This team is not as bad as it has looked the past two weeks. Spaz will do a TOB impression and lower expectations with the media. He'll play down our talent and make it seem like things are much worse than they are. But the problems we have start with the coaching. The final possession before the half was either incompetence or cowardice. Neither is good.
Our offensive line -- the lifeblood of this program -- is in shambles. That is not a talent issue either.
But regardless or how you feel about Xs and Os or talent or QBs, this team is not even fun to watch.
I feel sorry for Chase Rettig. He wasn't given much to do and looked promising with what he did. The defense looked good in stretches, but clearly started in a fog.
I still think our schedule is forgiving enough for us to go to a bowl game but we will never win the ACC with Spaz as head coach. He won't take the risks or manage the game or season in go for broke mentality. He loves BC but he shouldn't be our head coach.
Like the TOB era, I don't think we will ever bottom out under Spaz. Instead we'll just have frustrating football for a few years.
I'll hopefully be in a better mood Sunday and will have my second viewing thoughts and grades late Sunday night.
