Wouldn't be surprised if Vandy pulls off the upset. Think it'll be a close game either way

Florida State about to lose to Syracuse...yikes

 

Wow. That head coach should have stayed at Oregon. They're probably ready to run him out of Tallahassee.

ND is not very good imo. Stanford will wax them and so will VT. That OL misses Mcglinchy and Nelson.

 

If that Vandy receiver held on to the catch at the ND 10-yard line with less than 2 minutes left in the game, Vandy may have won the game.

 

Why do you think Stanford will "wax" them? I don't know about that.

They struggled to beat Ball State and Vandy

 

    Ball State got destroyed by IU today

Because I’ve watched both teams and ND has not dominated the line of scrimmage on either side of the ball. Maybe it won’t be a blow out because it’s at ND I believe but I think they lose by two scores. I’m not a big Kelly fan. I personally don’t think he is the right fit at ND...and watching this year hasn’t changed my opinion. I don’t think ND will be able to run on Stanford and I think Love has a big game.

That happens when you front load you schedule :thmup:

You still have to win the games. Ask Purdue and Nebraska about losing to teams you should beat. They also absolutely dominated Ball State who should have beat ND. FIU was a bowl team last year by the way and Virginia is a middle pack power 5 conference team. Might not be playing Alabama but it’s a smart respectable schedule.

No

  Miss St

  South Carolina

  @ Texas A&M

  Vanderbilt    

  @ Missouri

  Georgia

   @ Tennessee

   Middle Tennessee St

   @ Louisville 

 

 

 

No Auburn, Alabama, LSU?? Huh I know they don’t play them every year but that is a favorable schedule. Defiantly a bowl team and a chance to win the Sec East if say Georgia loses two...I don’t think they beat Texas A&M either but this is their year to make noise.

I've had my issues with Stoops but hes really done a heck of a job with UK. Could end up with an 8-9 win season. Hes really done a good job building the trenches which is where you win or lose games (especially in the SEC)

This is also a special season since the team has been hit with cancer twice

    • I called guys like Willis a failure because the Colts traded up to get him.  Publicly said they considered taking him in the 3rd round where they took Okereke.   They didn’t get much from him when he played and then he retired early.   Tell played a small amount his rookie year and played well.  Then took the next year off for Covid.  But then came back and was on the practice squad.   Wasn’t even a backup.   Sorry, that’s a failure, not a stretch.   Davis was sent to the PS as a rookie where he was claimed.   Blackman either can’t stay healthy or doesn’t play well enough to make an impact.  Good against the run, poor against the pass and he plays free safety.   Not enough performance for a third round player.     All your other arguments are not related to your original question which was to ask about Ballard’s defensive draft failures.   You asked, I answered.   I didn’t say Ballard had no defensive successes.   
    • Morris,   “The Indianapolis Colts are doing the "unprecedented," as the team is set to go through a third round of interviews for the vacancy at head coach.  But despite the long decision process, Los Angeles Rams defensive coordinator Raheem Morris remains "one to watch," per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.   “It seems like some of the candidates did really well," he said on The Rich Eisen Show. “Raheem Morris I’ve heard has done very well. I think that’s certainly one to watch,”
    • Including 4th and 5th round picks as failings is a stretch. It's still early to call Blackman a failure just yet.  How about the players that were hits? How about the ratings of the defense as a whole over the span since 2018? Where was the defense rated on points scored against them? Had we had just an average offense there would have been a substantial amount of more wins. 
    • Just in, An unnamed source from the Indiana Farm Bureau on W. 56th street has strongly suggested on the condition of anonymity, that Yao Sujie the Chinese National Olympic Handball Coach is now the clear dark horse front runner for the vacant head coaching position of the Indianapolis Colts.  
    • The defensive failures would be these….   2018: 2nd R: Turay. DE 2nd R:  Lewis. DE   2019:  2nd R:  Benogu.   DE 4th R:   Willis       SS 5th R:   Tell.         CB   2020:   Blackman. FS   2021:   Davis.       DB   NOTE:   I didn’t include 2017 in this.  The Colts first three picks were all defense.  None have developed.
