    If we dont make a bowl game with this defence both Mess and Bleil need to be FIRED.

    Seems like a good guy and wish it would have worked out, but definitely need to do this.

    Re: Fire Mess

    Maybe I am missing something here, but to me it doesnt seem like the problem is our play calling. It is our QB play. I lost count of how many lob passes Barnett attempted and failed on.


    If you cant dazzle them with brilliance; baffle them with bull****.

    Re: Fire Mess

    I don't know about firing him, but he sure didn't call a good game after that first drive.

    Re: Fire Mess

    Fully agree. He might be a good positions coach but he isn't a BCS offensive coordinator.

    Re: Fire Mess

    Mess is a problem, but far from the only one. Some of his plays might actually have a chance of working if we had an OL, receivers that could catch, and a QB that could play the position.

    Re: Fire Mess

    Is Mess the play caller? If so, yes, he needs to go.

    There were so many times where Barnett would pick up 10+ yards on the ground, and then throw three straight incompletions. Horrid play calling.

    Re: Fire Mess

    How do you know that play calling is the problem? How do you know it isn't execution that is the problem?

    Re: Fire Mess

    Too many drops. Too many toss-up throws in the middle of the field. Too little run play calls. Penalties. Same Cyclone offense as last week.

    Re: Fire Mess

    Don't know what the answer is, but the offensive production is unacceptable for the level we need to be at. It is sickening to waste klein and knott's last year on this crap.
