The Second Half Al Borges called was the worst half I have seen since ThreetSheriDammit. Not only that but he has continually shown an inability to learn from previous mistakes to the point where his arrogance seems to get the best of him consistently. I am furious at today and would not be completely opposed to Hoke firing him.
HOWEVA, we have known from day one the personnel Hoke an Co. inherited is much different from the personnel they hope to build around. It has been very frustrating this season, watch them try and force the O-Line to do things they are not naturally good at. It was extremely frustrating to see the mismanagement of the running game. But at this point, we are entering next year with Devin Gardner as the starter. We are seeing a lot of young, talented O-Linemen come in to the rotation and starting lineup, players recruited by this staff to be able to fit intended schemes.
At this point, I am calling for a little sense to trust Hoke with this decision. Remember where we were a few years ago? Our roster still was not very complete this year. Certainly not as talented as Ohio.
I am pissed at what happened in that second half, but would firing Borges really do anything but potentially stall growth in the transitioning offense? I am concerned about Borges' stubbornness but this team can be close by staying the course. So...perhaps calm down.
