Pretty indepth. Only one real question: "will the dead cat bounce?"

Any dead cat bounce needs at least a small set of investors if they want any level of vertical lift. Who are they in this case? A large majority of fans are naturally cynical. I don't believe the momentum will come from the fans/consumers. 24-27 over four years has left many behind. The players? Are they so pissed and intense that they're going to wear the chip the right way and show the world they're not as bad as the statistics prove them to be? 7-6 never seemed to create that over three straight years, so is 3-9 going to do it? What's different? Just that they were even worse than last year? The coaches? I've heard from a couple of players that the 'leadership' thing isn't really being bought into and that the coaches in general don't really have the genuine respect they need to lead. Their words, not mine. To me, that's the crux of the risk Junior Joe pushed into our program. We are simply hopeful that some small set of 'investors', along with some 'leaning in' fans, will magically turn things around overnight. It doesn't feel possible. I hope: the players bust their asses regardless of the coaches; the coaches actually understand how to provide the leadership that's so lacking; the fans lean back in because the team has some success. That would be 'back on the rail' by any reasonable definition.
