    Finding a positive in todays loss.

    The pain of a defeat can often inspire great competitors to dig a little deeper and work a little harder to do what ever they can to avoid that feeling in the future. I know the coaches will somehow use this loss to motivate the players and them selves in the future. It may sound corny but it is very true.

    For me, the biggest positive is not having to watch Tom Herman coach this offense again. Sorry to be snarky.

    The big thing I see is that our team is very young at many spots. Gives me hope.

    Agreed peter. Herman shouldnt even get paid for that performance.

    A chance to get a competent OC.

    West was pretty good on kick returns. That's about it...

    I think we will find out that Herman will thrive at OSU with great receivers to create big plays out of routine plays. I do think that Herman lacks the flexibility to be successful at a school like ISU.

    Re: Finding a positive in todays loss.

    Positives?

    We might be able to do this again next year, and there are some decent young players on the team.

    Then again, I could've said this before the loss today so... yeah. So much for that.


    Edit: Oh, and I can look forward to being mad at a different OC either justifiably for terrible playcalling or unjustifiably when our QB sucks.

    Well, considering Urban likely will be telling Herman what to do, I would be surprised if Herman managed to mess that up.

    However, if he were to truly be the OC and bring his offense/call the plays, I think he would do alright. Herman's offense needs to have better athletes than the defense.
