Post Accountability
Keff or any reporter that's reading this, please ask some questions to withers that hold him accountable for this crap product on the field. Instead of general blanket questions a middle schooler can come up with like "what does this team need to do to beat ULL on a short week after this loss?" How about some in depth detailed football questions explaining why we suck every week and haven't been competitive. All I've heard after every post game conference are softball questions. Don't be afraid to question his actions. It's your job.

More softball type questions in the press conference. Nothing that really digs into why we aren't seeing improvement. Sounded like Keff did press him on one response and Withers said he didn't Coach well.

The reason why there is little improvement is that we are two years into a total shit can and rebuild that I guess is actually going to take 3-4 years. I would be okay with it if I thought that EW would be obliged to stay 3-4 years after his first winning teams. The reality is if he wins eight games and wins a bowl game he is probably gone.

They would rather not poke the bear and play this coaching staff's "messenger boy" instead of doing any investigative journalism. Hell, anyone can post stats in a column and call it a report. Do some digging. Press people for answers. Don't just settle for the obligatory PC answer.

Post Re: Accountability
I was just watching the presser … And he is so condescending to everyone in the room, like he's going to be able to fix this and just leave them alone. This program is so disappointing on all levels, that it breaks my heart. I still put my flag out every Saturday, but it's becoming harder and harder to support a group of people who doesn't seem to want to do anything better.

It's systemic, Trauth, Teis and on down.

Not only was the coaching search poorly executed, they didn't find the answer and we're (literally) in worse shape than we were w/ Fran.

ULM hired viator around the same time we hired our coach if not a couple months prior to withers and look where they are. (1st in the sunbelt). So if viator can put together a better team in Monroe Louisiana at a better pace than withers in a place like San Marcos Texas then we have a real problem.

I want to agree with this, but we were arguably in much worse shape with the way Fran left us than they were.

It's astonishing that Teis turned a blind eye to Fran running this program into the ground. What's even more astonishing, is that if Fran hadn't retired, Teis would have let him stay around another couple years.

Teis has always turned a blind eye to the program. Teis has the personality of a grapefruit and the warmth of a snow pea - he has zero passion, solipsistic and displays narcissistic tendencies. Trauth and Teis have always turned a blind eye to our entire athletic program. It starts at the top. Until we band together and hit the eject button - you just better buckle up and embrace the suck.

how about you have a clue as to what's out there first.

you whiny motherfuckers who don't pay attention to recruiting, attrition, or injuries and bitch about the end result are the absolute worst. if you can't watch this team and see where we're headed, regardless of win/loss this year, you should stop watching altogether.

Saul, you are the epitome as to why there are so few posters on this board. I was simply asking for more information from reporters to dig for more answers as to why this team is unsuccessful. You resort to namecalling right away in your response to my reasonable and prudent question. Any time someone has different thinking than you, you degrade them as if you're right ALL the time. Been lurking on this board since 2010 and noticed it on numerous occasions. You're not the only one that knows about football, recruiting and coaching etc. finally this board is to express our thoughts on txst football. If we can't do that without an asshole shooting down our every post, maybe Saul can post every post on this board and see how it goes. (Hint, it'll probably go as well our football season this year)
