Who really gives an eff if LDR had won this meaningless game? Are you saying we would be on some kind of championship run this season behind LDR? This is a rebuilding season, it's always been a rebuilding season, so the young guys need to play. Period. That's why I supported Franks playing over a stiff like LDR. At some point we have to find out if the young guys can play. Hell, I'm all for throwing Trask out there to see if he can play. Why the hell not?
We get so hung up on winning every game in a lost season like this that we don't think about the future. We should be thinking of next year from this point forward. Play every young guy possible. It's better to have a 3-8 season this year than five 7-win seasons in a row after this one.
However, that won't happen because Butters doesn't want to lose his job. We're all too hung up purely on wins and losses right now, when they don't matter much. We're a bad football team that should only be playing for future seasons at this point.

Hammond and Swain are just fine. These were highly recruited kids and there's no doubt in my mind that they would be balling at other schools.
If anything, I feel sorry for the kids. They chose to come represent the school that we love, but the leadership has really let these kids down.
Sorry for venting, but I don't agree when adult fans criticize kids that play for free. How about starting a thread aimed at the adults that are collecting exorbitant salaries, yet they continue to suck.

- Thread: Who do you want to replace Mac?
We once had a HBC who got embarrassed in a game or two, including one in the biggest game of them all. He went out and got the best DC available and payed the man what it took.
I don't blame Mac for this first staff. He clearly wanted better people, even made noises about getting top hires at DB and WR then after numerous rejections, we ended up with the shiite we got. I'm sure Nuss was his guy from the beginning but a good coach knows what to do. I'm not sure how wedded he is to Side Hat.
We will see what happens. His decisions at the end of this year will determine his fate.
