  1. Houston didn't look comfortable in Tampa. I think the crowd got to them. No one is used to that. Look for them to bounce back offensive with their big dog on full rest on the the mound. Would be a very special win if they can pull it off.

    Baseball news.....the Bulls have scheduled a 3 game weekend series  in Gainesville. First time I recall games against the UF/FSUs of the world happened outside of the 1 game weekday baloney. 

    That will be fun.... Probably more so for them though.

    I guarantee the fact that he wasn't offered the job wasn't due to salary. I bet the first thing his people asked before even taking an interview was for a salary range.

    No you can't. You  want to believe you can, but you can't. It also goes far and beyond salary, there's perks and facility commitments that coaches might want and so fourth. Not all of which is discussed until at or after the interview. There are also numerous things that can happen after the interview that can change what a coach might want to leave. Bottom line is there s nothing about Jeff Scott's South Alabama interview that carries any weight as to his qualifications as a head coach. 

    Very few big time coordinators get top level p5 jobs. Look how many AAC coaches have gotten good P5 jobs recently.

    2 were hired without any head coaching experience last off season, it was at the schools they coordinated but that's probably the route that Scott is looking to take. 

    Taggart recruited those NFL players. part of a coach's job. didn't say he wouldn't have to come in and do his job.

    Yeah Taggart had to work to put that together, he was moving up. Not moving down to get experience. Scoot would be looking for a 1 or 2 year job not a 4 to 5

    we have a ton of potential. I'm sorry if you don't see it that way

    I'm not sure what you see every Saturday

    an article for you. this was even before Frost left for Nebraska, Morris left for Arkansas, Herman left for Texas,Rhule left for Baylor, Collins left for Georgia Tech.

    How the AAC became a launching pad for Power 5 coaches

    He views Power 5 coordinators as the key candidate pool to sustain the league and points to high-profile coordinator hires such as Norvell, Morris (Clemson), Collins (Florida), Frost (Oregon), Fickell (Ohio State) and Philip Montgomery, who coordinated Baylor's offense before taking the head-coaching job at Tulsa, where he went 10-3 last season.


    None of this has any relevance to this program at this time. Is FIU a stepping stone? because we are much closer to them than the top teams of the AAC. 


  4. He did take the interview, however why he wasn't offered the job is unknown.

    Big time coordinators get P5 jobs without dropping down all the time. It's about the fit.  

    Taggart got 10 wins with 6+ pro guys on the roster, where are they at? 

    We are a long way from being considered one of the best G5 programs. since the creation of the G5 we are the 7th best AAC team. 


    It's sad to say but we aren't really even a coveted stepping stone program anymore.

    fact is schools are not banging down Jeff Scott's door to hire him as a HC.

    first of all you have no idea the calls he has fielded over the last 5 years. You have no idea what he's asking for or how much interest in leaving he has. That's really the only fact here

    if he really wants to be a big time college head coach then he would jump at the chance to coach here.

    Big time = P5. 

    Look where Taggart and Frost are now for taking UCF and USF jobs. Heupel is the next in line for a big boy job.

    10+ wins at any g5 school will get you those opportunities. He's better off going somewhere more capable getting 10 wins. 

    we are the perfect stepping stone job and we should embrace that fact.

    Based on what? conference championships? program prestige? 

    I just hope the people in control of things aren't as limited in their thinking.

    they aren't, they understand how fluid coaching changes are and that there's a ton of grey area that leads to where a coach goes outside of what a school or the coach might want. 

    Our 2 best hires were done on the cheap. the 2 times we backed up the brinks truck and hired "named" coaches it blew up in our face.

    sorry but you are wrong. you won't even sit for an interview if there isn't a possibility for coming to an agreement on salary.

    Heupel makes $1.7M per year after reworking his original deal. Jeff Scott will not get paid that much as an unproven HC that doesn't even have a majority of play calling duties at clemson. maybe he is an assistant lifer but the fact that he interviewed at south alabama tells me otherwise.

