RE: I'm sorry to have to do this but some of you need to grow up.

Here's the thing. If Whit was delivering 8-4 seasons reliably and we were just having trouble getting "over the hump" I'd be all onboard with this sentiment.

But as it is, we've had 7 wins or fewer in 3 of the last six years, and it's due to the same problem every single time: terrible offense, which we have even in the good years. We invariably have a solid to excellent defense, and we invariably pair it with a terrible offense, built with not terrible players. Terrible offense due to bumbling and poor skill mistakes and lack of discipline and lack of imagination.

The O line generally plays solidly over time. The run game is generally solid over time. We've had some good play callers. I liked a lot of the offensive game that got called last night. But poor QB and receiver corps play invariably leave us one-dimensional.

The fact that we have a solid to excellent defense year after year tells me that the man can coach when he wants to, and the pieces for an offense are certainly in place.

There is something that is being done—or not getting done—year after year—that leads the "throw game" to flounder terribly. And the fact that it is the same problem year after year for many years now tells me that Whitt likely has no intention of changing whatever it is that he is doing—or not doing—on the offensive side of the ball, no matter who is playing or carrying the OC flag.

I hope he sticks with Troy as OC from here on out until he retires, because it's clear that the nameplate on the OC's door is not the problem, and the kids deserve to at least be able to build long-term relationships over their tenure as players.

Meanwhile, we know what we'll get with Whitt:

- Win most OOC games with a shaky run-heavy offense
- Hear announcers tell us how good Whit is OOC
- Lose more than we win in conference as the offense falls apart entirely by midyear
- Get to a forgettable bowl game
- Hear announcers tell us how good Whit is in bowl games
- Win bowl game with a still-shaky but generally better offense than was seen all year

The OC and the players don't have any influence at all; it's been the same show for years regardless of OC and who was playing.

It's been a long time. I'm just ready for a change of pace. Maybe we can get some other middle-of-the-road coach and lose all our OOC games and our bowl game while winning all of our conference games against the bottom of the PAC, having a great offense but a terrible defense. That'd at least be different.

I'm just getting bored. Don't get me wrong, I'll wear the colors no matter what happens. But last night's game was insulting in the 4th quarter. Shameless, even.
