Thread: A look back at fan angst from the Monken years...

  1. #1

    Default A look back at fan angst from the Monken years...

    A look back at some GSUFans frustration back when Jeff Monken was head coach. Just a disclaimer, I'm not trying to call anyone out here, but just trying to point out there's a lot of familiar theme in these threads like saying staff changes need to be made, injuries are just an "excuse", vanilla play-calling, and more.

    Here's a few threads, though these aren't the only ones that could be used as examples.

    Mental Toughness Do we have it

    Killer Instinct the knockout blow

    So, people were mad at Monken when we lost to App and Furman in a meaningless season? I’m SHOCKED!

    Our fans think every coach is trash (even the good ones)

    Somehow people still think a coach who won the sunbelt his first year, then took UGA to overtime and won a bowl game the next year and ended with a 9 win season is trash.

    Come on, there's a difference between saying "it just wasn't our game/year, FIDO" and basically questioning the process and coaching staff altogether.

    Weren't you the one that said at some point that season that it was starting to feel like 2006 and not 2003?

    I don’t remember that, but I it’s possible. 2013 was an incredibly frustrating season, and Monken is a hardheaded SOB. I did wonder sometimes if that ran away with him like it did with the coach we had in 2006.

    There’s NO WAY I was ready to throw Monken away, though. I had a FIDO mentality 99% of the time.

    I admit that I WAS ready to fire Fritz for about 72 hours starting on 12/5/15.
