01.Oct.2016 The Beavers Aren’t Getting Any Better
The title says it all — this team looks just as bad, if not worse, than last year’s team.
At times vs MN and Boise State they looked improved. They had some pass rush and attitude, and game 1 I remember thinking they passed the eyeball test a bit more, but it hasn’t lead to any positive results.
What do you guys see?
Any improvement? Is the co-coordinator system doing anything for you or the team? Has there been any creativity to make up for the lack of talent? Are GA’s threats and mood swings getting old?
With each loss all of that gets worse as fans grow impatient and frustrated. The Beavs badly need a conference win to settle everyone down and show progress, yet it hasn’t happened and looks far from happening.
Meanwhile, Riley is 5-0 at Nebraska. Not saying I wanted to keep Riley. This is a gamble I’m glad we took, but he’s 5-0 and ranked #15 and climbing. He worked with the mobile QB he was given. GA booted almost every QB from the program, and ironically, has wound up basically with pocket passers. Maybe we’re all biased in favor of GA simply because he isn’t Riley and says what we wanted to hear Riley say for years. Just saying, real talk.
Anyway, I’m sure we’ll hear more talk about “the kids” bringing their “big boy pants”, but GA needs to bring his big boy pants out on the recruiting trail and up-sell this trainwreck (dubbed the GA Express) as early playing time.
