An easy schedule makes a lot of coaches look good.
I've pointed out some of Arians' red flags. So when I discredit Arians' 2012 success, it's because I don't believe 2012 showed enough for me to make those red flags go away.
Yup. I think he'd be an adequate stop-gap/consi prize. I'm not sure we reach a SB with Arians or he stays for a long time. However, having him could be exceptionally beneficial to Geno/Wilson.
