Let's take his best year, shall we? One of those wins was 67-65 3OT against Illinois. Obviously that could have been a loss. Another was a game-winning drive against ND to win 28-24. That could have obviously been a loss too. Oh, and let's not forget he almost got caught the week after the ND game by UMass, who was an FCS opponent...only won by 5 points that game. Beat IU by one whole touchdown. Wowza.
And that was a season with 6 losses. And it was his best year here. So soon we forget how bad it really was.
I mean, we're talking about a team that's 6-1 right now. Obviously a large question mark looms over their heads given the gauntlet that faces them in November. But, Hoke doesn't deserve to get crucified for anything until there's a real reason to (and no, almost losses are NOT a real reason). If he finishes the year 0-5...yeah, maybe we should crucify him then. Maybe you can start to compare him to RR then. But right now, that comparison is laughable at best.
