    Very, very bad.

    (They did get a lot of breaks from crap officiating. And their seemingly miraculous sudden knowledge of which play we were calling sure didn’t hurt.)

    They may not have been Sav state, but they sure weren’t far from that level.
    The one time State played SSU was in 2010. State won 55-21, and that was also the year they lost to Lambuth.

    Then Monken had to come in and make flex option players out of them

    2010, 10-5, SoCon 2nd, Made semi Finals
    2011, 11-3, SoCon 1st, Made semi finals
    2012, 10-4, SoCon 1st, Made Semi Finals
    2013 7-4 & beat Florida

    I think if you add up the wins they are almost double the 4 years before.
    I'm a huge monken fan but will point out that Hatcher and Monkens first seasons wouldve both ended at 7-4 if not for expanded playoffs by the time 2010 came around. And i bet you not many fcs teams wanted to play that 07 team in the playoffs... many of us even argue the kick was good and they should've been socon champs.

    But it's neither here nor there at this point.

    You also must account for Monken's playoff wins against FCS playoff teams that proved they were the best of the best in FCS which Hatcher never did!
    The 2007 team was ranked #17.
    The 2010 team was ranked #20.

    2007 team was also a missed FG away from a conference championship.

He said they became better football players under Fritz and were more prepared on Gameday but then they played with the toughness they learned under Monken.

    This sounds about right. Didn't CCL make a similar comment about CWF when asked what he learned from the different HC's he worked with?

    What would Monkens tenure have looked like if he didn't bring Jaybo Shaw with him?

    Discuss.

    I don't understand what you mean. You don't have to buy it but it's true. When the playoffs were 16 teams 7-4 teams (like our 07 team under hatcher) didn't make the playoffs. it expanded to 20 and our 7-4 team under Monken made it. If not for that expansion the 10 team is at home with no opportunity to win those additional games. Now the fact they went out amd beat those teams I'm not taking away from them. Once again, im a huge monken fan.

    Those are facts whether you believe them or not. It's also a fact that we loss the conference title on a missed fg vs furman that many fans to this day think was good.

    Everyone finds it believable other than people who don't care about facts when it comes to Fritz.
