Monday Water Cooler Talk....

Interesting Spurrier Quotes...

"I don't want our fans to boo, but please don't clap when we come close," Spurrier told reporters on Friday. "I think it sends the wrong message. Our guys thought we'd done something pretty good, when in essence we didn't do anything but let a game get away that we were in a position to win."

"I don't know if any coach has ever told our fans, 'Please don't clap after we get beat. Even after the Clemson game (a 13-9 loss in 2005), they were clapping like, 'Well, we thought we were going to get clobbered and we didn't get clobbered. So that's OK.' It's not OK. We had a game we had a chance to win ... and we didn't do it."

I have to agree with him b/c we have to change the thinking of the team and of the fans....every game we should think we can win! Comments....

Stat of the weekend

Northern Illinois running back Garrett Wolfe was busy putting on a show for the 10,128 folks gathered at Scheumann Stadium in Muncie, Ind. Despite being interrupted by a 55-minute weather delay during the first quarter, Wolfe rushed for 353 yards -- the 13th-highest total in Division I-A history -- in NIU's 40-28 win over Ball State. And that after his first two carries of the game both lost yardage. All of a sudden, Wolfe is within range of a record many college football fans thought would never fall. Barry Sanders averaged an astounding 238.9 rushing yards per game in 1988, and no player has even reached 200 ypg in a season since then. After five games in 2006, Wolfe is averaging 236.2 yards on the ground. Sure, it hardly seems conceivable to keep up this pace, but if he stays anywhere close to his current clip of 9.3 yards per carry, anything's possible.

I def. agree with coach spurrier. I was in the stands after the game telling people around me to stop clapping and asking why they were clapping. It pisses me off when carolina fans are so happy with being mediocre. We beat the spread, whoopdyfuckingdo. we are not going to be a good team until the mindset changes. yeah we thought we were going to get killed and we didnt but we lost. the name of the game is to score more points than the other team and we didnt. so we shouldnt be happy about a moral victory. i encourage all readers of the LOHD to start giving fans nut shots who cheer for losing efforts.

Well you know the difference between Florida and USC are.

Florida expects to Win against everyteam, Carolina expects not to lose that bad against ranked teams. If auburn was playing Alabama, would they be happy to cover the spread or
