I ask this honestly because to me, if you have a coach like Kragthorpe, it's nice for the two years you get to smear him. If you have a coach like RichRod or Petrino, you run the risk of getting crushed two years in a row, even if that coach eventually leaves for greener pastures.

But Schiano is kinda nice. He recruits pretty well, which hurts us to a degree, and wins enough games that he's unlikely to be fired. But, aside from a great year in '06, he hasn't done much. Plus, Marrone is 2-0 against him with teams that are not, on paper, anywhere near as talented.

Another good sign? Look at the records in games decided by 7 points or less (granted Schiano has a bigger sample size here due to a longer tenure):

Schiano since '07 (so the year after RU's 11-2 season): 9-12 (1 W vs. Army, 2 W's vs. FIU)
Marrone: 8-2 (7-0 if you take it just since the start of '10)

That's got to mean something, no?
