Delusional




http://blogs.indystar.com/purdue/2011/10/10/looking-back-at-minnesota-victory/

By now we've all learned about how Coach Hope is delusional. But I can't believe they are even delusional when it comes down to statistics! Instead of the official combined 18-for-27 for our QBs, according to our coaching staff, they are 22-for-25! Magically our completion percentage goes up from 67% to 88%!!!! Wow, it's like magic. I wish my grade can jump like this.

Turns out, they are ignoring throw-aways (to avoid sacks) and drops. While I can understand some of those aren't really the fault of the QB, but seriously, this is just delusional! It's like, to calculate FG% in basketball we should throw away any last second heave or any basket where it just rims out after dropping half-way in. Or that I should request my professor, "Hey, I deserve an A because other than the ones I got wrong, I answered everything correctly on my test."

If you are going to ignore the drops, then you should also ignore the spectacular catches that the WRs made that should not have been made. Moreover, you should also ignore the extra yards gained b/c the defense blew a coverage.

But then it's typical Hope. He's the "Other than the fact that we can't score nor prevent others from scoring, we are a pretty damn good football team" kind of guy. He can be totally blind to our weakness and just emphasize on "The most important thing is we don't get any serious injury." I guess that's why for 3 yrs he still refuses to cover the middle on passing 3-rd down situation.

And praising Mavre for "mangaging the game well" and "best at staying within the system"?!? Oh pls, except for 6 passes (1 even for a TD), all Mavre does is hand off to the RB, all day.
