If you are referring to the e-mail we received earlier this week, I agree 100%.  Replied in a respectful fashion but cited our non-show at Army and falling behind by 17 v CCSU.  Almost, but didn't, take exception to him lauding the team effort coming back from a 17 point deficit.  The "team" are the ones who got us into the deficit in the first place with some help from the coaches.  Hope I am wrong but Saturday could be very ugly.

Yes and this from post game (Hartford Courant):

"You had two teams who left it all out on the field today," said the 33-year-old, baby-faced Breiner, who went 8-3 in his first season after replacing Joe Moorhead. "We got the pick six at the end, and that was ultimately the difference but a testament to how special the game of football is. I'm incredibly proud of our young men and battling through some adversity, battling from being down and coming back. I'm really impressed by them and proud of them."

Now, I understand the power of positive thinking, but I like the idea (the necessity) of the coach setting the tone for the program. I think that it's great that he lauds the players for tenacity, but it would be entirely appropriate for him to say that the slow starts (and other negatives) in the first two games of the season are unacceptable.

Poor ball security, bad special teams play, blown assignments in the secondary. These need to be called out. Play like that in the league and they will be toast.
