The team had 10 rotational players healthy and enrolled in school in August.

99% of the teams in America would see their season immediately end if they lost the three players that we did.

There's no adequate preparation for that.

There's a culture, especially around here, of blaming the coach for everything. Even injuries, ineligibility and expulsion.

It's irrational.
10-3 equals 7 (current situation)
13-3 equals 10 (proper preparation)

I am thinking very rational. Proper preparation starts before the disaster happens. Think ahead.

The lesson to be learned from this season is "use all 13 scholarships".

I disagree because you are allowed to have 13 players on scholarship so it makes no sense to me not to use all 13 scholarships. I don't care if I am the only person using all 13 scholarships, I would always use all 13 scholarships.
Granted, I would only play 10 players but the other 3 scholarships are available for players in the event a catastrophe happens.
Players 11 through 13 aren't going to make a 9-9 team any better than 9-9.

This season ended when those 3 players were lost.

Practically every program in America would have suffered the same fate.

I prefer to be covered in the event the catastrophe happens. Hope for the best and prepare for the worse. Having just 10 or 11 scholarship players leaves you very vulnerable to catastrophes.
This roster with 2-3 Joe Thomas' wasn't going to be better than 9-9.

This is what you seem to be completely ignoring so you can make this totally inane Captain Hindsight argument.
