We lived, ate and breathed cardinal and gold for 4-6 years depending, some of us longer. Some of us have even worked for the University. Some of us have even worked for the football program. Some on here are even fellow TFAC members. Walking away would never be an option for guys like us. But after this year, I no longer condemn Marcus Allen for refusing to come to our events when the program is shitty and fails to represent our heritage. I used to hate his unwillingness to attend our events when we were struggling and pushing the ball uphill to get back on track. Now I feel the same damn way, watching Hellton squander all our resources with his ill informed and unintelligent decisions and methods. Criticism is nothing new to people like me - those of us who understood the program and the game and knew Hellton was a pretender. But not agreeing with posters doesn't change the reality that, collectively we squandered what we had and acted irresponsibly. We had very high standards and always strove for excellence in everything we did [on or off the field], and to see us lower our standards is anathema to our existence. As for those high standards, I really hope they come back some day. Hockey10, Alfa1, gubo&palanka and 4 others like this.
