I hate losing probably more than you do... I am just wise enough to know

when I am not smarter than the Coach. It amazes me the sheer volume of stupid theories of why we lost or what decisions were mistakes that erupt over here after a loss like mushrooms after a week of rain.

There were reasonable posts too, but my reaction to tonight's game was to make the point that there a lot of great coaches and programs that lose now and again. We have also won a lot too.

But regardless of my opinions, I know that none of us on this Board are any more clever than our own Coach. Doesn't make him perfect, but he is still 1000% more effective than anyone posting here. I am not happy with losing to K, but not qualified to do better.

I am also not a hand-wringer. But that does not make me -- remotely -- a Pollyanna "sprinkles-passer."

But, whatever makes you feel better about being you.
