    Unlike many, I don't think Aidan has been that bad. His biggest problem is that he's been consistently late on throws -- he's just got to trust his reads and rip it. He looked a little better toward the end of the half. I think Fitz is going to ride him home.

    They are killing themselves on first and second down, getting behind the chains. NU is 4-10 on third downs. Everytime it was less than double-digits, they converted. Unfortunately, they've had more than 10 yards to go six times.

    And hey, NU got a big kick return from Lees!

    Fine... I guess this is the official thread. I tried to make the magic thread, but I'll take it down. Don't blame me if the offense doesn't improve.

    A touchback is a good start!

    I don’t know what Anderson told the OL at halftime, but I hope he remembers it.

    That is why you have to go downfield occasionally.

    I like that we called the old throw the ball short and let the defender run into the receiver play.

    actually can’t attribute that to OL - more matchup/formation and (gasp) doing their jobs.

    also nice running by drake. Wish he could catch and block better, but already a hell of a runner.

    That wind must be really strong. Our kickoffs are in the end zone.
