Not sure what you are referring to by "So you're not on board with the hire", but yes, I do think the CCS era set the program back.
I am simply referring to the OP's original post:
At 7-0 last year, most people - pollsters, people not showing up to games and most importantly myself - knew that it was an illusion (see my post predicting we would lose 4 of our last 5 games).
Agree with the above.
Kelly then had to witness six straight losses validating the underlying mess hidden by a 7-0 start. By bringing Strong back for the 2019 season he is now culpable for the disaster that everyone has been set up for this season, and the likelihood that the program will now be set back for years.
Agree with the above. Kelly is the AD. He owns the disaster or greatness of the coaches he hires or those he allows to stay employed.
Kelly can schedule as many 2-for-1's he wants against P5 schools that look great in the headlines, but every game he allows the Charlie Strong disaster to continue, Kelly becomes more of the problem of what's wrong with USF football.
Again, I agree. I hate the 2 for 1s and again, Kelly owns it, he is the decision maker (he is the problem causer and problem solver).... That all being said, he made the right move by letting CCS go. So what is the beef here? What part are people getting all hurt about and demanding apologies over?
