None of us are hating on Green.

We are hating on the inability of the coaching staff to recognize that someone is struggling and the need to have someone more effective take over.

I was thinking about this. I don't hate Green. I like him a lot as a player and a person. I appreciate his effort to go from being buried in the depth chart last year to almost winning the UAB game. I more take issue with the staff and the lack of transparency when declaring that both QBs would play. We had a winnable game in our hands, but the offense appeared to have been managed as if we were being blown out. We never saw if we had the capability to step on their necks with McCaffrey in the game. I guess the score finally met our expectations.

Really, I am very pleased with the fight those kids showed today. Based on talent and efforts, there are still many winnable games remaining on the schedule. My angst is directed towards the offense not putting Rice in a position to win; and that is on the staff. Wiley turned the ball over, but Wiley didn't lose the game for Rice today.

What exactly are you smoking? In the 4Q alone he had 3 picks (2 of which were inexcusable), one fumble (we recovered) and 3 runs for losses (he tripped over himself twice). The score was 17-17 at the 12 minute mark before the miscues began. Tell me again how Green did not lose the game for Rice? Sure, you can blame the coaches for keeping him in after his first-- and then second-- interceptions, but it is he who handed Arkansas the game on a silver platter.

Walt, please desist with the invectives. Please re-read and think through my comment. Who put Green in the position to still be in the game? We are all aware of Green's limitations. However, none of us are in a position to address them for this game. Someone else, however, was perfectly able to pull Wiley after the first interception but choose not to do so. In my opinion, that is where the blame should be directed.

What I think happened was the team, mostly behind Green, played well for 35 or so minutes. Then Ark caught us and took the lead, and we - as a team -panicked. It was on the staff to settle us down.


Now we are 0-1 - as expected. Sure, we all had hope during the game that maybe we could hang on, but the ice we skate on is too thin. We have to play without error.

Green is OK. McC probably will be better, but I was not impressed today. We can win with either. Or not.


Unlike most of y’all, I don’t know the best thing to do, but I do know AFAIAC, this is Bloom’s last chance.
