As Rich Rod has been a coach, hes been pretty successful (as we all know). But, if all you havn't noticed, his only losing seasons are when he doesnt have a dual threat qb. 3-8 season at WVU, and 3-9 at mich(both first seasons). When hes had a dual threat qb, he hasnt lost more than 8 games in a season.
He has no more than 2 losses in every year for the conference, with a dual threat qb.
His 6 years at WVU with a dual threat qb his record is 57-18(76% winning)
And as we all know, Lloyd carrs types of players and RR's type of players differ. It'll take a full 4-5 years before RR gets every single player he recruited on his team.
How did he fair when he did that at WVU?
Record(in 3 years): 32-5(91.4%)
And the bad part we all witnessed, with pro style qbs..
Record: 6-17 (26% winning)
I know all of this stuff is things we already knew, but when you see the numbers its different. The facts tell it all, with a dual-threat qb, RR is the godfather of the spread offense because you can open up the playbook so much more. Yes our o-line isnt too good, but athletic wise and outta highschool ranks, we were better than WVU. Different schemes, but...
