I have not been impressed with the "no bullshit" straight talker since his Tactless beginning. Here is his take on his team's play;
“We missed some tackles in the second half. It was clear to see,” UTEP coach Sean Kugler said after his team gave up 499 yards (258 rushing, 241 passing). “We had them wrapped up in the backfield a few times, especially third downs, third and two, third and three, we didn’t finish the tackles and didn’t finish plays.”
Oh and there's this(regarding the penalty on a pass;
“It was a killer one,” Kugler said. “That usually results in guys not moving their feet. But it’s something that we emphasized all week. It was a cleaner [game] but again, a big penalty came in a critical situation.”
But here comes our broad shouldered coach:
“This has got to be fixed by myself and the staff,” Kugler said. “I assume full responsibility and I always will, and I’ll never give up on these kids. I hope they stick together and stick with each other and I hope they stick by me because I want a team of fighters and right now I acknowledge we’re not a good team. We’re 1-5. We have half a season left. There’s a lot still to play for. It’s my responsibility to get the most out of the players and I’ve got to evaluate myself because right now I’m not getting the most out of the players. That falls on me and I understand that.”
Don't you just love it when coaches and politicians take "full responsibility"? No shit, Sherlock! You recognize that, do you? Of course you are responsible! Who did you think WE THOUGHT was responsible? That is head coaching, right there. WE KNOW WHO IS THE ARCHITECT AND BUILDER of the shack. We really didn't need you to clear that up for US. Maybe it was him just now realizing it. This shit is your shit, Sean! And the fans aren't confused at all. We know it isn't the players, and if it is the players you are responsible for them, you idiot!
He is insane! He is going to stand by his players!?! You fucking idiot! He wants a team of fighters! He has built a one armed team that he puts in the ring to get beaten like a red headed step-child and says he wants fighters! Seriously. He is not right in the mind. He isn't getting the most out of his players! Once again, it is the players. He kind of takes the blame by blaming them. It is his fault they aren't playing winning football. It is my fault that it is their fault. This has got to be fixed by him and his staff!! They have to fix the players. Not the coaching. Not his stupid one armed offensive philosophy. Nope. The coaches have to get to work fixing the players. That is the way to take responsibility.
"It’s my responsibility to get the most out of the players and I’ve got to evaluate myself because right now I’m not getting the most out of the players. That falls on me and I understand that.”
You sir, are a fucking idiot. You time has come and gone. That shit about not needing to be told, well that was just more bullshit coming from the "NO Bullshit" guy. I call the No Bullshitter out as being the best no bull bullshitter I've ever seen. He has that hard guy countenance down pat, doesn't he. Monday he will be talking about the players. The team needs to get healthy. Anyone in the Den want to say why we can't keep healthy enough to field a decent team? Fucking players. Kugler and his staff needs to stand by them though.
Sean, there must be a team that needs an offensive line coach. Time to head over to Kinkos and get some resumes printed up. You may want to leave off the recent stint in El Paso. Emphasize your commitment to personal responsibility.
