Wow, we are setting the bar at a winning season. Sounds like we are Illinois. With the resources and support this university has, I think 8 or 9 win seasons, with a conference championship game appearance sprinkled in every 2 or 3 is reasonable. From what I’ve seen, that is what a lot of people on this board believe in. Yea the hype train’s brakes were cut and was rolling out of control, but every fan base does that. Go check out any other team’s forum over the summer.
Maybe there’s is still a culture problem, maybe these kids don’t know how to win, or maybe we hyped up this staff and expected a UCF year 2. I just think the execution is poor and this staff gets outcoached far too often. The coaches had a great first half game plan. Montez hates pressure. Dude curls up 1 second before getting hit. Chin decided to stop bringing pressure. Montez with no pressure is a great pocket passer. We all could tell he is scared of pressure, and maybe the defense was just worn down, but it’s frustrating.
