    I was giving him a point of reference that it is hard to improve on 8-1. Some examples of that are how his last two years he had good teams and won 8 games all year. Strong is about to win 10 probably.

    Do you think the schedules are comparable?

    i think it is very difficult to be better than 8-1. i also don't think a coach winning 8 games at a school in 2009 makes you likely to be significantly better at that school in 2017

    you are taking my "probably not as good" comment way too seriously for someone who said that they have no idea if they would be as good or not

    I think Venables is a great DC for us, but the whole out of control get-back-coach nonsense would make me hesitant to hire him as a head coach.

    I wouldn't trade him, but I think it's kinda strange even as a coordinator.

    The Big East was pretty bad by the time USF joined it.

    The year they got up to number 2, West Va was in the top 10, Cincy was in the top 20, Rutgers was as high as 10, UConn was in and out of the top 25, Louisville was mediocre and Pitt and Syracuse were bad. It wasn't a powerhouse, but it absolutely blows the current AAC out of the water.

    The AAC currently has three teams in the top 25.

    Ok, but USF hasn't played any of them, there were 8 teams in the big east at the time and there are 12 in the AAC now. This schedule is really bad

    I don’t think they’d beaten any of their good conference opponents when they got to #2, either. IIRC, that was all based on beating Auburn.

    Regardless, I agree that it’s not a good conference

    They beat UNC and then #5 WV the two weeks after they beat us. They were 6-0 and then lost 3 in a row. My whole point from the start was just agreeing that their "peak" as a program was when the were ranked #2 and that 8-1 this year has been fairly unimpressive(even though I think they're pretty solid).

    I know it's been posted itt and sorry to go more off tangent but their record this year is a mirage, unless they beat UCF it's a failure of a season with how much talent Taggart left.

    Don't know if Leavitt would have been the best guy in the long run for USF but he probably would've stayed there as long as possible, his combustible nature might've kept bigger schools away. Regardless, taking the program from trailers to #2 in the country was remarkable. USF's fan support is non-existent and they probably have a much worse ratio of Florida, FSU, Miami, etc fans that go there as opposed to UCF.

    Nice pay day for a woman beater.

    Isn't that the rumor why he can't be a HC?

    He gets paid more than a lot of places offer first time head coaches and he works for a HC that can stay as long as he wants. Shouldn’t be too tough to figure out...even for someone like you.

    Right. He’s not a head coach because (1) he doesn’t want to be, or (2) a skeleton worse than banging a booster’s wife. That’s why the banging a booster’s wife is irrelevant.

    Right, but the way you worded the post I responded to was he didn’t want to be a head coach.

    Sure, he probably does still aspire to be a HC, but he isn’t going to take a pay cut and ruin a good thing to be a HC at Arkansas State. He would need a good reason and other schools that have openings wouldn’t be able to compete with the money or would want someone more proven. That is different than cut and dry saying he doesn’t want to be a HC or there is something very wrong with him and there is no in between.
