The Donkey Can Afford It

This donkey might be sitting in a good place, but we are in trouble.  The fan base is split and the team can't seem to figure out who they want to be.  And our coaches look lost.

There are those that are calling for calm.  I'm sure the radio guys in Lubbock are discussing how bright the future is and how in 2014 or 2015 we're really, really gonna put it together and have a magical season.  On the other hand, there are those that are ready to burn the place down and start all over.  I'm somewhere in the middle I guess.   The offense is way too predictable, but it always has been.  For years teams knew we were only gonna run a handful of plays, but now it seems  the order of those plays is the problem.  First down: run up the middle.  Second down: 20 yard pass to the sideline to gain 3 yards.  Third down: five yard pass to James.  Fourth down: punt.  

How can we mix it up?

The sad thing is I'm not even mad.  There's just an overwhelming feeling of indifference, and I hate that.  I want to be mad but can't seem to get there.  I still want to hope for a great 2nd half of the season.

We need two wins to get bowl eligible and I want to hear your thoughts on how we can get there.  We can beat Iowa State and possibly Baylor and/or Texas.  We have a tough road ahead, but this team, and more importantly this coaching staff, need the extra six weeks of practice.  Even if we are playing in the lowest bowl on the schedule, this coaching staff needs the practice.

The donkey can afford to relax.  Our coaching staff doesn't have that luxury.

What are your thoughts?  Who was at the game, and what was the atmosphere like?  We need an identity again.  Let's work it out.
