Beckman's classes rated, in chronological order, 65th, 47th, 74th, and 44th in the country.When coupled with beckmans classes
Lovie's thusfar: 48th, 50th, 71st, and for now 85th.
Steady as she goes talent-wise. Not enough to win big, but plenty enough not to be pathetic.
Great things, yes, that would be a crazy expectation. Bare competence and a heartbeat of potential growth through three seasons? That would be the lowest of reasonable expectations, and we have not seen even that.it would be crazy to have expected great things to start lovies tenure.
Correct. This is the right context through which to view the situation. A very Theo Epstein, Sam Hinkie, Moneyball, clever guy approach to college football program building. It's not over yet, and the experiment was in many ways run with this season as the intended inflection point, so we should keep an open mind, but the early returns on the "burn it down" hypothesis is that it's a stupid, wasteful, unnecessary thing to do. We wanted to eschew the transfer route and have ended up going there anyway.Lovie (and Whitman) decided to burn the program to the ground
If we do end up having a new coaching administration next year, I hope that lesson has been learned.
