    100% correct. Sonny Dykes was fired because he did not produce good teams. I'm glad we came to agreement on this.

  1. I like reading any kind of in-depth analysis, especially after a loss. Too many people just make knee-jerk proclamations without really analyzing what's happened. Keep it up!

    Hey, a question. Do you think I should continue my post game thoughts posts. They only get a few responses, but a few seem rather positive.
