  1. The opening line is Delaware -20 - don't know about that one. FYI, Gattuso actually said that it falls on him during the teleconference.

  2. I'm going to just leave this here: Albany's best win is over Morgan State...and that was a "by a nose hair". Why? Because Morgan State owns TWO WINS. The aberration against NC A&T (truly shocking). There only other win is against downgraded (to DII) Savannah St. Our other win: St Francis, whose best win is against Delaware State. We barely survived that game as well. So, CAA YEAR 5...and we are barely getting by against two HORRIFIC...TRULY HORRIFIC football teams at the FCS level. This is not an institutional support problem (there are millions being poured into the program), though I will say we need a better lockerroom and that is a MAJOR issue at our level. It is not a league we are playing in problem (we competed better against the teams I mentioned above when we were an NEC team with 40 rides. It is not a facilities problem (aside from the lockerroom). It's arguably not even a coaching problem, per se. I say that because it is a LEADERSHIP problem. That is the core of coaching. So this may not solely be an X and O issue...rather a "do I want be lead by this group" issue. I wanted to give this Coach a major benefit of the doubt after his blowup at Andy Talley, which was quite ridiculous based on the situation. Little did we know that it would be a pre-cursor to a style of football coaching that I don't particularly like...one that lacks public accountability when MY TAX dollars and donations pay for the staff salary. I still have not heard Coach stand up and say, "FOLKS...THIS IS ALL ON ME...and I HAVE TO DO A BETTER JOB". That, would go a long way in my book. I've heard he's a great guy off the field...and community driven. Folks seem to really like him off the field. I am just no longer willing to give this group of Coaches the benefit of the doubt anymore. We WERE a football school with a very solid legacy at multiple levels (DIII, DII, FCS Non-Scholly, FCS Scholly (NEC)). We had a legendary Coaching tree. We had fans of other schools (talk to any ex-player or fan who went on that Montana trip about what those fans thought of our burgeoning program...it was NOTHING but respect) state we were a huge up and comer. Truth is, two schools that are our peers...Monmouth and Stony Brook are doing a lot more than we are...and that legacy we had at football is slowly being systematically destroyed. I am beyond giving ANY MORE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBTS TO THIS STAFF.

  3. I think I will have a lot of fun watching this team work this year. No expectations and a bunch of great young men working their butts off and doing well in school. That much is a guarantee (qualified because you can't control everything) with Coach Brown and despite criticisms, I really appreciate that.

  5. This is the ONLY way that I will give Gattuso the benefit of the doubt, any slack, or forgive him his football transgressions: Until that happens...well...I wish nothing but flat tires and dead batteries on Gattuso. Hopefully the man never freakin leaves his driveway and as Click said, Davis takes over as Interim. Even if Losetusso stays on the payroll. Yep, I'm that bored.

  6. P. S. This about how this... How is it possible that going into year 6 he still can't find a qb?Just think about how critical a qb is and this guy just can't find one that is worth a damn... I mean just think about that level of incompetence. So much revolved around a decent qb and this man just can't recruit one. That to me is shocking and a microcosm of the disaster that has been his regime. Next year we'll be told we are close... Just need a qb who isn't experienced to grow,need patience etc. And the racket will go on. I'm praying Benson was smart enough to limit buyout. Pray hard folks... Benson should probably think long and hard about naming Davis as interim hc even if they keep gg on payroll while they see what it will take in terms of buyout. I'm not sure they can afford to go into next season with no change considering how Gattuso is burning this program to the ground.

  7. Dude just be patient... What's your problem? It's not his game plan or his players, or his coaches. He was very clear 2 weeks ago... He doesn't know what's wrong or how to fix it. Just keep paying him maybe in year 6 this loser will buy a clue with the money spent on him.

  8. Not sure if I've posted in this thread or not but..... Is there any room on this bandwagon? This has been another embarrassment of a season.
