Many noted his "acceptance speech" where he thanked 60 or so people seemed to indicate he thought he had already reached his goal.
If I recall correctly, the choice was pretty widely panned very early. I know there is a thread hanging around giving him a grade after one year, and it was not complimentary to say the least.
