I wanted to take a few minutes to put my thoughts out there. I am so sick of the negativity here, it is a hard time, but we need to embrace it and let this be a positive experience. First, the reason DOB was benched has nothing to do with him or Crowton, it has to do with the complete lack of decent receivers. DOB had the luxury of throwing to a receiver last year whom is now performing very well in the NFL, and defenses had to handle that. Without receivers CJ needs to be in the game, because obviously the defense will need to account for his mobility.
This school has a new President, AD, Football, and Basketball head coach. There is potential for some growing pains, I have not seen any other school go through such massive changes in a long time. If you expect Randy to come in and win against the number 8 team in the country with 5 freshman on D, and an offense with no real WR threat… you need to re-adjust your expectations.
Frankly we have seen our team grow A LOT, competing against GT and Clemson has given our young defense amazing experience -- if some of our senior leaders can get healthy and CJ's last game wasn't a fluke, we could see some seriously fun games to give us some momentum into 2012.
