The straight scoop from
Colonel Mustard

Oct. 23, 2007

One more game and one more blowout loss. I remember when we all thought that parity in college football was a bad thing. At this point it would be great to achieve parity with any of our remaining opponents. At least this week the players showed effort, particularly in the first half. And again the fans didn’t boo and many stayed until the end of the game. Obviously at this point it is difficult to see us being competitive in any the remaining games. Hopefully the team can rally and put together a great effort and manage to pull one out.

Everyone understands this deterioration can’t be allowed to continue. So what should happen at this point? Tom has said he will not make any changes until the end of the season. Bill has said he won’t resign, so in the midst of a disastrous season nothing will change. Bill looks like a guy who wants to be put out of his misery. The picture in the Sunday W-H was worth a thousand words. I would like to see what Watson could do with the team in an interim role to finish the season. As I mentioned with Meyers' resigning, Watson calling plays on Saturday is very significant.

For the sake of the players, I wish something would happen with the coaches that at least gives a chance the rest of the season. A coaching change at the end of the season seems inevitable at this point. But first we must go through what looks like a rough end of the season. All we can do as fans is root for the team and hope for the best.

Keep the faith (Better days are coming). GBR

Keep the faith. GBR.
