My view is that almost-wins, especially against playoff and other good teams, as well as conference wins, does count in evaluating a coach in his second year. It's not just wins at that point. Eventually, it's wins, as well as other factors (team behavior, fund raising, attendance, etc.). Is the program improving and trending up, or is it not, is the key factor?HookedonGriz wrote: ↑Fri Apr 20, 2018 12:56 pmI think you brought in a good coach in Choate. I think he has brought in better talent recently. But until that translates into wins on a football field (the only true measure you can use) then it is what it is. ALMOST beating good teams doesn't count for shit....unless you're a Bobcat. Prove it on the field and I'm happy to talk. Until that happens it's the same old shit there.poorgriz wrote: ↑Thu Apr 19, 2018 9:58 pmIf you don't think Bobcats are trending upwards, then either you aren't following them or you don't understand football. You're in for a rude awakening.HookedonGriz wrote: ↑Thu Apr 19, 2018 4:18 pmHonest answer is no, not until they prove on the field they can win and not have a losing record. 95% of bobcat nation thought they would dominate last year and get at least seven or eight wins. Well that didn't happen....again. But everyone just assumes it will happen this year? It's always "next year" with Bobcat fans.poorgriz wrote: ↑Thu Apr 19, 2018 4:09 pm
It's called "trend analysis", you should look it up.
I get it, it's the off season and this is all fun and games taking jabs at each other and telling each other how good our respective coaches are lol, but I have a serious question for every griz fan on here.
Do you think the Bobcat Football program is trending up right now heading into 2018?
Just like it's not just wins at UM and for Stitt. Stitt has some wins, but was the program improving and trending up?
