an acceptable first season for BB?

It seems to be the direction we are heading in and I can't decide what I think of it yet.
