    As a Purdue fan that suffered through too many losses to Woody --- I'd kick his tombstone but I'd likely just break my foot.

    Re: Someone needs to light a fire under this team!

    I definitely get your point Rem...this team is NOT playing to its potential, regardless of its record.

    With an eye towards the playoffs (where sub-.500 teams do not exist), this team plays poorly against quality teams.

    Will they turn it around? We can only hope. Can they turn it around? They definitely have the talent to do so.

    without question, injuries have hurt this team....but guess what, teams have to deal with injuries and you better be ready or you're in trouble. When Votto went down last year other players picked up the slack and this team went on a tear....so a team can overcome injuries. Granted the pitching wasn't peppered with injuries last year....but unlike the position players last year the 'pen has not stepped up this year.

    Despite the record, this team is not ready to win in the playoffs. I'm just glad the playoffs aren't here yet, giving this team time to get some players back and make a run. If they don't, it'll be a sad October and an incredibly underachieving year.

    Remdog, I wish you could be the one to deliver the speech, it was a pretty darn good one.

    Ah, another smart-alec comment by the big banana slug himself.

    NO one mentioned Woody Hayes in this thread until you but I would bet he would have stepped on a few banana slugs like you. You're constant smart-cracks aren't funny and I'm getting tired of your insults, innuendoes and cheap-shots.

    I used to consider you a friend and a good poster. No more. It's time to steifel yourself.

    I'd have to check to make sure, but doesn't remdog do this exact type of post nearly every season?

    Rem, do you have work issues you want to let the rest of us know about? You always want someone to be set on fire or something.

    Was about to post the same exact thing.

    Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
