Don’t forget the on the court/field stats. No postseason play since 2013 of any kind in Men’s bball. No NCAA appearances since 2005.
Football 17-41 record for Lambert speaks I think for itself. The even more troubling stat is in the last three years we have 3 home wins. One each season 2015: Presbyterian 2016: Elon 2017: UAB
While UAB is a good win, it was a fluke and the other two aren’t FBS teams. Niners over the last three years have left a home football game happy just three times. That is sad.

Current Sagarin football 195
There are 130 FBS teams…[/quote]
Going to add some trend lines, but 2016 ‘over performance’ looks in line with the progression of year 1 and 2. We did join FBS, so that’s some of it.
Looking at Sagarin, we didn’t so much overperform last season as much as we underperformed the season before. We WAY underperformed this past season.
And to add to this, she made the baseball team raise their money for an indoor hitting facility, and then immediately allocated over a million bucks for an indoor facility for the softball team.[/quote]laughable. Give to the team to that produces 0 revenue. Take from the team that does. Fuck her.
I was a freshman in 1990…so my first 15yrs as a Niner was amazing.
Excellence was the standard and all I knew…for 15 years.
And where the program has been over the last 9 is unfathomable to me. That we could fall that far…and for that long.
But…I’m telling you…the #1 influential factor is Conference Affiliation. We will not fix our competitive woes longterm if we do not figure out a way to position ourselves for a move to at least the AAC. It is so much larger than changing coaches or even the AD or Chancellor…unless a new AD or Chancellor could get us into a better Conference. Look at the chart…Conference affiliation and RPI are directly correlated.
