we've 8 seniors. bama has 9, wiscy has 9, clemson has 11. http://www.cubuffs.com/fls/600/gameday/fsu12/cunotes.pdf?DB_OEM_ID=600 i am fully aware that these schools had more base talent, by far, to work with. but, is it really too much to ask for our inexperienced team (that, even with the gaps above, has higher ranked athletes, across the board than either sac st or csu) to beat the bottom feeders from a non-qualifying conference and a lower division? really? no one sane is calling for the immediate termination of the staff-- that would never happen here 2 games into a season, but folks best realize that this staff is quite rightfully under the microscope and needs to perform better THIS YEAR. blaming it all on youth and inexperience and a prior culture is lame. i don't hear the coaches doing that. i hear embree and the staff OWNING the failure and vowing to work to improve it. we can debate about whether they will succeed in getting this turned around, but let's not pretend that it is all circumstances beyond their control. a level-headed conversation about what has gone wrong and what can be improved is not a bad thing.
