    I adjusted my expectations after I saw that we couldn't simply out-athlete The Citadel. And no, I don't need convincing that we would've won it with the triple option or a former coach. I know we would have. But running the triple option shouldn't have been necessary to beat an FCS squad with 22 less scholarships.

    The rest of the season has fallen in line since that adjustment. The improvement to that baseline has been promising (last couple games show life) but it is what it is.

    It's weird how some po
    You say bad coaching... I say bad players. I mean did you really expect to use triple option QBs, WRs and linemen in a standard offense and *not* get the results we have so far? A couple of our RBs have actually looked decent in the standard offense, though, so at least that is a pleasant surprise. Only time and recruiting can fix our current woes.

    Please tell me, did you expect our QBs to magically turn into 60% completion QBs in a standard offense?

    Virginia Tech or NC State on a short week. The team traveling on a Thursday 5 days after playing probably has a really hard time getting enough prep in. And State plays a much improved Louisville on 11/16.

    This is either one of the funniest troll posts in all of college football message boards, or you have a serious misunderstanding of Citadel and Temples talent levels.

    What I see week in and week out is bad coaching, poor discipline, and a complete lack of motivation.

    My only coaching complaint is us not using a conventional under-center running package for short-yardage situations. What we do isn’t working, & it gets blown up quickly before the play can develop.

    I must be delirious, I actually agree with BuzzFeltHimselfSystem about something. I think VPI is our best opportunity for a win of the games remaining.

    Is that really your only coaching complaint? I'm not ready to fire anyone yet; but I definitely got the OC on the hot seat in my mind. I just hope CGC doesn't make the mistake of hanging on to associates that need to be replaced; but it will take a few years to pass judgement on that. Year 1 is too soon to make a decision.

    I think we got a shot at Everyone besides georgia. Maybe that’s just my gold colored glasses.

    How many 60% completion QBs have we had since George Godsey? I'm thinking zero. Yet EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. of our starting QBs made a bowl game.

    If we're having to wait on Top 25 recruiting classes to be able to even be competitive, then we're exactly what I was afraid of. I'm not ready to accept that, though.

    Let's be honest, it takes some pretty bad coaching to take an orange bowl champion and go 3-9... oh wait, that's not how things work? Teams change year to year?

    We've got what, 3 seniors in our two deep? We're starting 2 walkons at OL. Our defense was bad last year and we're replacing most everybody on it. Calm the f down and accept the reality that expectations were low for a reason.

    listen there is evidence for both sides of the arguments

    An undisciplined poorly coached team isn't #3 in all the land in penalties. Ok. They just aren't. So something is ok and being coached right. Clearly there is some focus and detail and accountability. Same with turnovers. We are doing ok there really. All things considered.

    By the same token, yeah there are times when you wonder WTF was that. But its often on execution. I saw some really good designed plays that we don't hit. Bad blocks, etc. Are the kids confused? Or just overmatched? or still learning...all of the above. Is it coaching? or what? Not sure we totally know yet. This is not an easy system to learn...the OL blocking calls and reads are complex presnap.

    Defensively, the front 7 is starting to simply be worn down. In general we all have seen strides on D. Just not consistent and still when guys are in place they are missing on plays

    Not unless the defense gets back on track. They looked lost quite a few times yesterday, including the play where a simple dive went for 60 yards or something. We left a 10 foot wide gap in the line of scrimmage, that’s about as fundamental mistake as one can make.

    Our DBs are getting beat because our DL can’t put any pressure on the QB. Gotta figure out how to get some blitzing going like we did in our first two games. Not sure what’s changed.

    Duke is the 3rd best team and offense we face all season.

    Any significant injuries contribute to the ‘15 debacle? The seasons around it suggest so.

    I think UNC has a better offense, but you might be right.

    I think you're right, but duke matched up better against us with a strong running game.

    And significant injuries/attrition are contributing to this one, too. I think we have 4 guys left from one of our classes, 2016 maybe.

    We can’t even compete with P5 teams for a half. How about CGC shuts up about “improvement” until that happens?

    We’re not just losing. We’re not tiring out because we lack bodies. We’re getting our doors blown off by half.
