    I posted this on another board, may as well do it here too.

    Last night, we saw what a competently coached, properly prepared and motivated football team can achieve. The Iowa players were basically laughing at our team almost from the outset. Their body language showed they knew there was no chance we were going to beat them.

    I can remember, as I'm sure most of you can also, when that was us. That was us the last time we played Iowa.

    Clay Helton is sucking all the joy out of something that has to varying degrees, brought me happiness for over 55 years.

    Soccer anyone?

    I think of Helton as a camp counselor.

    This is pretty much it...minus a few years for me. No joy to be found in watching that on the field. Profound sadness actually.

    Helton should be a middle school gym teacher in suburban Houston

    A person who is making a living by swindling millions of dollars from you every year has no integrity.

    I've worked with den mothers. I know lots of den mothers. Clayton isn't qualified to stitch the britches of a real den mother.

    The thing to do is BOYCOTT this farce until helLton is canned.

    IMO Bohn, Folt and BoT cannot withstand the optics of an empty Coli. It is a showcase of their incompetence on a national scale. Greatness and tradition cannot be shoved under the rug as easily as they think it can. It’s all about putting pressure on them. BOYCOTT.

    Can’t remember being so unenthused about getting home to watch a USC bowl game, as I was yesterday.

    Felt like prepping for dinner with in-laws, going to the doctor, or attending a funeral.

    Some people lead and some follow. He just does not seem to have a feel for football. He does what everyone else was doing 3 years ago. How long does it take to figure out Penderghast is not doing the job anymore, does Helton need to be told everything.

    Looking back last years coaching staff was maybe the worst ever assembled in college football, with Tee Martin calling the plays, grandpa coaching the o line, Pendergash and Baxter ready for their new Winnebago. All great guys , but totally in the 90s with football sense

    Like he had something to do with that.
    USC won that game in spite of his efforts to do everything he could think of to lose it.
    Sam Darnold and Deontae Burnett and Darreus Rogers and Ju Ju and Mike Hutchings and Leon McQuay won that game..
    Just STFU akread. No one is interested in your Bullshyte

    Wasn't that the game where Penn State scored TDs on 7 straight possessions? Iowa was on pace to break that record last night until Stanley shanked a few easy throws. LMAO that Stanley is an NFL QB. Easy game plan should have been to force him to make throws against press coverage. But, like clockwork, lets give 10 yard cushions and easy throwing windows to a QB who has accuracy issues - broken record......

    It's not the players it is the coach. I have tried to support CH but can no longer do it. SC has 17-18 4/5 star starters with an additional 15-16 4 star players with playing time. We should never be so embarrassed by a good program with a total of 4-5 4 star players. The reason is a 5 star coach.

    I don't doubt CH is a gentleman and a family guy but we need a coach that the team would gladly "run through a wall" for. That coach is potentially playing for the National Championship.

    Pete Carroll was a gentleman but he was also passionate about winning and incredibly competitive. I was fortunate to have met Coach Carroll and work with his involvement with the Pacific Institute. CC was adamant about establishing a strong base consisting of the Power of Positive Thinking (which was influenced by his mentor Lou Tice of the Pacific Institute); physical and mental strength; and, competition. Remeber Competition Tuesday. Remember the Coliseum sound system rocking the stadium and the team going crazy. These are young men who flourish with emotion. Helton, and the team, show no emotion. It was great seeing the emotion shown when they recovered the onside kick. Not sure if there is a DC who can bring strong base needed to be successful but I would suggest to the new AD that he should go to the vault and find that blueprint that made Pete so successful.

    Sorry for the long post. I have seen enough. Fight On
