That being said, I'm a 40+ yr LB fan and have seen many good and bad games. That being said...
When you read about a winning team losing to an 8 win team by 20pts in the 1st round of a end of a season game it's alarming to say the least when you think about it.
To put this into context... This was a historic loss.. no two ways about it. This was a Buster Douglass/Mike Tyson upset. This was almost on par with Cumberland losing to Georgia Tech 222-0.
You (Monsoon and LB athletics) can't really spin this any other way.
I mean... were the rims bent? snow on the court? Beach players had shoes on the wrong feat? Beach was caught in a time machine and they thought the game was preseason game in August? I'm waiting..
I would say this... over the last 15 yrs the administration has proven it gives less then two sh$ts about the success of the program and I also understand that Monsoon is simply doing what anyone else would do that had marginal talent and knew he had a gravy train... he stays on the train! $400k/yr + free CC and education for his kid(s)? duh he stays.
But what happens now? logic would seem to dictate it's time to clean house.. BIG change(s), etc. But we also know it's THE BEACH and big change means going from Costco toilet paper 2 ply to 1 ply in the mens bathrooms so let's say Im not hopeful that we won't see this movie YET AGAIN next season and the next 10 after that.
The Beach is permanently stuck in the boring, no one cares, middle ground. They don't suck enough or win enough for people to care.
Go beach and have a great summer!
