Very well said. This game is not played on paper it’s an 11v11 game played 10 seconds at a time. And we have largely the same 11 on each side as we did last year. We still have holes, question marks, and extremely thin depth at key spots.Different circumstances bare different responses. One size does not fit all...
Yall genuinely misunderstand my stance because most of yall too far to the extreme on one side or the other.
I believe we’re going to have a good season but I’m simply cautioning for people to just be a little reasonable & not set expectations too high because it’s unfair to a brand new coaching staff.
Expecting 10-2 out the gate is unfair & expecting 11-1 or 12-0 in year 1 is absolute lunacy.
It’s very rare historically for any staff to come in & win a conference in year 1, I’ve said numerous times that by year 2 & 3 we should be competing for the conference (if we’re still in it) without question, but to set the bar too high right out of the gate is not fair to Mario & this staff, mainly because people are underestimating the flaws on the roster & completely overlooking that the majority of the roster is still Diaz recruits, Mario hasn’t even had a chance to overturn the roster in the way that he wants.
I’m on board & have been for several months now, but to you guys who have such super high expectations anybody that even remotely suggests just a little bit of reason looks like they’re not, which is part of the funny part of it to me lol.
I never once said we suck or were going to lose a bunch of games, I simply said people should just be a little reasonable & somehow that’s transformed into me “not believing” lol.
Fans seems to forget that Games are not played on paper & on a week to week basis there’s several unforeseen variables that factor into to outcomes of games that go beyond just coaching, or talent. Games are independent Solar Systems unto themselves, I’m of the belief that taking things week by week is a better approach than just simply assuming things that haven’t happened yet, but I guess that makes me crazy lol
I think we will improve by a game or two this season but the real determining factor will be how we look when playing our games. I want the games to look like we are winning the games we should decisively even if it’s not reflected in the final score and our losses to be a hell of a fight.
No more coming out flat every game, losing every bye week, and embarrassing losses to 2-3 win nobodies like G5s, Duke, GT, etc.
