A project management golden rule is to judge all project results only against the expected project outcome.

Ray Anderson set the bar:
"Our goal for this football program is to reach unprecedented heights, and therefore we need to find a way to operate more innovatively and efficiently than we have in the past," Anderson said.

Anderson went on to say that 7 win seasons and Sun Bowls would no longer be acceptable.

Therefore, talk of NFL coaches, drafted players, ranked recruiting classes, etc may be components of success - but they do not define success. Anderson has staked his reputation on ASU dominating the PAC, winning lots of games and routinely being invited to major bowls. Any future discussions about improved recruiting, academic success, great team character, trajectory, etc are no more than misdirection and an attempt to rationalize a new definition of success. But the fans must keep our eyes on the original targets of wins and major bowls. We must keep Anderson accountable to his original commitment. Therefore, I donít care if Edwards wins lots of games and goes to major bowls using 2 star players and walk-ons. But make no mistake, Anderson is on the hook for *Unprecedented Heights*.

Anderson is accountable for lots of wins and major bowls.
