Ok. I just wanted to make sure I understand what you are saying. So you also agree he is doing a fine job. If he has State at their proverbial ceiling or roof then he must be a good coach.it may not take many years once he realizes the ceiling is the roof in Raleigh and he's done all he can there.
I mean what will change to get state past 8 a year? they cant play any easier non coms. their in state opponents are improving, the acc atlantic is the toughest division this side of the sec west.
he needs to go while his value is peaking. Like his deserter players.
I do feel like we can get better. We were real close to beating Wake and Syracuse so technically if we improve a little we could actually look at a 10+ win season. I have no realistic expectations of ever being as good as the elite in the SEC. Again, no one other than maybe Clemson (still to be determined) can make that claim. All any coach can do is get his team to reach their potential. And yes that is different at every university and their are many factors that are completely out of the coaches control.
