The biggest impact if they all leaves if that we all have to find a new scapegoat. If we lose them all and somehow manage not to win the NC next year we have to #firethefootballprogram, since we can no longer blame Fick or Beck.

Sadly, this will be the reactionary epicenter now. Yes, the bball team is down. Slow your "hang matta" chants, please. A) it's an early loss, and while it's hideous it isn't who this team will be for the next 20 games. B) Tim Beck thanks you for watching and redirecting. C) Turns out you don't flip the switch and become a Duke/KU. We aren't there. Embrace it.

So you're Gene Smith, AD. You can throw money at an entire new staff of basketball coaches, and pay out for a "Urban Meyer" hire (for a sport that is in the red for the majority of their existence) or keep that money to hire the top assistants for our football staff because you know at least 3 of them (Fick, Schiano, Ed) have head coaching aspirations for a sport that funds the rest of the athletic department (and keeps it in the black).

I may be in the minority, though I suspect I'm not, on this. When our basketball team is relevant and a contender, it's the free dessert I didn't order. It's great and a surprise, and I probably shouldn't expect it the next time we go out. Besides; we went out for the entree (football) anyway. When that goes sideways I get bent out of shape, probably irrationally so. The dessert? Take it or leave it. I'm already looking forward to the next season's entree.

It'd be nice if any of our receivers could come close to simulating Sammy Watkins, at some point.

Comment 06 Dec 2016

Kenny G will be busy coaching Houston for their bowl game (unless he follows Coach Herman to Texas, though I'm not sure how that works for GAs), I don't think he's available.

Comment 05 Dec 2016

Wasn't the argument for not putting Boise in one of the BCS games a few years ago that they hadn't played anyone? Peterson seemed to embrace that role, maybe he can harness some of that again. That being said, Saban/Bama are not in the same category as Stoops/OK. I hope they give them a game, but I wouldn't bet money on it.

Always thought Helfrich was a stand up guy. Much like Strong. It's too bad some of these guys can't succeed running a program. Wish him the best as our assistant OC, though. 

Comment 26 Nov 2016

Our special teams are a liability, in general. Coverage has been pretty good but has given up a few kickoff returns for big yardage. And remember when we used to be able to block kicks? Feels like eons ago. 

Comment 08 Nov 2016

Meh. If we win out, we are in. If not, we are out. Strength of schedule is a non factor. Just something to fill the space and justify early/meaninglessness CFP rankings. It'll work itself out
