I don't even care anymore. I'm resigned to the fact we absolutely stink right now. I'm more concerned about no real improvement showing up. Say what you will about traitorous scum, HCRE seemed to get his teams playing better over the season.
I agree. That is what also concerns me the most. Will this system of rotating so many players actually produce real improvement over the course of the season? We will see.
We've had some kooky schedules in the past few seasons, remnants of Hathaway and the conference change. Five games in the first 29 days of the season to start this year, and then 3 games in the next 35 days.
That would be a furious start for a veteran and disciplined team. I don't recall Edsall having front loading schedules this heavy, and he did reliably and regularly develop teams that started painfully slow but finished seasons strong. Sept and Oct under Edsall were always very frustrating, at least for me, because it seemed we were always starting from scratch to get to that 7-6, 8-5 finish.
Can only hope that with the practice time we've got over the 35 days that are already blowing by, that come November we can show real development and finish strong.
It's amazing how bad SMU is by the way. Whalers been mentioning it regularly, but I had no idea. We are not the worst team in division 1, but I'm sure I'm not alone in wanting to be closer to the top, than we are to the bottom.
