This year's 1-10 record better than last year's for LU

Not all 1-10 records are the same.

The Lincoln football team has put together back-to-back 1-10 seasons. Yet, there's little doubt the Blue Tigers are on the upswing.

"We didn't win as many games as we'd like to win," Lincoln head coach Mike Jones said Tuesday during this season's final Lincoln Blue Tiger Quarterback Club weekly luncheon. "Without a doubt we were a better football team. As a program we're still building and learning.

"Now we have to learn how to win. There's some games we had a chance to win and we didn't. We're getting in position, we're competing, we're working hard. We're getting better as a football team."

The statistics prove Jones' point - Lincoln was indeed a better football team in 2012 than in 2011, despite what the records say.
