Re: Why is the run defense so bad?

It really looks like Penei Pavihi had a shoulder stinger in the second game and was rested in the second half but is still playing. I don't know the true diagnosis, just looks like it. Without him the defense is worse but his play is important and they can't afford to let him rest. Pavihi played ok...

Re: Rolo speaks about his dismissal

Per the article, it sounds like Rolovich is going off on a tangent. He was most likely put off with the firing of his Football Operations guy because of his questions to the Wazzu physician. But to call his boss, the AD, names using the F word and being quoted in the article is making him untouchabl...

Re: SF 49ers are being labelled as fools gold

Another season with Kyle Shanahan and Jimmy Garoppalo. Sheesh. Denver 11 SF 10. Why they gave Jimmy G five years at 25M/yr is beyond me although the contract was modified for this year. Jimmy was making $600K when he played for SF at the end of 2017 so why give him the $25M and lose a great DL in De...

Re: *** Official 2022 UH @New Mexico St Game Thread ***

I gotta give Coach TC credit for his game time decision making. He went for the points on fourth down at the right times and he went for the TD in the end when they had 4 downs to go 1 yard. Even though it didn't make any difference in the score, it was a moral victory. But why it took four downs to...

Re: *** Official 2022 UH @New Mexico St Game Thread ***

I think UH let the clock go because they knew they were physically beat after the first half. NMSU ran the ball at will in the first half and were in cruise mode in the second.

Re: Veneri Brothers as Play by Play Announcers

The brothers sound pretty good in their fifth game. Mark is just overriding John with the spot calls which is all good.

Re: Rolo speaks about his dismissal

I'm trying to find something substantive in his argument but I can't find anything. I guess if EEOC says "no," he can always appeal. My guess is his stay in big time football is over. Maybe FCS is California.

Re: Ohtani or Judge for MVP

At this point in the game, it doesn't matter if Ohtani pitches a perfect game or hits 3 home runs in a game, it doesn't matter to the Angels or the team they're playing. The world is watching for #61.

Re: Veneri Brothers as Play by Play Announcers

Mark is better than John. Listened to them in the first game. Down and distance and the kind of play is important for me in the broadcast and they might have one out of the three. Mark kept correcting John on the spot but not making it obvious. Usually, I have the stats turned on while listening to ...

Re: Watching Chevan play against Auburn made some things very clear

Watching CC, I always thought he could never throw that spiral in his last year with UH; maybe because he had the run in his repertoire. That probably developed after his first year or second year when he had a tendency to fumble when rushed. Now the run is probably the strongest part of his game. I...

Re: Nebraska fires Scott Frost after stunning loss to Georgia Southern

Scott Frost and McKenzie Milton seem to click as coach and QB. Milton would throw a couple of interceptions and fumble the ball and other coaches would hold him back from running the ball or throwing the ball deep but Scott Frost let him do what he needed to do to win. Then Frost plays Adrian Martin...

Re: Lincoln Victor transfers to Washington St

I saw Lincoln Victor this weekend put a lick on a Wisconsin linebacker on national TV that should be worthy of one of the top 10 plays in college football. Ball was intercepted, then Victor came back and jarred the ball loose with a crushing hit. WSU got the ball back and scored. Way to go Lincoln.

Re: Nebraska fires Scott Frost after stunning loss to Georgia Southern

I was really pulling for him at Nebraska after he took UCF to an unbeaten season with Mackenzie Milton. But calling for an onside kick in the first game of the season when they were leading was a head scratcher.

Re: *** official 2022 UH@Michigan Game thread ***

I enjoyed the Michigan radio broadcast. They asked TC trivia and UH trivia questions like "what European team did TC play for," and "what four teams share a trophy with UH?" They did say someone interesting that 85 players then 90 players played in the game but it wasn't a record...
