    If Orms can't go, who are our DBs? Henderson and Olatoye for sure, but after them ??? What about Terrel Smith? Aside from some bonehead ST play last week, he ran down the buckeye kick returner, so he's got some wheels. Can he cover well enough to play nickel?

    Terror was on the field as a nickel back a couple times against CSU as well. I guess he's our best option. I actually like the way he plays. Kid's got a lot to learn though.

    I think I would rather play more base 3-4 and rush the QB. Is Smith our best option back there? I was starting to wonder if we might let Harlos get some time or did we decide to RS him?

    I like him a lot except when he's running into Speedy on punt returns.

    Ugh, there was so much wrong with that play. 1) ****** blocking. 2) ****** decision to try and catch the ball. 3) ****** attempt at a catch. 4) ****** coaching decision to put speedy back there with a hurt shoulder. 5) ****** coachign decision to try a return when we were gonna get pinned back deep no matter what. UBGH.

    I'm pretty sure Harlos has played already. I think he's more of a run stopper than a coverage guy, though. If it's not Terror, then who? Vigo, Morten? I saw a bit too much of Major chasing TEs and RBs in coverage on Saturday, I think an extra DB is needed against Wazzu.

    Yep, that play was FUBAR from the beginning. Why even have a return man back in that situation?

    It's important not to project all of the prior regime's failings on this staff & team. Embo & co. is not -19 on the road. He's 1-3 overall, that's it.

    Embree and co are 0-2 on the road with the exact same problems as the previous staff on the road. That is pretty ******.

    I hear ya, and agree. We're going to have to eat this plate of **** for this season and hopefully not too much longer. I'm saying this as much for me as everyone else, Embo is 1-3 and he's not Hawk. Serenity now, this last game was brutal.
