Was a Fun Football Season!

Postby shadowman » Sat Nov 23, 2019 7:24 pm

Hey,

We came out of nowhere, and we were in the conversation until the next to last week of the whole damn season.

I am proud of this team, they did good.

No hate for the coaches or players, we did the best we could.

Great season.

Revision: it remains a fun football season. Tough loss on the road to a good team. See everybody in Dallas next week.

We wasted a great start with horrible play at the end of the season.

Now that is not just the way to go here. Be humble in your loss, we won a couple of games we maybe should have lost.

Enjoy being relevant this deep into the season.

Finish strong, and lets do better next year.

Much love for this team and their effort.

Navy’s team and offense is trash. Out defense was not at all ready to defend the most simple offense on the planet. No excuse.

I’m done doing the golf clap. We should win this game. Not great d and frankly for the first time all year our OC called a terrible game. No need to keep going for broke - we should be 2nd and 5 every time instead of 2nd and 10.

Opportunity to be 10-2 (doesn't happen often) at this time next week. Then on to a bowl game.
Be happy.

Navy has 1 AAC loss -- anything but "trash" -- and lots of teams struggle against that goofy offense - that's why Navy runs it.

All of that said, Shane is the best deep ball thrower in the country. And he flat out missed on 5 or 6 throws. Navy was pressing us tight and letting us get behind. The deep ball is what was open. We just couldn't hit it.

This game we missed having an elite offensive line and a good pass catching RB. It happens. It was predictable.

We are a year ahead of schedule. We have over achieved to a certain extent this year. Enjoy it, root the team on, and know that next year will get even better.

And here’s your participation trophy guys. Not like this season was against awesome competition. Worst aspect for me: we played our arses off and showed well in Memphis, looked poor vs ECU, and totally got out- hustled and physically whipped against Navy...who pretty much owns us. Please, Rick. No more Service Academy’s. They have too little talent but way too much heart.
