Unlike Fox, Smith has a documented history of building programs from the ground up.
Apparently, another "unlike Fox" characteristic he possess is, he doesn't lose to Western. :lol:

Come on man, it’s still an absolute ridiculous statement to say is going to be one of the best coaches in the history of the school after a season. You obviously have a personal relationship with him and his family, and that’s great. I I never said we weren’t lucky to have him, I said your statement that he will be the best ever is exaggerated and ridiculous. He’ll be lucky to have a winning Record before the end of the 2021 season
My statement has and continues to be: within 20 years he will be regarded as one of the all time Best coaches to ever coach at App. Rivaling Mack Brown, Bobby Cremins, and the rest.

And no, I don’t have a longstanding relationship with KS. I’ve met him a handful of times over the last year. More importantly, I know baseball well enough to know he’s a fantastic leader on and off the Diamond. Add that to the comments from players and other experts who know KS and you start to see why I am so confident. No one. Not even Satt has the loyal following of his peers and former players like KS does. Please don’t interpret this as a swipe at Satt, I’m just pointing out why I’m so confident in KS.

OK, so Boone Goon's comment is pretty strong and I agree with the comments about why he might not make the impact to be regarded as "one of the all time greats..." (mainly because if he starts winning big he will get hired away). That being said....Why do some folks want to hang on to this comment as a point of contention? You either agree or disagree. Everyone HOPES he's successful, so at worst the comment would be hyperbolic. He certainly has an impressive track record. Why do we keep bringing this up to bicker about?

Thanks guys for the legitimate answers, I honestly didn't know we were scrambling that much. I just saw the record and was a bit concerned. I know he has history, just hope he can pull it around.

Kermit is an outstanding individual , with a proven record at lower levels. If he can’t turn this around I really don’t expect it to be done.
