I wonder if the lack of a rushing game was the play calling was to keep the ball away from them. If so, that could explain a lot.

Doesn't seem to be much room for them in Fedora's new drop back passing attack offense. Things don't seem to be going so well under our new and dramatic offense.

Ouch. Says very bad things about the offense, when 2 Baylor vets opt out like this.

Can't blame with the offensive play calling we have now. Hope they can play next year.

They have another year of eligibility. Everyone does across the country. The question: is will they return? I'm not betting on it but I hope they do.

So they either are waiting for the draft or can use the 1 year transfer option and immediate eligibility that goes into play next year?

I can't say that I blame them. It's a throw away season and someone's going to get hurt playing behind that tinker toy offensive line.

I see them transferring to get to the League.

So did Galvin and Newman-Johnson opt out too before the game and it wasn't leaked to the media?

Won't likely be either one of them if we aren't giving them the football. Did you see our rush chart from yesterday?

Sad. I miss CAB.
I have found theres only two ways to go:
Living fast or dying slow.
I dont want to live forever.
But I will live while I'm here.

Only a matter of time before guys like Thornton/Sneed follow Suite. As well as recruits. The offense is pathetic and these 2 got out while they could. Good for them

Everyday that goes by we realize how really good football was under CAB. The talent level was years beyond anything we have now or will see in our lifetime. Thank you BOR!!!

Maybe this will get Aranda's attention. L and E didn't see this getting any better any time soon.

Apparently the trashed apartment issue has not been resolved...I thought it had been.

When it starts going down hill it goes down hill fast. Just think...we had 11 wins and went to the Sugar Bowl last year. I wonder if CMR saw this coming.

Doesn't their third partner in the Apartment Brothers episode play for CMR now?

If Hasty can sniff the NFL ..Ebner can sniff the NFL.

He created a strong program, but he also left Baylor where it is now with less recruiting power which is showing up this season.

He absolutely saw it coming. He stopped recruiting his final season because he knew he was out the door and heading to the league.

Well look at this Fedora. Qualan Jones is probably a better back than both of them anyway. Wonder if they are going to focus on pro days. Ebner might get a combine offer, doubt Lovett will

Changes in some of their decisions already

I worry about the mood in the locker room when things like this happen. Anybody else worried?

Sure, but at this point it is what it is. Hopefully the team rallies and beats TCU. A win would go a long way in turning things around both mentally and physically.

Some comfort knowing that for whatever it's worth, we have the same number of losses as sooner and orange cow this year.

Every word out of his mouth the final year was a lie...I'm wondering how Aranda might take this, while I don't blame them, an argument can be made that they are abandoning their team when they need them the most. Fedora will prove to be a disaster...have said this numerous times on various threads since he was hired. He is just not the right guy, period. Only defense of him for the pathetic offensive output has been the horrible OL he has to work with...
