its not like we dont have talent. we do. we just dont use it properly.
time for a change.
Well put, ODC. I'm pretty firmly in the Torts Should Go Camp as well by now. Tawnos' post with the cumulative .500 record since mid last year is particularly damning.
Plus, to me, Torts seems one of the most inflexible coaches, horrible at in-game adjustments, and treats nearly all players with the same approach. A good coach adapts his philosophy and tactics to the talent he has. Torts, not so much.
