As for doing some research...here's some research for you. Not looking to far out but looking at other CAA affiliate members and peer institutions in the AE. Maine and UNH joined the CAA in 2007. Throwing away each teams inaugural season (Fords first year)...year 2-5 records.
4 year in conference winning %
By contrast, a coach that has 4 full years under his belt has a winning % of 34% and a record of 11-21 and we are being told but it's so hard...other programs struggle making this move. <- this isn't even true...
Again, I'm not asking for him to be fired, I just don't understand why there was a rush to extend a coach and commit another 900k or more to him when he had multiple years left on his contract.
Not an excuse but the jump from A10 to CAA is not as big as the jump from NEC to CAA.
I also question the timing of this contract extension. I like to give coaches time to build their program and GG has had time to build it with mediocre to bad results. I think a contract extension takes the pressure off him a little and that can be a good or bad thing. I personally think it's better to have a little pressure of a "contract year" to light a bit of a fire and make the proper changes.
Either way I'm gonna support the program and root hard for victories!
Click, don't take this the wrong way but I think a bit of your bitterness comes from GG blocking you on twitter. haha! Which I totally understand by the way. He shouldn't be blocking season ticket holders.
I don't care about that...my bitterness comes with him not being able to find a QB worth a crap...and continued support for an OC who sucks! Don't care about Twitter...
I hope he (GG) and UA kill it this year...that is my only goal and if he's winning and here for the next 20 years, GREAT!!!!!
