Same record as last year if these things don't change.

I am lowering my expectations this season and will let the players change them, just like I did for MBB last season.
We didn't concede the first down marker nearly as much as we have in the past. I think the main reason we did that this past season was lack of depth, and to not work our thin horses to death.

They've also mentioned that a point of emphasis for this off season is Jake making his own reads and adjustments at the line.

I don't think it's a bad thing or that it's lower expectations to say that we may come away with a similar record, but with a better team in 2017.

Title was misleading. I thought it was the actual poem about the man in the mirror.

I wish I knew a poem about Man in the Mirror...unfortunately, my cultural reference for Man in The Mirror is limited to Michael Jackson.

OP you are right this video is FIRE! Justin King, damn we are lucky to have this guy in our media department, and even luckier to have Jeff Dillman coach our strength and conditioning.

Sorry it is man in the glass. It is about looking in the mirror, so I always screw up the name.

Quote:
When you get what you want in your struggle for self
And the world makes you king for a day
Just go to the mirror and look at yourself
And see what that man has to say.

For it isn’t your father, or mother, or wife
Whose judgment upon you must pass
The fellow whose verdict counts most in your life
Is the one staring back from the glass.

He’s the fellow to please – never mind all the rest
For he’s with you, clear to the end
And you’ve passed your most difficult, dangerous test
If the man in the glass is your friend.

You may fool the whole world down the pathway of years
And get pats on the back as you pass
But your final reward will be heartache and tears
If you’ve cheated the man in the glass.
It has always been one of my favorite sports applicable poems.

If we came away with the same record with a better team wouldn't that be underachieving?

More difficult schedule so no. You should know by now the schedule can influence your record negatively or positively by a win or two very easily.

I doubt that excuse will work with the recruits we're trying to land.

Not really an excuse. A tough SOS can make or break a season. Even when you have a team full of future NFL starters. All comes down to fate really.

I only meant it as it pertains to recruits who won't bother to look into how much more difficult our 2017 schedule is. They will only look at our record and form an opinion on that. I'm sure our coaches will be telling them about the difficulty of our schedule but many of them will never hear it.

True. I'm sure it's a small part of our coach's pitch but they know that these guys want to see results on the field.
