My point just being sustained incremental success, breed success.

See Sendek, Herb for a counterpoint. Plenty of improvement, not enough accomplishments. And 06/07 looked to be a stinker even if Herb stayed.

Maybe I need to be even more specific. I like BJD’s “win a conference championship as a demonstration of success” to placate the fanbase/ enjoy some hearty goodwill from them.

I think one thing the article ignores is the local ties aspect. Archie was our point guard, met his to-be wife at State. Marshall is from SC and has ties elsewhere in the South. This is not at the level of Roy’s linkage to Dean Smith, but its what makes the scenario “seem” possible for either. I agree that the Indiana comment is puzzling; that job is more like NC State’s than it is like Ohio State’s.
