I don't know where the breakdown in this team is, but it is monstrously huge.

3rd down efficiency 1-15.
Cant run the ball, cant win in the Valley.

This team lacks talent at QB and the Oline, but have been out coached every game this year and has been the difference. Not just Elliott sucking, but defensively sucking as well when we need someone to step up.

Get Carerra out on passing downs, take out the slow inside linebackers. Defensive 3rd downs lost this game. Yeah, so did the garbage offense, but the 3rd down packages in the second half fucking sucked.

Shouldn't care when a team was 0-5 and wish I didn't.
Think Purple...lets think Gold as in Championships!!!

I wonder how many yards they had in the 2nd half

They have to give one of the of the other Qb's a shot Sampson and Johnson are not the answer.

First two games we have leads at the half and lost both.
Outcoached in adjustments maybe.

Hopefully the players can take something from this season and use it to improve themselves. Times of adversity are often when we have the most personal growth and they help you really appreciate it when the good times come back around. It doesn't really seem likely that we'll win a game this season, which sucks obviously, but when they're done with football, these young men will continue on with their lives, hopefully stronger having gone through this.

I try to stay positive whenever I can, but it doesn't really seem like there's much to be positive about on the field right now.

I really don’t have any words for today’s game or season so far. It’s very likely we won’t win a game this season. SIU is the only likely chance we have left.

Whatever the issue our team is having, I hope the coaches, players, or administration fixes it, fires it, or recruits for it. I don’t want us to be the bottom of the MVFC. We’ve had about 4-5 years where we were relevant nationally and in the MVFC. I hope we can get back to that next year.

I don't think anyone will argue that the young men on this team are excellent people. I'm sure they will be successful in whatever they choose to pursue.

I "use" this board to discuss football, not the players individually as "worthy/non-worthy" people. I wish each one of them the best that life has to offer.

With that said, If I hear Coach Elliot say one more time "there's things we need to work on" and "we need to do better", I just might go all Godzilla on Tokyo.

I didn't expect anywhere near the team we have had the last two years, but I also didn't expect this complete debacle.
