Re: Coaches

+1 - 72, l agree 100 percent. Exciting, play to win football and fiery Coach Tubby made me a BH fan to begin with. I’d love the same type spirit to return. Winning is always good, but boring unaggressive football is still boring and will not win any championships. Time will tell if anything has chan...

Re: Welcome Coach Yahner!

Wayne, I love your enthusiasm! Sad to say the last several years have taken a heavy toll on mine. I’m not going to get too excited about the upcoming season until there is some excitement shown in team play on the field. I’ve not seen a shred of creativity, passion, excitement, or aggressive play fr...

Re: JMU vs NDSU tomorrow

I’m not rooting for either team but will be watching the game. It will be the toughest game of the season for both teams so should be a good game. Turnover battle will probably be decisive. NDSU has, by far the better fans so I wouldn’t care one bit if they win again. As stated above, don’t like it,...

Re: Transfer QB possibility?

Don’t waste one of the few precious scholarships left on a QB. We need good, ready to play D1-level linemen. If we don’t have quality QBs on the team roster already, we definitely need a new coaching staff.

Re: Weber State Sacks

From watching the playoff games, especially the past couple years, the teams making deep runs all are pretty balanced teams on both the offensive and defensive sides, play fast pressure defense with a lot of man coverage (very little soft zone coverage) with quick & strong who continually pressure t...

Southeast Louisiana would put 70 up on Delaware, they have a bus load of speedy play makers
They also have a bus load of big school transfers as a good portion of those play-makers.

Re: FCS Playoffs

Nova lost their top two DBs to injury in the first half. That had a lot to do with their loss; replacements could not cover SE La very speedy receivers in second half. Reminded me of how we lost the 2010 NC game in second half following key injuries.

Re: “The focus hasn’t been on winning...”

Well said, UD27; very similar to what HenJohn also stated: "It's not just the losses, but the way they've lost games." Plus for some reason consistently playing worse as the season nears the end for the past several years. I would much rather see the reverse, starting slow and growing into a good, s...

Re: Transfer QB?

With the few remaining scholarships available, forget the transfer QB (DB doesn't have a real good track record on that front since being here); we need to bring in a couple of Gino Gradkowski's on the OL and Shawn Johnson's on the DL. If we don't improve the OL, we all know it doesn't matter who's ...

Re: CAA NUMBERS

Those conference stats just put a huge exclamation point on the level of play we’ve all watched this year thus far. There is no sugar coating or logical excuses that buffer those bottom feeder numbers. Some are on the bottom nationally as well. My disappointment is how we’ve looked and the style of ...

Re: HAPPY VETERANS DAY

Wayne, thanks for posting and thanks for your own service to the country. I may be a “boomer” but the young soldiers I led from the front always kept me feeling young!!! Best regards and tremendous respect to all our fellow GoHens veterans and thank you for your service.

Re: The third down call

Tenn, you keep referencing having the Whitney construction completed on time and blaming folks for incompetence for not having it completed for this season. I don’t think the plan was ever to have everything finished in time for this season. My understanding was a two phase/two year plan all along f...

Re: Help me with these questions-Really

Joe C, I understand your point on why Cosh is back to 3 man line, BUT..... with no one playing any semblance of downhill defense and the CBs consistently playing 10 yards off receivers, the D is still getting routinely gashed. It’s especially bad against QBs with the ability to run. As an old WR, I ...

Re: Sacks

Larry, we’re all feeling the same level of frustration for all the same reasons. With the loss of so much experience from last year, I really didn’t know what to expect this year. However, I did expect improved team play as the season progressed. We haven’t seen that at all. In fact, the totally uni...

Dan, your articles keep getting better and better. Keep churning them out, you have a ready-made following on GoHens.
