For the second straight week we have out-gained our opponent and yet have managed to find ways to "snatch defeat from the jaws of victory." Last week special teams turnovers helped us to a one point loss, and this week 4 turnovers and a no-show defensively led to a 40-30 stink-fest. If we busted alignments and assignments once, we did it 5 to 10 times. Several led to big plays and/or touchdowns. That's a sign of lack of discipline mentally. At least that can be corrected. The other problem isn't so easy.

We were flat and showed a lack of heart in general.

400 yards of offense and we still manage to lose the game. No wrapping up, arm tackles everywhere, standing and watching on both sides of the ball, a lack of hustle... The list goes on.

I'm thinking we night need a new decal for our helmets if we are going to stand a chance this Friday:

In fact, starting Monday, we're going to be having a major team-wide heart transplant-o-thon...

... or I know some athletes that might need to start thinking about having a nice, long J.V. season for the rest of the year.
