Wreck this isn't a game, its' a shoot out!    Thought for a minute it was the WAC conference.     But then I saw some defense.  You got some players.

Turner Gill has lost his mind! 

I'm so glad Auburn decided to pass on him. This kind of stuff will ruin recruiting.


http://ncaafootball.fanhouse.com/2010/09/29/in-kansas-turner-gill-becomes-the-wizard-of-odd/
PDH I just read about this yesterday and even us NU fans who know and love him are scratching our heads over this one... seems very unrealistic.  Only thing I can think of is that there is more going on behind the scenes that we dont know about that led to this... Agree this would be a turnoff to recruiting. 

I see both sides of this, perhaps Gill's trying to 'out' the issues he sees that impact players and focus? I don't think you can legislate what he's trying to legislate, but ultimately somehow some players just don't mature enough to manage their own lives very well.  The frustrations of this for coaches is a real issue, for remember, they are held responsible for the wins or not -



I do have sympathy for coaches trying to keep a team focused. However....at some point a young person in college has to learn to sink or swim, and live with the decisions made....even the bad ones. A coach can't micromanage his players.
Forbidding a young man of college age from contact with girls after 10:00 PM is counter-productive IMHO.

PDH I don't disagree, neither does son. The issue is the expectations of the AD and also boosters and fans. They expect a HC to manage these players and yes, to micromanage 'stars' with issues. I think Gill's remarks are public but that many HC's say similar things in private to some players. If an HC or his staff aren't able to turn around a star, depending upon the attitude of the AD, if they aren't being arrested then the expectation is to 'fix' them to ensure they deliver on the playing field. Son thinks you can tell pretty quickly which players can make the curve in terms of governing their own behavior but he's also quick to tell those who don't seem to have the desire to make the sacrifices, that they won't go far. I know he can and will have critics of his position on this.

I actually think facilities and rankings play a far greater role with recruits then even HC's.

Congrats on the win GO!!! Did your Badgers even break a sweat? I think even the janitor put on a Wisconsin uniform and got some playing time! 

No doubt about it...Wisconsin is a great team. 


sharon - great to see a 'Canes fan posting! What's new down there?


cuz....I felt that way many times over the last two years. It is so very hard to lose a game like that. Mallett was trying to make something happen, and it just didn't work out the way he thought it would. I really like that kid, and he'll go to next level and do well.



We play Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday. Our kids are a little banged up so I don't expect this one to be as hard hitting as the last 3 games have been.

I am joining in on the prayers for an injury free season. These are kids, after all. Some of them are barely 18.
none - I don't think I ever heard what happened with Prothro. I heard something about an injury, but I never heard any details. What happened to him? If you'd rather not post it here, I understand....



On to Week 5!
Time flies when you're having a breakdown every Saturday night..



pdh - Prothro's original ankle injury (totally shattered) was excaberbated by an infection he caught while hospitalized which proved to derail his rehab for months. The original injury insured he could never play again as it is - so terribly sad. Son played on his basketball team in intramurals and got to know him fairly well, they are still in touch. Son has always thought Prothro would make a great college coach but even with help for big-time interviews in college programs and NFL, he hasn't landed anything. I don't get it, I really don't. I would think Bama of all programs would give him a shot too. This is a photo from the game against FL at the moment of his injury, it was so apparent how terrible the injury was at the moment of impact even from the stands. http://www.flickr.com/photos/beefcakejcc/49374670/






OH MY GOSH!

That poor kid! That is truly a disturbing photo. God Bless him! I certainly hope Prothro gets a chance to coach. He must miss football terribly. That's really a heartbreaking way to end a football career.

Thanks for telling his story. I'll put him in my prayers. I hope he has regained his health now.



Did you notice the photo of Toomer's corner in that photostream?

Son's team has one of their biggest games on Saturday, so asking for the monkeys to send strong winning mojo their way - they did win last weekend but it was an ugly game. One of son's stars has a concussion too, he called me this morning to discuss it for I think he's really worried about him. Poor guy but glad he has son watching over him, I know he's doing all he can to ensure he's well taken care of, he's been driving him daily to see the team docs.

Wreck I watched your actual Thursday nite game.  My dad thought they looked fast and athletic. I still feel OSU  deserves to be ranked above us. My 85 year old dad was surprised they where not even ranked. This win over A&M should help.

If you were one of the original 20 female tourists to encounter JVDS while on vacation call the FBI. Tell them where you were taken.

   Wreck... please check in so we know your heart made it thru that game!  Whew. 

Cuz, good luck with your new gig.  Hope it is a great one for you.  Do check in when you can ok?

Kiwi, I agree that OSU should be ranked... and I think this game will get them started.  Silly polls.

I'm still with us!!  It was an exciting game -- but, pretty ugly. We were down by 2 touchdowns at the half because of OUR turnovers and came back on A&M's turnovers. As long as our offense keeps chuggin' -- we have a chance against anyone!
