...was a terrible, unforgivable call. I don't care if you're trying to "be aggressive" or "set a tone". You're down 19, with ~8:00 to go. You need 2 TDs (both with 2 point conversions) and 1 FG to tie. You get 3 points there, you're still in the game. You come away with zero, and it's over. You kick it and live to fight another day.

"But it's just his first game as a HC, he's still learning", you say.

Exactly.

Disappointing for sure, more lopsided than I expected... But can't say I'm shocked.  My heart was saying all week "maybe we shock the world!" but my head said "they probably win comfortably."


There were moments to get excited about though.  Loved seeing a fullback!

Yep, ya gotta keep yourself in the game.  It could be he realized his D was gassed and he was going for broke.  I think it is pretty obvious we just don't have the horses right now.  We just need to focus on getting everybody better these next two weeks and try to scrape together 6 wins.  Gitmo looked better than I have ever seen him.
