That said, who is out there...realistically...that can turn this ship? Who does Gene bring in??? I don't think the one-year-left is a huge obstacle; they can find a way around that.
: The game of football relies a lot on emotion.
: I see a lack of emotion in the Spartans.
: Defensive play is what gets the emotion
: going, a sack, an interception, even a stop
: on 3rd down should get the players going.
: However, it seems that each of the last two
: or three DC's expect the Spartans to go
: toe-to-toe with opposing teams. It may be
: what RC wants, not to take chances on
: blitzes, and slants. If you see San Diego
: St., that's all they do on every play. They
: stack the line with 8 players and they are
: very successful. I see the Spartans on their
: heels most of the time because they are
: mainly outmanned. You can't just keep on
: taking punches and expect to be standing for
: 60 minutes. What happened to our
: D-backfield? That was supposed to be the
: strength of the D. In a way I do see that we
: are better on D, but we're not doing the
: little things to get us over the hump, and
: those little things do add up. Especially
: when the O can't move the ball. In the end
: the attitude of a team parallels the
: attitude of the HC. Only a coach with a
: different attitude can change our fortunes.
: I feel sorry for RC but he had big shoes to
: fill, not only replacing coach Mac, but the
: tough situation at SJSU. On the bright side
: he'll have earned over $2.5M. It would take
: me 20 years to earn that amount.
