I've really enjoyed these this season, good work!

IMO...the problem is that this team does not have the heart of a champion. I include all the staff w/ this as well.
The fact that we were never ready to play on the road this year is completely unacceptable and inexcusable.
Got to get this fixed or we will never see the promise land...never.

Appreciated the candid responses to the frustrating loss and it's been nice to have this show to offer some "perspective" after emotions have cooled off.

My main questions coming from the show/game are does Jimbo have the humility to admit to mistakes and the need make changes (e.g. not riding the hot hand of Achane, changing up coaches, ect.)? History has suggested that Jimbo is stubborn, but even Saban, who I think many would also consider stubborn, has made significant changes to his game. If so, what would Jimbo need to do?

I Like the host. He's so disgusted he can't talk. I feel his pain.
You guys just reiterate the need for an OC. King would not have anything to do with Achane over Spiller or the other way around. Fisher doing that like he's reading a spreadsheet instead of feeling the ebb and flow of game. Or is too confident that going conservative is the right thing to do. He needs a dedicated playcaller in a scheme better suited for today's high school kids and oversee the entire game from a distance. Maybe he would go over to Elko and tell him to rush 4 or whatever. He can't manage entire game when he's absorbed in the offensive details. And it looks like he's not seeing what is obvious to everyone. In this case Achane needed in 4th qtr, including their last 3 and out drive. At the very least, 3rd down as a receiver out of backfield.

The issue with all these dropped passes last few years is the worst Ive ever seen an A&M team go thru. The backups are not getting enough playing time. Have to be able to go 2 deep. I think Smith is hurt. So put in the freshman from Miami. Have to have fresh players. The starters get beat up and tired. Fisher puts the same players on the field week in week out unless they are injured. The next guy not ready in this scheme, because they don't play. Sometimes for years. 4 and 5 star kids.

Frustrating because the passing game has been the issue for the last 4 years. Agree Fisher doing great as HC and recruiting.
