So, I came across this on a message board…
… and that got me to wondering about Dennis Dodd’s piece on Harsin, where he noted,
If that was the picture of a lifer, it wasn’t a bad one. Harsin comes to The Plains as the ninth-winningest active FBS coach, (with more than one year experience) having won 76% of his games. The issue with that stat is Harsin will now play three coaches annually with better career winning percentages (Texas A&M’s Jimbo Fisher at 76.8%, Georgia’s Kirby Smart at 78.8% and Saban at 80%).
Hmmm. Something doesn’t appear to add up. Aha! There’s an eighth year.
The comparison is ludicrous enough on its face, but to crimp his track record to make the numbers fit is even cringier. Although I suspect it’ll become a moot point after the 2021 season.
