Nope……it was that way with Dye also.  1983 was  bit of a surprise.  We thought we would be good…had no idea we would be the best football team in the country by mid-November.

1984-1985….shoot the bed big time and there was a serious movement to fire Dye.  He hired Sullivan and saved his job…but still had some unexplainable losses from 1986-1989.

Direct quote half-way through the 1989 season (made in private):  "If they don't get us this year, we are going to be unstoppable the next three years."  rose to #2 in the AP poll in 1990, lost to UF, Sou. Miss and uat   and promptly shoot the bed for the next two years.

It happens……believe the core of this staff can get it done……they need to remove their heads from their asses and get the kids attention as for the effort required and expected of everyone.

We are currently not in a big mess……but a mess none the less that needs to be cleaned up in a hurry.  I believe Saturday night was a move in the right direction.  Be interesting to see where we are in December.  Those two last games (uga & uat) can cure a lot of ills if we can get our heads screwed on right by then.

While we wait on Lawson the defense should improve. And if he can make it back if could mean we save as much as two possessions limiting the time the opposition has the ball.
Really like White but Gus will start reasserting Johnson more IMO. We might get some improvement from the offense but it will be a far cry from anything we expected especially if the pace and play selection doesn't pick up.

Can't see but 6 wins, 7 if we steal one.

If it makes you feel any better, I really liked what you posted and thought it made tons of sense. Right up until eagleair came on and basically made you look like a big dummy, I thought your post was good.

Honestly as far as I'm concerned the season started with Miss. State.  I want to see growth and movement in the right direction from that point forward. 

If we lose...fine but we better lose with our guts hanging out and the score close.

Ain't no easy way in life. And I can't tell you how I feel about you. I wouldn't swap this year. I watched you struggle and wrestle with those angels, you know. And, I've watched you become men. I've watched you become men.

Well, the few of you that are straight, anyway.
