Yeah Gailey did good against Miami and Clemson, but those teams were under different coaching, and they got fired for a reason.Paul has to start going .500 against the big four in my opinion to keep his job. We all know Gailey couldn't win the big one but he beat Miami and Clemson on a regular basis. There was a stretch where we owned Clemson and beat Miami at least four in a row. We've always had trouble with VT no matter the coach but to me they seem like the one team we should compete with because there recruiting isn't that impressive.
A fair comparison would be pairing opponent coach and opponent, and then comparing records. For example records vs. Miami with Shannon, Clemson with Bowden, FSU with Bowden, Wake with Grobe etc.
