I waited my 24 hours and I am glad I did. I was frustrated Saturday

after the game because I thought we were going to win, I thought this all week .
The fact that we got beat by 3 to an SEC (bad but SEC) shows just how far we have come recently. Anytime between 2016- and this year my frustration would have been that we are about to give up 50+ points and show no signs of improvement.
I did think leading 14-0 with under 90seconds in the half that we had a decent shot to win if we didn’t do something stupid. Well as you all know , we did . Throwing a “ screen” too hot and in the middle of the field is something that should never be done. I have coached kids for many years at all levels ( not college) and I make sure my QB understands: A) the situation, 90 seconds left and the lead going into half don’t F-up . B) throw the ball outside or over the top so even if it is not caught or tipped it won’t be picked. C) sometimes it is okay to take a sack.
All that being said , it is good that we are all pissed over a 3 point loss as opposed to apathy.
MH is 100 times better than Mo. Is HA our best chance to win , probably but we need to get the others some reps in a game and find out. Is the offense Boring, yes and it will cost us games. We can’t compete against bigger schools trying to play that kind of football, Logan understood it and Ruff understood it. MH had better learn it.
I still think we win 6 games this year, who here really had us 2-0 at this point or even 1-1. If we can win a couple in a row our confidence will improve and we will start to BELIEVE we are going to win those games ,like the one we had Saturday instead of knowing that even though we never trailed with time on the clock we all felt after the pick we would find a way to lose as opposed to find a way to win.
The team needs our support and we put this behind us and move on to Marshall. There is a lot left to play.
