    Mike is on the local radio recalling the beat down they took from ND his freshman year...51-0. Later that night, at 3AM, Marv is pounding on his dorm room door telling him to report downstairs. After all the other underclassmen are down there, he starts yelling at them to make a promise that they’d never lose to ND again. At 3AM!

    Now Marv was one of a kind, but it’d sure be nice to see a speckle of that fire and passion come out in practices with this staff. Faith, Family and Football is nice, but where’s the brimstone and fire???

    That's called a lawsuit today...

    Kids now need counseling after a beatdown like that. Have some compassion.

    I don't know what in the world you're talking about. I'm positive I heard some of that Marv Goux fire right at the end of Coach Helton's statement expressing concern about the whole 18 penalties thing, and how they were going to have two whole practices during the off week in order to address it. Grrr.

    The difference is Marv was fired up all the time, not just when the team made mistakes. He certainly bled cardinal and gold no matter what. Scolding players after the fact doesn't do much more than make the player feel lousy for the moment. Marv would be in your face all the time. He was keeping that fire hot all the time.

    Heavens, no. Can't have any "microaggressions" in this day and age, smh. Must be why no physical practices are ever scheduled...exceeds the maximum weekly allotment of microaggressions.

    That and displays of "toxic masculinity" are something postmodernists, rampant in universities, frown upon, these days.

    But those were different times. The Chinese people didn't care about SC football.

    Sound like something coach O might have done. He is a touch of the way it was done when football was not such a finesse game. The brimstone and fire has been missing from the program for years. I feel the game has changed to the point that these snowflake players are running most of these teams. Watching Thursday night football Odell beckham JR decides to walk off the field before halftime without his team after taking Sh!t about his teammates on the national stage. Guy should of been benched for the second half. But God forbid we hurt anyone's poor feelings. I feel we missed out on a old school teacher. Coach O.

    And those players didn't lose to ND again. It took 7 years before ND won again.

    After a bye week are the players in touch with their feeling on game day?

    Time to jump out of the foxhole and crush the Buffalos!
    Fight 'On!

    Most ops here don't tie into Seatle'Trojan' s excellent historical post. 60's best decade in one century of CFB and SC FB. McK and Goux, Mike and juice.
