I figured there would be a “bleeding heart” responder. We’ve had 3 years to recruit FBS players. We can’t make the FCS excuses when poor coaching and playing on the field, against inferior teams (31 point under dogs), becomes a weekly issue! This is FBS Football. I’ve played at this level on a successful team and the coaches message was never soft. Hey but I’m a little old school. Hey but have it you way coach!LibertyMan wrote: ↑October 24th, 2021, 2:41 pm These celebrations feel like the HCTG days when team struggle to get to 500 every season. “ULM gave up 159 point to 3 teams, barely beat JS and Troy and we loose to them. UNT’s only victory was against Northwestern State and there’s celebration like we just pulled out a victory over Ole Miss. There’s nothing to celebrate until we beat either Army, Ole Miss, or Ragin Cajuns. Hopefully all of them. But if we don’t beat either, the season is a failure at 7-5.” That’s my Coach speech in the locker room!If that's your "Coach Speech, I doubt anyone would be motivated to play for you at all. All your posts seem to be about pointing out mistakes, shortcomings or failures. You seem to relish the opportunity to degrade coaches or players that don't measure up to your 20/20 hindsight. There is someone like you at nearly every little league, junior high or high school game that I have been to and they don't seem to realize that everyone around them views them as a jerk. This team is struggling to balance last year's success with now being a team that is getting everyone's best shot. We have seen some great plays to go along with some inconsistancy. This team has yet to play their best game, but I think it's coming. Glad it doesn't depend on your "coach speech".

I'm sure that you would probably have a hard time doing that. I'm also sure that Liberty is one of only three teams to be bowl eligible in their first three years after transitioning to FBS. And I'm pretty sure that he has led Ole Miss to two wins over Alabama and the school's first ever birth in the Sugar Bowl. And I'm pretty sure that he led Liberty to a few of the biggest wins in school history last year over Virginia Tech, Syracuse and a previously undefeated and ranked Coastal team for his second consecutive Bowl win. So I'm pretty sure that he has his "Coach Speech" down by now. You don't seem to be receptive to any rational football related explanations of how a team could lose a game so I question your true knowledge of the nuances, schemes, injuries or match ups. The fact that 12 starters were out during the ULM game also seems to evade your evaluation. I have been involved in college coaching in another sport and even have a National Championship ring to show for it. I've seen parents like you before. You obviously have a dislike for the HCHF. Maybe your kid didn't get a scholly, or you can't let go of the fact that he made some mistakes in life, I really don't know. But I'll tell you one thing, Liberty University Football would not have had the success that we have had the last three years without him and I think that 98% of true Liberty fans believe that and are looking forward with optimism. You should try it.
