We have been hearing since 2005 or 2006 that we are "rebuilding". We've head the words and the talk (i.e., "we're just one play away", or "we just need to pound it"). I think everyone is so tired of excuses and to hear this year that we are so young seemed at first to maybe just be more words. We've had too many empty promises and phony gimmick talk about turning the corner in the past. But it now seems like it's no longer just "talk". I see Mac2 as actually doing what he was hired to do: rebuild the Buffs and make a success out of this mess, just like he did with San Jose State. It's kind of cool to see the facilities being built and to see the pictures of what Folsom will look like with the new building in the NE corner, the bridge to Dal Ward, the indoor practice facility, etc. Rick George is bringing us a literal rebuild of the actual structures. In a parallel time frame, also seems like Mac 2 is delivering in actions, not in talk. Two 2 OT losses, multiple close games. There's a momentum and it's weird that it actually feels positive to be losing, since it isn't just words anymore. These players are better. Since I'm an optimist and a glass half full and overflowing Buff fan, some might think I'm painting to nice a picture here. But I really think my perspective is based in reality here- our team is better, we've got a coach who seems to make talented players develop, and we have a bright future ahead. I'll take 2-6 at this time. Prefer to be 6-2 or even 5-3. But I feel like our Buffs are truly almost back and truly being rebuilt. So what are our next steps in rebuilding??