    Not very many people will say there no shot of signing me unless they are the head coach of their dream job but that also doesn't mean the asking price isn't to high. coaches take long shot interviews all the time. You're reading into the South Alabama thing way to much. It's much more fluid process. Taggart took an interview at  South Carolina and both sides knew if wasn't happening. 

    He also makes 1 million at Clemson, you are gonna have to up that if you want him. 1.7 is a very doable asking price.

    Yes conversations but not xyz this is whats its gonna be. That's what the interview process is for. 

    Yes, they do hire consulting companies the find viable candidates for them to interview. 

    If what your are suggesting is true why doesn't every coach walk out of an interview with their deals in hand? since they already know before hand which is the best and what it will take to sign them. 

  8. 5 minutes ago, Bull94 said:

    they would know up front whether or not they could come to an agreement. don't be so naive as to think that isn't the case.

    That's just simply not true. The point of the interview is to see if the school and the coach are a good fit. There really is no reason to discuss details at the point. Especially is the school is trying convince the coach to leave the best program in the nation. Your primary goal is getting them in to talk. 

  9. Just now, Bull94 said:

    he interviewed at SOUTH ALABAMA

    you don't even take the interview if you are not interested in the job

    look what Taggart did for his career by having success here

    Sure you do, people take interviews for the experience all the time. But also in that interview you can say "this is what it's gonna take to get me to leave" which happens in interviews where a school is trying to get a hot commodity. That could cause a school to shake your hand and say thanks for coming.

    jeff scott interviewed at south alabama. he would not cost $2.5M to hire. he understands that he needs to prove himself as a HC if he wants a big boy job.

    your thinking is exactly why we are in such a terrible position. you must be one heck of a negotiator.

    no actually he hasn't. he interviewed for south alabama recently, he didn't even get offered.

    Ok, I was thinking of someone else about the positions part although he has been in the running for multiple better spots he hasn't seen an offer but that could be for a reason. IE, he ain't leaving for just any offer. Look at the longevity of that staff, they have been on top of the college football world since 2015 and have had the same coordinators the whole time. They just don't leave for any offer and it certainly wouldn't be USF.

    Jeff Scott makes $1 mil right now. He will cost $2.5 to hire. Paying off Charlie in $1 mil it $1.5 mil increments makes him unlikely. So now we are paying a coach $3.5 mil a year...ain’t gonna happen. You will need a cheap assistant or someone like Willie who will coach for $1.5 mil per year. This buyout is a killer and might keep Charlie here for one more year if he gets to four wins. 

    Unlike Bama, clemson Assistants don't leave easy. He has turned down offers for more money and better programs.

    I mean playing anyone this season could be bad with our OLine so at the least we're hopefully putting the guy out there that gives us the best shot. 

    did he last week?

    My point being, after last weeks showing, you can definitively say that JM gives us a better chance. He  is just as indecisive and does not have the arm strength for  our vertical passing game. He needs his year in the weight room and the film room. He can still save his eligibility this season and come back more prepared, keep in mind, he wasn't even a high school QB until late in his HS career so the position as a whole is still relatively new. . This is it for BB, might as well let him ride this out and take what happens.

    UCF isn't claiming to be co-CFP champions. 

    The fact that ESPN and every other school that claims a share of a national championship defines it the same way as us should have given you pause in your confidence. 

    CPF champion is the only national champion. All ESPN is doing trying start stuff, ya kno for people like you. who can't really read the NCAA record book for what its actually saying.

    Actually, no I didn't. We've gone over this before here and footy should have known better.There is no mention of Co-Champions on Page 115. The NCAA makes it pretty clear who the Champion was. You Klowns were just recognized as the highest ranked by a wackadoodle "major selector" with a history of tomfoolery. It was still a very nice accomplishment that you all totally ****** up:

    it baffles me that UCF fans cling onto that.
