    I've read too many Register articles to this. Care to give me a quick run down?

    Klenakis must've just been a huge douscher.

    Re: Tom Farniok comments in the Rag

    The O-Line is key this year IMO. If they can protect the QB on a regular basis, the offense could be great.

    Now for the defense...

    Re: Tom Farniok comments in the Rag

    I think Farniok's comments echo exactly what many posted at the time how awful Klenakis and Mess were.


    It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    Man, these guys really hated Coach K and Mess. IMO, that suggests there actually could be a significant improvement this year, as perhaps the biggest problem wasn't a lack of talent.

    Offense could be average. But still a huge step up from years past.

    Don't forget many on this board who also blamed Bill Bleil for last year's O-line performance.

    Re: Tom Farniok comments in the Rag

    Offense could be average. Defense looking to be not good. How does this translate in the Big 12 with lots of points being scored....(just paraphrasing post here) I am worried to be honest. Still hoping for a miracle (6+ wins)

    I hate coach speak and player speak. Probably said the same thning before last season.

    We gave 110%. Total team effort. It was us versus our coaches out there, they wanted to grind our self-motivated players into the ground, and de-emphasize unity.

    It's all just player speak...

    So is the Register a bad newspaper?


    When you find that one show that connects you to the world, you become someone different. Someone better. When that show is taken from you, what do you become then?
