01.Jul.2012 AngryBeavs is Three Years Old
To celebrate, let's dig into the archive for this gem, from 2010:
Will the current batch of offensive linemen have their starting roles challenged, or will they be handed the starting jobs based on experience? It is a must that, based on on-the-field performance, they have their starting jobs yanked. Riley is extremely frustrating in this regard, starting experienced garbage over unproven talent time and time again. By the halfway mark sometimes he figures it out, but this year he did not. And then fans wonder why we have slow starts. Depth is one reason, but not having the right players on the field until game five is another. My fear is that next year the walk-ons (who are all juniors) will go into camp as the favorites to win their positions, and that is simply inexcusable. I do not want to waste another season sifting through garbage players from lazy recruiting classes. We did this with Pankey, and we're doing it with the basketball team. That is not fair; we are all getting older and wasting seasons begging for seniors to graduate does nobody any good.
Fast forward a couple years, insert Robinson for Pankey. Rinse, repeat.
Sometimes I feel like the guy in 1971 who said people should hold their silver coins. He was just stating the obvious. Everyone laughed at him at the time, but after many years he's been proven right. I guess my point is that I've been writing this shit since 2005 (on other forums), and now those people are finally coming around to reality. Time is interesting for many reasons, but in this context, because as it passes it removes anomalies and puts things in their clear and rightful place.
