"You’re only as good as your record," the linebacker added. "But I don’t feel like we’re a 4-4 team."

But that’s the problem. They are a 4-4 team, with only one substantial win against a decent opponent. The rest of their success this season is Cheez Whiz, and the rest of their schedule is filled out with teams — Georgia Tech, Idaho, San Jose State and New Mexico State — that, even if the Cougars win, it won’t prove much to them, or to anybody else.
