talking about the strength of utah state after the game? ha ha ha too funny.
why did anyone think we'd win handily? i have NO idea, but there were quite a few people on this board since the last week talking about how we are going to do well from here on out based on us beating a TERRIBLE unm team in the first game.
8 wins? there's about as much chance of that happening as me pulling a 3 some with catherine zeta jones and monica bellucci. ha ha, 8 wins...
i'll give you credit Pum, you've got some optimistic views and definitely try to see the good in situations, but this team is not good at all. and it remains to be seen whether we have made any progress since last year.
All I'm saying is that not every win will be pretty. And yes I believe there will be 7 to 8.
KC said a High School team could beat these teams.. Well looking at A&M's roster, A&M's team is a bunch of Freshmen & 2nd year players with a handfull of veterans. So while I hate to admit it, past a couple of starters & this team is close to a the same Age as a High School team. There are A LOT of 18 & 19 year olds on the roster that are on the 2 Deep. It's a team with a bunch of upside that is obviously better than last seasons team & is far more explosive than probably any team A&M has fielded offensively. The Offense is what A&M will have to hang their hat on.
It's JMO. You don't agree, fine. But when I say 7 to 8 wins, I am not saying that A&M will blow out 7 to 8 teams. Some might be 1 point wins, some might be 10, some might more.. Who knows... It's just a prediction. Judging by your recent track record, I am sure when you say 3 to 4 wins, the 8 or 9 losses you are talking about are probably big losses by 28 or more points... To each his own...
This team is better & at least moving forward.
Who knows how long it will take to get the O'Line to fix their penalty problems... But when they do, man the Offense could be scary good with the way they are moving the ball better than they have under RC & probably better than even early in Reggie's career at A&M.
I'm not going to say that the Defense is going to win too many games for A&M, but hopefully they will improve. The coverage seems to be pretty good, but if Miller isn't getting pressure & the QB's are allowed to sit there, it seems that the 2ndary loses coverage... The LB's also need to learn their assignments better (even though has improved as well).
