Look forward to these every week..... Got damn we suck
me said:Basically, this loss was so demoralizing it has them talking about Tom O'Brien's job security again...so we should beat these guys. When a loss to UVA is too much for NC State fans to bear, we better fucking win.Akula Wolf said:And now more questions. Performances like these--especially given the timing--can really begin to turn the tide of public opinion. Frustration was already present. I could feel it simmering in the building, even through the TV. Before I was conflicted in my feelings about the whole TOB era, as I outlined here, and now I guess I'm a little more confused than I had been. Ultimately the results the rest of the way will set the course for the program going into 2013, and if the Pack spends the rest of 2012 just going through the motions, that might be impetus enough to make a change, even if the team gets bowl eligible. If I had to guess, I'd say O'Brien's job is safe unless the Pack finishes out the year with a string of meltdowns like that UVA performance. That would create generous circumstances for "going in a new direction."
4 storylines for UM in this game:
1. Can Miami win the line of scrimmage?
2. Can Miami finally hold an opponent to under 200 yards rushing?
3. Can Miami move the ball on the ground like last week?
4. Will the defense be able to deal with the losses of Johnson, Perryman, and Bush?
the reality of the situation on Saturday is that we were up by 10 points in the mid 4th quarter vs a very bad team. we proceeded to herp and derp our way to a loss that was mind boggling. the coaches FAILED. period.We are a bad team who just lost a game to a team that was favored to beat us.
I guess it is the occasional flashes of good plays that somehow clouds fans' minds into thinking that this is somehow 10 years ago and we should be easily beating other bad teams.
We have the talent/depth/experience of a bottom level ACC team. We have somehow overachieved in a very poor ACC division which we still have a chance to win. Too many fans confus ethics with the reality of the situation.
