It would be that the team has NOT given up on Cam this season. Yes, players have checked out of some games, but they haven't given up.
And that's in contrast to Randy Shannon and his situation at the U. Down there, his upperclassmen have thrown in the towel (you don't lose 48-0 unless you give up), and are just looking forward to this season ending. And that means Shannon will have to decide how to manage his juniors-soon-to-be-seniors. Does he sit them, talk to them, or what?
For Cameron, its much, much simpler.
