We need to win five of eight to reach a bowl game.. the goal set out by this staff at the beginning of the season

Anything short and there needs to be a serious sit down in December and a conversation needs to be had about 1) ditching this bullshiat offense or 2) moving on

as Windy said.. after year three, no more Mary Poppins

If the offense continues to look like this, I hope we look for a new OC with a new offense.
Do y’all think Fritz will do it?

What's the buyout versus annual?

The buyout for Fritz? Not sure and I’d be shocked if he got fired.

Fritz seems to be the type to go down with his ship. He would probably quit before firing 'his guy' who tore it up against texas southern and whoever else.

The offense isn’t the problem. Play calling, recruiting, and discipline are....

And execution. Pitching when he should have kept (and vice versa), retreating when protection breaks down when lots of green in front. Dropped passes.

When things go good, the coach is leaving. Why would he stay? When they go bad, it's what's the buyout? This has more than a whisp of Ellender redux of 1974 and 1975. Some people actually wonder why so few coaches have loyalty to their current employer. It's simply that the peasants always have the pitchforks at hand. The only issue is are they sheathed or unsheathed today before we go chase Frankenstein and his monster?

Thus it was was. Thus it ever will be.

It's like the backup QB being the most popular guy in town. Until he has to play!

He completed a nice pass his first couple of plays and looked reasonably good doing it. He got sacked after the first down and petered out after that.

Forget all of this speculation about Fritz leaving or getting canned if he doesn't replace his offensive coordinator. Perhaps I have a higher tolerance for losing football games that many of the rest of you, but under Fritz we're in almost all games except against top-10 teams, like Ohio State. That was not the case under CJ or Toledo. I do believe that the trend line for recruiting better talent is more-or-less positive. I wish we were beating LSU or Va Tech, like Troy and Old Dominion did, but I prefer to think of the Tulane job like the Va Tech job when Beamer started there.

We have a long way to go this year, a lot of games for us to win. I'm willing to give Fritz 5 years given what I've seen so far.

We are seeing the “lose close” stage of the Toledo plan. I agree we look better in games now than in the recent past. The OSU score was closer than I expected and as I told someone after the game, we used to lose conference games by that much.

If we had to play Central Florida we might lose a conference game by that much this year.
Ohio St called of the dogs, they could have scored 70 if they wanted

Hate to say it, but there are a couple on our schedule that could. (Well, I guess they all could if we don’t play well.)

Hey Vis - you got that 70 from where?? Keep it real - 49 is the number. Yeah bad.

I got that from watching them score like 6 TD’s on 6 possessions in the 1st half. Then they took out Haskins and presumably many other starters. If they leave Haskins in, they get something around 70.

... but they didn't, did they? Maybe they would have scored one more TD - who says they score three? Big deal. 49 is 49 after 4 quarters. You want 70 - keep dreaming - didn't happen and you cannot tell me it would have happened. You don't know.

It’s much more likely that they’d have scored 70 than just 1 more TD, but this is a really stupid thing to argue over, so I’m not going to continue.
