  1. Toledo -10 WKU +3 if Zappe plays Fresno state by a million over UTEP BYU - 7 Louisiana -5 Old Dominion + 9.5 UTSA -2.5 North Texas +3.5
  2. Since this has taken a turn into QB discussion (no way!), feels like it's important to point out Ruder is naturally talented enough to be a very VERY good QB for us. If he stays, he'll have a full offseason to get his confidence back and be our guy next year. If he leaves, it's probably best for him considering Head/Drummond will both be legitimate starting candidates next year - at least it seems that way. As many have said on here... no need to be jerks about it.
  3. Ja'Mari Maclin is transferring from an SEC school. JD Head had massive interest from Texas Tech and started two games in November for La Tech (and did pretty good). Don't know much about Savage but his film is promising. Y'all have been pining for transfer portal players forever. Here's 3 good ones. Wish negativity was not the initial reaction.
  4. Jack Sorenson is an amazing WR. Super speedy and has been a lethal deep threat this year. Will be hard to contain him, but man is he fun to watch.
  5. I spent the afternoon compiling some stats and notes on Miami to give everyone a quick rundown of what kind of team they are. Enjoy!
  6. I argue that Seth is worth keeping as long as he keeps passing thresholds. We effin' sucked against teams above 500 under Seth. 2 of our last 5 wins were over teams with winning records. We effin sucked against UTSA in 2020 and could've let the rivalry go entirely in their favor, and he made sure the exact opposite happened. We effin' sucked doing anything on offense in September/October and he kept having faith in his OL and RBs. Aune got so much better throughout the year. The OL got so much better. Ragsdale and Adeyi have emerged as the RBs of the near future. Our defense is the second most improved in FBS. We expect relevance from Seth Littrell and he has not given it to us. Beating UTSA is relevance. Winning a bowl game is relevance. I do think he is not the right guy to lead us into the AAC BUT If he can win the bowl, and show that things are steering in the right direction, I am willing to be patient with him in 2022. I am still of the belief that a decent to good QB on this roster as is gets us 8-9 wins. I do not believe we lose to SMU, UAB or Louisiana Tech with a competent, reliable QB.
  7. I don't care who we play and I don't care where we play. Just win.
  8. CUSA and Judy can go kick rocks. We reppin the AAC in this bowl bitch
  9. Deserves more credit. Has shut me, a former hater, up. I really was not a fan of his hire given his resume but our DL is one of the best in the conference this year and have only become more disciplined and more aggressive.
  10. Even in the blowout losses, the defense is not what killed us. Our offense has taken a significant step backwards in terms of passing abilities and it's kept the defense on the field A LOT more than they probably wanted to be this year. If we have a Mason Fine (I know, just hang with me) on this team we probably go 9-3/10-2 or so. I love Aune so much and he is worthy of our respect but if this team had a QB who could really get the ball moving.... man I don't think we lose a couple of those early games as badly as we do.
  11. Aune is likely the starter headed into next year. I have all the respect and admiration for him as a person. He is an easy dude to root for and the team loves him. But we are not going to eclipse any success here with him at the helm. We need to hammer the transfer portal hard this offseason.
  12. Houston is far more legitimate than UTSA and would probably beat us pretty soundly. Dont like saying that but it is true. Would much prefer a more level matchup. Not to disrespect ourselves either but if I was Houston I would be pretty disappointed with that matchup, given the state of the two programs and their seasons.
  13. (I just wanted an excuse to post this in here and have more laughs at nUTSAcks expense)
  14. Bruh he just beat an 11-0 top 25 team with basically no QB and no WRs
  15. I'll be there! Probably going to develop a cold but oh well. Worth it.
  16. If you can't understand the sentiment of what he's expressing you don't know ball.
  17. I feel like 2 of these things coming to fruition gives us a good chance. McCormick isn't going to run for 244 yards again.
  18. Thanks for using a single post to let me know to never talk UNT ball with you in person. What an absolutely pathetic and selfish mindset. My view of success is cheering for a North Texas victory every Saturday they take the field. Never cheer for the good guys to lose. GMG
  19. Also, not to jinx it, but we have not allowed a single sack since the Liberty game
  20. I've seen a lot of people say Aune makes or breaks this game for us. While we desperately need a statline outside of his weaker performances (~150 yards, 0 TD 1/2 INT), I don't think he needs to be anything better than just okay. I know people are tired of the over commitment to the run, but we need to HAMMER it Saturday. They are a front seven that has barely allowed 100 RYPG, but UAB rushed for 220 yards and literally gave UTSA that game. I'm not trying to take anything away from UTSA (yes I am, who am I kidding) but UAB wins if they go for it on fourth and literal inches instead of cowardly punting it away. Western Kentucky (one of the most efficient offenses in college football) were able to spread the ball out and still rush for 147 yards against UTSA and lost by six. Illinois rushed for 150 and lost by 7. My point is, we need the RB core to go nuts on Saturday. QBs like Bailey Zappe, Dylan Hopkins and Artur Sitkowski have been able to exploit their secondary. But we NEED three separate 50+yard rushers. We need to wear them out on defense. Our defense has been phenomenal this year. Phe-no-me-nal. They've allowed 380 total YPG (which is pretty good) and that's largely inflated due to how quickly our offense has given the ball right back to opponents since week one. If we can show up, establish any sort of running game, prevent turnovers, and keep our defense off the field as much as possible, folksd we have a chance. WKU played their game and hung 46 on them. They needed miracles to beat Memphis and UAB. They struggled with Southern Miss, who we destroyed. This team is beatable. RUN THE EFFIN BALL.
