  1. Right now we spend at the top of the conference we’re in. So success is competing for conference championships and winning them. Next year, or whenever we join AAC, we’re going to be middle of the pack in spend and our expectations should adjust accordingly.
  2. I guess I could be wrong, but the first home game every single year proves that our freshman show up ready for football. Half the time we promptly get embarrassed (esp the last 3 years) and they slowly start falling off. I don't think there is anything wrong with our orientation or Eagle Camps, etc. The problem is the team has a losing record by the end of September nearly every single year. It, also, can't be great staring over at the half-empty alumni side. The last time we had a winning record at the end of Sept was 2018. We were 4-0 riding into the Sept 29 game against LaTech and set an all time attendance record.
  3. Whatever the record, I think he stays if he wins the conference. Regardless of bowl game performance. Just like last year after the UTSA upset and 5 game win streak it was going to be nearly impossible to fire him. Winning the conference definitely keeps his job (and honestly it should). So for me, no axe is dropping as long as we're in the hunt for the championship. What'll be sickening is if we win the conference (or make it to the title game and lose)...then follow that up with another blowout bowl loss. Wren will have a tough decision on his hands and we will have already missed the early signing period.
  4. Thrown to the wolves?! LOL. I guess Mason Fine and Scott Hall got thrown to the wolves, as well? Those guys had similar practice time experience, but from the first step they took onto the field in their first ever game (both in game 1 of their true freshman seasons) you KNEW they had something. Gunnel and Ruder have both looked off, for whatever reason. Could Ruder be better today than he was a year ago? Sure. Could Gunnel be better than 2-3 weeks ago? Sure. What I said is from what I saw of them both on the field---which is a tiny fraction of the amount of time that the actual paid coaches have seen of them. Having said that, if Aune throws another pick 6 to start the next game he very well could be benched and everyone here will get their wish. He will have deserved that benching. I just don't think we're going to get much from any of the guys backing him up. Hope we don't have to find out, and if we do that I'm wrong.
  5. My opinion, based solely on what I've seen in games this year and last, is that you have to ride with Aune. This team will get to .500 with him driving the bus. With the others we may not win another game. I know the knee-jerk reaction is that the backup has to be better or kill the season and play for the future, but I'd rather see us get to a respectable record. I have no doubt that we're going to see a coaching change after this season. The stat that shows our number of winning seasons, or under .500 seasons since coming back from D1-AA is embarrassing enough. Get the program to where .500 is the floor. At the very least Seth has done that. We actually look and act like a D1 program now. Next we need to take the step to compete for championships.
  6. I’m still looking forward to Oct 15. LaTech at home is usually always a good game and weather should be awesome by then. Outside of that I’m with you. Also, this is something you would never hear McCasland saying. Difference in perspective and expectations is clearly evident.
  7. I assume it must be difficult planning for this when you have just one home game a year that draws this must interest. For us it’s the smu game and we most definitely botched that one this year, too. Logistics issues everywhere you turned.
  8. I guess I predate you. Unt90 was a beating, but at least he wasn’t wrong.
  9. At the end of the day it's up to him. He's absolutely been one of the best college football coaches during the past 2 decades. The question is what is his motivation. Does he still want to spend the time and energy on football and not other things? Everything on the interwebs and news makes it sounds like he's done with the 24x7 grind and is only involved part-time at Texas. If he's all-in, you'd be crazy not to consider him. If he's not, you'd be crazy to.
  10. Winning cures all problems. USC administration went right back to the Leach tree with Lincoln Riley.
  11. My guess is that this is more of an issue out in rural areas where cell and or high speed broadband may not be as reliable or available. Still a lot of folks cutting the cord don’t switch to streaming platforms, but just go exclusively over the air. That’s where radio coverage helps, but it is still always only going to be limited by the range of the specific radio station we partner with. I much prefer to use the varsity app. It’s even better this year than the confusing mess that is TuneIn. So anyone complaining here should give that a try if you have access to internet.
  12. This exact same thing happened last year the day of the UAB game. Paciolan needs to lose some business.
  13. Same problem here. Last weekend parking. This weekend digital tickets. SMH
  14. This. I appreciate that they sent an apology. To those asking if we feel different if we win…I know you’re not new, so you KNOW we have watched an absolute metric ton of not bad, but HORRIBLE football over the last 20-30 years. When I’m sitting here telling you the gameday product was bad, you have to know it was terrible. I show up rain or shine and have for over 20 years. Again, I’m appreciative of the apology. Now get it fixed.
