I was thinking if there was any one move that would make me breath a sigh of relief...
If after the bowl game Rick announced he is hiring Bill Bedenbaugh from Oklahoma as OC, I'd feel like Jules after he finds out they are sending The Wolf. Oklahoma's system with our defense means next year's ACC championship game is a play-in for the playoffs. One dude could turnaround our fortune's that quick.
I sensed the sarcasm in your original post above. But to answer your question, yes, we are screwed very much under the current leadership. I don't see much changing until major sweeping changes are made. Recruiting is even suffering terribly now.
BTW, what happened to the poster CANE DYNASTY? I haven't seen him post since Jeff Thomas was dismissed.
