    I hope our heads don’t get too big that we can’t hold them up for the win tomorrow. Very dangerous place to be: #3, on the road, against a decent team.

    Cant take any team lightly. I hope team isn’t already looking to host UNC next week which would likely be #3 hosting #4. Play solid ball and just get out of FW with a W. Then you can start preparing for UNC.

    I agree 100%. Keep up the intensity, and focus on one game at a time.

  • There’s enough to improve on from the first three games that I’d be shocked to see any complacency. I mean, jeez, although I’ve made enough excuses for it, they DID just turn it over 26 times in the last game. Toss in continued improvement on defense, which I think they recognize is needed, and turning the offense into an unguardable force–I think they’ll have their heads screwed on straight.

  • That was the mentality later last season, hopefully it’s carried over to this season.

    I can’t help but feel bad for Michigan State fans. They are at the end of one of the most disappointing seasons I’ve seen in college football and now their basketball team is following the same trend. Just about the opposite is the case for IU. Yeah, our football team is 5-6 but the defensive improvement we’ve seen this year is like a 9-3 season for us; and if we beat Purdue I think we’ll be the strongest 6-6 bowl team in the field and hopefully get an actual bowl win.

    It’s a great time to be a Hoosier and a terrible time to be a Spartan.

    Enjoy it while you can I’d say – although I would caveat that by saying I do support the B1G schools in non-conference play. Would have loved them to beat Kentucky.

    Izzo’s got one of the best freshman classes in the nation so I’ve not really got any sympathy and I’m sure he’ll get the best out of them eventually. Not sure whether Bridges can put them on his back and get them to any kind of level this year, but man he’s a talent and is going to be great at the next level.

    I don’t think it’s unusual for MSU to start off a little slow, but you can bet Izzo will have that squad working like a finely tuned machine come March.
