    This ranking won’t last long with the way we are playing today.

  2. John S says:

    Fun while it lasted. Our offense looks as bad as it did in football. It’s like we don’t even call a play.

  3. JW says:

    Unreal. I understand a bit of a letdown may be natural and that there was a short turnaround time but there’s not excuse to lose at home to Jacksonville. That’s pathetic.

  4. G8TRKYLE says:

    Not long at all…well actually we will be #20 for the next week until the new poll comes out, but how disappointing. This year’s squad does not play with any sort of passion. Who is the leader of this team…Bueller….Bueller?
