If you erase this football season Pruitt turned 2019 around and things were positive at the end. Although everyone is dealing with COVID this year it is different for everybody due to different states having different rules and just plain luck (how many cases and contacts there are). No spring practice, limited summer, big numbers out in fall you probably hope you can roll any kind of team out there. I don’t think we should evaluate him based on this year.
EVERYONE is dealing with this. And bad teams are becoming better than us while we sit here and twiddle our thumbs and do absolutely nothing.
I'm tired of the excuses. Stop it. Please. For this team and this university. Enough is enough.
You hear sports analysts/commentators all the time talk about how teams overcome diversity, the odds, and playing through stressful situations. This season should matter most of all. It shows who has it and who doesn't. Who can adjust on the fly and get your team prepared at a last minutes notice.
2020 should be a test for ALL coaches. So we dang well should be evaluating them. Especially since we and everyone else are PAYING them MILLIONS. Heck we even asked other staff to take pay cuts for this clown!
No more participation trophies. No more excuses. If coach can't take the heat then get the $#&$# out the kitchen!!!
