With the struggles of a young team, particularly the D, I have now started to expect less of this team next year. At the beginning of this season I was thinking that next year would be a 9 or 10 win season. Now, with the lack of improvement defensively as this year goes on I think expecting 9 or 10 wins next year is a bit too much. I will be happy with a bowl game next year and look forward to RichRod's 4th year as the years where things really come together. I just hope that the people making decisions are willing to give him that much time.
