    Glad I didn't stick around for this one and stopped watching when I did. Losing to 1-4, 0-1 Miami on the Homecoming game...after beating Northwestern...and being 2-1 going into conference play, when having two-weeks to prepare for this game...is absolutely unacceptable. It's beyond embarrassing. The Zips had no business losing to 1-4 Miami...let alone 41-17. I'm personally almost ready to call it quits on this season. Hopefully you guys can talk me off the ledge...I've been in a foul mood lately...and the Zips were supposed to be my diversion for the week.

    Do we have a plan of attack? Or are we just kicking the ball?

    Our worries are over. We don't have to worry about going to a bowl game. We don't have to worry about driving to Detroit for a MAC Championship game. We don't have to worry about parking in lot 1 the rest of the season, because there won't be many filled spaces. We don't have to worry about Kato vs. Ramart, because the coaches must see something I didn't so far in KN. Don't have to worry about people bad-talking the Zips, because no one will come back to see this s*@show. I had my binocs stuck in my eyes most of the game, so help me out. We're the receivers covered that well that Kato had to tuck it in and run so often? Oh, forgot, we don't have to worry about seeing our team improve from making stupid extensive number of penalties. Women's basketball just started, so men's will be around the corner and we can forget about how bad today really was. Balsy was right to tune out early, wish I could have....

    Too many long passes tonight for the zips... picture quality is good...but these announcers are awful... You would think that BG has won 3 straight national titles...with the way that these players are being described by the announcers Zips need to start playing possession soccer and stop standing around

    So we lost out on over a million dollars from Nebraska. We lost against one of the worst MAC teams and now have four away games in a row. I'm looking for the upside.
