Since 1990, no UNLV coach won over 40% of games. Since that date, only Hauck and John Robinson had a winning record and went to a bowl game. Don't see how anyone can draw many conclusions from that mess and those records, other than that UNLV became a very tough place to coach in the past 3 decades.ABQCat wrote: ↑Thu Apr 19, 2018 10:35 am Of the last 4 coaches at UNLV, Bobby had the worst W/L percentage. You have to go back to the mid 90s to find a UNLV coach worse the Bobby. This throws out the "nobody wins and UNLV" line of thinking.
For as much that folks over here want to talk about Choate's 9-13 record, he's still way better than Bobby's last run as a head coach. Choate's extension is the result of a forward thinking AD and University President who recognize the improvements in his second year: 5-3 in conference play last year, 7-3 in his last 10 conference games, and he's 2-0 against the grizz. They also recognize the change in culture and much improved buy-in from the players, fans and donors. They also recognize how damaging the coaching carousel is to continuity and recruiting, and conversely how much more effective recruiting goes when the recruits know the coach is going to stick around. There isn't a single Cat fan that is even close to disagreeing with the extension decision, and even the curmudgeons that love to whine and complain are on board with direction of the program.
Right now there is complete unity in the MSU Bobcat football universe between the coaches, the team, the administration and the fans.
Hauck is clearly a better coach now than when he he first left UM, due to his additional years of coaching experience, recruiting contacts, and maturity. He is still full of energy, has a great grasp of detail, great knowledge of the game, and is a motivator. Has assembled a great group of coaches. The team is generally liking what they have seen. They want to win.
This is good enough for me. BS33 is back to showing what a total idiot he can be. Some of what he says is totally embarrassing. I feel sorry for the guy.
