    Re: Officially DONE!!!

    I feared this might happen. I expected 0-1 wins this year but people had rediculous expectations coming in. This was going to be a down year. This defense is 1980's bad guys, there was never any reason to think otherwise. There just is not a ton of talent on the defensive side of the ball and we got some linemen on offense that simply shouldnt be playing.

    There was no reason to think this defense could stop anyone. We barely have enough linebackers to fill out a D1 team. Way too many recruiting misses defensively.

    the problem is, there are a few guys starting on this team that were absolutely god awful last year and prior years...and yet no one could beat them out. There are a couple areas where when the two deeps came out I just shook my head.

    Sam isn't a horrible QB but he is never going to be any better than a nice option as a a backup QB at this level, the problem at QB sn't Sam R, it's that no one can beat him out.

    There are however, some really really alarming holes at other positions, where quite frankly, it is stunning how poor the talent is and how little development there has been.

    I am not ready to give up on CPR, but I am getting worried there are just too many holes and no one to fill them.

    Everything you say about the D lacking experience and talent is Rhoads fault. He offered and recruited and developed these guys. This is what he wanted and it's terrible. Not ready to give up? You sir have Stockholm syndrome. Get help

    Roughly 2500-3000 didn't renew this year. 2-3x that won't renew next year.

    Actual attendance this year will plummet if next week gets ugly.

    With the very plausible scenario of starting 0-5 Jack Trice is going to be pretty empty come the Toledo game.


    Yeah TOAST!!!

    Ha, yeah you are right, I get it, I just know he isn't going anywhere due to the contract so I will keep hope alive

    0-5 isn't just plausible. It's a 99% certainty.
    Toledo just finished their opener. Rockets won 54-20.

    Makes me wonder just exactly it would take to make some of you upset? Expectations have been way to low and too many excuses have been made for way too long...

    If we switched recruiting classes with UNI or NDSU, how bad would we have been beaten?
