Except there was no "trend" down


This is what I don't get about the Ruff argument, there was no trend down. Ruff's last four years were: 8 regular season wins and bowl game (loss), 9 regular season wins and bowl game (won), 8 regular season wins and bowl game (loss), then a 5 -7 final season. There was no trend down unless people are delusional enough to think that ECU is going to win 9 regular season games a year on a regular basis. It was three really good seasons (not great) and then a losing season.

Ruff did not have great success, but he certainly had pretty good success based on our historical average. But there was no trend downward and we'll never know whether the next season would have been a winning season or not. What we absolutely do know is that he never had any season approaching what we've seen for the last two years.
