and I think he should have leaned on offensive basics more (especially running the ball and letting the OL get settled in and then moving to play action).

Were there holes? Absolutely. Do I think it could have been a 10 win team? No, not under any coach, most likely. Did Navy and Army have more raw talent than us in 2007? No. Purdue? No. Should it have been as embarrassing as it was? No.

6 or 7 wins should have been attainable. There are no excuses for 08 and 09 and I believe that he should have been let go after 08.
