RE: Jackie Williams is gone
We were getting better and showing momentum, too.

Memphis was probably better than us going in, but not 40 points better.

We never got off the bus. A complete and total breakdown. If I'm antsy about McGee at all, it's the egg we laid against Memphis. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt, though, and chalk it off as a lesson learned (unless it happens again).

And Tulane. It also seemed like the team started off slow in most games. I'm just looking for more consistency across the board this season. We should flashes of greatness at time last year, and then we should flashes of whatever the hell the Memphis game was.

Tulane was bad too, but at least the offense did OK. No excuse to give up 55 to Tulane.......ever. With that said, I'm looking for some real improvement on defense. I can't wait for the season to get here!

Maybe that is the attitude and culture that need to be changed. IIRC he said a couple of times that practice was pathetic that week.

If we take care of the ball, we beat Tulane. We were never in the Memphis game.

True, the Memphis game was a disaster of historical proportions. I hope I never have to witness a game like that again anytime soon!

RE: Jackie Williams is gone
All first season (at a school) coach should get the same "slack" Bama gave Saban after losing to UL Monroe in his first season. There are more than one "first season WTF losses" among many coaches who are not totally familiar with their personnel (and their personalities / capabilities) until the second season with the team. It would be less expected in year two but a one game gaffe can still occur in year 2. A lot can be attributed to another FBHC getting lucky with new personnel who surprise.
