Off season hell
This is a weird season. For every team. None had spring ball to work on things or really see what they had in new players.How do you guys all feel about this abbreviated season?
Perhaps I'm a debbie downer, but even before the pandemic I expected 8 wins at best and expected this year to be a step back given all the transition at key positions.
I really haven't been all that hyped about the start of the season and have followed college football less than I have in any other year.
At this point I see this as the equivalent of a preseason for 2021. At this point I'm mostly looking forward to seeing the growth of our younger guys, but I really don't have any strong expectations for this season and feel as if this season will always have an asterisk next to it.
If the team does do well, it will really be a huge boost of confidence for me in the ability of the coaching staff.
I've seen a lot less sharpness from the SEC and ACC teams that started basically ontime. And it will be worse for the Pac with all of this added time off.
I'll be happy to see ANY Pac12 action. Given that with just 7 games there really isn't any chance a Pac12 team would make the playoffs anyway, this gets to be a play the games just to play some football kind of season. I'm just going to roll with it.
I really doubt they finish the full season anyway. Just seems like Covid is on the rise and it won't take long before either Cali, Oregon, or WA goes back to shutting down again and makes practicing off limits which then kills the season. Maybe they TRY to move all the teams to a more open state and play out of a bubble? Who knows? Just not really feeling like the whole 7 game set is going to happen.
And I'm sure it happens in other conferences as well. At least they all got several more games in before that happens.
