    Does "I told you so" apply here?

    I was one who thought JB should be the starter, but he might not be better so.....

    I don't get it. Barnett's performance against Western Illinois was enough to tell me that he's not ready to play QB.
    Might as well give him a chance though.

    Wasn't he playing with the 2nd string O-Line though? And 2nd string Receivers? I saw him roll out time after time, and also receivers were dropping balls (Mostly Bundrage). Although, after tonight, the only thing that I have hope for is DeVondrick Nealy gets some snaps.

    It was a LOL moment when Nealy lined up on the wrong end of the field for the kickoff though...

    Those pointing at the Western Ill game as a reason not to start JB, have no clue what you're talking about.

    One. Game. Look at Oklahoma State last year: Losing a game ugly is tough, but it doesn't define the team or the season.

    This team doesn't have that talent, but this isn't the team we saw in the non-conference. I fully believe they'll be back. Tech wanted this win hardcore, and did everything they needed to get on top. Props to them.

    This is BS. Tech doesn't have better players than we do. They do have a DC who knew what would happen with pressure. Mess failed to adjust. That was the most awful playcalling I have ever seen in the second half. I will have a post up tomorrow before I rewatch and to be honest, I can't wait to metric this thing. there was nothing done to relieve rush. Not a ******* thing.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.

    Actually, based on starzzzzzzzzz, they do. Everyone in the conference does.

    Does an I told you so regarding the receivers apply? No, because the simpletons won't be able to comprehend not blaming just one guy.

    And if I mentioned the offensive line...heads would spin.
