The depth of talent will take awhile to build up, but I felt like I saw a lot more effort yesterday than I’ve seen for most of the past couple of years. That’s what I was most interested to watch yesterday. I think that kind of effort will win some games this year.
Franks has to play better regardless of the opponent. He missed open receivers and decision making looked shaky at times. Georgia had something to do with that but I think he’d tell you he can do better.
There are no quick solutions for us, that is for sure. We did play hard and did not quit. The team was organized and played pretty well that first half. I am impressed by the improvements made, while at the same time kind of in a funk knowing how far we have to go to become relative and competitive in the SEC.
I do like the fact Coach Pittman tells it pretty much like it is. No smoke blowing or bs’ing. I do hope he is the man for the job because he is such a good dude. He will get enough time, I do believe, to recruit and bring the talent level to a point where we can compete week in and week out.
Now, on to the Cow College down in Starkville. Moooo…
I didn’t judge him (note - did not say you were speaking to me only) any more than you did. I essentially said what you did…he didn’t play well yesterday. Have also noted in other posts and a thread I started that our offensive effort needs to judged through the prism of who they were lined up against. And I’ve also said I haven’t made a definitive judgement about him. But it is fair (and accurate) to say I was less than excited about what I saw from our QB play yesterday. I truly hope to see better things in the next 2-3 weeks.
