I tracked stats under Fran at one point. I think we won one game after being behind at halftime. He sucked at halftime adjustments more then just about any coach I've ever seen. Blew a lot of leads too.

Pulled up any stats on Withers yet, because they might be on par in that department if you compare their first two years side by side. 8)

I am sure it is seeing he went the nuclear option with the roster. I will have to see how it is over the same coaching time period.

Bump for this posts one year anniversary.
I am sure the numbers of 2017 make us an even lonelier in as the worst AD in all of college sports all time, but I just keep the old numbers. And i wont even comment on the current dumpster fire, but rather just the wasteland that is our history. Folks, we REALLY are on a historic run here.

I am someone who no longer has season tickets or am no longer a bobcat club member. I have had a few alumni ask why I have lost my enthusiasm. I also often see comments on the forums about how our fans ‘suck’, or we don’t ‘deserve’ a good team, or that we need to’ hang in there’, or ‘next season’.

I don’t think these people realize how incredibly bad Texas State has been. Heck, I wasn’t even sure. I really thought to myself, ‘it feels like we have been bad forever. What other teams are as bad as us? So I decided to find out. Now, no offense to women’s sports or track or even baseball about 10 years ago, but I didn’t consider them. Just the bell cow sports of football and basketball.

Here is how bad we have been in the two main college sports based on the two simplest metrics: Bowl games and NCAA appearances:
-We are 1 of 3 NCAA FBS teams to NEVER have gone to a bowl game.
-Okay, I get it, we ‘just’ moved up 5 years ago. Well, 120 OTHER programs have been to a bowl game SINCE WE MOVED UP.
-‘But as least we HAVE been to the NCAA tournament’. Yeah, but since our last appearance 264 teams have managed to sneak in. Oh, but not us.
-We last went to the big dance 20 years ago. There are kids enrolled in Texas State today, who were not even BORN yet!
-If you flip around our bottom percentiles to the top, those schools are considered to be the best programs in history. So I have no choice but to draw the conclusion that we are the one of the worst programs in history.
