    For the arrogant WCHAers, no, we're not talking about Mankato State.

    Two things could happen. Well, three things, as indifference is an option also.

    - Team could rally around their coach, play at a higher level, and finish strong so Comley leaves on the absolute highest note. Best case scenario.
    - Team could collectively say, "Screw you, duckface!" and totally give up on the season. If you're an NFL fan, the best example I can give you is Mike Holmgren in his "retirement" year with the Seahawks. The team could collectively think, "Well, you're not here mentally anymore. You don't want to be here anymore. You're playing the 'retirement' card for your own ego. I'm phoning it in for the rest of the season. If you don't want to be here, I don't want to be here." Clearly, the worst case scenario.

    I thinking it'll be more of the first option than the second, mixed moreso with the "indifference" option. I could see us perhaps stealing a game or two more, either this week or at Ohio State, but overall I don't think it'll be a huge difference.

    I don't think it will make a big difference. Yeah, they might play with a little extra desperation but I honestly believe the team has been giving it their all so far. I can't imagine they can improve much from the effort standpoint.

    I hope they just keep grinding and have a good finish.

    Their future coach is watching. Phoning it in would be a huge mistake. It's a bad idea to display poor work ethic to a coach that'll have a little latitude for a couple years. Everyone should be trying to impress the next coach.
