Whip'ing the program back into shape.

I was encouraged when the team made a nice late-season run. Which made me think of what could have been. So which game would you like to have back? For me, it the Coastal Carolina game. Coming off a tough loss against Hawai'i, it would have been nice if we had gone down to Conway and properly welcomed them to the big time. Instead, we laid a big old egg and set the tone for the next several games, all of them potentially winnable.
I’m torn, because the 3 early season losses all could be games to take back. I think either Tenn or Miss St are the one for me. Leaning more towards Miss St, because Ford was not there in Knoxville.

Hawaii and Temple. Both were pure gut punches.

Hawaii. Win that and it is a different season. That was an awful first half of the season. Looking forward to next season with guarded optimism. Need to figure out the defense and kicking game. Same old story.
Gotta go with Hawaii mainly cuz it set the tone for the season and I was there . . everything was perfect until the last 2 minutes! The Coastal Carolina loss was bad in that it was their first FBS game. When the BB team lost to Quinnipiac the other night it very much resembled the Coastal game for me!
I'm torn between Hawaii and Coastal... Hawaii started the season off with such a bad taste in our mouth and then Coastal followed it up by making us brush our teeth with horse crap.
For all the talk of there being too many bowl games, 3 6-6 teams (UTSA, Western Michigan and Buffalo) were left out of a bowl this year. It would have been nice to be bowl eligible but I'm not too certain Umass would have been chosen this year even if they had been. Every year is different, as last year there weren't enough teams to qualify for the bowls so a few 5-7 and 6-7 teams went. Either way the program did take a step forward so hopefully next year these close L's turn into W's and they leave no doubt.
