This is at the core of the manny love IMO. If he had simply beaten fiu, duke and la tech, no one would be singing his praises about an improvement this year.This is true, but it's a joke that Manny will be judged by the low bar he set for himself last year.
So going 6-7 in 2019 actually HELPED him gain job security. Imagine that.
Have you guys not seen this movie before? Manny will be expected to win the Coastal by year 4, and then he will be fired. Then a Temple/Miami asst will replace him.
Now you can all live your lives and stop worrying about how this will end.
