I 100% agree. From what I saw of the team in the belt Tourney vs. N. Texas (who being No.1 Belt seed were only ok - not real good or even close to dominant), we play a very uncompetitive style or brand of football which will only sometimes win vs. weak opponents and has little chance vs.quality opponents. Maybe that is due to lack of talent or just lame Coaching - in either case, the Coaches fault)!
