What exactly did Matt Rhule excel at in college?

I mean, he beat a #21 ranked ECU by a whopping 10 points after they turned the ball over 5 times and ECU outgained them 428 total yards to 135 total yards.

That's one of his two ranked wins.

The other ranked win (vs. #20 Navy) was a similar story. Overall yardage was close, but Navy turned it over 3 times to Temple's 0.

So in Rhule's two ranked wins, the turnover margin was +8. 😂

He was just that.

We have to remember, though, that the teams seeking coaches were all really, really bad teams. We were one of the least bad teams. 

That's a lot of organizations with terrible ownership groups, bad track records, decades of losing, sometimes even potential curses (looking at you Lions). If you think about it, a wise team would avoid the coaching candidate most wanted by the bunch, unless they were a proven NFL coach (and there were none in the race).

This may be how eternal bottom feeding teams in a parity league stay at the bottom. We pretty much went all in on the most popular candidate among the special ed students at the NFL school. And here's where we ended up.

I always saw it as a boom or bust pick. Especially when he hired solely college coaches.

We have seen far better college coaches with more success in harder conferences suck in the NFL.  I think he's just better dealing with kids then full adults in the NFL maybe.  Also think the dude has a silver tongue and sold himself well.  Hurney probably bought it hard.

What did he do in college to impress Tepper so much? It sure as poo isn't showing up in the NFL. Is it recruiting????

He is a programme builder. He turned around two absolute dumpster fires in short order by improving the culture and recruiting well. We've already seen what a good eye for talent he has in the last two Drafts. 

He's not an X's and O's guy - he leans on his co-ordinators to do that.

With that in mind, he needs to do the right thing and fire Joe Brady. The guy is terrible at his job and is dragging this team down.

One of the teams he was the HC for was Temple. Temple.

The other was Baylor post-scorched earth rape scandal. 

Yeah, I'm not holding his lack of ranked wins against him. Especially considering he left both jobs just as he got the teams rolling.

Keep believing, man. This ship is taking on water faster than the Titanic.
