Since the team is so "woke", perhaps they should adopt a new motto....In that spirit I suggest the title of a book written by African revolutionary Franz Fanon:

"The Wretched of the Earth"

Welp Tommy, I say Tommy because you sure as hell haven't been Thomas or even Tom today--- you might be coaching for your job today. This could be the game that starts the downward spiral or keeps the wolves at bay.

Whatcha gone do?

A colonialism book without pictures to color? Do we have any kids smart enough to finish that book?

40 seconds defense. We've got the best Kicker in the conference. Just get us to overtime.

You were saying?
Ok, ok. Sorry, I was out to dinner for my daughters 16th. I’m stunned. I’m disappointed. I still stand by the over reaction at the time, when we were winning. No excuse for what has happened since then.
I see we just tied it. At this point, get the win and go home.

I'm firing up my PlayStation after this and playing NCAA football 2010. Gotta see if I can score as many points on that as we gave up today.

Happy sweet 16. I hope that new corvette you had to buy her didn't cost you an arm and a leg.

In a brief synopsis, the status quo for this team is still firmly in place.

Something you have to understand astro-- you can see all the tiny little minutiae building during the early parts of a game that are going to play a much larger role as the game goes on. It's little bitty things. Most people see the minor stuff that helps to lead to momentum shifts etc-- but it's those little things that set off alarm Bells in my head.

I'm not the only person that sees these tiny little things. Some people may see it as my being critical of the team-- but it's not about that. It's recognizing the patterns of minute little mistakes that have become the norm under Herman and his staffs. And when those little things show up in a game, it's almost like a butterfly beating its wings in Africa. At some point that hurricane hits our coast. I just see it coming earlier than some folks.
And when you keep seeing the SAME tiny mistakes over and over and over for years, and nobody is coaching those mistakes, teaching kids to clean them up, invariably they rear their head later in the game.

We are still making those same tiny mistakes early on that end up putting us in sh!t situations like this.

So does it concern anyone that Cameron Dicker is the only thing keeping Tom Herman employed?

The only thing that gives me a tiny bit of hope is that the last couple weeks seems like everyone has struggled the last couple weeks. OU got beat, LSU got beat. UGA struggled with ark. Tech, k state and Iowa state struggled last week ok state struggled with Tulsa

I get it, I get it.
I respect your perspective because you come from being a former player.
There must be something Covid in the water across the country because top ranked teams are dropping like flies.
Be somewhat happy we aren’t one of those.

Yeah there are too many teams struggling in games you wouldn’t expect them to struggle in to think that the lack of practice, contact and off season training has zero effect. Especially with teams who have new coordinators. I mean Chris Ash really hasn’t had a chance to coach these guys in hard tough practices. No spring ball, no real summer camp. It would be ignorant to think that has zero impact.

Lap dances from Ohio Strippers?
Gotta give him something damn

so without Dicker he’s 0-3 against OU. I think Dicker hit a game winner against k state once to
And they lose today if not for a beautiful onside kick. Like seriously Dicker is keeping Tom Herman employed.
