The same bowl Larry got us into the last two times we were eligible.

All kidding aside, if Withers can pull off an upset in the last three (tall order), he'll have hit the mark I said was minimum to buy him another year (relax... I'm talking in my eyes).

If he can pull off two upsets, then I'll be truly shocked.

EDIT: Still shouldn't change a damn thing regarding Larry. Homeboy needs to go. Particularly since he can't take credit for the win, nor should he shoulder the burden for the losses. His shame lies in the multitude of other things he's failed at and done poorly in his time here.

We lost to App by 7 last year in a fashion to the tune of Withers blowing the game yet we’re 21 point dogs this year? Someone please explain how Withers has not degressed if that’s the case..

Season on the line this Saturday

Well, first... That is a line, not the outcome. But to be fair, I don't know if we'll cover this game, so the results could end up worse. But blasting him for regressing and using the spread as evidence is really a bad bad idea.

Also, App state has improved quite a bit this season over last (in my opinion). I absolutely believe we are a better team than we were last season. But how much better? Not nearly to the degree that we should be improving, and that is why I don't think they'll cover.

Lastly... the USA, UTSA, or even Georgia Southern games are great examples of Withers not being able to close out a game for us in a coaching capacity. Hell, even the Georgia State game where we were up what? 33-10 in the 4th and let them back in the game.

So yeah, I don't think we've regressed at all. I just don't think we've improved to the point that we should have by now (I expected either 4-5 or 5-6 wins this season, and I don't see us making that mark this season).

We were probably 20+ point underdogs last year too when we lost by 7.

Crazy concept that games don't always end up how they're expected to on paper, I know. That may have been our best played game of the season last year.

Using your dumb criteria for progression/regression:
We lost to Georgia State last year and just beat them 3 days ago.
We lost to NMSU last year and beat them a week ago.
We lost to ULM by 18 last year and lost to them by 6 this year.
We lost to Louisiana by 17 last year and lost to them by 15 this year.
We lost to UTSA by 30 last year and lost to them by 4 this year.

Literally every single game against an common opponent we've played them to a better point spread year over year. But you're gonna point to a game that hasn't even been played yet as a sign of regression....

HOLY SHIT! x is Larry!

We lost by a smaller margin than last year, so clearly we are improving!

FUCK YOU LARRY!

Those words do not work within my theory, and therefore are not counted.

This is why I love college football. Who would have thought the we would have lost to GA So by two, and they go on to beat App St by 20. Now we're sitting as 21 pt dogs against App St.

and if we had a coach that wasnt adamant about taking safeties or could find someone who could kick a chip shot through the uprights we would not be talking about the loss at all. i mean they had a kicker who could ding the ball against the uprights and still get points out of it.

everett withers-leading the nation in safeties taken and snaps taken inside his own 10 yard line.
