I think the team plays with the attitude of its coach. He's not a get excited kind of a guy and when things go wrong on the field His head goes down. The players see this and give up. I hope they start working harder in the weight room and condition better in the off season. You just can't put on the uniform and expect everyone to say "Oh no it's The Green Machine were afraid of them" and practice hard all week and not come to Friday and turn on the switch because you can't do it every week. 3 A's Attitude,Aptitude and Alltitude. Which means have a good feeling for you teammates don't get down on them and make them feel good,work hard,and a State Title.

Lengendary coach Bob Reade had the psychological aspect of football down. He was never buddy buddy with the players. He was more a figurehead who worked his players hard and motivated them to play for him. That's what separates great teams from good teams. Nick Saban had less talent than LSU, but destroyed them in the championship game. The psychocological part of the game is way underrated.

Green machine is primarily a run offense. When they can open holes the running backs can move the ball. When they play bigger teams they fill the box and stop the running offense. Not enough passing offense to keep defense from crowding the box. On defense you see more spread passing sets which they get picked apart.if you are not a passing team you really cant learn to defend against the pass properly. Passing teams can move the ball quickly so who cares if you can eat up alot clock with the run

I know people want Geneseo to win, but calling the coach a dumb ass is going to far. (Bill) If u look at d backs which are injured mostly ACL'S that is huge for any team to overcome. I do believe we need to pass more and get our D-Line on the line of scrimmage and not a yard back. the new football season starts in November with weight lifting and conditioning...U offensive and defensive linemen need to get in the wrestling room and wrestle this gives u quickness strength, leverage, and a good mental approach to the game.

Bill,
There is an intelligent way to have a discussion about your perceptions, whether true or not, about the merits of the current head coach. Using the language you used just reflects bad on you as an individual and on Geneseo fans in general. While winning fb games is not a birthright for Geneseo, it is important that we honor those who have worn the colors before with how we play the game today. While the current teams results are not what we would like as fans and alums, he still is the HC for this season and deserves our support. All that other stuff will be decided by someone other than you and me at a later date.

Well, it sure does look like Geneseo made the playoffs. It amazes me how disrespectful people are. First of all, don't blame the coach. He isn't the one out there playing. Sure, the coaches motivate them and lead them in the direction they need to go. But the coaches can only do so much. Second of all, I can't believe how grown men are talking down on a high school football program that is made up of 14-18 year-olds. Grow up. Also, the injuries we have had this year are at a ridiculous amount. Most of them being torn ACL's. Being an athlete myself, tearing your ACL is one of the hardest things to return from, and is probably the most heartbreaking. And one more thing, the pressure these boys have on them is ridiculous. I can almost guarantee you that you have never had an entire town counting on you to keep the tradition alive. Our players have people come up to them daily telling them that they better win this week or the whole town will be disappointed in them. I'm sorry, but as a teenager, that is a RIDICULOUS amount of pressure.
Oh, and by the way. The Green Machine just secured their 50th consecutive WINNING season. When your school has that many CONSECUTIVE winning seasons, then you can start talking down on us like a bunch of petty little girls. But for now, you can have a seat and stop talking. Thank you.
