as much as i make fun of miami, it's pretty easy to overlook or get used to its obvious deficiencies. it's constantly being judged by its prettier rival. it lacks the cultural amenities and geography of athens but that just makes it easier to do sh!t. guess we'll just go to heuston woods. or disc golf. that's a sweet course. the campus handily thwarts the campus body, the male campus body. as tacky as a majority of its women are, i can't complain too much considering i married one. luckily i knew the rugrats

The roster had big holes and we had a year long of a cadre of remaining upperclassmen that were pouting and throwing a tantrum that the prior staff was no longer there. People have no idea the shenanigans that staff had to deal with by team leaders that first year to get buy in by year 2 (you know, when they won a conference title). Took some guys leaving and some guys growing up to detoxify that locker room.

That will not be an issue on this team. This roster is hungry to finally be led. The limitations on this team are that the prior staff did a crappy job of putting a roster together and coaching up the talent it did have.

I think you're a little easy on Jones for his part in not getting the buy in from those guys. It's a 2 way street... but that roster was far more talented than a 4-8 team despite the depth issues. You could see the talent on display in that Oklahoma game. They had the players to really compete and do big things. The staff never got the buy in and wasn't great at managing games (never was great a managing games, but ultimately got he buy in year 2 and did a solid job).

Not too easy on him. I saw the players acting like spoiled brats first hand in that spring. That locker room was thin and toxic the winter and spring of 2010.

If you recall I was pretty sure that summer that the season was going to be a sh!tshow.

I would agree more with Rath on this one. Butch tried really hard to get buy in and it just didn't work. It took a losing season to snap them out of it. The roster was also incredibly thin at several spots. Receiver corp was very thin with the USC transfer going down in the first game with an ACL tear, DJ Wood with injuries to his shoulder and elbow where he probably shouldn't have been even playing, McClung with a plate in his shoe as a true freshman for his turf toe, and Munchie burning his red shirt to fill in at WR because there were no warm bodies. I remember Wolfe had to play what seemed like every snap on the defensive side and he would just look out of gas.
