[youtube][/youtube]I’m proud of the way the team fought today. In fact, I’m proud of the way they fought the last two weeks. We’re now depleted by injuries & it’s showing up, but Lock is one great QB & he has some great receivers. Our defensive backfield is hardly great, but not many would’ve stopped some of those throw & catches today.
I knew when we scored our last TD, we’d still need at least one more to win. The FG to tie it up was better than no score, but I was afraid we needed a TD & we needed by taking another 2 mins or more off the clock.
Still, I never consider a close loss to MU a moral victory. Our program should be ahead of theirs. We should also be ahead of MSU & Ole Miss. I recognize LSU, Bama, Aubie & TAMU have advantages over us, but not the other 3.
I love CBB. I know the locker room is hurting badly right now. I feel for the kids, the families, everyone involved. I just hope our new coach can capture the fan base, salvage recruiting, & have a 7 win season next year. He’ll have the usual one season honeymoon, maybe a 2 season honeymoon, but in year 3 we better be winning 8 or more or we’ll be clamoring for replacing him. Oh well, that’s part of the problem when you’re mid-tier in the SEC.
With the talent we have coming back, the new coach should win 7 or more. Only losing a few seniors. Maybe a few will transfer. Pretty sure some of our commitments are going to de-commit, which is to be expected.
