Pete Lembo is Not Your Coach
This is a warning to all BCS Athletic Directors, Pete Lembo is bad news. Trust me on this. He isn’t the guy to be the next coach of your school. So Kansas, Mississippi State, NC State and the rest of you perennial cellar dwellers should just stay away. I know it’s easy to be impressed by the Ball State Cardinals recent success. They did just beat BCS schools back to back weeks, securing half of the teams wins all time versus such programs in the process. The Cardinals may seem to be on the rise sure. They have gone from two wins a couple of years ago to an offensive force that looks to go bowling this year. You guys are being fooled. This Lembo fella is just running the long con.
Look at the last two games, Ball State barely won. They needed a last second miracle to beat Indiana and Southern Florida. Pish Posh! Indiana rarely plays football and Southern Florida had to be sleepy from that long flight. So there you go Mr. Iowa State. Stop sniffing around asking questions about how he is getting so much production out of that offense. How he is thriving with ol’ noodle arm. How they are 3-1 with a defense slightly more porous than a pasta strainer. Take that back to Ames and on the way swing through Minnesota and tell them they aren’t interested either. Mention to the rest of the AD’s out there that Pete hates puppies, candy, kids, and spring break.
I bet he’s lazy too. It really shows. If he wasn’t he’d of planned for IU to be forced into using a third string quarterback. I bet Steve Spurrier would have planned for that! You want further proof? Look at his offensive play calling. Those super effective runs up the middle show a real lack of creativity. Sure the guy from UCLA was keen to bring up the trick play that saw Jamil Smith throw a touchdown to Wenning. You can also forget the fact that 11 Cardinals have caught passes this year or that the backfield can throw four looks at you. This man is vanilla as 1955.
You guys are from big time programs, you need big time names. Ok, you guys can also get by with the assistants of big time names. Whatever floats your boat. Keep on ignoring Pete Lembo. We Ball State fans have been down this path before. Look what San Diego State and Michigan have gotten out of stealing Brady Hoke! Nothing but a few bowl wins and some Denard INTs. Can you believe the gall of that lady from Boston College? She had the nerve to talk about Coach Lembo’s past. How all he does is turn programs around and win games. Look lady that was D-2 sissy ball stuff. You Big 12, 10, SEC, Pac 24 types need not worry about that. No no no, at the end of the day trust Dr. Sheckles. I know you big time programs will soon come a calling for our coach, but really he’s a waste of your time. (Did I mention he talks during movies?)
