Cubs playoff game starts at 4:30. If it's a blowout, how empty will the stadium be in the second half?

We all know that Santa is the better QB, looks to be getting better with experience, and the offense is gelling around him. To pull him for Graham would be a crime and a major insult to the team and fans.

I say this with a heavy heart because I like Graham as a kid, and he has given his all for the team. Class guy. He could also develop into a decent MAC QB. It's just that at this time, Santa provides the better option.

It'd be nice if all the alums who came out of the woodwork after the Nebraska game saying how proud they were of Huskie football to actually show it by coming to Huskie Stadium this weekend.

They either saw it on news, local sports show, heard on radio or most likely read about the win on social media. They celebrate wins and great seasons, react on a big loss or pathetic season. Nothing in between. Most, no interest in going to a game anywhere, any time. And actually, the few alumni I know outside looking in go on road trips in place of DeKalb to visit friends/family.

No one cares about football unless it is highly successful, even then most don't go. Social media, boasting about it is their extent. Why they don't go, another story.Topic has been covered more than teen faces with Clearasil.

RE: Kent State - Homecoming Game
That article says "if healthy". Do we know if Graham has been throwing in practices yet? anyone?

If he is, I would love to see him get some game reps in, late in the 3rd or in the 4th quarter. As we know, you can never have too many QBs.
Even if Santa starts for the foreseeable future, at some point this year we will need Graham to carry us, that's one thing I'd bet on.

Given recent history (especially post Harnish and Lynch) I sure would not bet against that! However, it looks like the O philosophy is to limit Santa taking hits; smart move IMO.

RE: Kent State - Homecoming Game
Interesting article

http://www.daily-chronicle.com/lists/201...xml?page=1

Carey singing Huff's praises; I agree, Huff was the better RB v. Penny in the game.

Carey obviously sees the upside to Santa and he hopes (as we do) that he will learn from his mistakes. Trying to read between the lines; is Carey saying if Graham was ready he would start? I am reading it as Carey would go with Santa and will, so long as Santa makes better decisions and limits mistakes.

Where Penny is dangerous is on the outside, he's hard to tackle one on one in space, more so than Huff. I'm surprised they didn't get Penny to the outside more early in the game. Huff gets a lot of tough yards inside, but still gets some yards after contact on the outside and makes nice cuts, using his blocks well. Glad to see Huff is proving my confidence in him the last few years was justified.
