Those 2008 guys were enjoying the hell out of that pick 6. That was awesome

Okay, '78 has had his fair share of abuse, now it's my turn. I gave them an A because of the importance of this win to our near-term prospects, and it's substantiation of my belief that real progress is being made in rebuilding the program. Viewed in a vacuum, the LSU win was a solid B - viewed in context, it was a resounding victory that could well set the tone for a quicker than expected return to basic respectability. And while I'm at it, IMO, comparing CDM to his predecessors is totally ludicrous. One had never been a HC and may very well never become one. The other was a marginal candidate at best, plucked from a mediocre program in a third-rate conference, by what was arguably the worst FB AD in major CFB history.
I understand that the CDM era has just begun and that things could go south at anytime. I understand that many, including myself, were so happy to see Muschamp go that we welcomed McElwain with open arms. I myself was on board until witnessing the manner in which he bungled the Will Grier fiasco, and the abject collapse at the end of that first season. As others have hammered home on many occasions, the two divisional championships were the result of the total ineptitude of the entire eastern division, and not indicative of any real achievement by the Shriner's Clown parade that masqueraded as our coaching staff prior to the coming of CDM. Dan Mullen is not Jim McElwain, he is also not Will Muschamp. Exactly who CDM turns out to be is still TBD. But whoever he is, it sure as hell isn't either of the afore mentioned disasters foisted off on us by the biggest disaster of them all - Jeremy Foley. And for that, I am most heartily grateful. Fire when ready.
I still believe we've got a couple of stinkers in us before the end of the year due to inconsistencies with the offense but we don't have a bunch of quitters that's for sure. This teams growing process began after getting gut punched by UK earlier this year AND it may have been the best thing to happen to them. Defense is showing huge improvements despite some shortcomings and although the offense is still inconsistent, at least they manage to mix it up enough to stay in the game. I'm certainly more than pleased at this point.
And so he did, rightfully.
