    That's more or less what I'm thinking. I'm prepared for a severe step backwards on the defensive side of the ball...just too much change. I think the O will be better, but we still don't have a feature back and the QB has yet to be consistent. I have little hope that Skip will finally adjust the game plan to his personnel, but here's hoping I'm wrong.

    7-5 regular season. We beat another AAC team for 6 straight bowl wins, and finish 8-5. Shortly afterwards, Skip Holtz resigns, and leaves when J'Mar's eligibility expires.

    And we're all better off for it.

    Why on earth would Skip resign?

    He's got everyone who signs his check by the balls.

    He's got 0 pressure to win or put butts in the bleachers.

    He can play golf at one of the top courses in the world.

    Why leave?

    This. He's our Jeff Bower.

    To be fair, I think I said in late 2012 that I'd happily take that deal.

    After revisiting, do you feel as fortunate to have what we have now that your expectations have been met? Not ragging on you, just asking how you feel 7 years later.

    Most of us thought our leadership would be able to grow our program with the kind of winning we've experienced over the past 5 years.

    USM actually grew while Bower was being mediocre and taking them to bowls all those years...

    This has been the "argument" the past several years. Some fans ask, "Is there nothing more?" Yeah, winning seasons, winning bowls is great, but what about a conference championship and an occasional finish in the Top 25? Other fans, like Dogfansince65, point to the very lean years, 3-9 ughs!, and say just be thankful we're not experiencing seasons like that.

    I was in the "is there nothing more" camp for awhile, but now, I am in the "I really don't care anymore" camp. I always hope Tech does well, and the football team is certainly no different. I just won't lose sleep over it...

    That’s my problem also.

    With the exception of last years bowl game, the product Holtz and Rockstar put on the field isn’t worth me driving to Ruston to watch. Sad.

    I don't care about the conference championship unless we are in or almost in the top 25. Those games are really only about the TV deal.

    But if we are in the Top 25, then the next game is guaranteed to be a loss.
