We aren't struggling because of toughness and he also needs to realize the 90's aren't happening again. This loss was a horrible loss, but even being "tough" wasn't going to win us that game. We have a myriad of issues, but even with all of that we have lost a lot of close games and we probably lost those more due to discipline. I'm down on our team, but not quite to the level of a lot of others.I respect your posts, but is he wrong? I love that old school mindset.
A prime example is NW is a very sound football team. I think we did more against them than any team has this year and if Adrian was anywhere close to making throws we would have beat them somewhat soundly. At some point we just need to find someone who can make things happen. We had receivers wide open a lot against Illinois and frankly all season, but we are unable to get the ball to them. Also, I don't care if we go down in flames, but lets go fast. When we go tempo, we tend to look decent and I cringe when we slow it down. Also, more jet sweeps and getting the ball to playmakers in space.
