6 wins plus a killer recruiting class would certainly tilt the scale in CGCs favorWhat if it's a mediocre season? Like 6-6 and a thffpptt bowl game? Then what? Is that going to be enough to save his job?
With the previous three years, maybe six wins is a good year, by comparison. But a good year, to me, is 8 wins. That's 2/3 of your regular season games. You win 2/3 of your games in MLB and you're on fire. In the NBA, it's about 53 wins, and that's a good year. Puts you at 11-6 or thereabouts in the NFL, and that's good enough most years to at least get a wild card spot.
7 wins is decent. At least you broke even. That can let you leave Vegas with at least a smile and some change in your pocket.
6 is mediocre to lackluster. Tepid fits as well.
5 is dear God how much longer do we have to put up with this (bleep)?
4 or < is ... time to storm the castle.
I think 6 wins out of 12 (no cancellations) is the minimum, but like you said it doesn't guarantee Collins will be retained.I could never want my team to lose.
Do I believe CGC will survive? No, but if he does, that is a good thing.
I disagree about 6 wins. If we get mutilated in multiple losses, or we play non-disciplined FB when we win & lose, or coaching decisions appear to cost us multiple games, 6 may not be enough.
5 is the decision point. Less than this definitely gone, greater definitely here. The decision at 5 depends on how good/ bad we look in losses and, more importantly, how recruiting is stacking up.There's what I "hope" to see and than what I "expect" to see. I hope we win 7-8 games and pull out of this tail spin. My expectation is we win 4, maybe 5 games and Geoff will be fired.
And just a thought...is it possible that the team WANTS a change and doesn't come out fighting for CGC in that first game?
