    [QUOTE=Nick - Shep '05;2316470]Since Shepherd is moving to the PSAC next year, and will be the only non-Pennsylvania football-playing school in the PSAC, I think they should incorporate an outline of the state of West Virginia into the helmet design (maybe superimpose it over the Ram horns) to distinguish us from the West Chester Golden Rams, which has a virtually identical design (except for the color). What gave me the idea are the helmets WVU is wearing today.[/QUOTE

    Did you see the results of the first round Region one playoffs ? We all MUST realize that with Monte Cater as head coach, we would have been the beneficiary of today’s results and the prohibitive favorites to host a semifinal game. Shepherd’s administration and athletic leadership needs to take a hard look at our FOOTBALL future. We CAN win annually in the PSAC. We can compete on the national level. Let’s be sure that we have the coaching staff and leadership we need to do so.

    Our team (especially special teams) regressed during 2018. We were better than the team that now reigns as the top seed in Region 1(UND). Can we, will we, accept similar performance in 2019? Have we evaluated 2018 performance and if so, what conclusions have we drawn? What changes will we make?
    That's some serious statement. Try living around 6 or 7 years in our shoes!

    Good thing he’s not an administrator, Shepherd would have to put revolving doors on all the coaching offices.

    My suggestion was to review the season (conduct a vigorous LESSONS LEARNED session...sometimes in the business world this is called a post Morten but I have always objected to that term). Leadership should evaluate where performance was lacking and seek immediate solutions to improve.

    Celtic...your revolving door comment reflects on your thinking that their are limited solutions to a problem. That is entirely untrue. There are INFINITE solutions to problems when honest, candid discussion takes place and problem identification is matched with a strategy based on consensus. Firing the coach was your interpretation. My comment is that early identification of issues and potential resolutions will allow for time to implement many more strategies.

    One last thought...I do not know if you saw our team play; however, we actually resorted to utilizing the drop kick to make PATs. A desperate measure but one that may have been our head coach’s only option given what he was seeing in practice. That was just one of a number of special teams issues that prevented Shepherd from reaching it’s potential. Early intervention may allow for the ADDITION of coaching not necessarily subtraction.

    I write this not as a criticism of your response but rather of my post. I should have been more clear that I truly believe that Shepherd can and will succeed in the PSAC and I am not alone. A number of boosters who contribute in myriad ways also share this viewpoint. Now is the time for leadership to speak candidly about what is needed and engender support from all sources to make that a reality.

    Ramparsons: You need to switch to Decaf, 7-3 in a rebuilding year. Blow a redshirt (backup kicker) in a game that was well in hand? ND game... first start for true frosh QB. 3 year Center out due to injury in that game. Starting RB out for entire year except 2 games. Backup RB out for most of season.

    Very young team future is very bright. Patience.

    This team, this staff will compete for National Chanpionship in 2 years.

    West Chester changed their helmet design prior to the 2018 season, so it's all good now.

    I first saw WCU's new helmets against Kutztown. I absolutely love those. You can never go wrong with the old, reliable ram horns design, but it's great to see teams get creative. And what makes them even better is that they're similar to LSU, but white. I've always liked LSU's alternate white lids.

    IMO, now that West Chester has a (great) new design, Shepherd should keep their helmets how they are. Hopefully WCU rides with these for awhile and doesn't start changing helmets yearly.
