He’s got a ring though.

halfway decent team, the Ghost of Joe Pa gets them a high ranking. Then, at some point, reality sets in and they lose a game or three.

Winner at Cincy, winner at ND, 1 loss at LSU so far after taking over a train wreck. You may not like him, but he is anything but a pretender

During his tenure at ND, he was 34th in wins

Not worth the money he's being paid, at all = pretender.

Oct 2, 2022, 4:26 PM

I'm not sure what you mean "34th in wins". Somethings seems.to be missing. In total wins?

If so, remember he took.over a mess at ND, lead it to a BCS championship in short order and later to 2 CFB playoffs. He recruited with a lot of restrictions most top tier programs do not have. True, ND lost on the big stage a number of times, but it won a lot of big games to get there. People just remember the losses, and not what they had to do to get there. Heck, for that matter we beat Bama worse than we did ND 2 weeks earlier.

Now, in 5 weeks he has LSU back in the top25.

This sounds to be based more on personal.dislike for him than what he has actually done. I just think that if you are looking for."pretenders", he isn't in that group. If he is, then pretty much every coach except Saban, Kirby and Dabo are too.

Fisher for sure.


And honestly I feel like Dabo hasn’t quite proved himself though. I mean what has he done

Beamer - nobody really expected much and so far he's lived up to that.
Harsin - don't know all that much about him but seemed like an odd choice for Auburn. Maybe a bad fit.
Norvell - inherited a dumpster fire, seems to slowly be improving.
Fisher - created the dumpster fire at FSU (although it certainly was worsened by Taggart). Won a championship when a quarterback had a magic season. Reminiscent of Gene Chisik, although probably not that bad. HE'S THE WINNER HERE!

Others have mentioned Franklin...he could give Fisher a run for the money if he had been on the list.

Jimbo. He straight up ran from Dabo when he realized a power shift was taking place. And that's against a first time coach. The facade is already cracking at A&M and if he repeats that upset loss performance of earlier he'll undoubtedly be put on a short leash if he isn't already especially given how much talent he just bought. Ya get that last part ? Bought his guys. He didn't go get em like we do and it's going to backfire on him. That's my suspicion. They already have what they want $$$$$ and could care less about natty's. Do they get paid for winning natty' s? No. They might reap some reward in the aftermath but that's a different matter. When that happens them deep pocket Texans will cut him loose faster than you can black gold. And it will serve him right. He's a phony and nothing more

flag link military_tech thumb_downthumb_up

Beamer, by far.


Oct 2, 2022, 12:44 PM

And I always felt that way about Scott Frost, but now he gone.

Jimbo is first on my list but I’m surprised I didn’t see (quick scroll) Super Sweats Netflix & Lose Jim Harbaugh mentioned. In 8 years at Michigan his bowl record (1-5?) and record against top 10 teams (2-13) is pretty bad for what he’s paid.

Harsin by a long shot. At least Bimbo has had some measure of success. I still dislike him the most though
