  1. Because the coach has to navigate all this nonsense and put a team on the field on Saturdays, maybe? let the players make money, we’ve arrived on that. But to think a coach who has to rake thru the mud in the portal and put a team forward to try and win games should make LESS money is stupid. Some leave some come here. How cool! The players have a voice! the coaches are getting looooong contracts and the players can still get paid. Not enough? Bail out and go portal. welcome to the end of “our team, ride or die”. It’s over, and the coaches are secure more than ever. Glad we still have Frost to do it for us. It’s a s#!t show out there, folks
  2. Go see my thread about being happy retaining Frost for at least next year. We are on the road to consistency. he took a pay cut, his players love him, he has support of the Admin, he’s on a performance contract now too, he knows he wins or done. If worse is worse Univ saved a few million on buyout. Not results we have wanted the last 4 yrs but at least we have a coach that has been here and not rebuilding a few weeks before signing day. All this action makes me hold my bet on Frost, I’m doubling down Trev made the right decision. contrast that with the brand new landscape at great big huge programs from coast to coast. OU lost like 5 verbals from top recruits TODAY. Venables has never been a head coach. Riley has huuuuuuge pressure to win today, not handed a Stoops qualifier, won’t be easy. Kelley buttered his bread at Oregon and won as an independent at ND, welcome to SEC country man. ETC ETC ETC with all these big programs with huge changes and huge expectations. Good luck I’m more happy we kept Frost today than I was 2 weeks ago
  3. I’m down w FROST. There is no loyalty! We have have the corner on loyalty! coaches leave, Riley coaches get fired, Orgeron coaches get unwarranted extensions (Franklin, Tucker, freeze) Frost started this, he will see us through
  4. 10 yr contracts $4-10M per year coaches fired who are National Championship winners. The portal NIL Skill kids leaving all over, not waiting to be developed lockdown gave way to 6 yr seniors with the Coach from the South leaving for a real damn challenge, I’m even more satisfied retaining Frost. Look at the pendulum: coaches were fired across the land after 3 sometimes 4 yrs the last 8-10yrs. Waaaay too soon imo. Now it’s “get the coach in to build a program long term to show solid program”. now the coaches are grabbing long term contracts (some seemingly unwarranted) and even moving on from playoff teams and great $$. It’s a war of attrition, and I like that we will stick through; Frost has his culture here finally, they never quit on this coach. Methinks it will pay off it’s really turbulent out there and Alberts went back to the well. Seeing what’s going on, I’m glad he did, despite the record we are really close to having it pay off
  5. That was a 55yd in the air rope. (Own 25 to to opp 30) look, Smothers is gonna struggle and have some dumb s#!t most likely. But he can also make plays. He’s been sitting back, practicing hard, probs has the playbook for him nailed down. As per usual, it will all depend on the OL i really wish AM was available but I’m thinkin real positive for the backup. He can make plays and hopefully gain momentum throughout the game.
  6. I’d rather watch a really fun competitive game with a chance to win than watch a guy run for 408yds in 3 quarters and get the f blown out. all while the coach spits and chews out the players. If ya’ll can’t see that we are *this close than you aren’t watching the same team I am
  7. Did we have any youngsters or other injured players that will be able to redshirt with only 4 games or less played?
  8. No. Doesn’t need a miracle. needs a couple guys as good as him, also to bring some fresh butter to the bread. This will energize and galvanize the team, finally getting the little details right. perfect move, perfect timing.
  9. I love this kid and he is a baller. We don’t have anyone better and he keeps us in games, makes some good plays. but when it matters most for 4 straight years HE CHOKES My solution: we just have to live with it. It is what it is
  10. We have a lot of super seniors, but that means we have time for young ones to grow. This defense could turn into a monster over the next 2-5 yrs. a lot of talent we recruited hasn’t had to play yet, hopefully we unleash those beasts moving forward But right now, I think our defense is f’ing competing hard, and it’s damn fun to watch.
  11. Yeah, the defense is super 6 guys. But who has been waiting will be an experienced group with fresh/soph guys who’ve been here 2-3 yrs. The Offense, w Martinez back will be so stacked. don’t judge too quick what we could be next year, we will be stacked. let’s focus on this year…we can literally beat any team this season left on our schedule. We have absolutely turned the corner.
  12. Once the refs (for both sides) decided to swallow their whistles we actually had a good game to watch. So many “play is under review” and “upon replay” it was boring and sucked any play by actual f’ing players out of the game. Glad the refs made 2nd half adjustments and let them play. defense is so aggressive and good but only can be asked to do so much. The other team had it really dialed in and out-called us a few times 2nd half. But we responded well also. we are finally f’ing competitive. Finally. 3 top 10 teams to the wire which we could’ve (should’ve) won. These games woulda been blowouts in yrs prior. we absolutely have turned the corner. With AM back next season and fully depthed out, I honestly feel like we could be in the playoffs w a conference championship to show for it.
  13. Every game this season we been competitive, win or lose the game before. Illinois really stings now, but our team has been competitive against 3 top 10 teams. Coulda maybe won each one. Been a long long time since we were in these games. I’m so confident of our team right now.
  14. We good. Patience is a virtue
  15. He comes back next year for sure.
  16. No one should shank a punt 7 yds. That’s player no one should false two times in row. That’s player. no one should punt it against coverage. That’s player. This was not a poorly called game, there were terrible gaffes by players. do I think Frost needs to make changes? Yes. But this one wasn’t on him. Several plays by players on the field to do their job didn’t do them. We did NOT get outcoached.
  17. This wasn’t on Frost. He called a good game. Players have to execute. The last route by #3 was bad. The punt was bad. Guys shouldn’t false start. I’m not “blaming” players but this wasn’t a Frost bad game. we balled out tonight and it was player execution/player mental mistakes. the special teams totally lost us this game. That absolutely was player execution. The 7yd punt and the wrong side field punt is players. edit: only coaching that is reallllly bad is o-line
  18. 2 returners back. coverage goes right. Ball kicked left. Touchdown. what in the actual f#&%
  19. o-line/special teams Rinse repeat we have a good team. A real fine team. But those two areas need a f’ing adjustment
  20. Don’t go chasing Wan’dale falls, please stick to the Toure’s and the Omar’s you’re used to. I know you’re that you’re gonna have it Wan’dale or nothin at all, Betts I think you’re Martin too fast.
  21. I’d buy it!! been waiting for his lil ‘breakout’, hopefully AM trusts him more and he has some strut going into B1G where he is very very needed. C’mon AM, throw him the damn ball! He looks like a pro guy but gotta prove it, and only AM and Frost can help that. where is our next very polished Toure or #1 juco Manning coming from? just read on espn Kiffin is throwing shade to the “Free Agency” of the Alabama’s of the world, Saban doesn’t deny. I know Omar has one more year but we got damn lucky w Toure this season. Betts looks to be rounding out and there is some talent on board tho none proving anything yet. Martin gets healthy and has 1 more? can Omar finish with 40 catches and 700 more yds over the last 8 games? His season would seem successful if we can win some of those games. Then finish w 60-65 catches and 900-1100 yds his senior year (espc if AM returns) and show that receivers can come here and be successful? Don’t want to think to far ahead but he had a “ break” year and is showing now, but really gotta turn it on and show up EACH game the rest of this year and totally ball out for us to attract future talent. Seems poised to do that.

    O-Line

    The idea of getting into a 3 point stance and just asserting some will on teams would go a long long way to getting these boys some confidence and learn how to strong arm opponents. I like our scheme, but man…sometimes you have to be able to get low in a stance and crack some skulls. Show some Power and knock some heads around.
