This was set in motion and predestined the very moment Paul Johnson was hired

    Maybe we should swap offensive coordinators from play-to-play. Any coach who makes good calls during practice has earned the right to make calls during a game.

    That's a terrifying fact for you to point out.

    Paul Johnson’s players did win that game today.

    Collins took that away with his idiotic timeout.

    Paul Johnson struck fear into the hearts of our opponents to the point of ref tampering, schedule changing, rule changing, and heavy media and negative recruiting attacks.

    Geoff Collins will not do this.

    Be happy we don’t have FSU’s co atch. Will had one good year at USF, and they are a Factory with a chest full of gold and no debt. But still, they have a Willy. Laugh more at free shoes and crab legs.

    Yeah, I was at that game. Furman had a All-American RB, Stanford Jennings I believe was the name, that ran all over us. Totally caught us with our knickers down.

    I think the rule changing was the worst. The status quo managed to legislate diversity out of the game by damaging option principle football. Paul Johnson changed the game through the fear of others. Ironic that it was part of his demise.

    Not a single win came with Lucas Johnson under center! I think PJ knew he had no QBs on this roster and decided to quit.

    I recall back when we were either considering or had announced the hiring of CPJ a lot of talk about how it would be brutal for whenever he was gone because of the difficulties of rebuilding after 10 years of option ball. This isn’t something that people are coming up with now. This was discussed at length back then.

    It was always a half baked theory, and given what happened yesterday is obviously incorrect

    How is it half baked? I distinctly recall the concern of what happens when you all of a sudden need TEs, an OL that can pass block, a QB who can read a secondary and throw, and receivers who catch.

    The only one of those we have right now are receivers and I’m not quite sure how that happened.

    PJ literally put a starting tight end into the league

    Yesterday was obviously winnable. The only people that think we have zero talent are CPJ haters with axes to grind.

    I saw our WRs not able to get much separation vs FCS CBs.

    No argument on the rest. We're trotting out mostly-FCS-recruited talent and getting FCS results.

    USF is REALLY terrible.

    Waller literally played WR for us and literally never played a single down as a TE for us.

    This is what’s called a “self-fulfilling prophecy.”

    We replaced a very competent coach with an unproven head coach. But the unproven coach does things the way football minds want them done (see: George McPhee’s quote about hockey fans knowing the game to get sense of the arrogance these football minds have) so the excuses will come early and often. The heretic has been deposed and now the true repentance can happen.

    When you build in an excuse for your failure you tend to fail.
