Why does everything have to be so black and white around here?

Up until this point, Mark Pope has been a massive disappointment. Period. He has stunk. There is no gray area there.

But he is a talented kid. He's quick, he's fluid, he runs good routes, he gets open. His disappointing and stinking has been solely a byproduct of his complete inability to catch a football. But it doesn't mean he's incapable of making a play and it doesn't mean he's incapable of learning how to catch a football. Hell, if anything, what he lacks IS learnable. You can rep and rep and rep and rep and make yourself serviceable with your hands if you work. You really can't make yourself more athletic, or bigger, or (much) faster. So he's got natural gifts, he needs to somehow figure out how to catch or the staff needs to get him the hell out of the way.

But this notion that the fanbase is going to sit on one side or the other of Mark Pope's production and lob grenades at each other based off whether or not he makes plays this fall.....what the hell are we even doing?

Most fans feel the same way that you do about players like Pope. Most Cane fans are rooting for the young men on this team.
People like Francischise are just social deviates and places like CIS is their safe space. A place where they get to spew their miserable takes 40k plus times over without any real life repercussions. They live on sites like this searching for likes in cyberspace because in real life, people can't stand to be around their miserable asses. Pay them no mind bro. I've got a sneaky feeling Pope is going to have himself a great season this year. And if he doesn't, so be it. Next man up. No need to pound your internet chest looking for cyber validation. Leave that nonsense for the socially awkward grown ass cowards that are hiding out by themselves in their moms and dads condos spewing negative thoughts about the team they claim they love.

Go Canes!!!!
