I’m thinking about entering the transfer portal. Putting out feelers to who might want my services.
I’ll give you a pack of Sour Patch Kids if you stay. It’s the best NIL deal I can offer.
@tis4tim Sometimes I think we forget to compete. Like we’re just going through the motions, doing things that would work in practice, but we forget to actually play.
That’s what I see too. It’s early and we’re a work in progress and every team is different. Yet, lack of a killer instinct seems to be a universal theme with Self. 2008 might be an exception.
Iona was lifeless and then we put in subs and stopped playing hard
I realize it’s hard to keep the intensity for 40 minutes and there’s a natural tendency to let up when you get a substantial lead.
I just don’t know Bill’s psyche enough to know if he just doesn’t like embarrassing other coaches or if he likes in-game psy-ops with his own players to build toughness or if we just can’t turn it on again once we turn it off. Any way you look at it costs us a fee games every year and often at the most inopportune time.
As frustrated as everyone is right now, remember that these guys are college kids and no one is perfect.
I hear what you’re saying, but we didn’t have to be perfect. 9-21 from FT and 4-19 from 3-point line is not going to win you many games.
@tis4tim agreed but maybe that gets fixed. I mean he has been practicing with the team.
I know: small sample size, but his whole incident was such a disruption so early in the season. Hopefully, he’ll turn it around, but I don’t see anything improved in his game thus far from last season. I don’t have a lot of confidence in his play.
Troy shouldn’t being doing Cowboy games.
This is just my humble opinion, but while Troy would seem to have a conflict of interests broadcasting the Cowboys game, I believe he was there more for the Arrowhead experience than for his beloved Cowboys.
It’s easy to tune out Joe Buck and Aikman for their banter, but they said on multiple occasions how incredible the venue and the tailgating experience is in Kansas City and how it’s one of the best atmospheres in all of sports. And they’re correct. The Sunday ritual takes a backseat to no one and I’m sure any broadcast team would want to be a part of it to soak up the sights, the sounds, the smells and the tastes that come with game day in KC.

@tis4tim I thought you were going to say " Doormat to Dominant ".
Baby steps! Not ready to crown them world beaters just yet. But, from what I’ve read, recruits did indeed take notice of the outcome of this game. From a fan standpoint, it was just an all-around entertaining game. Bigger picture, the win may end up being bigger than we imagined. I tend to be skeptical by nature, but good things are happening and we should embrace it. Change is coming!
This is such a great story. Guys like Casey bust their asses just as much as the starters, but get little recognition or fanfare. The fact that he was pressed into action due to injuries during the game is not an easy assignment. To be in your bathrobe and slippers when opportunity knocks and still answer the door is a testament to Casey’s hard work and mental preparation. He deserves everything coming his way for being ready when called upon. Not only will this play be remembered forever, but it just might be the flashpoint for this football team’s metamorphosis from doormat to decent.
“We’ll handle that internally,” Coach K said after Tuesday’s 92-52 win over Gardner-Webb University. “We’re already handling it.”"
In other news, I heard that the NCAA just kicked a Cleveland State basketball player off the team. The NCAA says that the removal of the player was harsh, but they hope Duke has learned its lesson.
