    The fact of the matter is we just got beat. In every facet of the game, SIU was better. They are a very good team with very good players and they played a really good game.

    The other fact of that matter is that we are an extremely banged up football team right now. We are without our #1 WR, our #1 TE, our #4 WR, our #2 RB, a starting D-lineman, our starting MLB (leading tackler, team leader), and on top of that Max Busher (Farley's replacement) came out of the SIU game. I mean, come on.

    That was as bad of an offensive performance as I have seen from our team in a long time (actually, since the Iowa State 2010 debacle). Holy crap that was ugly. Sawyer and the receivers have not clicked for the last month, and Sawyer has really missed a lot of throws. The O-line has continually shown an inability to run block for the best offensive player in all of FCS football. They have been unable to get 1-2 yards on crucial plays on multiple occasions this year, they are simply getting blown off the ball.
    Good post--ah somebody with a good perspective on things. Football is a team game and everything is tied to the total package--then you have to factor the other team.
