    Interesting comments by Tort in the Gazette today.

      Not a big fan of many of Tort's comments.

      * If Mike Nash wasn't an outgoing player I doubt he gets called out like that -- deserved or not. Bus ... Meet Mike Nash.

      * The comment of they'd beat Shepherd 7-8 times out of 10 games? Come on. You don't get 10 chances. You got one. At home.

      * Same with West Florida. You don't get 10 chances. You got one. At home. In cold weather. And, (as somewhat usual) started slow.

      * It's pretty clear they will be QB shopping. But, that was expected.

        Players have to pay attention to details. A little detail like not lining up at the hash mark corresponding to the wide side of the field and not backpedaled to cover the deep middle third of the field disrupted the defensive scheme. Give credit to Badget for spotting it and taking advantage of the lapse. The coaching staff has all year to figure it out. They need to just forget about the Foosball for the next couple of days and enjoy the Thanksgiving with family and friends. I would look for them to bring in an OL transfer to round out the line. Maybe a DL transfer to help anchor that side of line.

          Coach sounding a little sore and salty. Not a great look.

            I don’t like coaches calling players out in public at this level, he blamed Haynes before.

            I’d say the over/under for next season is 7-4

              I wonder if they are blaming Nash for the whole final drive, too?

              Or, the 99- and 98-yard drives they gave up in the first half?

                If someone saw him in the wrong position, why didn't the coach tell him to move?

                  Whatever happened to "It's on me" or "We win as a team and we lose as a team", or other coachspeak? It's never 1 guy's fault. And to not know who it actually was and call out the true freshman Haynes initially is not a good thing.

                  I'm not really big on the QB comment, either. Can we say good things about Davis, or not?

                  Oh, well, Happy Thanksgiving.

                    Sounds like Torts is a bit salty. Well he should have had his team better prepared. Losing two straight home playoff games is totally unacceptable.

                      He didn't. That's on me. I watched the replay after the game and erroneously assumed it was Haynes because it looked like he was late getting over to the play. But it wasn't his fault. Actually, Tort told me Haynes had a really good game. My fault.

                        Thanks for the info, Matt. Since it is Thanksgiving I would also like to thank you and the IG for all the great coverage of IUP football. I think it's safe to say that none of the other PSAC teams enjoy the kind of hometown coverage you guys provide.

                          Is there a home field advantage? Maybe a Florida team in December coming north.

                            I agree as well. Thank you Matt for your coverage of the Football team!

                              No apologies needed Matt. I thought the same after watching the TD a few times myself.

                                Well, whether it was Tort or Matt---it was WRONG to call out a player like that. I hated reading that in a newspaper print. I don't ever recall Frank, Tep or Curt doing anything like that. It that was a writer's bad phrasing then that needs to be cleared up in the paper IMHO. It made Tort look pretty bad.

                                But beyond that---Matt did do a fantastic job throughout the season as did Jack and the broadcast team.
