After being left at the alter, so o speak, by both Briles and Sumlin. Have we gotten PTSD that any hint of adversity means our Coach is gone or “checked out”? I know it was easy to say Sumlin checked out on that championship game years ago - one of the most disappointing losses in recent history. However, look at what Sumlin has done since. Has he ever won the big game? Maybe it was less a problem with Sumlin’s job hunt in 2011 than it was Sumlin being Sumlin? If that’s the case, then maybe we can throw out this fear that CTH checked out during our losses. Look at the facts, we aren’t as talented/good this year, injuries and play calling hasn’t always been ideal.
Really, this year’s results are more what we expected for last year. However, after the surprise success of last year, we all had our eyes on a National Championship. So, we are looking for any reason to point to why we lose and forgetting that we just weren’t as good/deep this year.
Of course, I’m rooting for UH to win out… and for Navy to lose the next two. Whatever the case, I’m not giving up… Go Coogs!
