Basically, I took away from it:
We're close. Stop expecting so much. Young players and attrition cost us two games.
What I did not take away from it:
We are going to make some changes on the staff or with our philosophy to get better.
This is the crucial difference I see between Les, and the gold standard in CFB. At the end of the last two years, he's had to fend off critics by talking shite about making changes in the offense and punishing teams who stack the box, etc.
This is two years straight where we simply heard words that made us sound hopeful, and saw results that would make any objective person question those words as outright lies told merely to achieve some breathing room with a fanbase that knows exactly how well he recruits, and how well we develop players, and how shiteous one aspect of this team has been.
Great players in, world class development done, coaching staff upgrades, skyrocketing staff salaries, but total offense rank of 57th (2008), 112th (2009), 87th (2010), 86th (2011), & 86th (2012).
Meanwhile Saban has hoisted 3 National Championship Trophies into the air as well as had 12, 14, 10, 12, & 13 victories. We're watching our head coach make up excuses about why he can't produce better results on offense. They're giving their Gumptarded Fans photo ops with the Warerford Crystal Trophy in Wal-Marks.
This article does nothing for me. But anyone whose objective thinking outherwise is deluding themselves.
