Fired Bill Carmody: Third straight win over a previously undefeated BCS team

Third straight win over a previously undefeated BCS team

i will be the first to say i thought there was no effing way this team would start 6-1 after losing Coble. i honestly don't think anyone thought that would happen, especially after watching NU struggle against Butler and TSU.

now we get to see if the Northwestern schedule delivers the wins it was designed to bring. following a break for final exams, NU finishes off 2009 with four non-conference home games against teams who are currently 9-15. it will be very important that this team "wins the games it is supposed to win." it's probably true that expectations are now higher than they were a few weeks ago, but not quite back to where they were before losing Coble and Ryan.

obviously we'll take a road win any time, but NC State was projected to be, is, and will be terrible this season. the Wildcats took care of business against a lesser team, and that's what they need to do in their next four games.

if NC state is supposed to be a "lesser team" why were they favored against NU? even in a decisive win against a 5-0 team at home you find a way to be negative. nuts to you buddy.

it might be time to pull the plug on anonymous comments, between this persistent moron and the chinese porn links in the comments of your last post (although i'm sure AC appreciated those)

that didn't seem like a negative post at all, to me.

even if nc state is terrible, how often does NU go on and win by double digits?

i think big ten season will (obviously) answer a lot of questions, but these last three games have been pretty damn amazing.

@ Loretta8... Speaking as another "anonymous" (don't have gmail and don't want to start an account to post on this shit blog), from what I've seen, the "persistent moron" is about the only person with anything intelligent to say.

Fuck AC.

@ Loretta8: your wish is my command. our old friends Anonymous will now have to go through what is apparently the very arduous process of creating a Google/OpenID account.
