My how things changed... Jeff Scott

I am not bumping the thread (click on it below), but the earliest thread I could find mentioning Jeff Scott was December 7, 2016 - there were two.  This one:

Actually had a poll everyone will now enjoy.

Gotta give @BullEdD credit for being all over Scott more than four years ago.

68% of us thought that CS was who we wanted.  And we will be voting for a President in November.  Nothing to worry about here. 🤨

I started one back then. Never liked the Strong hire. Wanted Scott all along.

I guess listen to Texas fans, I believe sometimes things just don’t work out in life and that fans will always see it as the fault of the coach but this time they appear to have been right and we were wrong.

I actually thought Strong would work out as USF coach. I'm a believer that that coaches should stay near where they developed because they understand the style of football played by their recruits. So I thought that Strong's problem at Texas was trying to put in a style of play that was new to the Texas players. Since he was most familiar with Florida and southeast U.S. style of play that he would do better here than in Texas. I didn't realize that his real problem was lack of accountability on the football field. He never put in any effort here.  

When we look back at our previous coaches the successful ones put in a lot of work effort (Leavitt, Taggert) and the unsuccessful ones didn't put in the level of effort (Holtz, Strong). Now to be fair, Holtz did put in the effort on offense but definitely not on defense. Strong doesn't appear to have put in effort anywhere.
