RWC, you are SO right!! My only argument with your OPs is: it was not "just one game or play" that is responsible for our 'actual' (not "apparent" downward direction of this program...there were many factors contributing, but the MOST damaging was piss poor execution by a multiple of players in critical games (our TOs by our QBs top the list, but so did poor execution AND scheme on D (the middle of our D was borderline inept til the last few games--only occasionally did our secondary bail us out with "sudden change" TOs & injuries & youth on D added significantly to our problems...
CTJ & others who THINK they can blame 100% of our issues on Mack are simply looking for a simply way to describe a multi-facit problem with this team & I would seriously doubt they ever played a down of D-1 college football...Oh well, so much for the simpleton mentality...
Do I think Mack is getting close to "worn-out" since that fateful night against Bama? Absolutely. Does he want to get the program back to a BCS-level? Certainly. Do I think he is capable with the players & coaches he has surrounding him? Yes, as long as he let's them have the reigns (save maybe Daiz, who he needed to & did reign in finally the last phase of our season)...
Frankly, I was a bit shocked that Mack is publically supporting Manny's return, but that still could change post Alamo Bowl, I would guess...I WILL acknowledge that starting the 2nd half of the KS game I DID notice improved play with our D EVEN considering two very inexperienced LBs & limited duty by Oak down the stretch
