Then I think your book is not a book I want to read, good sir!
Yup, I just went there.
Try to deal in reality. %$&#in' gimme a break.
Reality is that his career record is 11 and 15 against FBS teams, his teams perform horribly in the Dome, and with the exception of the Pinstripe bowl the offense that gets rolled out is among the worst in college football. If not for Scott Shafer there isn't a whole lot of accomplishment yet to the tenure. That's reality.
My reality is that he's 15-15 with a bowl victory coming off a 4 year stretch with 10 wins overall and the laughing stock of the country. Were you really expecting top 25 teams in year 3? I'm going to go out on a limb and assume you don't watch a lot of non-SU college football if that's what you were expecting.
And maybe fantastic was a bit much but I threw it out there as bait anyway knowing I'd get somebody cranky enough to argue with me. Ok, so instead of fantastic, I'll go with very, very, very, very, very, very good. That's 6 verys. Does that work for you boss?
And just to be clear, I'm talking about being 6 very good up TO THIS POINT. Obviously, expectations are ratcheted up now that we've stabilized the sinking Grob ship. I don't expect a .500 football team going forward so don't think I'm a soft grader. I'm just a realist (hint: you are not).
