Well, we are 7-6…after 9-4…after 13-1.
Yes, we have taken a fairly dramatic fall over two years. Good coaching can turn this around.
But what saves us from looking really…really mediocre (because that is what 7-6 is) are our conference mates.
If UCF wins that Peach, it gives the conference respect.
USF will finish Top 25
Memphis can finish Top 25
That could be three teams in the Top 25. So even though we lost to garbage and mediocre teams (Tulsa = garbage, Texas Tech = mediocre, Tulane = mediocre) and a couple good teams in Memphis and FSU, our Conference continues to rise and is getting some respect.
We may not get blue blood money next go round, but it will be better than the last deal. And hiring good coaches is all about money.
