Can someone explain to me why I shouldn't be eligible for Clemson in Crum? FYI, the job was a "keep looking", which I translate to mean it is viewed as both a "step backwards" with a corresponding loyalty hit if I get it, but at the same time it is a longshot job to land. I don't really understand how both of those conditions can coexist, but in HD apparently they do.
I get that the SEC has been a weak conference (which is a lot of why I applied to Clemson...the SEC postseason recruiting money sucks and I can't compete for top players there), but come on! I finished the last 5 seasons ranked. This most recent season I was 30-1 (against an admittedly weaker than expected schedule) and ranked #10. I've gotten to the 2nd round of 5 straight NTs. If you can't qualify for a job like Clemson (which is A prestige right now, not A+) with a resume like that the jobs logic is insanely broken. What am I missing?
