Manny Diaz learning from mistakes. He knows he will have to enforce curfew. Maybe suspend a player or 2 maybe kick a player or 2 off the team (like Butch did),. It sends a message to the entire team to straighten up and fly right. When players see other players f_cking up they think they think they can do the same things. It is urgent as a leader to send a clear message that is not the case. Then once the other players see the way things will go they will all fall in line and follow the leader(s)

Too many players breaking curfew and partying too much. That is why this team came out of bye weeks playing like sh!t! Ed Reed was brought onboard to show these players how a hall of famer does it. Players need to know how to separate when to party and when to be totally prepared. Ed Reed knew how to separate the two.

Some don't want to hear this. Manny encouraged the U to change its drug policy. In life these youngsters need to have their priorities straight. All of us working class adults have had to pick and choose when to party and when to be prepared to go to work. These youngsters need to learn to separate the two as well. Some us have jobs that have zero tolerance on drugs. These youngsters need to know that their job depends on their focus and consentration. what is right and wrong, when to party and when not to, set priorities. Do you want to succeed or fail? The path is there for them to take!

Those of you in this thread who have not lead big departments or divisions or football teams. Those who have not lead anyone (leading people in a different environment or small teams can be very different). Those who do not have experience in leading big groups of youngsters in this thread just need to STFU because until you lead a group of young men you have a great deal of learning to do yourself.

We look liked **** in a lot of 1st quarters but after the bye was especially bad. Outscored 48-3 in the first quaters of the N. Carolina, VT and Fiu games after the bye. Is manny giving these guys too much free time in the bye or what?

  • (08/24) Florida: 3-7
  • (09/07) UNC: 3-17
  • (09/14) Bethune: 7-0
  • (09/21) C. Mich: 7-0
  • (10/05) V Tech 0-28

  • (11/09) UL 21-7
  • (11/23) FIU 0-10
  • (11/30) Duke 0-3
  • (12/26) La Tech 0-0

Scoreless in the first quarter: 4 games
Scoring just 3 points in the first quarter: 3
Scoring just 1 TD in the first quarter: 4
Trailing after the first quarter: 4
Total Points For: 72
Total Points Allowed: 89

The offensive production killed us and destroyed momentum. The only game that went like we had envisioned with the Louisville game, where we jumped out to a 21-7 start.
