    I'm sorry but you can't coach.........

    stupid. So many things we do wrong happen, or don't happen between the ears and I don't know what else to call it. It is very frustrating for me and feel the coaches take blame for some of these things that are out of their hands. Guess it's just the kind of player we have to recruit right now and for who knows how long.

    Re: I'm sorry but you can't coach.........

    every team will do "dumb" things. Its just you have to limit these "dumb" things. We are just a team that faces superior teams. That is what I believe is what is the most frustrating to all of us Cyclone fans. Because we are sooooo close to being good and finding a identity but we just can not get over the hump...

    Was it White who caught the pass on 4th down at the end and ran out of bounds 1 yard short instead of turning it up field and fighting for that yard. Things like this you can't coach.

    I wouldn't say he ran out of bounds. He got pushed out of bounds. What he didn't do was cut back towards the inside of the field to get more yards.

    Ehh, I don't blame White. If he runs through that CB he could have gotten the 1st down but the CB hit him pretty hard. It wasn't open to the middle at all from what I saw and he was already running to the right.

    Re: I'm sorry but you can't coach.........

    Fact is, he didn't fight for the first down. That's situational awareness.....the game was over when that first down wasn't made. Need to see the guy try to stay in bounds and fight for the extra yard in that situation, even if it means taking a big hit.

    He got stopped short and pushed out of bounds. The D player stopped him in his tracks.

    I honestly think he lowered his shoulder trying to get to the marker but was just deflected OB. He did take a decent hit.

    The great Bill Callahan once said while head coach of the Raiders, "We have got to be the dumbest team in America."

    Hey, we didn't get called for any PF's today, right? That's a start.

    The undying desire to fight is now lost on our team. They're not always giving 100% anymore.
