I think there is a bit of truth to this. I do think Frost was building slowly for the future. I think coming in he had no clue the dumpster fire he was walking into on a player mental and emotional level. Once here he saw and realized that wasn't going to be fixed in a season or 2. Most players need to be his to erase the negative mindset and attitudes on the team. I think he didn't want' to "waste" his young guys especially those who weren't quite ready maybe physically or mentally. This would just add to the problems. So he played guys like Wandale who were strong enough physically and mentally. He saved/RS all others for the future. I honestly believe he knew these first 2 years could be rough but was willing to sacrifice short term for long. Now that being said. I don't think he is safe for 5 years no matter what. I think he has to show he can put together a competent team this year and at the very very least get to bowl. Probably closer to 7 or 8 wins to take the heat off. If he has 4 losing season I would bet there is almost no chance he makes it to year 5. I wonder has there ever been a p5 coach (in the last 50 years) who has had 4 losing seasons and been retained for the 5th? To add to that question if there has did they suddenly flip it around year 5 or 6 and turn into a championship level coach. If no that probably says all we need to know about keep Frost into year 5 with 4 losing seasons.
