LOL - Rhett is still being punished for our defensive incompetence. A new standard of Randy 2.0 excellence.

Look. We suck, Chief. Purple Stein’s not debating the point. Purple Stein’s only point is that Rhett’s offense was not notably better than any other we’ve played and was, by one metric, vaguely substandard.

Purple Stein thinks anyone can dial up 600 yards against us. Rhett, maybe because he has a soft spot for RE 2.0, only dialed up 594 :)
The 594 was due in part to the onside kick. Had UConn kicked a normal kickoff, the subsequent TD run would have added another 50 yards to their total. :):):)

The other thing that Chief did not have the patience to explain is that because our offense improved some - they were not 3 and out - that created less possessions for the opponents offense to pile up yardage. Either way they scored 62 points. That’s bad enough where Chief comes from.

Purple Stein would point out that, going into Saturday, SMU had the 101st ranked offense in FBS. After fattening up on us, they’ll probably be in the mid 70’s.

As Purple Stein said before, but may need to reiterate for the casual fan, Lashlee is a good coach

Lashlee replaced a guy who was effectively fired for bad performance. If he finishes in the middle of the pack with improvement shown throughout the year , he’s accomplished something

Rhett averaged 28.3 ppg first 6 games of 2017. Now we have an offensive line coach calling plays for the first time. Life comes at you fast.

Never believe the family narrative stuff is the driver. That’s BS. Sure his wife had to make an adjustment but he went from Alabama to Storrs to Dallas. A coach’s wife adjust to moving. It’s what happened in the clubhouse when he was here. Grimes left too.
100% on the money. There is a ton of self soothing spin by folks. We blew it. We had two very talented coaches that left because we couldn't hang onto them and it isn't because the wife didn't like Connecticut.
