Franchise. Friend in need who liberates us from not 10-win, but 9-win seasons. 9-win season average in 15-game seasons for the top teams. Top teams we’ve not been. Not asked to do much for a program that really just hasn’t had quarterbacks, but Running Backs, and at one point a Defense. Aspiring Elite Program who toils in The Mighty SEC where legends appear overnight and endure. All he has to do is frankly very little, to better those before. A manageable task, one would think. Sure the clamoring has been relentless, but this man is Academic All-America written all over his Blue Blood lineage. Level-headed and unassuming, quietly he has risen in the ranks this day – not doing too much. Average # 9 recruiting class surrounds him against # 30 average recruiting class of North Carolina itself about as much an UGA as UGA Alabama. Sure the faithful would love to be in North Carolina, UGA and at UGA, Alabama. Can he just hit a couple of men down the field ? Can he be the threat to finally make Defenses have to be honest against our University of Ground Attack ? Can he not fumble, not throw interceptions, and not take the sacks his 6′ 6″ 235 lbs. frame can surely handle ? He need not tuck and run. He can throw it away. After all, This Great Bulldog Nation has patiently waited and bore the brunt of talented but coachless decades. Our boy in charge now. Our student of the game. Our smart guy at the helm, teaming with his smart guy as his field general. Talented, yes, but mostly smart. One already Academic All America and one aspiring to. I think we deserve this. I know we are worthy. We’ve long suffered the precipice, and frankly know this isn’t it. We just want to be one considered Elite again. Yes we’ve been Elite. Elite is more than a year – far more than that flash in a pan. More than what we’ve been through for 8 years. And sure, many are youngsters. Untested players, untested coach, and unused to real-winning fans. But for just one moment – just one – we’d like to be all pulling in the same direction for our 2 men on the HOT SEAT.
Best of luck guys ! We’re all pulling for y’all. 11-3 or even 12-2 would be a huge step forward and set the stage for more like 175 wins the next 15 years, not 145. …
