The "Fire Hoke now" posts and anger over today is kind of a mystery to me. Any emotion other than resignation seems strange. Firing Hoke now will get us precisely nothing, it will not attract a better coach, it will not stop the slide of this season. Sure, if we had 6 or 7 wins going into this game, then yeah, I'd get it.
The fact is, we will have a new coach next season, as almost everyone wants. This game seals that. Recruiting is already negatively impacted, and it will not get better no matter what happens to the staff this season.
I'm not attacking anyone, just curious about those who feel anger now. Maybe it's just me? But the time for anger passed awhile ago. In fact, the new coach we will surely have is probably a sign of hope for the program, as almost all of the candidates so far discussed will be an improvement over what we have now. So yes, this sucks, and the this game was awful to watch. But next year will be at minumum slightly better, and could be much better. Right?
This will be a snowflake thread for coaching, although we have several and I realize I am therefore contributing to the problem here. Oh well.
Again, I know this looks like manufactured crap, but it helps us administrate the board a bit better in that it prevents unfathomable redundancy. Well, some of it.
This is your thread for defense and defensive playcalling. As usual, if you want to zero in on a particular play, that can probably be its own thread.
I realize that these are not universally liked, but believe me, they prevent a lot of nightmares on the modding end.
This is your thread for offensive snowflakes...well, snowflakes about the offense and the offensive playcalling which aren't too, well, offensive.
What you drinking tonight? I'll have probably have some cheap liquor and even cheaper beer. Go College!
Time to drown my sorrows. Go Blue
