was just thinking about how much was made last season of the 16 goals.  so then i wondered- did coach snyder not have the guys recite the goals this offseason?  and if he did, why aren't they leading to more wins this season?   :confused:

but then i did a little more digging.  investigations are one of my specialty areas.  specifically i did a deep dive into goal #4 Improve.  why haven't the goals improved?  is 16 some magic number that a goal list should strive to achieve?  no.  seems like snyder is just a bit of a hypocrite when it comes to the goals b/c why wouldn't we keep trying to make the goals better and improve them, instead of just rolling 16 of them out there and calling it a day?

maybe the goals just don't apply to the goals.  smh, the whole thing just seems like a big sham.  if this season doesn't turn around quickly, i think it's time to throw the current 16 into the dumpster and start fresh.  i'm not sure what's missing from the current set of goals but obviously something is.

16 Goals is too many to keep up with IMO. Probably should have fewer goals and keep it simple.

16 is too many.  Gotta think that some are redundant. 

Three goals is about all anyone needs:
1. Win
2. Boss crap up constantly
3. Be adorable when executing #1 and #2

Clams nailed it (again).

I think they should focus more on heart health (one of America's leading killers).  Less red meat should be in there.  Fish oil too.

What about a letter based system instead of numbers for the goals?

i shouldn't have to say this, but i don't think the players should be drinking alcohol during the season.

I read once that you should set goals that are attainable. How about more than 5 beers on a school night?

good point there. wine is the heart-healthy choice. how about two glasses of wine on school nights for the "of age" student-athletes?

You know what is another great goal?  To take on a new hobby.  Waters seems like he would enjoy collecting and painting civil war figurines.

Hubert has stamps written all over him.   The other Klein would probably just chose yet another instrument.

If 16 goals are good wouldn't 32 be even better?

The redundancy is a concern. Probably cutting back to 8 goals would be good. Addition by subtraction. The sum is less than the whole of it's parts and such.

No because Snyder would never be able to remember that many.

Yeah, we are seeing this already with 16.

Having 32 (or any higher number of) goals only dilutes the importance of each goal, or you might say Waters them down.

#17 should have something to do with playing against Greg Robinson coached defenses. 

Glaring.

Whenever I reach a goal, I cross that one off my list and set a new, higher goal. If you aren't achieving your goals, then you just aren't being realistic imo. Adding more unatainable goals isn't going to help you either.

Now, if we're talking adding some easily attainable goals to boost confidence and moral...That, I might be able to get on board with. #babysteps
