"Rehashing" a blast from the past: The Blazers stole our Yin!
The original thread is here

Apologies for bumping up this post, but I wanted to check in with y'all to see what your feelings are about McGee, now that we've had 1 2/3 season under his belt.

I know the overall record is not what anyone wants nor expected, but I still want to know what everyone thinks. :)

I think there's still a general sense of hope and belief in McGee, although I think there's a lot of cause for worry. Offensively, we seem to be fine, although there's definitely room for improvement.

Defensively, McGee has put his faith in some assistant coaches that haven't gotten it done yet. I wonder if McGee will stick with those guys or look for a new defensive staff.

Either way, we don't lose many players this year, so expectations for next year are high. If McGee doesn't turn it around in 2014, then I think the fan base will completely turn on him.

Expectations for next year are high? Based on what? Do we have a QB that I'm unaware of? Will our defense improve from what it is over the course of a season?

To be perfectly honest, I don't believe this program is a bit better than it was the day McGee took over. I'm not saying he can't get there, but he sure as hell isn't close yet.

Based on the fact that McGee will have a veteran team and will be in his third year, people will expect a long-overdue bowl game. If there is no improvement, the fan base will turn on him.

What is the problem with that assessment?

You may feel differently, but I am stating what I think the UAB fan base thinks about McGee.

There are empty parking lots where the on campus stadium belongs.

Because I'm so weary of you posting stuff like this, I'm going to finally give in and support the effort for the on campus stadium...oh WAIT, I already support it! And SO DO ALL THE POSTERS ON THIS FORUM!!!

So who are you trying to convince!?

People expected the same thing this year. Hell, we had fans saying we were a 9 or 10 win team this season, and we'd have no trouble competing with Vandy. Now, we are sitting at 2-6 with little sign of life. Our fan base turned on our starting QB in favor of a backup senior QB who will do nothing for us in the future. I'd be shocked if AB came back, and I don't blame him.

I'll sit here and watch the same stupid predictions next preseason, and when you wonder why I don't think we'll win more than 5 games, I'll direct you to this thread.
