After last night are we facing back2back losses?

Postby Insane_Pony_Posse » Sun Sep 18, 2022 1:31 pm

After last night are we facing back2back losses?

Or is there hope?

TCU shows only one spot better than us, and we have them at home.

We will play who is available, and be ready for Sonny Snake, and the frogs.

We will be ready. Lashlee did a good job preparing our team. He also played to win last night, something that many would not. Playing a more talented team (at least in the P-5 G5 world) necessitates playing with your hair on fire. We did get burned, but I will take the effort and look forward to correcting the mistakes.

Again, with playing as poorly as we did in critical situations, we were still in the game until the final seconds. No victory in a loss, but there is a lot to look forward to.

Beat the mess out of TCU.

The Maryland loss was expected. The game against TCU should still be a win.

The way each team handles emotions early on will be huge for both teams Saturday.

Sure hope you guys are right, but to be honest we are banged up and even if we were full strength I am worried.

Currently, Vegas has TCU a 9.5 - 10 point favorite on the road.

Hope we can find a way to send Sonny running to the tunnel a LOSER!

Every line I'm seeing is TCU -1

Sonny will always be a loser after his behavior/actions last year.

Nope, we have a good team. Clear up the errors, optimize play calling and schemes and get healthy. We win out. Don't even suggest otherwise

I'm sure a bunch of people jumped on that kind of spread and put big money on the Ponies

I thought we handled ourselves very well against Maryland. I thought Taulia looks like a gen-z kid who forgot his adderall compared to us.

Nah Insane Pony you had to have misread maybe eyes blurred things together on a chart. Line opened as a pick ‘em at least on Caesar’s. I don’t think there’s a world where tcu could be laying ~10 points on the road. Like Charleston pony said that’s a LOT of points. I doubt anyone truly knows which way this will go. For the past six months I’ve been telling my TCU brother that we’re gonna stomp em. I’ll just say I’m not as confident now.
I do lean our way but that may be my heart thinking. My logic is hungry dog runs faster, so that loss may have helped our chances this week

Agreed Crispy(Tupy)Taco. I am not a gambler, but took someone's word I shouldn't have about what the line was. That was actually last year's line, and look what happened. We still beat those ugly purple frogs!

Tell me if the Duggan who showed up in their last game will play on Saturday, and I'll tell you how close the game will be.
