On the sports last night psycho looking

Post by troutputz » October 30th, 2020, 4:14 am

Anyone see Gary on the local channel 5 sports last night? Man he looked rough! No smile, no upbeat what so ever!he looked like it wasn’t any fun for him at all.

Yeah, this is a common theme now. Gary has lost that excitement and fire he had.

It’s why I hope we hire Jay Hill before it’s too late and he’s gone.

I've noticed that also. I was hoping we would have hired Jay Hill last time around. I guess we'll see, but Gary looks and sounds uninspiring. Not his job, I suppose, but just my perception.

Nobody was more opposed to playing college football this fall than Gary. And it had nothing to do with COVID.

That's a good point. He was very clear about that. I just wish he could show a little enthusiasm now that we are in it.

Was it because our team is terrible? Hopefully we can close out the year beating on 4 of the dregs of the conference because I don't think we can hang with the first half of the schedule.

I'd also be interested in watching this video if anyone has it. I haven't been able to find it.

I thought GA looked very upbeat and engaged during last week's coaches show with Scotty. Hate to read between the lines but hopefully we haven't suffered more COVID hits to the roster to this week. Trying to work with a skeleton roster would make me a bit owly too.

In my opinion? I think he knew this team wasn't ready. I think he knew that they wouldn't be in a position to win many games and that it would reflect poorly on him, and that the longer the season is postponed the longer he stays off the hot seat. Coaches don't feel the pressure until they lose, and you can't lose if you don't play.

Thank you for clarifying. I have a hard time believe a type A football coach, former athlete, has lost the fire to compete so much that he would not play thinking he doesn't have the horses, rather than to go out and prove people wrong by competing. In my opinion,
that dog don't hunt.

That's fair. Again, this is my opinion and interpretation only. I can say confidently, however, that I have pretty close eyes and ears on the program and I know several people who work for the program who have confirmed my observation that Coach A was pushing pretty hard against having any type of a season.

That would be very disappointing.

Gary certainly doesn't have the same fire and hunger he had the first time around, but it would be pretty disappointing to say the least if what you are saying is true. I'm not saying you don't have good sources, but it isn't like Gary is even remotely close to the hot seat and playing this year is much better preparation for 2021 than taking the year off.

I could see that argument more holding up for certain coaches in high pressure jobs where their job is on the line this year. That isn't Gary's situation.

Gary has no input as to rather we would have a season. He may have thought it would be better not to have one, but once to other conferences started play it was over, by the way I think he may have been right..

Even if we go 0-8 it is much better to play than not to play. If nothing else, he would know what he has and would be more prepared going into next year. Our program is all about 2021 anyway. This year was never going to be a banner year.

Not that I don't agree with you all but saying that next year is our year and this is just kind of a practice year Well isn't that the same for all of the other schools as well. If we really struggled this year and the same teams are going to be back next year with mostly the same players does it really instill any more confidence that we will be better next year?

I tend to agree. Not to be overly pessimistic, but I honestly believe that the extra year of eligibility hurts us far more than it helps us. So we get the opportunity to keep some of our better players around for an extra year? All of the other teams do as well, and in most cases that helps them a heck of a lot more than it helps us.

No. This year being a do over helps us more than most.
