I have been following this website silently for almost two years now and enough is enough. The second we lose a game everyone freaks out and tries to blame someone. If you are one of those trying to place blame on someone, whether it be Jimbo, Hopkins, or you are that one guy who says lets start EJ. If you happen to be one of those fans than the person you should blame is yourself. The reason you should blame yourself is clearly evident if you have a rationale mind and have played any competitive sport yourself. Everyone came into the year with a rationale mind. The common thought coming into the season was lets hope we can make it to an ACC title, however, after the hot start and the shellacking of Miami everyone's head and dreams for the season blew up to something far fetched. I noticed everyone was thinking ok we can win out make it to the ACC title game, beat whoever we play, and then make it to a major bowl game.
Let me get to the facts.... we all have to remember what we already know. That being that we are a YOUNG team. Not only are we a young team, but we are a young team with a new system on defense. A young team starting young players on a new defense that is completely foreign to the players. Even though the last two losses were the result of two bad plays we have to remember what led to us being in that position to begin with. The team is young, they will learn from these tough loses and hopefully remember that every play most count just that much more. Hopkins will get plenty more opportunities to hit them through the goal post when it matters most.
As fans we have to do our part and not forget to remember the realistic goals for this team and to not point fingers and try to blame someone for a loss. As fans we should be defined in the moment of how we respond to a win and a loss just like the players and coaches. So show some class nole nation and remember that this is a very successful season, not only on the field, but off the field, and in recruiting.
If you have read this far I might as well go out on a limb and say, we beat clemson in a close game, beat maryland in a close game, and lose to florida by 10 points, lose to vtech in a close game but by a td.
