The big test of the coaching staff will be when they have their class in place for 3 or 4 years. Then there are no excuses.
Probably not. But that is a major problem in college sports. A new coach is given players who they can not trade. Fans don't consider this.If this team plays this way next year, I highly doubt that this staff makes it 3-4 years. This team hasn't gotten any better and it appears that they are losing the support of both the players and the fans.
This argument has merit. But then you are stuck with mediocrity for an extra season. The value of pushing the kids this season is to develop the players to a desired system. As the better recruits, or the recruits tailored to the desired system of the coaches, enter into the system, the prior players have gone past the learning curve and the coaches can remove the players who can't make adjustments and replace them with those who can."Probably not.

As a coach you're responsible for getting the most out of your players, not the players making the most out of your system. I realize coach PP can better find players to fit his system given time, but if the players he has doesn't fit his system, he must modify his system to fit the players, to win!
McCummings was pretty right there and a few of our other scoring drives today. Just think... him or Nebrich (whom I prefer over Mac any day), had the same number of reps in practice and real games, how much better they would be? Thus far I'd say McCumming's despite a few bonehead plays, has played a pretty good game..
I agree that he's played well, but has fumbled 3 times. That is inexcusable. I don't care how good a QB is, he can't do that. Even Drew Brees is mediocre when he turns it over.
