And this is what bothers me. At the start of the season I said I thought we could win 9 games but if we won as few as 7 games, I would be happy as long as we are showing progression and ending the year on a high note. Instead our offense started off badly and has only grown worse. The defense has been stout but there is only so long they could sustain that intensity in the face of The Negatice Suck of the offense. I know we have injuries but this happens to every team and they use it as an opportunity to build depth. We lost Connor Williams 7 games ago and not one player has stepped up and we're still using it as an excuse. The coaching staff has to take some heat for that as it is their job to coach the kids up. I won't even get into the ineptitude of tom Herman and Tim beck's game planning. That is s dead horse so let's just say its debatable that he understands the talent he has on hand or how to problem solve for it's shortcomings. I guess we should be happy we beat Kansas. We all know this squad is capable of losing to them as we all saw it last year. The difference as I see it: That coaching staff knew they were fired at that time and the players knew it too. All other things from this year to last are equal.
