  1. First, I need to say that I believe Coach Gregory is the right coach and is building a program that I believe is on a good path. That said, I think we are all feeling the frustrations of not having had players who can shoot for years. For me, It’s just not that our shooting percentage is bad, it’s how many air balls and bad misses we shoot when we are wide open and how many air balls we have from the line. I’m not talking about our 4s and 5s, these are our guards and small forwards. I can’t remember the player’s name from some years ago who the announcers ID’ed as our “sharpshooter” who would throw up multiple air balls in the game. I’m 59, short, fat, out of shape, haven’t played in years and I believe I could go out and shoot the open shots just as well. I know it’s not true, but it makes it hard to watch because even in whatever fantasy I want to remember about my “glory days,” I wouldn’t have watched a team I was good enough to play on. Paraphrasing of Woody Allen’s line about joining a club that would have him as a member ( Means something different today than when he said it).
  2. I do not believe Army will join a conference primarily because the Army-Navy game would then have to be played in the regular season. The game is intentionally played after the the championship games so they don’t have to share the spotlight with any other D1 game.
  3. Another year of mediocrity just pushes the recovery out a year. Look at the time management at the end of the 1st half. First a Sr TE doesn’t even try to get of bounds and then with the clock ticking and time running out we line up and run a play rather than calling a time out. I’m sorry, but I’ve been a part of Pop Warner coaching staff’s that did a much better job of managing the clock and our only hope was to give the fast kid one more chance to run.
  4. CCS is just not a very good head coach. He became a hot commodity because of Bridgewater. He’s only had 3 good seasons in his head coaching career, two were with Bridgewater and one with Flowers. As we all witnessed, the season with Flowers was despite his coaching not because of it.
  5. Strong’s career record is 71-48. Strong’s career record without Bridgewater or Flowers is 33-38. It’s starting to feel a little Skippy round here.
  6. If we’re going on a revenge tour, let’s not forget about Drake. Hate the Drake!
  7. I don’t bet real money on my teams because I prefer to be optimistic about their success regardless of what the data may indicate. If you review Coach Strong’s head coaching history, I think the data suggests to take the Under. He has finished with 7 wins or less in 7 of his 10 seasons as a head coach. In the 3 seasons that were greater, Bridgewater and Flowers were the QBs. I’m hoping Coach Bell truly has full control of the offense and the Over will win but I’m not willing to bet on it.
  8. I believe if Kelly forces Strong to make an offensive philosophy change, we can win 8-9 games next year. What scares me is that Strong has now been a head coach for 9 seasons and in 6 of them he has won between 5-7 games. In the other 3 he has won over 10 games. The difference between the two outcomes, Bridgewater and Flowers were the QBs for the 3 over 10 win seasons.
  9. This team reminds me of Heath’s 2011-12 basketball team. It was difficult to watch but they won in the end.
  10. Mistake by the referees and the coaches. They all forgot about the penalty after the reversal. You can change your mind about a penalty after a reversal.
  11. I just completed this quiz. My Score 40/100 My Time 127 seconds
