But we do now, and we don't have to apologize for it, because just look at the record since Cooper got canned
+1 for the insightful comment. Not sure if he has lost the locker room, but you have to see that the WRs are frustrated as hell to not get the ball thrown to them, and I am sure the closeness of team is more frayed than we are seeing. Urban and Chip both said that spread offenses are still very much about prioritizing run first... well, how the hell are you going to run a system like that when you don't have a legit RB + OL. Ed Warinner must not be buying into Gattis' schemes/philosophy, because his line has regressed since last year, which is not like him to accept as a coach (at least from what we saw him do at OSU).
All told, the AD may be forced to make a very difficult decision based on what has transpired since the end of last season and this season. The only card Harbaugh has left is that "everyone knows it takes more than one season to successfully install a new system, so I need another year with Josh Gattis to work this out". Which is not such an easy excuse since Urban went 12-0 with a new spread system --- It just sucks to be a Wolverine. That is all. Have a nice life. lol
It's called a healthy perspective. Don't lose it. The younguns here just don't have a clue of the misery and scarring that it brings, nor do they care to hear our cautiousness, because it is unfathomable for them.
Schadenfreude may be delightful and fun for a while, but in the end, it just means one is enjoying a state of superiority over those who are seemingly below you, and that doesn't make... wait... this is gold! We will remain superior until they get a clue up there that their arrogance is baseless, whereas ours at least has some merit on the football field.
Nice to be recognized on natty tv. Congrats Jason and the 11W crew
A ton too many in my opinion. Tears may be tasty, but I don't need it served up as if I ordered it, when all I have to do is to look at the scoreboards to know that there are plenty tears and meltdowns. They don't deserve my time.
Doubt it. If anyone, it will likely be Pat Chun, a Gene Smith protege - currently at Washington St. Let's just hope he doesn't bring Mike Leach with him...
I predicted 62-0 in the Friday Night Fights post, and sticking to it. I see a lot of practice for field kicking this game after our starters sit the pine midway through the third quarter
We will win 62-0 with our backups in midway in the 3rd Q. I see our backups having almost the same if not better stats than the starters.
Mike Leach for president...of mascots or something.
What's weird for me to see through the first 3 games is how the linebackers alignment on the field remind me of Michigan's scheme when Mattison was the DC. This makes total sense of course, since why would he reinvent his scheme if it has worked so well, but humurous to me since I wondered what we would have been able to do with a Michigan defensive scheme last year... IDC - it works and so long as it continues to work and adapt and keep OCs guessing wrongly, I'm all for it!
Kyle has the gift of making us all feel smarter in football. Thanks Kyle!
I loved that we went from power spread as a buzzword to we are like Sean McVay and his hot offense in the pros... like what recruit wouldn't want to be part of that???
