    I find it interesting that they always quote a defensive player. The defense has kept us in most games all season. It's the offensive that has lost the games for us. Riley Nelson is absolutely terrible. Everyone knows it, but the coaches refuse to give anyone else a chance. Riley makes that one pass to Hoffman at Notre Dame and we win the game. But it is always the same excuse, "We're only two or three plays away." That's all it takes against really good teams, and it is the offense that has given up those plays. What's going to happen next year when Hoffman, Van Noy, and Ziggy are gone and we have the toughest schedule in history? Think this season is bad wait until next!

    What's the key to winning the close games? Tell R. Nelson No More TO's! And if he does, then bench him the rest of the season and think about other backup qb's for 2013.
