Taking Your Temperature

Let's play doctor for a minute. Not the middle school version, where you convinced a girl it would help her with science when all you really wanted to do was touch your first boob. Rather, I want to take your temperature about the rest of the season following a win.

Many of you have gotten a little hot under the collar discussing the coaching staff's performance following two road defeats. A win at home will not cure your ills but it should improve your outlook. If it doesn't, then you really need to head to a strip club and eat the lunch buffet.

I feel great. I am optimistic about the remainder of the season and think we could go undefeated in the Big East. We showed improvement in our offensive coaching and it was slight problems in the execution, not the play calls, which kept us from putting more points on the board. The execution was pretty good, save for a number of missed blocks and passes that were released a tick too late.

All-in-all, I think it was a good performance by a team and coaching staff that is still going through the learning process. When the light bulb finally goes off we will have an offense that can run you into the ground and make you pay if you load the box.

My prediction remains unchanged since the ECU game, 9-4. We will win the Big East but get beat in the BCS game. I hope HCBS proves me wrong with a 10-2 record but I just don't see it happening while we are still learning.

Now, let me know how you feel and I promise I won't touch your boob.
