As one of the more vocal supporters of RR and someone who felt Brian didn't go far enough in his disdain for the Hoke hire I must now publicly admit it looks like I was wrong. Very wrong. If you break down what a person has to do to be a successful college football coach I think the major buckets look something like this:
Assistant coach selection: check
Recruiting: double check
Game planning: ?
Halftime adjustments: ?
With half the precincts reporting in, so far this has been a Hoke landslide. He has massively exceeded my expectations in the first two categories and I'm now more than a bit optimistic he'll do the same in the last two.
Maybe Brandon DID know what he was doing after all. Go figure....a guy with his credentials, background and insight knew more about selecting the right coach to lead the football program I love than me.
