    Delusional much?

    We didn't stand a chance in this game from the moment it was put on the schedule, stop being so critical of the performance. Miss State has elite talent that on it's worst days is still better than a lot of teams on their best days. You can't teach size, speed or pure athletic ability.

    There is a reason the Bulldogs are ranked in the Top 25 and we are not. The faster most people understand this, the more enjoyable the rest of the season will be and the more you will appreciate why a new coach needs several years to make meaningful changes. Rebuilding a program is a marathon not a sprint.

    I was not upset of the performance just upset at the mistakes we made .

    Guy beating us over the middle because our guys could not keep up with the speed no problem but backside LBs letting Fitzgerald walk in because they gave up on the play that's a huge problem.

    OL played OUTSTANDING & DL did a pretty good job for the most part.

    But Raymond should be taken out back and beaten for trying to run it out the endzone

    I have come to the conclusion that we are what we are. Go back how many years you want and it's a roller coaster of wins and losses. Until we have several seasons of 9-3, 10-2, 11-1 and win the SBC year after year, than other conferences see that we don't belong in the SBC, they might come knocking on our door. It's a catch 22, win and you get the recruits you want. You get the talent recruits you want and you win......Till then enjoy Sat. nights at the swamp.......

    I would be surprised if seating is not reduced slightly when the upgrades occur.

Some of the reaction to the game, I believe, is a reaction to the over the top coronation of Napier before he had coached a game. And even more so after we had beaten an inferior opponent in our first game. I have to admit, reading some on this forum, you would have thought Miss St was in trouble with the Cajuns coming to town. So when the results looked very similar to what we have experienced in the past, people matched hyperbole with hyperbole to prove a point. The reality is, in the game against Miss St, people saw what they wanted to see. If you saw "better effort" "more discipline" than Hud's teams, you had to be looking for that and saw what you wanted to see. The results does not support that theory. However, I don't think (at least I hope not) that anyone is suggesting that Napier is in trouble after two games. But I also don't think he has done anything to be announced as the savior or legend of this football program. Much of what I have read about Napier on here I remember reading about Hud a few years ago, we all know how that changed. Whatever the reasons, Hud is gone and Napier is here, we have to let him turn this program into his organization which will not happen over night, but it also doesn't protect him from any criticism. He is a first time head coach, there will be mistakes, but ultimately it's about how we fare in conference and recruiting. Until then, I would hope for less hyperbole and more good discussion. My 2 cents, which I am not sure is even worth that much.
    Less hyperbole on a fan message board is very much of a "stretch" goal. After all, fan is short of fanatic. At times, emotion trumps logic when discussing our team. Goes on everywhere, not just here.

    He's been using the same bait for months. You're right that it's obviously very good bait. Either that, or the fish are slow learners.
