    Appears to have gained entry into the College Football hall of fame


    Regardless of the clown behavior he has exhibited in recent times or my person opinion of him after his career ended... there is no doubt that he deserves to be there as a result of his coaching resume. Congrats Coach McCartney

    Absolutely earned. He rescued a program from oblivion and for a 6-year stretch there wasn't anyone better.

    ^^^ While I understand your sentiment, part of what made him a great recruiter and team builder included that agenda.
