I just saw the article Rob posted today. I didn't see any post on it yet, so I wanted to highlight to everyone the last two paragraphs of the article. That’s the hope. The grindstone replaces shiny objects and an ability to remain still in the moment banishes painful losses to the recesses of memory. The future remains bright — and Campbell fully “gets” how being so close to being an results-validated elite team frustrates fans eager to celebrate a long-awaited, nationally-noticed breakthrough. “I get it,” Campbell said. “I do. I completely understand it, but I also understand this: They’ve seen a a lot of bad football for a long time and I think they’re smart enough to know what good football looks like and what good culture looks like and what really good kids look like. And to me, that’s the thing that’s maybe a joy for me to walk into these walls is knowing what these kids put in to being the best they can be — and when you’re inches and fractions away, you can stomach it, because you know it’s our job to just keep pounding away to get it done.” As we finish this year, posters should take the big picture view the just how better things are from just a few years ago, and how anyone paying attention has legitimate hope that the best is yet to come with the players and coaches we have in the program.
