    Ew, that'd be nasty. I'm not hoping for that.

    Nothing good can happen for him with UMASS. If he wins 70-0, it was expected, and simply a matter of out-talenting them, but not a reflection of good coaching. If he struggles early, there will be boos. If we win by 20, people will further pile on about his inability to impose our will on inferior opponent.

    I'm beginning to think a Georgia loss could truly be the end for him, and we finish the final 7 games with an interim.

    He's already mentioned they're better than their 0-4 record and they have an nfl qb

    I'm surprised most of you guys don't want a loss here because that would be the end of Butch that you desire and on the way to a new coach immediately vs next year. Lose a battle to win a war, so to speak.

    His losses will come, there's no need to wish for them.

    I want a loss against UMASS. I'll go on record. It's one event that could force Currie's hand quickly.

    And I was cheering hard for a win against Florida. Better to lose now to non-rivals than to have to hope Vandy or Kentucky puts him out of his misery. I can't root for the Wildcats.

    Brutal stretch.

    The Wyoming loss still stings. I don't want a Umass loss

    The Wyoming loss doesn't sting me a bit. Barely did at the time. Losing every year to Georgia, Florida,and Alabama did and does.

    Yeah, that Wyoming loss was almost expected after the previous weak and Fulmer getting canned.

    Is it bad that I'd consider taking a loss if it meant Butch was gone first thing Monday morning? As long as Butch is still on the sideline, my tickets are going to waste every week. If he were to lose and be fired immediately, I wouldn't miss a home game the rest of the year.

    Quite the dilemma.

    that game felt like a funeral. i thought it was time for fulmer to go but that wasn't enjoyable at all.

    Don't even need a loss. The fact the line is UT -27 or so is damning enough. Let UMASS just play it close and the rumblings will be loud and powerful.

    I was sad for Fulmer, but the game itself didn't cost me any sleep.

    If Butch were to lose such a game, the funeral feeling would be more like how I felt when they dropped UBL over the Indian Ocean.

    I've never hated Butch as much as you guys. That's made me a "lover" at times but whatever. It's just never been how I was wired. My best friends going back to our freshman year with no AC in Hess hall absolutely despise him and end up yelling at me during the florida game like I had anything to do with it. That said, I hope we lose to UMass. Then its over and we can move toward winning now rather than dealing with the same tiresome shit in regards to the football program, have some good names in the mix and hopefully make a hire that will hang onto and improve the current recruiting class, before more misery makes them start bolting. The players are pretty tight and Butch has done a really good job from in and out from the depths of where we were and that really shouldn't be discounted.
    Keep the team that's close knit and get someone that can coach them up to not look like they are overthinking every step they take, keep a recruiting class, interim coach, Stoops or Kelly named in December would be a fun ride.
    I can also understand that rooting for a loss can be construed as pathetic. **** it.
