    Re: 2018-what would you consider a success?

    Given our returning talent level, the bar is 8-3 and a playoff berth. We have a new coaching staff, so it'll be interesting to see how the new coaches and players adapt to one another. We do return our OL and DL coaches to help ease the transition, plus our OC from 2013 is back after a stint at Eastern Illinois. We could be really good or scuffle with new schemes and the meshing of personalities. We'll get a good idea starting today as spring practice gets underway.

    Going to be tough for USD this year to get to 7-4. K State and Weber will be difficult OOC games. Streveler was all-world for the Coyotes, it will be interesting how the next QB will do.

    In my opinion for SDSU, we need to win a title or it’s a failure and Steig needs to leave then. I’m tired of the talent we have underperforming in the big games. JMU in the semis was the worst game in program history honestly. NDSU in the Quarters 2 years ago was horrendous.

    Winning a title or bust when youíve never made it past the semis? Wasnít 2017 SDSUís deepest season to date?
    You all are improving but the expectation that a title is the minimum qualification applies to only ndsu right now.

    Get a top 2 seed. Good goal for SDSU.

    Stig needs to leave? Wow, dude, thatís a lot. Weíve gotten better season after better season, this is just way out there. Donít worry, Stig likely retires sometime in the near future anyways and you can be happy then I guess. Good grief.

    I just don’t know if he can get us to the next level, he’s never won the big games it seems like, he’s a heck of a guy and he’s done an outstanding job with the Jacks, he brought us from D2 to FCS. Maybe I’m overreacting I don’t know, I just know some fans I know want him gone.

    I think that a lot of that is the ndsu affect. Heís taken a team that in D2 made the playoffs once. Ever. Then he made it a perennial FCS power that just went to the semi finals.

    Iíll be honest, the reason that Jacks fans feel that way IMHO is due to a couple reasons. First itís incredibly frustrating to lose at your biggest rival in the playoffs multiple times, and equally frustrating to lose in the semis the way we did. Add in the fact that we tend to have a head scratching loss every year people tend to lose sight of just how good the program is overall. I think nationally SDSU has the second or third longest streak of being ranked in the top 25, doubled the average attendance in ten years, and just went to the semi finals. Second, and this goes hand in hand with the growing fanbase, is we have a lot of ďnewĒ fans to FCS football that donít have very good knowledge of the FCS. They see ndsu on their unprecedented run and just expect to knock them off and take their place without a deeper understanding of just how hard a natty is to get. A lot of Jacks fans I know donít know what the difference is between the Pioneer league, the NEC, and the CAA. Itís part of growing as a fanbase and we will get there, but when you are growing the fanbase with unprecedented success for the program, some people are going to have over the top expectations. Thatís just my $.02 though. Wanting to force out the most successful coach weíve ever had because of coming up short in our most successful season ever is a bit shortsighted and emotional to me, especially when he is getting towards the end of his career. Outside of the recent events he has done more than enough with this program to decide how he goes out. Also donít forget that getting a new coach likely will cost a decent amount more $ while the athletic department is still working on implementing full FCOA and remodeling Frost, without bumping up student fees unlike a certain school to the south.
