It’s over. At least for the time being. The Red Wolves will rise again – too much has been invested for the program to fail. But this season is crap. It’s the Coy and Vance year of Dukes of Hazzard. It’s a piece of candy corn stuck to the bottom of your plastic pumpkin.
Beating the Bears was unfinished business. Beating the Panthers, well, that’s true atonement.
It’s a fan’s right to gripe. With our devotion comes expectations. We want results in exchange for our dollars. But mostly, we want a program to be proud of. And if you ask us to invest in your program both financially and emotionally, you must also embrace the darker shades of enthusiasm that follows a loss.
