I predict this time next week 70% of us will have given up hope for the rest of the season



If they lose next week they'll be a lot more than 70% of the fanbase giving up

re: 2019 Prediction
So more than 70% of us absolutely expect our team to go on the road in week one and beat a team that’s on the edge of the Top 25 and anything less than that is unacceptable? Interesting. And I disagree. I haven’t been sitting and waiting on something for 8 or 9 months with optimism to completely give up on the whole thing after just a fraction of it is complete. If over 70% of our fanbase were to “give up” after a Memphis loss then that’s on them. All that said, I think we beat Memphis and win 6 total. Time will tell.

I think most of the fanbase was done when they gave him the permanent job because they saw seasons like this in their future. If we lose at Memphis in week 1 and blow one of the winnable games on our schedule, I think that is just proof that their suspicions about Matt Luke as a coach were correct. Luke had to prove himself as a coach and he hasn't. You act as if this is throwing in the towel after game 1. This is throwing in the towel after game 25.

re: 2019 Prediction
I completely understand the frustration over the past couple years, and i've said from day one that this year was Luke's year to prove what he can do. For me, that doesn't mean he has to win 8 or 9 games. Sorry to all of you with high, high expectations a year after NCAA sanctions. I'm told OM has sold all of its tickets for Memphis and it would appear many are still onboard. I know I will be there. And yes, to say the hell with it before it even starts or after potentially an opening loss is pretty much the exact definition of "throwing in the towel after Game 1."

I have to totally agree here. I was not a Luke supporter but landmass, Henry etc have really not been fair at all! I was probably in this argument before most of you were born. Bob Tyler was Vaughts pick when people like you wanted bruiser at the time! I see more of the old boy network in you than I do the reality. I am old enough to remember when Ole Miss was feared and nobody wanted us on their schedule. Freeze was good but he was no Johnny Vaught!, I met Johnny Vaught at a game with my daddy in the sixties. My daddy was a huge LSU fan and his favorite coach was Vaught! My daddy could seperate ability from rivals which is why he brought me to meet Vaught! He also did that with bear Bryant in the 60's. My daddy said Vaught was the best coach he ever watched! Is Matt Luke in that arena? No one knows! Well AOC knows and landmass and Henry know!
Again I did not support the Luke decision but I will give hm a chance! This is his first year withhis staff. Yes freeze dicked this up and I was opposed to him as I had a favorite choice andit wasn't freeze. He did good but he fell into a pile of successful recruits I never thought he was the answer, I met Johnny Vaught and he is no Johnny Vaught! I sayweekly have had smite ally crap coaches and Matt Luke isn't there yet, I love his hires now let's see the product.
My question is who among us has created a unicorn start up? Actually I have and I need help and if you understand what that means contact me.

re: 2019 Prediction
So Freeze was no Vaught but we don't know if Luke is or not and we are going into his 3rd year as head coach? That makes no sense

And as far as I'm concerned, Luke doesn't and never deserved a fair shot. He's woefully underqualified and represents everything that's wrong with our university since Vaught retired. He represents our boosters and university officials satisfaction with mediocrity

re: 2019 Prediction
Henry, at the end of the day, we are all in the same boat. If I’m wrong and you’re right, I’ll try to be the first to admit it. But right now, I honestly don’t think we know what lies ahead. I hope it’s good and we can continue to build on it.
