Having determined that 30 minutes after Saturday's game was not too soon to continue campaigning for postseason recognition, Hill stood among reporters, venting preemptive outrage. "Why should a school from the WAC get shut out," he said, "if we've beaten some of the best teams in the country on the road?"
Hill has come a long way since that morning five years ago when he showed up at Carr's front door. In addition to Hill's ugly suitcase, the family still remembers his vow to David before leaving: "We will play big-time football."
That he's kept that promise is not really a secret.
