Explain how you can go to the Cuse forum and deal with those dudes and this guy gets on your nerves.

It helps:
recruiting
fan base enthusiasm
national respect
our realignment profile
player confidence, player enthusiasm, and player trust in Diaco

In short, it helps everything.

Exactly, the big help is that playing the best of the AAC tough and beating them shoots us up the CR ladder. Other than BYU, no other G5 brand is even close to us. If we appear to be returning to respectability in football it is a major help in perception. Just look at how much more gracious the announcers were this week after we played tough against ECU. We went from "reeling" to "putting it all together" and "having some real playmakers".

Yep! After every game palatine criticizes BD for not starting Boyle
Not surprisingly that is completely incorrect. Also not surprisingly a number of numbskulls agree with you.

I criticize Diaco for not giving Boyle a fair chance. But I'm sure that flies over your head. Were you upset when Foxx got snaps?

Too bad you can't enjoy the win. Instead, you have to be so small minded.

What evidence do you have that Diaco hasn't given Boyle a fair chance? Do you get to see what the coaching staff has seen from 3 months practice?

I think we got a peak of what our offense is going to look like next year with the read option and Foxx under center.

Isn't Foxx a senior?

Yes, but Sheriffs and Davis are dual threat QB's that like to run. I have a hard time thinking this staff will box up these guys like Washington does with RGIII

Completely agree with this. Even Whitmer ran the read option a few times and did OK on a few. It seems pretty likely to me that read option is going to be a decent portion of our offense going forward.

And Palatine, you have been such a massive tool this season to date. I think a lot of people are almost as happy to see you eating crow as they are for the win. Boyle may be good someday for us (and I hope he will be) but he has had chances and Whitmer has been consistently better. And not only that but Whitmer has actually improved (when you said he had already shown us everything he could do). Check out his completion rate and TD-INT ratios this year. Notice anything?

As long as they don't lose another game this season, they still have a shot at bowl eligibility.

I couldn't care less what class Foxx is. If he can move the goddam ball, he should be our read-option QB and get a heavy workload. From what we've seen in Temple garbage time and today against UCF, he can move the goddam ball.

Love the way Ron Jon ran today too. That dude is a beast and is only going to get beastier.

To be fair, I think SDH is enjoying the win. He just wants to enjoy it at your expense.

Yes. Foxx is a senior, and therefore be shouldn't be taking snaps from Boyle. (According to palatine's logic)

Even though most people can see:
1) Whitmer/Foxx give us the best chance to win.
2) Boyle is not going to be our QB. Wrong system.

There is a certain topic that is banned here but assuming Boyle is getting snaps next year, I think he's splitting time with Sherrifs who is more suited for the offense we will likely be running.

To be accurate, I have never seen Palatine eat crow. Sure, it's force fed to him from time to time, but voluntarily eat it when called for? Not so much.
