"It wasn't always this way. At first, I enjoyed the Amato era. I liked Philip Rivers. But then State fans got confused about Amato's mission. He was hired to lead the program to national prominence, but State fans seemed to decide that hiring Amato was in and of itself enough to make the program nationally prominent. They started talking like Amato was going to lead them back (emphasis on back) to a place they deserved to be, rather than elevating them to new heights."
