My short-term expectations are low. We should be a bowl team this year, but I don’t think we can win the conference. Long term I have the same expectations I had for Jags and TOB -- I want to win consistently and be in the mix for the conference every few years and eventually break through.
I will call it as I see it and hope to bring the thoroughness and fairness to my game reviews and stats that I’ve had in the past. I also don’t plan on letting this blog become a sounding board for the excuse makers. I hate when a new coach comes in and all the problems are blamed on the previous regime. Spaz knew what he was getting into. Now he has to play his cards. Blaming TOB or Jags is lame. We laugh at Notre Dame fans when they blame Ty for Weis’ failing or NC State fans when they blame Amato for TOB’s troubles. Let’s not do that here. Spaz’s record will be Spaz’s record.
Spaz is a good guy. Hopefully he will be the right guy for this job at this time. Let’s go Spaz! Let’s go Eagles!
