Fac t: CRN and NC have had to modify strategy to accomodate KC's ability
Fact: KC is not getting the job done
Fact: College football is big business, which sometimes requires very tough decisions.
A lot of you out there had no problem second guessing Dorrell (rightfully) even though you did not have access to HIS data points. Yet, you sycophantically protect poor decisions by CRN. The object is to win. CRN's refusal to play RB is mystifying to me. They literally had nothing (more) to lose. In playing the Stanford game, UCLA had the opportunity to be sitting atop the PAC10 and earning a modicum of respect. One would think that they would have been more aggressive in pursuing that goal. Instead, they dumbed it down, played safe, and look where it got them. It was apparent to me very early on that this was not going to go our way. CRN knew that as well. Why not roll the dice on RB? With so much at stake, why just roll over and take the loss? Others have pointed to a possibility of attempting to reinstate RB's redshirt. I have no knowledge of the requirements that may permit that, however, it would seem the only accepetable reason for keeping KC at the helm.
