19.Nov.2013 Does a Win Versus Washington Change Anything?
The reason I ask is fans seemed to chill out with the “Fire Bob D” talk after the basketball team upset Maryland.
I can see things getting very quiet if Riley beats Washington.
Now, I do think this is normal…fans being fans. And I don’t think it looks good to call for a guy’s head after a win. BUT, I am looking big picture at this point. The patterns are defined, engrained, and I am not falling for Lucy’s football ever again. I’m looking for consistency in myself and my views while remaining objective. So to me, a win versus Washington falls into “bull run in a bear market” camp. I can acknowledge it as a positive thing, but only within the larger downward/stagnant framework.
So, to the loyal AB fanbase, I ask you: does a win change anything? (And If your answer is “no”, my follow-up question would be: is there any number of wins that would change your perception?).
