but if you factor an outsider's perception of how difficult the Tulane job is, wouldn't they see a winning season and minor Bowl win.......would they see this season as an equivalent 8-9 win season anywhere else?

and is age really a factor? Who sticks around for more than 5-6 years anymore?

Age clearly isn't a factor in some situations. Check out Les Miles and Mack Brown getting gigs. But WF going 7-6 isn't an eye opener. When we win 9 actual, not pro-rated, games, then people will start to notice and if somebody wants him bad enough they will overlook his age.

GB I do think people thinkk 6 here is equal to 8 somewhere else. He'd need 10 somewhere else, 8 here. And yes, age is a factor.

OK I'm going to try one more time :lol:

an outsider sees the massive dumpster fire that was Tulane Football for a VERY long time (have we forgotten how truly bad it was?) and here comes Willie Fritz who takes over, shows steady progress every year he's here culminating in a winning season and Bowl win...........and he's not worth an interview? Especially if he goes somewhere where maybe its easier to in and make progress more quickly?

Why? 11 here equaled 8 at Clemson.

I think the style of play he brings may be a hurdle as well. Parting with Ruse and getting a balanced(non-option perceived) attack may change that perception.

Agreed, and that will have to be shown on the field.
