I saw this quote and it struck home:

"Under _(coach)__, __(school)___ has been consistently very good but resistant to being great."

What’s the point of this? Nearly every thread gets turned into this type of discussion and it’s getting ridiculous. It was fine after the Michigan week but this team responded when they had nothing to play for. If this was a 2014 scenario I’d be jumping on board with you but it isn’t.

Look, nearly everyone predicted 9-11 wins and we got that. Not only that but we did it with what the majority of people here were calling a garbage qb.

Not everyone...
But that person is always wrong in their win prediction, so it's nothing new.

But ya, this seems to be typical discussion brought up in just about every thread.

Doing this like Mad Libs in the back of the bus:

Coach: Coach Penis
School: University of Tossed Salad


"Under Coach Penis, University of Tossed Salad (I Prefer Syrup Campus) has been consistently very good but resistant to being great."

Paul Chryst - Wisconsin. I don't know what "resistant" means in this context. They want to get over the hump, but don't have the talent and depth.

The quote was from SI.com I believe and was:

"Under KYLE WHITTINGHAM, UTAH has been consistently very good but resistant to being great."

It struck me that this quote could apply to a few different coaches who seem to hit a ceiling and just cannot get pass it despite multiple opportunities.

Coaches like Kyle Whittingham, Mike Gundy, and Paul Chryst all come to mind. I would throw Jim Harbaugh and Mark Richt in there as well.
