It's interesting as far as USF goes but don't think for a minute....

that would have held a coach forever in a non-BCS league if he got an offer to coach in a BCS league. Skip turned down at least 3 BCS jobs before taking the USF job. I don't thin he regretted it overall as he got a good size raise and was close to both his and his wife's parents.

As far as his offense goes, I guess you didn't get excited watching Dwayne Harris, Andre Allison, Jamar Bryant, Chris Johnson or Dominique Lindsay, etc. You didn't enjoy Chris Johnson running for 1400 yards or Dwayne Harris becoming one of the best players in the history of ECU football?

Memories and reality often don't mix. Fact is, under Hotlz we averaged 1 point less per game than we did under Steve Logan. And, here's one for you, Hotlz's offense (Holtz called the plays, not our current OC by the way), averaged more points per game than Lincoln Rilely's did before Riley left. Think about that one.

The issue with Hotlz's offenses were the last 3 years Patrick Pinkney was QB. While an effective QB, he was not a passer beyond 20 yards. Most of you don't remember how often we tried long passes but P. Pinkney was off target. The longer passes were more successful with James Pinkney and Andre Allison in Holtz's first 2 years.
