Though I belive the D did not play up to expectations, the O was a critical influence to the D's demise. When the D was on the field on average 11 minutes more then the Offense well - it doesn't take rockets science to figure out the O is not scoring and the D will get worn down.

4-8. Rich Rod will be able to claim improvement this season as he steals more money in the form of a salary. Can't wait to see the coaching show after another embarrassing loss at home and another crappy season. Lloyd bailed at the right time....hahahahahah

This season will be a 9 win season. Which is terrible. State fans could learn a lot from somebody who isn't estatic about 9 wins.
