Dazed and Confused

Yeah, it's clearly not Napier's personality to go off either on the sideline or in press conferences. It was the same for Urban Meyer. You guys hoping Napier will act like an angry lunatic in public are going to be disappointed.
Meyer went off on the sidelines. As did Spurrier. I don’t think anyone’s wanting to see a lunatic, but some ownership of an awful night instead of insisting that Usf is a good team and it’s a great win would be nice.
Do we really think the roster is significantly worse than last year? I don't.Surely we weren't expecting a roster this thin to show linear improvement. Or were we?
Maybe he can bring Muschamp on as an advisor.Yeah, it's clearly not Napier's personality to go off either on the sideline or in press conferences. It was the same for Urban Meyer. You guys hoping Napier will act like an angry lunatic in public are going to be disappointed.
It's a new offense and defense for the players. It's a new, first time head coach and staff. It's a team that picked up terrible habits if they are experienced with the old regime. The team has holes in most of the groups with very little experience as individuals and in this scheme.I heard that. Wondered why no one asked him why we don't scheme and coach up for teams we are playing!

Last year against these guys we scored 35 points in the first half and cruised to an easy win on the road with 666 yards of offense.
This year at home we struggled to 31 total points on only 329 yards of offense and needed a couple of unforced errors from the bulls on their final possession to secure the win.
Maybe it's unfair to expect major improvement 3 games in, but do you think we should expect to see the major regression we are seeing?
All this. We're still on the install, hard to do a lot of adjustments right now.It's a new offense and defense for the players. It's a new, first time head coach and staff.

It looks like **** with an occasional bright spot.
IMO, the program isn't at a point to "scheme" against opponents.We are trying to avoid stepping on our own dicks. Crawl, then walk, then run. We are in the crawling stage.
And BN did emphasize (and I could tell he was POed) that WE HAVE A LOT OF WORK TO DO. He's said that at each press conference.
Seeing as most of our best players right now are guys that Billy brought in, that tells me how bare the cupboard was after Dan left. This will not be an easy turnaround. Give the man some time before ya'll burn him on the cross.
OL is playing its best in years. We have 2 very good backs with big play ability. New players scattered across the defense who will learn and grow with experience.
Our best WR is a transfer.
This is a full on rebuild. The man needs time.
If AR was playing even avg QB play, I would agree. But he isnt, in fact he's one of the worst in the SEC right now stat wise. The team played well enough to beat UK, AR handed them 2 scores when we couldve put a drive together n sucked the life out of them.I can agree with that to an extent, and touched on that after Utah. But again, I think the issue some are having is that those players left by Mullen won’t beat uga, but are capable of beating Uk and shouldn’t struggle like that against Usf. No one expected perfection this year. But if we’re truly staring down a .500 record, that is very much on the coaching staff.
I don’t know that we’ll ever get a ton of specifics immediately post game. Monday, however, there should be more details.Feel good session from CBN - No details about our obvious weaknesses and what we'll do to fix
This is the ONE thing I'm clinging to... desperately so.New Coach is 2-1 after starting the season vs 2 ranked teams out the gate with a young team of which most of his guys are already our best players at their positions and you guys are crying because he didnt go Dennis Green at the presser after a close win?? Wow
None of those teams you listed are also under a new staff, learning new schemes ect whilst starting multiple transfers / inexperienced freshmen across the board.Florida has a talent composite of 12th. Stop being apologists for these crap performances.
Kentucky is 27th. Utah is 33rd. USF is 65th.
Are we the only team with holes? None of those teams with less talent on paper have holes? Kentucky didn't even have their two best backs.
He had all spring with AR. He had fall camp. He's coaching QBs. None of this is on Napier? Really?
There is a non-zero amount of this that is the head coach and his staff's responsibility. We can debate the amount but it isn't none.
