It's weird because some parts of the roster at least are actually improved, but it certainly isn't showing on the scoreboard.

Let's see who enters the portal now that game 4 is completed. I suspect we saw Hendon Hooker and Quincy Patterson today to see if either one of them is worth keeping and in my opinion they are not. Not if the strength of your team is WR.

Excellent point about the 4th game.

QBs MUST be able to pass effectively - and not just tunnel screens; gotta be able to throw the 12 yard passes. That also helps the running game.

Also, if the current coaching staff can't find a way to inspire these players to WANT to stay, they'll have to find some coaches who can.

VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THE HOKIES SO FAR.

Worst loss in Lane since 1974.

Penn State 59 - Maryland 0. I'm not sure what that tells us about Pitt and Syracuse

I think he may be referring to margin, nothing subjective. The tweet I saw was worst home loss to an unranked opponent since 1974, but perhaps it’s the worst home loss to any team since that year.

If Virginia can't take back the Commonwealth Cup this year they never will.

Clearly Pitt is 95 points better than Syracuse.

Is everybody in Syracuse still at Dinosaur BBQ? I know it's Holy Cross but that place is EMPTY.

11 games on at noon and none of them are interesting. Meanwhile there are 4 interesting ACC games plus a ranked PAC12 matchup at 3:30.

Good to see Hamp Gibbs ATL. I knew his grandfather, who passed away earlier this year. Hamp was a multi-sport star at Augusta Prep.

WMU-CMU is on CBS-SN. That's what I'm watching. I'll probably switch away right around 3:00 (phew, just in time) for Goal Line.

Dude, you cannot miss the comedy that will be on CBS-SN at 3:30! It'll be hilarious.

Oh wait, you mean those visitors to Lincoln Financial Field consider themselves to be a real football team? Oh wow...

Now is the time to make a move up that depth chart if you're gonna. The incoming class has one entire OL (and a backup) in it.

Pitt playing backup QB and RBs today. Not looking very impressive. Pitt 7-0.

Local ABC affiliate (WLOS) is just hammering U-Verse/ATT stuff. They also say Clemson/UNC will not be viewable to ATT/U-Verse customers in the WLOS area ... which includes Greenville-Spartanburg. That won't go over well.
