Almost sure Jimmy went 6-6 his first year and the rest is history.

I’m content to get to the ACC championship game and win the Natty the following year. We must keep this Top 10 class intact and follow up with one more. That’s how JJ did it.👍🙌❤️
Who would the Lane train equivalents have been saying back then? Hire Lou Holtz?

Historically Howard , Dennis and Jimmy needed time to knock it out of the park. Mario is off to a gigantic start in recruiting. It’s all good.🫠 What a lot of our followers don’t know it was NFL Coach Lou Saban that turned this program around.

Except JJ was forced to keep Schnelly's coaches his first year, coaches who didn't all share the same philosophy he had from a coaching standpoint. The next year he brought in his guys, and the rest is history. Mario brought in his own guys, some after a painstakingly long search.

Jimmy had a bunch of leftovers from the previous regime who weren't too happy he got the job... including Tom Olivadatti(?)

That's because JJ wanted an Upfield Explosive DLine...not that BS 3-4 Olividatti wanted. The 5-2 base that Howard ran was called Monster.

Doesn't matter... when coaches don't see eye to eye, performance suffers. You can't have JJ's guys vs Schnelly's holdovers and expect to do well.

Heck, Tom was on his way down from the booth when the Maryland QB threw that hail mary to beat us... Jimmy wasn't thrilled, to say the least. He cleaned house.
