So here we are, sitting around, doing calculus, and suddenly we have a bomb dropped on our head. Al Groh was fired, the world reacted, and now we stood up and got back on our feet. We here at FTRS are keeping an eye out to see if we fall back down drunk or barrel head-on into the back half of the season at 6-0.
First, something I can't confirm officially (hooray, heresay!), but would like to report none the less. My roomate is friends with a lot of the football players on facebook, and he says that many of them are pretty pissed about the whole Al Groh situation. This is interesting to me because how the players react is the biggest parameter in our comeback design, and apparently it doesn't look good.
According to Paul Johnson, though, we're right back on track (this is a re-post of an interview I posted to in the comments of Tuesday's edition of the Tidbits. listen to the one from Oct. 9th).
