What a joke.
I really don’t want to beat a dead horse and just repeat everything else that has been said over the past couple of days, but I really am lost for words otherwise.
The relentless tenacity of Sean Lee at least gave us a glimmer of hope that our defense wasn’t completely worthless, but after his injury our true colors quickly began to show. That in addition to a hobbled Demarcus Ware and things are starting to look bad real fast.
I’m actually starting to wonder if Monte Kiffin is even part of this coaching staff. Is anybody else noticing that in every single game when the screen switches to a shot of Monte Kiffin in the booth he’s always in the same position and never says a word? Is that a mannequin or something? “They’re the same face! Doesn’t anyone notice this? I feel like I’m taking crazy pills!” Sorry for the Mugatu rant but seriously, does the guy show any emotion at all about his completely worthless product.
I’m never a huge advocate of major changes midseason, but I’m starting to think Kiffin has to go. I understand he’s riding on a few bad wheels here but even when they were at full strength they were nothing to write home about.
As a big Texas Longhorn fan I can tell you that sometimes change is the best thing for a team. Look no further than a humiliating Texas loss to BYU in which the Texas defense and BYU rush attack set school records for most rushing yards allowed and most rushing yards in a single game respectively. A day later defensive coordinator Manny Diaz was gone, Greg Robinson stepped in, and now the Texas D is not only relevant but a big part of the reason the Longhorns are in the hunt for a Big 12 championship.
I know this is apples and oranges but somebody has to stop the bleeding. With an underperforming offense already on the field it is absolutely vital that somebody squeeze everything they can out of this patchwork defense, and Monte Kiffin just a’int getting it done.
