What is the basis for this claim?

I am sure Sujay Lama is happy at Arkansas state and Brad Stracke was just dying to coach at Odessa college. It may not look like much to you but notice how those folks -who had once been good but had been starting to stall out a few years ago - magically started pursuing new opportunities once the new AD wasn't bogged down anymore by basketball coaching search and football reorg.

You asked how many conference championships he won at Tech and my answer was to point out that Tech doesn't have many to celebrate in their history.  Dumb question on your point.  Then again, you appear to row in the same boat with Ben Gooding in only showing up when things aren't going as expected.

How many was Morris responsible for? Genius.

and Bean is still playing at a Big 12 level on a team with a potent offense.

This kind of undermines your point IMO.  Because Bean looks like a more talented player that either lost his job to Aune or didn't like/respond to the coaching under Littrell.  He went to Big 12 bottom feeder Kansas not Kansas State. 

 Aune wasn't good, he was just adequate at best for FBS.  And the only reason he got an invite to an NFL camp is because he is a pro-athlete with 6 years experience in an actual pro-organization.   If he is 23 without the layoff from football with the stats he put up at North Texas, I doubt he gets invited to a camp.  The accuracy just isn't there. 

The revisionist positive history of Coach Littrell is laughable.  No bowl wins, no 10 win seasons, and no conference championships.   The "best" wins of his career were a fluke win in the rain at home against UTSA and win verses Arkansas who had maybe the worse coach in their history at the helm.   Yes, it was Arkansas an SEC team but that Arkansas team was worse than SEC West doormat Vandy.   Arkansas beat 1 FBS team that year; homecoming against Tulsa.  And no way would a victory over Vandy be viewed as so entertaining.  We are in a football winning desert so these little droplets of relief seem bigger than they actually are.   It is debatable as to whether he should gotten the first extension (a raise a bonus at the time of the first extension maybe but no extension).

I guess you missed the point.  Saying Littrell and DD are remembered as all time greats here isn’t revisionist positive history.  It’s a fact.  Not a great look that our best coaches were batting just at or below .500.

Say whatever you want about Aune, but he got the invite to camp regardless of what you think or stats show.  It’s not just Littrell evaluating him at that point.
