Not miss an easy 90 yard touchdown throw and then follow it up with the snap hitting the motion guy inside the 5......there's a dozen more
I 100% agree. We looked awful yesterday. And I have faith that WF will make the changes necessary. Unlike the NFL/NBA etc, you can't just get new players mid-season or via free agency. It takes time. Don't forget, one of the big knocks of CJs recruiting was that he wasn't necessarily getting players with the highest FB IQ. A significant part of our team is still made up of those players.
cj was not a good recruiter. but 7 of our 11 offensive starters vs memphis were recruited and signed by fritz including some juco transfers. and fritz is supposed to be some sort of an offensive mastermind. couple those two facts and im going to lay the blame on the guy who is getting paid a boatload to fix things, not coaches from years past. its time to start holding the present people involved with this program accountable.
I'm not trying to bash the point you made about 7 of the 11 offensive starters being signed by Fritz. However, he was recruiting with CJ's record.
your right but frost at ucf was recruiting off an 0-12 season the year before he got there and hes now won 13 games in 2 years and went to a bowl in year 1. and he had never been a head coach before. but somehow we thought a guy with 200 wins against the likes of east topeka community college was a good get. its not working in recruiting or on the field.
