Whitlock, is a former MAC Conference guy who still follows the conference very closely.
Here are some audio clips of what he had to say:
#1- Is Al Golden a good coach?
#2 - Al Golden dealing with expectations.
#3 - His explanation of Golden's success in the MAC
#4 - Can Golden win in a more ideal football setting like Miami?
Now, I understand that fans don't want to hear someone with an opposing view. You need to be open minded here. Whitlock, has knowledge of that conference. Which, is more than you can say for most who follow college football.
I am a fan of Kirby Hocutt. I make no bones about it. I have faith that he's done his due diligence here. I hope in the end he made the right hire.
