Pirate Mike

When we boil it all down, the reason we’re losing is our offensive and defensive lines have not the size or talent level of our competitors. It was readily apparent last night as I watched our DE get tossed aside like a manikin by the Cincy OT. However it’s not as if our coaches, yes including Mo, didn’t do their best to get the best linemen they could. It’s just that good lineman need a couple of years to develop and compete in the AAC. We have youngsters. They’ll need time. Our job will be keeping them happy and in school and away from the transfer portal.

We also are fortunate to have the talent level we do at the skill positions. I wouldn’t trade Ahlers, Harris or Mitchell for anyone. I do have some misgivings about our defensive backfield. On one play last night the Cincy receiver was so alone he could have had his own zip code. Some youth apparent there too.

I’m sure there are other opinions out there but the above is mine. My opinions above DO NOT mean that I don’t love and appreciate every young man who wears the purple and gold. GDP. A forever fan.
