Weis tanked in November, but the Admin was caught by surprise and was in no way prepared to change coaches. Therefore, we entered 2009 with a minority of spracks telling us that our talent would gel and Charlie would turn it around.
I'm sure someone will post that Kelly is better than Weis and we really, really, really will turn it around in 2015. The problem with that strategy of hope is that Kelly has lost his players, so "better than Weis" only means "different than Weis".
I think we're going to see a rerun of 2009 next year. My expectations will be low, both for the team and for the Admin's ability to prepare for the inevitable.
