If we take money out the equation, then Hud should be fired, without doubt. We are saddled with watching this program go down another notch next year, it's sad. It is inexcusable, to get in this position and not be able to do anything about it. In the future, when considering a coaches salary, we must also include having on hand the money to be able to fire him so we don't get into this predicament again.
There were two times when Techs defense was so busy shifting left and right that Navy sent a guy right up the middle untouched. That would normally have been a play Tech would have stopped but they were so thrown off doing other things.
I'll say it again... Hud needs to find the second coming of Brian Mitchell. He needs a superstar athletic QB that plays like a king. In reality, he needs to get the smartest QB with a great arm and instinct for passing... but that just isn't Hud.
Hud doesn't understand that he's losing his support. He can get it back. But he needs to humble himself and admit (at least to himself) what his strengths are... and what his weaknesses are. He just doesn't strike me as the kind of learning machine that sees his flaws. And it NEVER begins with bad mouthing your audience. If the audience boos you... you suck. The audience does not suck. You do. There aren't enough soft fans to coddle you... even with the assistance of a radio jockey. Internalize the criticism and either step down or step up.
Our fourth string QB ran the practice squad the past three weeks because he ran the triple option in High School. Otherwise we would have been really screwed.
But as many have noted recently, with the new AD coming and the total support of Doc S, we are really on our way. Great things are ahead for us.
Our pass defense was extremely bad this year and lost us some games
