    Let's Let the Season Finish Prior to Making any Judgments

    What's changed? Where are all the people who said we should let the entire season play out prior to even considering any coaching changes?

    Well, you guys finally won me over and I'm all prepared to wait, then I see those same people now calling for Mac's head.

    I'm confused. Are we still waiting? If not, why not?

    Please keep me informed as to when it's appropriate to "rush to judgment" about Mac's future as our football coach. It's pretty confusing around here lately.

    Until I hear official word I, for one, will be waiting until the end of the season before making any judgments. It really is the appropriate thing to do as so many of you pointed out earlier in the year.

    Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?

    Well we still have alot to play for this season. For instance, we are one of only 63 teams still playing right now that will get to watch bowl games from the comfort of our own homes.

    The Germans/Pearl Harbor line was just a quote from the movie Animal House.

    Re: Let's Let the Season Finish Prior to Making any Judgments

    I think earlier in the year people wanted to wait because, despite our attrocious play, our record was understandable. There was still the chance that the team could bounce back, win the games it was supposed to, and become bowl eligible. It is now obvious that will not happen, and that we are again undeniably the worst team in the Big XII. I don't think anyone honestly believes that we will beat Colorado and Misssouri, but even if we blew out both of them it would still be a very dissapointing season and Mac would still have to go.

    The season was over after the Texas Tech game. It was very, very obvious.

    I would argue this fact with you, but I don't have access to the internet.

    I think that whatever happens, it should happen at the end of the season, and I think it will. I am still in the camp of letting a couple of assistants go, but I'm not convinced that will happen.

    Re: Let's Let the Season Finish Prior to Making any Judgments

    IMHO, the season was over after the UNI game. It was barely wheezing before that. After the Toledo game, I got a sick feeling of deja vu. After UNLV, the flashbacks began, and after UNI, I knew that this season was going to be an unmitigated disaster. I just want this to be over...
