Comparing any coach's success vs. London's is so wrong

That's like saying Dave Leitao was a solid coach for us because he outpaced Pete Gillen's win %...

Let's look at Groh vs. Bronco:

Groh: 59-53 (.527 winning %), 5 bowl appearances in 9 seasons
Bronco: 36-38 (.486 winning %), 4 bowl appearances in 6 seasons

Bronco would have to go 23-15 (about 7.5 wins per season over the next 3 seasons) just to catch Groh's win %. Is that what we're looking for in a coach? Groh's success?

Bronco seems to have been the right guy to get us out of the London mess. He just seems to have a Groh-like ceiling. Is that what we're looking for? I was kinda hoping for more. Someone who beats VA Tech 50% of the time, as a starting point.
