Bingo on the above

I think some of the negative comments on this board today (I've only read page 1) reflect a frustration that our D issues (which have been tweaked for the positive as the season has progressed) are so and very obviously correctible. Bronco and Howell's insistence on playing Grant and, especially, Cross have cost us games---identifying their poor play does not require hours of film work. Its glaring for all to see (esp opponents OCs, as somebody suggested). It has to have a negative impact on morale---especially on their backups who from what I can tell and much, much better players. I get the coaches's concept of "will before skill" and stick with the program and we will stick with you. However, as we are heading into the true meat of our schedule, its time for a change---if those changes don't happen, its a mystery to me. You know its bad, when, last night, I encouraged my tailgating crew to "get into the stadium so we don't miss GT's first score!"---we get to our seats, at 13:40 into the quarter and it was already GT 7 and UVA 0
I can't opine on the on sides, but losing an onside kick should be an absolute rarity. Question: does our questionable Specialty Team's play have something to do with the amount of A players we have on them? In other words, does their position play detract from their practice on "Teams"?
