I still can't believe that game. Florida's defense (save one pass play) was money, but your offense was brutal. Driskel is horrible. And Miami? Good God, that team is really bad.

Mack Brown you are here by places on notice as well!!


Here's the problem: you just replaced Diaz with a coordinator who is worse than he was in Greg Robinson. As a Michigan man, I can promist you that you'll passionately hate him. The moment the 3-3-5 defense is implemented is the moment you'll want him fired.

Plus, the problem isn't your coordinators. It's Mack Brown and his clear inability to coach. He expects his coordinators to carry all of the load while he reaps all of the rewards.

oh I dont like Robinson at all. Never really have.

And you are correct on Mack Brown!! I have wanted him gone for the last 3 years! His biggest inability as of late is the lack of recruiting and holding onto those top recruits that he does get. We have lost alot of 4 and 5 star recruits in the last 3 years it's pathetic!

Follow that up, with his inability to find a decent QB. It all started with Gilbert. There was a report out this past week that RGIII, McCarron and Manziel all wanted to go to Texas but Mack Brown was dead set on Gilbert, Chase McCoy and now David Ash at those times. Huge mistakes on Mack Browns part!

I was in shock for a good 30 mins after that game. Had to eat a LOT of crow. 6 Turnovers, 4 of which were in the Redzone. It was heart breaking.

And yes, it's been a long time coming for Mack Brown to step down. He is more of a hindrance than anything. Have him be a fundraiser with the boosters and get a young and hungry coach. If they could get Coach Strong in the Big 12...that would be aamazing hire for them!

Back when Bielema was hired as the Head Hog, I predicted that Alex Collins would be SEC newcomer of the year as well as a 1st Team Freshman All American. So far, so good. After 2 games, Collins is 4th in the nation in rushing yards. He has 303 yards on 45 carries with 1 TD. This kid is going to be scary good, if he can stay healthy.

Just wait until the Hogs have fully adjusted to the Barry Alvarez RB system. Bielema made a perfect running system even better. You'll know when that team has gelled. The results will be staggering, both for your RBs and for your o-linemen. It'll make you want to cry tears of joy every time the ball is snapped.

I know it will be better when it's fully implemented, but it's hard to imagine. The way the training staff transformed Petrino's pass blocking OL into an OL that has produced 2 100 yards rushers in both of the 1st 2 games is amazing.

Don't get too comfy with Bielema ht. Once Iowa fires Ferentz, they will be asking their boy to come home.

Which is crazy because 3-5 years ago I was all about Ferentz.

It is crazy and at least for me a little hard to wrap my mind around.

You have to give some wiggle room to him due to the fact that Iowa isn't and never will be a recruiting hotbed, but he's now posted a 20-20 record over the past 3+ seasons. This coming on the heels of a $90M renovation to Kinnick Stadium and a soon to be opening $55M football complex. Add to it his $3.8M/yr contract and the ends don't fit the means.

I should mention that the Bielema comment was made mostly in jest. Ferentz has a contract that going to make it very difficult to fire him at least for a few more years. As it stands now, Ferentz would walk away with nearly $17M if fired. Odds of that happening are pretty slim.

Arkansas Razorback freshman RB Alex Collins is the first RB in SEC history to go over 100 yards rushing in each of his first 3 games. That's impressive! WPS!
