I have talked to more than one fan this week that believes we will not win another game this season. For someone who thought the worst case scenario was a 6-6 season, this possibility is scary. So let me be clear -- I don't think we will finish 2-10. I also still believe we will stumble into a 6-6 season. But the 2-10ers do have a point: how can we win games if we cannot score points?
We have games against Syracuse, Duke, UVA, Maryland and Wake Forest. All of those teams have major issues like we do. Our defense is better than all of those teams. Most of those games will break our way. If we can find just a few executable plays on offense we should win at least three of those games.
We will be heavy underdogs against NC State, Florida State and Clemson. But none of those teams are well coached juggernauts. I expect at least one of those games will be close enough for us to steal a win. But then again, I pick BC to win every week.
I think coaching is hurting this team. I think we have real flaws. But there is just too much talent, too strong a defense, and too much pride among the players for us to bottom out.
All that said, if we finish the season with 10 straight losses, Spaz would surely be fired.
