If we are “out-coached” in every game we lose, does Smith out-coach every team he beats? Or does it not work that way?

Who knows. I don't.

Of course you and I know wins/losses are a simple and generally accepted measure of coaching performance.

Re: Interesting GA article.

Maybe this has been asked already, but is it possible GA did something that would warrant termination for cause that would disqualify him from contract $, and after discussing with employer, decision was made for GA to walk away and "forfeit" the $ as an amicable and reasonable compromise?

Sam's move that we never saw?

Didn't Sam say that he was going over that final play scenario and had a move cooked up, but then changed his mind after the sddude was defending so well?

1-I'd like to see the move and 2-Nice audible by Sam BAM Merrill.

SDSU knew EXACTLY what to expect yet he still pulled up, and BAM! Game over.

SDSU and all other Western teams without deep NCAA experience will generally do poorly in the NCAAs.

Why I like Coach Smith

1. Fist bumps for opposing coaches after Wyoming game.

2. Regularly loses his voice.

3. Called timeout with 7 seconds left after Leon Rice called timeout with 12 seconds left after game was in the refrigerator.

4. Maybe most importantly, shows resilience in the face of opposition.
