Shows how well thought of MMT was; KD may surprise

MMT clearly was making an impact and had the program going in a better direction than it's been for a long time.

I take the KD bashing with a grain of salt. Think back to Herm Edwards' hiring. It was ridiculed to say the least. In fact, he came in at the same time as Chip Kelly and Kevin Sumlin. Nearly everyone in here lauded those hirings and predicted massive success for them, particularly Chip at UCLA. Buffalo Bob was the only one I remembered who predicted Chip might not work out so well. Fast forward two years and Chip and Sumlin are on the hot seat about to get fired if they don't produce this year and ASU is doing very well with Herm.

Another example in Mario Cristobal. Many questioned his hire in view of his lack of experience, and the fact he wasn't that successful in his first stint at Florida International. He's now one of the hottest coaches in the country.

I'm not predicting KD will be the next Cristobal or Herm Edwards but just saying it's possible the conventional wisdom bashing KD's hire may turn out to be wrong.
