Growing Pains

Honestly, this is the only phrase I can use to describe how this season has gone. Lets face facts here as fans... We have been spoiled by the success we had last year and have come to expect the type of winning streaks that got us on the national map last year.

When you take a look at this years team it is a group of EXTREMELY tallented players... but they are all so young! This is especially evident in our O-line, I mean we basically lost our entire line from last year and are rebuilding from scratch... sacks, collapsing pockets, and pressure really should be expected here. Then you look at players like Potts, who has received the blunt of the blame for our woes (from myself as well as others). This was a guy that we had no reason NOT to have faith in coming into the season ... Plain and simple it just hasn't worked out. One thing to look up at here is that we have Sticks who is without a doubt the guy we want to lead our team through next year. Our receiving crew is outstanding... though again just young and inexperienced, hence dropped passes.

Our defense def got crushed last week, but honestly that is the only game I have seen this season that they played so terrible... Anyone else remember when we would play this bad versus about every single team we lined up against?

Bottom line is that this loss is nothing we can't recover and build from. We have had a great run against the Ags and no you can't win every single one of them, but I think we will rebound this week and use this game as a reminder of what happens when you get too full of yourselves.

When I look ahead at our schedule, there is no reason that we can't go out there and take AT LEAST 3 of the remaining 4 games. We have the talent to play with anyone, and I think we will prove it coming up.

As fans I just hope we don't get down on these guys, because without our support there is no way they recover from such a hard loss... We have one of the strongest home field fan bases in college football, we need to realize that and stop Booing our own players and show some faith and support to our guys again.

Just my interpretation of the situation...
