So let's be very clear here, yes he was working at a talent disadvantage, but it's not like he's gone up against better teams, consistently, and shut them down. Most of the highly ranked offenses on this list, aren't the A List O Coordinators and teams we know about. This is a limited resume. And those using the transitive property to assume that with better talent he'll be better under the bright lights, generally speaking, don't understand the game/sport. It's not played in a vacuum or on computer simulators. We have 8 years of results up there. Which games am I supposed to be in awe of, or thinking he went up against the best and did an amazing job? Where is the kick ass performance?

This also doesn't mean I think he sucks. I just think we may need to re-evaluate expectations, especially in year one (that 2014 stat line at WF is ugly). He's not a messiah or miracle worker. I don't think he's god awful, but I also fail to see what everyone else is seeing, that we pulled off some major coup in getting him to come to ND from WF. Time will tell, but he'll face a diet of much better offenses, coached by much better coaches while at ND than he's ever seen.
