Stupid.

 

We didn't even wait to see if he'd find a QB to build around or start showing signs of getting life in that department/position.

 

I disagree with this move 100%. Should have waited. We just $iena/Patsos'ed ourselves. In a year or two, with 2-3 years left, we'll be praying he gets fired and will owe him too much money to actually fire him (see Jimmy @ LCC). And he doesn't sound like a guy who'll resign at the behest of the administration/fans either if things go terribly wrong.

Benson has lost his mind...GG has done nothing and he rewards him. Booo!!!!

 

Per this article, GG had TWO years left on his contract which would have taken him through 2020 so Benson just tacked on two years for a loser coach who's 21-24...Benson trying to get fired!

 

GG's incompetent BFF OC is along for the ride I suppose for 4 more years as well.

I'M NOT DONE!

 

In the meantime, Benson shaking down fans, product stinks, prices and mandatory donations go up, last second rules go in that further upsets fans, lying about who's idea these last second policy changes were, then REVERSE the said BS policies etc.

 

In the meantime, the loser head coach can't find his ass or a QB with both hands, product is painful to watch, BFF have jobs and he continues to protect them instead of outright firing the sad excuse for an OC. Loses his best coach that was instrumental in building a great defense, said coach takes other coaches with him.

 

This is a complete mess...

Should have waited until after/during 2018 Season. Definitely TOO early @ this point! If we showed progress during the 2018 season OK extend maybe. If no/little progress, only would have to buy out one year or with no extension & a no vote of confidence maybe he would just resign. But to extend him NOW, makes absolutely no sense, other than insure this incoming class does come. Someone most be awfully sure this class is the one going to take us to the next step??????? Otherwise WHY NOW???????

UAFB is lucky I have great seats I don't want to lose (2nd level, right at the 50)...otherwise I'd be skipping a year or two of season tickets. This is so frustrating. He better win 8-9 games next year. Rather, THIS year. If we have another craptastic year at the QB position or as an offense in general...I might pull the plug and just get over the great seats.

Bob Ford left this program in an amazing position. GG has run it into the ground, IMO.

 

Maybe I'm being overly dramatic/'emotional' but this is a disaster. Did NOT see that coming. I figured the school would re-up after his contract expired IF he proved himself...

Someone write Benson and ask him what the hell is he thinking?

Any coherent excuse on why this decision was made, now?

I could buy the extension if he was in a contract year, but the guy had TWO years left. He has been at Albany for 4 full years, he has NEVER had a winning record in the CAA. His best year was a 6th place finish at 4-4. What was the rush to lock him into a long term contract? In fact, his record is going the WRONG way over the last few years, from 4-4 to 2-6...what exactly again was the rush? He still have ZERO QB's that have shown they can play at a D1 school. He personally continues to protect an incompetent OC who should have been fired several months ago but because of their personal friendship he refuses to do so showing that he doesn't care about the product or he'd do something to put the team in position to succeed.

Benson is supposed to be on WTMM 104.5 today at 2:30 (Will Brown at 3:00)

 

See if he says anything, or if Zak and Gos ask him a tough question (not likely.)

Ed: Will just finished, still expect Benson, Gattuso at 4:00. Gattuso also to be on Wyland tomorrow morning

One is overall and one is in conference....but to your point, he's 11-21 in conference. That's brutal!!!!! Winning % of 35%...Benson has lost his mind!

I caught the end of Brown at 2:30 I presume...apparently GG will be on at 4pm.

Not sure what the hell I was writing... it should have jumped out at me.

Point was, his record sucks.

 

The Brown interview that just ended was amusing. He was in form.

Seems as though they all think our signings were of exceptional quality.

 

Again, why the rush on a new contract? It's not like he's proven to be anything of quality as a coach right now. He's going into year 5 and now has 4 years on a contract. I'm sure they bumped salary as well.

 

Most if not all of the kids he just recruited will sit next year...
