So I have to believe that in his most private moments, Tom asks himself a lot of questions about how football got to where it is. In particular, I think two questions would be rattling around his mind:
1) How did I make the assessment of Kragthorpe's skills that I did? How was I so off base?
This is interesting given that he's been so good at picking coaches in all the other sports. To fail this badly in one of the two sports he can't afford to fail in demands some analysis.
If you assume that Tom is supporting K in order to demonstrate his level of commitment for his NEXT hire, then this question comes to mind:
2) What do I do to ensure that the next coach I pick doesn't give me the same result?
Since Tom is not posting on here (to our knowledge), how would y'all answer the above?
