I just don’t get the mindset that cancelled would-have-been losses are a net positive for a young, inexperienced team desperately in need of on-field growth.

There's pro's and con's.

A. It can provide that much needed experience. And if it goes well, a nice esteem boost.

B. If it goes right into a major ass-kicking, it can be debilitating to the teams morale and seriously hurt recruiting.

 

I think most of the board see option B happening, unfortunately. The net benefit to the team would be negative.

SMU and Houston kicked our ass last year and it didn’t hurt recruiting. Also don’t think those losses hurting team morale is what lost us those games the rest of the way. Get the experience, have more on-field time together to click, and win some conference games and recruiting would keep going just fine imo.

Also, I’m not very worried about recruiting right now. I’m more concerned on how we develop the guys we have, because it’s hard to imagine recruiting getting much better than it’s been the last two years. Until we start winning the conference and pushing into the top 25, we have recruited about as well as you can expect. Those guys are sophomores and freshmen. I think their development is what’s really going to make or break things for the Littrell era, as opposed to current high school juniors and seniors who won’t be in a position to be impact players for us for another 4 years or so.

YESSS!!!!! If we don't get the experience against good teams or even experience overall, it'll be tough to compete

Plus, we don’t want our boys getting the coronavirus. Thought someone should mention that. 

I wonder how many of the people complaining about this and the team being to cautious were the same ones blaming, I believe it was Memphis, their coaches for letting their players get on a party bus?
