stability is really the best thing for success, imo.  anytime you have a coach who is unsure how much longer he will have his job, things just seem to slide downhill and get worse and worse. 
Underwood has shown that he is turning our program around and deserves to have the job security.  I am looking forward to being able to cheer for the same coach for many years.  Hopefully this is just the first of many extensions he and his staff will receive.  I'd be happy to be cheering on the same coach for the next 20 years, mostly because that means that our program has been successful over those 20 years.
