He hasn't gotten to this point by not being brutally honest with himself.

    So now you don't like Tua as your starter?

    I've noticed that the line on Vegas Insider has been taken off the board on several places. Wonder why that is? Tua will be good to go I'm sure so one has to wonder why.

    Murray has announced that he is not going to play in the game while he gets ready for spring training.

    I feel the same way. And I think this feeling kind of reminds me of how some of us felt when we faced ND in the late/mid 70s and very early 80s.



    In 2002/2003, they were clearly superior and we were racked by probation. Both were understandable losses.

    In Jan 2014, we had just lost in Kick 6 and the argument could be made that our guys had checked out mentally and were not interested in the game. Disappointing but nonetheless the ďteam had checked out mentallyĒ argument seemed to be plausible.

    At least this time, as I see it, there really are no excuses for us not to win. We have the superior team, HC, a shot at a NC on the line and a Heisman snub together to serve as an unbelievable amount of motivation. For once finally all the pieces are there. If we canít get it done this time, then good lord I donít know that we ever will against OU, since we donít get to play them very often anyway.

    Read the twitter posts from current and former players concerning the Heisman.
    I donít think their focus will be a problem.
    Seems to me, more than a few teams with a Heisman winner have been beaten (sometimes badly) in their bowl games.
