30.Dec.2013 Riley Comparison
Interesting post from pure-orange via ObjCritic. Apparently some of those retards are finally questioning Riley (blind indoctrination…it’s like Ben Bernanke only recognizing the housing bubble in late 2008 during meltdown and then still denying the causes).
The first 6 years:
won/lost was 31/22 (won 58% of games)
won 5 bowl games
2006 finished with AP ranking of 21st
2007 finished with AP ranking of 25th
2008 was his best PAC-10/12 record of 7-2
2008 was his best end of season AP ranking of 18th
2008 was the 3-0 (Kahut field goal) win over Pittsburg
The last five years:
won/lost was 23/25 (won 48%)
won 1 bowl / lost 2 bowls
2012 finished with AP ranking of 20th
Even some of the posters there are questioning the direction of the program and Riley’s processes and methods.
This recruiting class doesn’t look particularly special, and looks weak at need areas of DT and LB, but I’d defer to nformed assessments by Beaverkman, SS, Jack….hopefully from the 2013 class Hunt, Scott, and Onkwonko can deliver at CB, Jarmon/Villamin/Bolden at WR, the JC DTs + Grimble will contribute and Alexander/Doctor will improve and stay on the field…after next year though, opportunities for program success look to be declining.
