FIU post mortem

What. the actual. F@#K. :o

HEY GUYS IT DOESN’T MATTER BECAUSE VOLLEYBALL f***ing WON!!!

WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! CAN YOU FEEL THE EXCITEMENT???

Fire Judy! Fire Lambert!

OK, I went into this game expecting to lose, but all I wanted was to see improvement. I got it - we were way better and competed. What does that tell us?

  • Addition by subtraction: we were instantly better just because Mullen wasn’t calling the plays

Coaching and play calling still horrible, but at least it’s better.

I was calling it a loss after midway through the 3rd quarter. The team actually surprised me by actually having a chance to win it, but again the coaching and play calling at the end left me shaking my head and declaring a loss.

They got my hopes up just to F@#K up in the most colossal fashion ever. Should I be surprised? NO> sad thing is I expected this kind of F@#K up from our coaching staff. Had we not had a chance to win it, I’d be in a better mood, but it’s getting hard to follow these clowns. Is it basketball season yet?

and I’ll add this: The team looked TOTALLY uninspired the entire second half. No fire. Nothing. I put this on the coaches also.

Hey now. You need to curb your negativity. Volleyball won. “We are right where we want to be.”

Guys. We are on the precipice of doom. Our program could go winless and be the laughing stock of college football. Our stadium is going to look like FIUs at this rate.

When we were up 29-14 in the third quarter, I expected to lose. That’s bad. They’ve done it to us time and time again blowing leads. 0-5. If we didn’t start the game off kicking their ass, I wouldn’t be so pissed off. It’s consistently getting out coached and out played in the second half that kills me. Whatever. I’ll see you guys next week for another let down.

Things looked on the upswing in the first half but then Butch made adjustments. And like everyone said it looked like we were going to lose once the second half started getting underway.

This sounds awful, but honestly I hope we go winless. I fear that if we win even one game lambert will be saved. The only thing that saves us right now is a new AD and/or head coach.

Never ever go for two after driving down the field and scoring on an opening drive.It will usually come back to bite you and it bit the 49ers tonight.Just another reason to clean house and start over.

On the positive that’s the first time we played watchable football all year. Adkins put our offensive players in the best position to succeed and that hasn’t happened since the inception of the program.

Having said that this is a gut shot. How many high schools in the Charlotte area have not missed an XP in the five years we have missed them time and time again? Who thought that 48 yarder had any chance of going in? If it was 4th and 20 kick it, 4th and 2…You go.

If the O plays like that I think we win a game or two, but still is that enough?

The issues start at the top. It’s that simple. It’s like that in any disfunctional organization. Until Rose is gone she will continue to make poor hires. You guys screaming for Lambert to go should think about who’s going to hire the next coach. The same one who hired and extended and fired Major and the same one who hired Price with no head coaching experience and the same one that hired Lambert. I’m not saying that any of us had a crystal ball and knew they were bad (Jury still out a bit on Price) hires but the simple fact is that she hired them. She is the leader of this athletic department and has to bear the responsibilities for the poor performance over the past.

Wishing for this same person to hire our next coach is asking for trouble.

Better to hope she gets asked to retire or gets moved up to associate dean of athletic fundraising (forget who had that idea but I love it).

As far as her getting fired. That’s not going to happen. She has too much equity at the school to be fired. It will come in the form of retirement or a promotion out of the way.

I’m pretty much shutting down all hopes of success until that happens.

I don’t understand what the people above Judy are thinking.

How does someone keep their job with results this bad??? It just boggles the mind how people are allowed to just go on year after mediocre year with no accountability. If feel like I live in a different world. Seriously I have never had a job my entire life that performance like hers would not have gotten me fired.

I don’t understand it. I never will.

clt says congrats to the volleyball team

Women’s basketball starts soon. These are exciting times for Judy.

How do we go about recruiting kickers? Why do we or consistently miss extra points? That alone has cost us two or three wins. Most high school teams have better extra point kicking percentages than we do.

This is only our 5th year. Most of these high schools have had teams for a much longer time. You need to manage those expectations.

We have enough talent at holding opposing players in front of the refs.

at least the offenses finally moved the ball and scored points but im waiting for mens basketball season to begin
