Brace latest football alum to rebuke Spaz
Ron Brace took to Facebook today to vent his feelings on BC Football. It sparked a long series of comments and pointed criticism of Spaz. Other young football alumni weighed in too. With Ron's permission, I have posted screen shots of the exchanges.
Many think the fan criticism of Spaz is unfair and excessive. But you really have to worry when guys who played under Spaz are so vocal. BC and Gene rationalized and justified the Spaz hire because of the love and respect he had from the players. It didn't ring true then and now guys like Brace -- An All ACC player and Second Round Draft pick -- are defending Jags and slamming Spaz.
Brace doesn't speak for all football alumni nor the current players. Who knows? Perhaps the new assistants are bringing a new attitude and new energy to the team. My guess is they're not and many current players have checked out on their head coach. College Football is a tough, emotional sport. To succeed you need player buy-in and guys going in the same direction. I don't think we have that under Spaz. The Hot Seat is going to be scorching come Fall.
