For me it's not simply about the product being entertaining. I have an expectation about how the team should look against certain competition. Looking overmatched against USC or WVU would be one thing. Letting a FCS team have life right to the very end is disappointing. We're 2-0 and I'm glad, but being glad is not the same as satisfied. At 2-0 the look test clearly shows that this team is missing a lot. Did Carter make the O-line look better than they really were? What's gonna happen when our D-line goes up against a good O-line? Our secondary hasn't been covering elite recievers and is still getting burned too often. That scares me. I expected the defense to struggle some and maybe improve throughout the season, but I hoped the offense would make up for it. So far it looks no better and maybe even worse. I didn't necessarily expect a top 25 team this year, but I did expect a team that would manhandle a FCS team. Here's hoping my untrained eyes are missing correctable mistakes that the coaching staff can fix as the season progresses.
