    He needs this one.
    I’m well aware…they will be fine today. Cal is as average as I’ve seen them the last 20 years. Just don’t let 12 beat you, they don’t have much else

    Regardless of today's outcome, this is the perfect season for IUP to lose to Edinboro or Gannon.

    I had a view of that cemetery for three years. My room at Oakland Hall faced it. A lot of crazy stuff happened on that hill at night.

    Probably means that QB Hunter will run more rather throw in the wind. Do or die game for IUP.

    I’m hopeful they can piece together their first good game this season today. Happy homecoming and let’s go IUP!

    Five days later, I wouldn't bet this game with real money under any circumstance.

    Would it shock me to finally see IUP look like IUP again and rough up the Viet Mon? No.

    Would it shock me to see a crappy, hungover effort and IUP get blown out again? No.


    My final assessment after a week of what-ifs:

    The players have to win this game. Cal is going to out-coach them and out-scheme them. Cal will be better prepared in scouting and in the details. They are just a better-coached program.

    But, IUP is deeper and has at least the same talent level (and is deeper).

    IUP's OL has its hands full. If IUP were to win, they have to have their best game of the year (by a mile). Karst has to throw the ball away instead of forcing it. Throw it in the bleachers. Whatever.

    I actually think IUP will win today. But, betting real coin on them, right now, wouldn't be a wise play.

    I wasn’t going to go to the game, but I’ve decided to give it a shot. I’ll probably regret it and wish I went hunting instead.

    I do believe IUP has a chance, but I have them as a home underdog +6. I think Cal is the better overall team. They beat a VERY good Kutztown team and really could be undefeated if it weren’t for the heartbreaker at Shepherd. IUP hasn’t beaten a good team and has looked pretty bad against the two teams they lost to. IUP has a history of finding a way to win games just when you think they’re down and out, but I don’t see that from this group.

    Happy homecoming. Off to the parade.

    It's disgusting that Tort has blamed everyone and anything but himself. Not being up for a game? Come on, get real! It's not X's and O's? So you're saying the players suck? Tell that to them and it would also mean YOUR recruiting sucked too. This season is a disgusting mess and if the coach can't take some of the blame then they will never get better.
    Coach Tort has no ideal how far that would go if he and the coaching staff verbally tell their team they can take some of the blame. They would respect them, and probably be motivated to play better.

    Yeah, the coach has to figure out what's wrong, not sure what every one wants him to say other than we have to be better. SRU played really well. If a team has better players on game day, not much a coach can do. This isn't the first year IUP has had transfers not perform up to expectations, and IUP have a lackluster year because of it. I don't expect Tort to publicly call people out, or do an "its all my fault" moment. I expect him to fix it. Fixing it would mean winning out, and getting 1 or 2 playoff games, preparing to do better next year with many returning starters. Not fixing it will be Losing 1 or 2 more games, and go into spring hoping to reload by Fall.
    Well, he's been talking about 'fixing' things since Week 1. It's now Week 6 and the same things are still broken.

    In the past 6 games, this program has been blown out twice, is 3-3 and is 0-3 vs teams with winning records. Those are facts.

    This OL isn't going to be fixed by tomorrow. Karst will toss 1-2 picks tomorrow. Question is can they do enough to overcome their shortcomings (including making extra points)? And, ... that does come down to X's and O's.

    Jack may be blamed if they lose tomorrow. Running out of options.
