Spaz is pathetic and Bates shouldn't wait to fire him
What did Spaz say to his players and coaches at half? "That's enough." "Nice 30 minutes, now let's hurry up and get out of here." That was a waiving of the white flag if I've ever seen one. We showed a little fight towards the end of the first half, but Rettig got picked and that seemed to be the end of it. We don't have the same talent as Florida State, but most of our early mistakes were breakdowns. These guys either aren't being coached well anymore or have stopped listening. Either way, it makes for some painful viewing.
Just some notes:
- This is the fourth time that Spaz's teams have failed to score double digits.
- This is the 15th time in 44 games that Spaz's teams have scored 14 points or less.
- Spaz is now 0-5 against the spread.
- This is the fourth time a Spaz team has lost by 21 or more.
I was of the belief that BC should not fire Spaz midseason. I felt he deserves these losses on his record and the change won't benefit BC much. Tonight's disaster changed my mind. Why keep him? He is just doing further damage to the players' psyches and burning redshirts. Fire him now and get a jump start on the search and give the players a little signal that things can and will get better.
I'll have second viewing thoughts and grades up late Sunday.
