How soon is real soon? Cant tell from year 1. We have a poor oline without a mobile qb. With a stout defense we will probably be 8-4.
Applewhite is not at fault for the previous coaches not properly addressing the oline.
I think you need 4 years to see if he is a truly great coach capable of sustaining a program. You only need a couple weeks to know if he is a Levine.
