No, we didn't. Certainly not offensively speaking. Once TD was fired and Coach Chico took over, that gave them a little spark. But early 2010 was clearly worse than 2009 on the offensive side of the ball.
4 straight bowl games and he beat Cincinnati which may go down as one of the biggest wins in the entire history of the program. Did not have a pot to piss in facility wise. I kid you now, when recruits were in town they AVOIDED Fouts and basically tried to pretend it was not there. I think they would all killed to have the resources we have today.
Don’t forget 12% of total losses. He had a worse conference record than Matt Simon and a worse overall record than both Seth and McCarney. He was fortunate enough to have the Big West collapse right before Boise got good amd that Troy and FAU didn’t join the Belt until the end of his “miraculous” run. (He lost at least once to each during that 26 game streak).
