    Can you imagine the state of the fan base had this not been the case? If he had hung around for the paycheck and made GT buy him out? I’ll always appreciate the way he conducted himself at the end because it lends itself so well to moving ahead with the program.

    I'm still getting used to seeing a handoff, the RB run 4-5 yards for no gain or a loss of yardage. Before, if the BBack was moving forward, the LOS moved forward

    That’s one of my main complaints with Paterdouche. If we’re going to be a “pro-style” team then we should absolutely be able to line up under center. No pro team exclusively uses the shotgun. It’s dumb.

    I know there’s a large learning curve for all our offensive players, but we should still be able to line up under center and jam the ball forward for 1 yard.

    Actually, it’s my fault
    Wore my blue hat for USF

    I still remember turning to my dad and daughter in the 3rd and saying "we might get 1,000 yards today". Like it was yesterday. I'm old

    Yeah, now we get to watch a bunch of 3 and outs and 179 yards of offense. Shucks. Who would have thunk it?

    In Johnson's defense, he never gave a shiit about his defense.
