Well, given what had happened in 1987 and 1988, the skepticism was understandable just as putting Tech this year in the, (what was it?) Ninth Tier by some preseason prognosticator was pretty much expected. Until, this team wins the games it should win a jaundiced eye is to be expected. If the team feels "disrespected" well, the remedy is a simple one...win ball games.In 1989, Ken Swilling predicted we would go undefeated in 1990. Maybe you heard of him.
Most folks didn't believe him.
this is unrealistic ..
this is very realistic
Start by actually getting better in a measurable way. Don’t be among the worst teams in the county in simple things like penalties, extra points, chip shot field goals. Once you master that you will have a winning record.
Then worry about finding a way to beat really good teams (of which we have absolutely zero change right now).
Then talk about winning championships.
When you (the team) start talking about stuff like this well before you’re ready you look lazy.
