Jarvis passed on three years ago?

Good article about Jarvis and what he can do for FAU. SI also reports FAU passed on Jarvis three years ago in favor of Doherty. Was he ever a serious candidate for the position?

No…he states he wasn't serious because the probabtion was not served yet…merely testing the waters…However, he was interviewed at FAU…

Probation?  I though he was found guilty of not knowing.  In a sense we all are guilty of that crime virtually all our lives.  I personally can't think of any reason why Jarvis' case for hire improved over the past 3 years.  Either the decision not made then but made now was motivated by the PC elitists, or they dismissed him for articificial reasons.

FAU had to know that MD would move on a good offer, they just didn't think it would come after 1 season.  His was a PR hire.  The real question was why didn't they interview Jarvis when Dougherty left?  Or were they afraid to be indicted for going after another "big time" coach who might disappoint like MD did.

Just think, if FAU had cojones 3 years ago, according to popular opinion, we could be on our 3rd consecutive 20 win season, since MJ can recruit circles around RW  ;D, we clearly would be sitting with an even stronger returning squad, well on our way to providing Jarvis his 4th 100 win school .

All I'm saying is that if he is right for us now, he was right for us then and there is only one place to lay the blame.
