I know that Gunnell is a beloved alum but this isnt a one game thing. And while other factors loom much larger he really can't point to the Birmingham Bowl as a success.

This. He does some dumb shit, but he's got two more years. He's better than any QB to play here since at least Rettig already, and that is generous to Rettig.


This. He’s more than a big arm. He goes through his reads. For every sack he takes doing so he makes three great plays.

What the fuck are you strawmen talking about? This is no different than Teddy talking about us having a dominant D or Dick saying he wished that we hired Brian Kelly away from ND. I say plenty of stupid shit to not have to fabricate statements. For the record, Sam Johnson was the guy I was hoping to see if Jurk didn’t get a waiver or his psychiatrist failed to talk him out of a position change.

Can we agree though, that these attempts to get the ball in his hands are terrible? It's just getting too obvious.

It is really disappointing after the ridiculous betting lines this week that BC would shit themselves worse than I have witnessed since the Henning era to prove Vegas right. BC is not great at a lot of things in football, but losing like this is something I am not used to after 40 years.

Football is humbling. This morning many “experts” thought we were a program on the rise and poised to knock off a double digit, ranked favorite on the road. Tomorrow those same guys will point out that we’re 2-2 in conference with a one point home win against a weak Pitt team and a lucky win against an abysmal TX State.

We are laying a big egg tonight. As usual, we’re better than this but worse than our expectations.

Pointing out he might win it if he stops dropping the ball and jumping off sides, like you predicting things.

I was fine with that as I had seen enough of Grosel last year to know he wasn’t the answer.

What are you talking about then? Is any sane person thinking QB is a question mark with this team?

Were the players reading their press clippings all week? Reminds me of 05 or 06 when we went to UNC thinking that we'd run them over.

You aren’t watch the game. He jumped once and hasn’t had many drops at all. Zay Flowers isn’t the reason we are losing. But your “great” D is probably a factor.

You guys still hoping for Lukabu to be the next head coach when Hafley is hired by the Jets?

A sound thrashing.

Feels like the equivalent of grounding into an inning ending DP with the bases loaded to end the first against a great pitcher, who settled down and takes charge. Those first two turnovers really changed everything.

He had two drops. He jumped off sides once. You are a miserable douche that is rooting for BC to lose badly so you can brag on a website with 3 posters. All facts.

PS I said the D was playing well for a shitty defense.
