Hence, we are now at an end to week 3 of our college football year and as we started the season with high hopes, we are looking at 0-3. The <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:placename w:st="on">Fresno</st1:placename> <st1:placetype w:st="on">State</st1:placetype></st1:place> loss was hard because were in it with 6 minutes left in the game and our boys played very hard. Unfortunately, we lost it in big plays and you see that all over the league and in professional ball.
Week 2, we all looked at it as a possible rebound week and to iron out some of the loose ends we still might have had. However, again, we showed more problems on our team and it didn’t seem that we have fixed some of the olds ones? This being very puzzling to me because I have always looked at the coaching staff with high regards. Still a loss here did not end our hopes, hell UNC proved to be a hidden Monster!
Now we are at week 3 and it seems we are still at a loss for not only words but also explanations on what is going on? Navy was a winnable game as was the others! Again as in week 2, we are showing more flaws than the previous week? I understand standing by our Quarterback, absolutely just to show you have faith and trust in him! This is necessary for coaches as well as fans. Maybe he is not up for the task? Maybe our Backups are not ready either? Not sure what to think of it, we have prided ourselves as a team of speed and gang tacklers! However, so far this year we looked slow and drawn out on plays? Which brings me to this point; How good is our coaching assistants? I have complete faith in Schiano and when he took over the reigns of Defense back in end of 05 I was a little skeptic.
But we have had many coaching changes in the off season and I am wondering are they ready for this level of play? I see around the league other Division 1 schools with NFL caliber coaches and I wonder why wouldn’t we have such coaches at our disposal? I see too many misplays and at some point you can blame the players but when they are at this extent shouldn’t the coaching staff have some blame?
