I have chosen to start this thread because well my team is 1-5, and has not won a conference game, and the fucking schedule doesn't get easier. Up next for me is #22 Washington, 3-1 (2-1). I am sending an invitation to the UCLA Bruins Coach and Illinois' Coach as well to join this club. It is quite obvious as to why Illinois should be apart of this club because cheez's team is also 3-4, and currently has only 1 conference win. For UCLA it is not as obvious, UCLA is 5-3 and is 5-1 conference. However, they can't rise in the polls. For the past four or five weeks they have stayed at #24 in the polls. I wonder how that makes Coach recchem feel. As for me, how did I wind up here? My defense just flat out sucks. I have scored 41, 38, 17, 17, 42 points and have lost all those games. Four of those losses are by a combined 15 points with the opposing team scoring in the last minute on all four occasions. Against USC my QB Tyler Johnson sucked and the defense couldn't tackle their RB. I have been told if I lose to UW this week OSU might have a new coach for the ASU game. I do not know what this means for me, will I be fired, and will some new PAC-10 school hire me as their coach. @Cheez please tell us how are things in Champaign, will the team improve in the second half of the season? Will the Illini play in a bowl game? And are the alumni upset, and do they want a new coach if the team does not make it to a bowl game? @recchem2000 How does it feel to receive this invitation? Why can't the Bruins rise in the polls, it appears you have righted the ship. Have the pollsters decided that the Bruins may be a good team, but not an elite program that can challenge the nation's best teams?
