The Gregening

In December, when Charlie Weis and Steve Kragthorpe are fired, there will be many stats put up to back the decisions.  Significantly falling short of expectations on many accounts, folks will have no problem identifying the reasons for their dismissals.  And yet...all of them will be wrong.

TV analysts have been falling all over each in the past few week to praise Robinson.  As if they bear some sort of responsibility for educating the public that Greggers is more than his four year stint at SU.  The prevailing opinion being that GRob is a better DC than a head coach, which may very well be true.  Of course, they usually leave out that he was also one of the DCs at Syracuse for a time and that the reason he didn't have much talent at SU was his own doing, but whatever.
