For them, this is all Jags' fault and Spaz is an innocent victim who he needs more time to show what he can do. Personally, I think they are all Worst Generation types who have immense sympathy for a fellow member who similarly failed upward and despise the rest of us expecting some sort of results.
That said, apparently something like 90% of the board is in the Fire Spaz camp. But about 95% are in the Fire Gene camp (some of those who want to give Spaz more time blame GDF for Spaz's failure). Basically, Gene and Spaz are the great unifiers of the BC fandom.
That morano poster whose post is above loves Spaz, by the way if he read this board his monocle would not be long for this world. There are a few others like that, I believe they are mostly very elderly - like alive during WWI. The mcrimmins poster has seen the light. BCrulz claims BC had a bad offense with Matt Ryan in '07 so he is a retarded person who's opinion is less valued than the others. The Legrands of the world, I get the impression aren't happy with Spaz but seem to be of the ilk that think it is outside the role of a sports fan to complain about performance in such sport.
As domingo posted, despite the near consensus that Spaz is embarrassingly overmatched, the merry majority still caveat everything with "realizing the team is young," "even though Jags didn't recruit for 2 years," "despite the Jags attrition," etc. I guess its improvement over when somehow after watching the Clemson '09 game they came away with the conclusion that Spaz could possibly be the guy to lead BC. Also they had this turn back to maybe Spaz is turning things around after Maryland and immediate reversal after FSU which was just silly.
One thing that I guarantee will happen, is if Spaz is not fired after a 2-11ish season, that board will forget how bad the season was by roughly February and there will again be sycophants praising the brilliance of the cushion and cursing the name of the spread in favor of "three yards and a cloud of dust."
