Being honest with yourself is first step in rebuilding

In his first season as head coach at Texas A&M, former Packers coach Mike Sherman has gone 4-8, including a 49-9 loss to rival Texas on Thanksgiving.

But while the Aggies didn't reach their goal for wins this season, Coach Sherman says his team is further ahead than many sub-.500 teams:

"In spite of the fact that we didn't win and didn't perform well enough throughout the course of this season, I don't think you heard many excuses or finger-pointing or lack of accountability from the players or the coaches. And that's a starting point, because if you're not honest with yourself, you're not honest with your shortcomings."
