me too,and i do not understand the animosity toward p&d . that should have been directed at jake and the worst offender BUZZ SHAW. p's worst season was when he had konrad and company----that was a bad year he had the talent to go all the way. other than that, he did what he could do with no support from the university.
I didn't so much dislike P&D as I got tired of them. They were good recruiters and put together good teams, (they were certainly way better than G-Rob). But there seemed to be a ceiling on what they could accomplish - one not entirely imposed upon them by the university - and the failure to break through to true excellence in any season, combined with the blow-out losses on national TV and the mutliple losses to Rutgers and Temple when they were the dregs of the conference convinced me and most everyone else that we could do better. the first attempt failed. The second one looks promising. But maybe someday we'll be tired of Marrone, too.
I don't wish ill on P-D or confirmaiton of a decison we made long ago. But as a conference member, (for now, anyway), I'd like them to win their non-conferecne games and it's frustrating to see them come up short again. But we have a job to do of our own tonight and if we don't do it well, nobody will be talking about P-D.
