This will be difficult because the evidence for an improving football team is virtually non-existent. The truth looks to be that Dimel will get at least a 3rd year whether we like it or not so here is the best I can do to play devil's advocate: 1. His time at Wyoming has been trashed a bit on this board since he took over a Cowboy team that had gone 10-2 the year before he arrived. Tiller, the Wyoming coach, left to take the Purdue job and took his staff with him. The team that won those 10 games lost tons of seniors as Dimel arrived. The program at Wyoming was hurt by the fact that even with 10 wins, there was no bowl invitation. The athletic department staff stated that that would be used against them in the recruiting wars, "even if you win 10 games at Wyoming, no bowl wants you" was the fear and it was used according to the Wyoming folks. So in retrospect, Dimel's 3 straight winning seasons at Wyoming were something of a success that can be pointed to. 2. His time at Houston is another story. The coach he replaced, Kim Helton, was there for 7 years and had 5 losing seasons. One trip to the Liberty Bowl. Fired after his second winning season, 7-4. Dimel then claimed the program was in worse shape that he was told and obviously things did not go well. His last season was 5-7 and he had some very good recruiting classes. Would his 4th year have been a good one? We will never know but things were trending up. 3. His time at UTEP has been horrible to say the least. Starting off with a loss to fcs team NAU set the tone. Some very competitive games his first season with the win over Rice on the road and games vs NMSU, UTSA, UNT and LT that were close enough to go either way. Looked like he was making things a bit better. Then this year happened. It's true that the first recruiting class was not that great and that's partially the fault of the new early signing period. Maybe a good recruiting class this year, his redshirt program and a few good transfers will help for next season and we will see some progress. Ok, that's all I got. Let me have it with your insults and bashing. I feel I deserve it. I'm old enough that I will forget what you said shortly after you say it, so it won't matter much.
