  1. I like Coach Beamer, but it's like anything else; If people don't see the value in something, they won't spend their money on it. If he improves the quality of the product on the field (which I think he will, and is, it just takes time), people will show up.
  2. That sounds like a reasonable assessment, to me. I did get caught up in my own sunshine pumping optimism, and was a bit disappointed after the KY game, but having thought through it more, I’m ok with where we are headed. But I am still very pissed that we lost to KY again.
  3. Yes. I’m hauling my camper all the way out and back. I may regret it, but right now I’m looking forward to it.
  4. Jim, those are amazing. My wife and I are planning to head to South Dakota in about two weeks. I'm hoping to get some hiking in while in the Badlands.
  5. Jim's pictures aren't there, and I noticed that my videos aren't there, either. I posted from my phone, and they show up there, but not on my desktop.

  7. My head has been telling me we need to be patient, and that I knew this wouldn't be a magic turnaround. My heart got excited and wanted more. The most frustrating part of Saturday night for me, was that we should have won that game, but we didn't. I am so sick of losing to KY, probably more than any other team except Clemson. We are better than last year. Our defense is light years better than last year, and I do have confidence in Coach Beamer, that he recognizes the problem, and will get it fixed, but it will take some time. He hired the right guy to run the defense, and he hired the right guy to run special teams, so either he has hired the right guys to run the offense, and OL, or he will fix it. I do believe we will get better throughout the year, and I still believe we will beat someone we aren't supposed to. If we can get the offense to play consistently like they did in the first possession of the 2nd half, we'd really have something.
  8. I had planned for my wife and I to hike our favorite trail today. I have never seen another person on the first three miles of the trail in all the times I’ve hiked it. It starts on private property, so you have to get permission and the gate code to get into the camp. We arrived at the trailhead to find about thirty people going on a group hike. That just doesn’t work for me. My hikes are my time to get away from phones, other people (not counting the wife), and noise. I want to go out and enjoy nature, peace and quiet and get some exercise. So, we left and went to another trail that goes to Lake Wattacoo. I had forgotten that Oil Camp Creek Trail crosses that trail, so we took it. From that point on, we didn’t come across another soul. It was great! This is the time of year I enjoy it the most, once it cools down and you can really savor being outside. Here are some pictures and videos of some of the beautiful stuff we saw, plus my dog, who absolutely lives for hiking. The sheer joy on her face as she runs up the trails, exploring and splashing through the water is worth it, even if I didn’t enjoy it. IMG_1826.MOV IMG_1825.MOV IMG_1777.MOV IMG_1815.MOV

  11. I will agree that some did look intentional. Perhaps you are right, I have no idea, but it will be interesting to see it play out.
  12. Yep! No reason to be down. We got whipped, but we didn’t quit. Stupid mistakes cost us, but they were bigger, faster, and more talented. It won’t be that way for long.
  13. Do you think this is just a magic wand that gets waved, and POOF, things are all better? It takes time. These guys have been doing things wrong during the whole last staff, and in three games they’re supposed to completely turn it around? Give them a break. They could have been perfect last night, and we were still outclassed. The biggest takeaway on this was that the team didn’t quit! That didn’t happen last year. If Chump was still the coach, they would have checked out after the first quarter.

  17. On paper and in my head, all the evidence says we will get crushed. However, as a Georgia friend of mine said, Carolina can suck, but they will play Georgia like champions. That is my hope, that somehow the guys hang in there, and play amazingly well, or Georgia will have an off game, or whatever it takes to be hanging in there at the end. For some reason the team seems to play better in Athens than Columbia sometimes. Here’s hoping for a happy and surprising outcome on Saturday night. IF we did pull off the upset, it does my heart good to think of how the Clemorrhoid’s heads will explode.

  19. I had noticed that as well, but didn't want to say anything. It's a welcome change.
  20. We all knew going in to the season that we wouldn't go from 2-8 to champs. So far, we have won two games we were supposed to win, and have matched last year's win total. This manner in which we won was a reason for hope to me. We didn't give up, which is major progress. Unless a miracle happens, we are going to lose several games this year, but the manner in which we lose will tell us a lot. The fundamentals, like tackling, have improved, and I'm sure will keep improving. If we can pull out a win or two we aren't supposed to get, and the staff can continue to recruit well, I see happy days in our future.
