Hard to disagree with CCJ but I don't see where he says anything about writing off Locksley as a head coach. To hand the ball off four times to a talented but smallish back near the goal line wasn't very smart. I just think he lost confidence as did OC Scottie Montgomery, in Josh Jackson.
Another way to look it is the offensive line stunk. They lost right guard Davis and he's out 4-6 weeks. But they got mauled on both lines of scrimmage. Get back against Penn State and compete hard and the fans will have your respect.
As I've said in the past, I went to school with Mike back at Towson so I'm going to pull for him even more. But as a head football coach, if your team is not prepared mentally (they showed zero emotion in the first half) and you and the staff are not making adjustments, it's on you.
There was this quote: "Mike Locksley is not a good head coach."
I didn't read every post in this thread. I've come back from a month or so hiatus. But I'm going to take that comment with a grain of salt. Sure, if you base it on that game and New Mexico...but Syracuse? Let's give him a bit of time and a chance to recruit.
