Walden really betraying his lack of experience going for it on fourth there?

Seems like a really, really bad decision in hindsight.

Bring back Reed V. "Pie" TurkPalmer Eustachy.

Re: LA Tech @ USM Football 2020 Game Thread

Last nights loss is equally as bad as USA when you consider how many starters they were missing, their lack of practices, poor conditioning due to COVID, etc...USA would have beat La Tech last night by 10.

The level of talent right now, from players to staff, is probably on par with Bowers exit. You need a complete rebuild. We may get 4 wins so the W/L column doesn’t matter. Even if Walden stays 70% of this staff will be gone in 2021. This JUCO heavy roster will be gone. You are looking at a Monken YEAR 2 level situation in 2021 at best.

Factor in all of that stuff, add the financial impact of COVID in 2020, so what do you do? You hire Scotty Walden. You give him $600K and give him more money for hiring an experienced staff. You let him recruit his players and go after the state of Texas.

You absolutely cannot look at wins and losses in 2020. Changing the 2 point conversion to an extra point doesn’t change how terrible this defense is. A tie game or OT doesn’t move a needle in the evaluation of Coach Walden. The bigger story is how kids continue to respond to him and how the in game adjustments continue to improve week to week.

"There was a great deal of character on that field today. They are for real, no doubt about it. This was no fluke." - Coach Paul "Bear" Bryant
