It's Now or Never Time

With the game this Saturday vs. Utah, we begin a stretch of 4 winnable (make that must win) games.  I have long been an advocate of Coach Tedford and what he has accomplished since he RESCUED our football program.  I am not a card carrying member of the "how come we’re not BCS contenders club."  I am far more pragmatic as I was an undergrad in the 70's (Cal Band 72-75) and was a season ticket holder from 1976 until this year when the ticket prices and schedule were not attractive enough to keep me wanting more,.  Give me a winning season, an opportunity to play in a bowl and I am a pretty happy camper. 

Coach T deserves a lot of credit, as well, for his patience and perseverance with sub-standard facilities which are finally (praise Oski) a soon to be thing of the past.   All that being said, if he cannot LEAD the current team to a minimum 6-6 record, then I say (with great sadness) it is time to turn the page and give someone else a chance.  Our recruiting has been great but we are not converting that talent into wins.  Much as was the case with Coach Braun in basketball, I do not see players getting better during their playing time under Coach T and that is what it takes to be a good solid program.

So 6-6 and even 7-5 are there for the taking – no more excuses, no more explanations.  In the words of the American philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson, “What you do speaks so loudly, I cannot hear a word you say.”
