If the players are going to play with their heads still high then as a fan I won't give it up,either.You never know when this team will start clicking on all cylinders and look like top 20.I don't care about any coaching criticism;we have what we have until Jan,09.I believe everybody is trying like hell,but....please,no more 250 yd. rushers.Offense-score the points you're capable of!
Missed Second half

I saw the line get pushed around and watched re-runs in the second half.
Did someone miss a block for Hayward-Bey on the end around in the second qtr?
Napoleon passed well in the first drive. Who called the plays before the missed FG? Running against that line, again and again?
MD leaves open lanes whether in passing or running. Not enough talent to spread around. Criticism of Ralph? I dunno. You play what you came with. I think I'm being realistic when I say better local players and guys looking to the Mid Atlantic will choose PSU before MD.
Look, Clemson sucked way worse. Miami has to be drinking late at night. GaTech, NC, FSU are pretty bogus compared to Texas, Okla, USC, Fla, Ala, Ga etc etc. The ACC just can't stack up. but the loss to VTEch sucked bad. Beamer schedules these night games for a reason. But why did the boyz look like they gave up early in the second q? Tired or was the coach just eating sunflower seeds and spittin' them at them. I wouldn't want to be as overweight as Fridge and coach. I'd lose some weight. I wouldn't want to even play for a guy who needs a tent to fit around his waist. What kind of inspiration can a slow talking moose be at the half? Football smarts and all that won't get good players to be greater than their talents allow.

When they finish the season 0 and 3 then well see where everybody is defending ralph. If he can't get his team to play any better after a bye week and on national Television with all that was on the line then shame on him. All year long they have been so inconsistent. He himself has question his own ability to get through to the team. This is the beginning of the end for him. If they finish the season getting blanked out he should be fired no questions asked.
