Well said.It’s simple.
People are celebrating progress.
They’re not celebrating a team that is frustrating. They’re not celebrating a team that still lacks quality athletes at several positions. They’re not celebrating freshman mistakes. They’re not celebrating players who still have a lot to learn after getting zero coaching by the previous guy. They’re not celebrating blown games or WTF losses.
They’re celebrating progress. They’re celebrating seeing a coach who clearly knows how to coach. They’re celebrating visible improvement in the quality of play. They’re celebrating watching young kids work hard and see the fruits of their labor pay off, and we are so happy for them.
There celebrating the first step in what will be a long process by a first time head coach in his first full year as a coach.
The last four years were the worst I have ever experienced as a Tech fan. What we saw yesterday is how you climb out of that. Criticizing this team for expecting more out of this season not only shows a lack of football knowledge, it speaks of a really melancholy view of what college sports is all about.
