Don't forget the 2 conference titles and beating Boise in a great game..


.....but many don't want to hear that. They're still trying to figure out why anyone would possibly want to move on from good ole EC. Nevermind that Lincoln Riley did the same thing or several past coaches except for Logan. He was a very rare exception, not a rule. Like Logan, Ruffin should have gotten that extra year to see if they were truly trending down.

When Mo gets next season it will be clear if he's the right person for this job. That's a hard pill to swallow, but it would be hard for a newby to come in and be successful right away given all the surrounding circumstances. For '19 if a new coach is hired he should have a fairly sizeable group of juniors and seniors to start off with. That would be better than Holtz or Ruff left their successors.
