Do you really think coaches will get the axe? I'm not so sure. The spin will be, "We were so close. We're improving. Next year we win those games."
We in trouble. Again.
the advanced stats guys are gonna have some interesting things to say bout this year's team in retrospect.
I dont need no stinkin' graphs or pie charts :lol:
agreed. But our "unlucky" factor is going to be through the roof. I don't think we've been unlucky to lose all those close games. We earned those losses, sadly.
It's true. There are at least 4 games that could of and maybe should have gone CU's way..... we lost all of them.
Yup. The crappy D and ST puts too much pressure on Sefo to win games, and he isn't talented enough or have the "it" factor to win a game on his own shoulders. Things have to change...
Statistically, Colorado losing every one of those games is absolutely stunning. Worst 2nd half team that I have ever seen.
Yeah we should of won more games but we let others borrow our dick. When u do that, it ends up in the dirt.
It shows that we can score. It also shows that on defense we can't do sh*t to stop the other team.
I am so amazed by this, but I will try to put a positive spin on it, just for the hell of it:
we are completely and totally outgunned athletically in this conference in every important way: speed, strength, experience, depth, all of it. the fact that this staff could keep all 7 of those losses close at the half just shows that they know their Xs and Os. if we didn't break down physically, we'd have won a few more.
anyhow. not sure I buy it myself, but that's a spin on it.
Unlucky =/= Unfortunate
No point in blaming luck.
Responsibility for the product on the field is assigned to highly paid coaches, their assembly of talent, and player execution.
I wish I could be unlucky at my job and pull millions a year. Baer needs to go. Neinas too.
I agree 100%.....
The losses pretty much fall squarely on the defense. Every time the D took the field, I was overcome by dread.
Not sure I've ever seen a team lose this many games in the same fashion. If CU loses the first game next year I am pretty sure Mac will lose his team. This is emotionally draining
My guess is that a lot of teams didn't take us very seriously and didn't really actually show up until the second half.
Or, we lived up to Vegas' expectations by losing all the games in which we were underdogs. 6-6 against the spread. I believe the only game in which we bucked Vegas was CSU.
Being the underdog in every game doesn't actually mean that you're expected to lose every game. So in that sense, we actually underperformed expectations (significantly). Even if the odds imply, for instance, that there's only a 10% chance that you win each individual conference game, the implied probability that you lose all nine of them is way below 50%.
This might be the case when you're rolling a 9-sided die, but not when you're playing against Oregon or USC talent. We were significantly better against betting lines on a game-by-game basis than in 2012. Still should have won more (some) games this year based on the eyeball test, but saying "odds are we shoulda outperformed our talent" is easier said than done. Unless you'd like to argue that we were 'as talented' than any of the teams we lost to this year.
That's like a poem, bro. Nice post.
It's a Hai-luke.
