Can't possibly be worse than 63-17, even if it's worse than 63-17. We were actually a 2pt favorite in that game. This week, everyone knows we are going to the woodshed.
I have not given up hope on Muschamp, primarily b/c he did a great job his first two seasons here, and it's tough losing a 3 year starter at QB week 1, even if that 3 year starter is a middle of the pack QB. The buyout will get him another season, but he better take advantage of it. Personally, I would give him a couple more seasons as long as the recruiting is trending in the right direction. He has by my reckoning given us one of the top 10 or so seasons in program history (9 wins, bowl win over Michigan) A little patience might pay off in one of two ways: possible he rights the ship, or better replacement available.
Sorry in advance to let you down. We cannot score points. CU will be looking to extinguish the tiny flame of hope once and for all. Unfortunately all the talk of the hapless ACC has been taken personally and they will delight in trucking another SEC team.
Yes, by all means fire him after this season with no good alternative. After all, a continuing parade of coaches is what made us the powerhouse that we are now. I'm sure quality candidates will be flocking to Columbia to beg for their four year stint before you want to fire them also.
I am not advocating for firing Muschamp b/c I don't think there is a better alternative presently, but this is not a well coached team, and if the next class falls apart it's over regardless. But give the man credit where credit is due. He walked into a terrible situation and held it together the first season. The second season, whether folks want to admit or not, was about as good as it gets around here with 9 wins including a marquee win over Michigan. Granted, Michigan was down, as were others, and we benefited from that. I think our best bet is deeeeep prayer that he gets better at coaching, and keeps some talent moving in. I have no doubts whatsoever about his knowledge of the game. My best guess is that there is some truth to the overwork rumors, and he tends to make the players uptight rather than relaxed and confident. But coaches can improve also.
Well, there is your garden variety disappointment, and then there is a total ship show.
This has the look of a disaster in the making with ATM coming off a bye week.
It seems to me we are consistently getting top 25 recruiting classes, so either the pundits (and coaches) are overvaluing the talent, AND/OR the staff is undercoaching them.

You hit the nail on the head. But it would be hard to sell advertising with a two sentence article.
Contemplating changing my name to Drinkwitz, or maybe Drinkwitzme.
I'm encouraged after that offensive explosion- 20% above our 20ppg average.
Wins over Vandy and App St will get everyone's hopes up for another headscratching, inconsistent mess of performance at ATM. Don't care to think about Clemson right now. But Muschamp is not going anywhere unless there is a total collapse in recruiting.
I thought the first two seasons he did a great job on D without a lot of top flight talent. Now it seems like better athletes can't get in the right place, especially in the secondary
Since we are averaging about 20 pts a game, you could get shut out and be within 20. Maybe we get to 30 this week. Looks like it's going to be a beautiful night and a big crowd.
Our OOC schedule is tough this year. UNC is no powerhouse, but different than playing SC State at home. Appy St ranked 20th?? Not sure what to make of that but it is what it is. And Clemson. Contrast with UK's OOC and see why they will likely always go to a better bowl, which is any bowl this year
3 game win streaks are hard to come by when you average less than 20pts a game against P5 competition.
That might be generous considering never beaten ATM...
Make your own power poll. You are just as qualified as anyone else.
I thought at least we would have a fundamentally sound defense to lean on after four years. Defense is up and down, and offense can't score more than about 20 pts.
No need for Bentley to come back-the coaches have Hilinski playing just like him.
Don't cry about injuries. Don't cry about officiating. Don't throw trash on the field. What's so hard about that?? Cocks win AND cover in a typically tight contest
Jones stands tall in his pocket. Play clock is down to 10 seconds...wait a minute...Time out as officials storm onto the playing field. What exactly is going on here, Verne???
Great handle, especially for this Comment crowd.
