  1. You must be new here. Is this your first day? I don't think we've met, I'm Wooly, and this is Mohammet... Jugdish, Sidney and Clayton.
  2. I haven't seen anything that says the conference winner from 8 of 11 conferences would be granted an auto berth (berth...not birth...berth ) , which makes me think, if it did expand, it would pretty much fall to the top 8 ranked teams. I will say this. I don't hang onto every word uttered in the bowl season, but I just happened to catch some game, commentary during the half time, where the question was asked "Should the G5 have their own playoff?". Both commentators said yes. Their own little G5 playoff and champion. I mention it in passing. From December of 2018 Arguing Against Expansion...
  3. Having successfully brought both children and drunken moms to tears, I have since hung up my USF Alumni Association spurs. I really enjoyed my time with the Alumni Association; we put some fun stuff together. We sort of drifted into more of a fundraising venture, and there were some turf wars that sort of soured the experience. But, it was a good time. Tears and all.
  4. San Jose State hasn't been good at football in ages. They were good when I attended, and the bonus was that the stadium was within walking distance of my apartment. That was the days of the Pacific Coast Athletic. Those were good days.
  5. ACC (NCSU, UNC, Wake, Duke, FSU) & San Jose State (first college after getting out of the Army in California).
  6. On the field? Fail? No. In convincing the University that he should be retained, yeah, I'd say he failed at that. We can use whatever term you feel comfortable with, vis-a-vis re-hiring a coach who was dismissed or left the job. Just lemme know what term you want to use, and I'll use that going forward: https://www.tampabay.com/sports/bulls/2019/12/02/greg-schiano-is-going-back-to-rutgers-how-do-retreads-fare-in-act-ii/ https://www.tampabay.com/sports/bulls/2019/12/06/usf-football-coaching-search-our-bracket-is-complete/ https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/do-retread-coaches-like-jon-gruden-ever-work-out/ https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2814555-nfl-rumors-latest-buzz-surrounding-top-2019-head-coach-candidates
  7. No. Retread is a repeat performance. Just like the Army. The polite phraseology for someone who got out and came back in is "prior service". But in the barracks, the term is 'retread'. But now that I think about it, does not getting fired, regardless of how palatable you may or may not find the case, constitute failure? I would say so. Congratulations on your winning record, but - see, we have this policy of not peeing in the punch bowl - and having done that, stop by the receptionists on the way out for a box for your personal effects. Oh, and sign this. And initial that part about not being re-hired. Thanks. You can keep the pen.
  8. Well, if we're using your criteria, the feel free to put me in the UCF Fan column. As hard as it is to not like a team that is recognized as national champions, it's even harder to embrace retreads.
  9. Well, I reckon this is where we diverge. I'm voting: No CJL 2.0, No CWT 2.0. 'Cause I never was any good at that whole break-up-to-make-up routine.
  10. No retreads. No apologies. No lipstick on pigs. I think this is a case of using the words 'possible' and 'probable' interchangeably. This board just loves, loves, loves 'the good ole days' and how phenomenally great and wonderful Jim was. But, there's been a whole lotta water under the bridge since he was cut loose. I've not kept my thumb on the pulse of this, as some have, but has Jim Leavitt, in 2019, expressed a documented interest in returning to USF? And just because contracts can be modified by our razor-sharp legal staff...well...that's not necessarily an enticement, now is it? But this is 'murika and we all have the god given right to wallow in our fantasies until the cows come home.
  11. But that doesn't make it any less of a reality.
  12. Unless the person on the other end of the phone was speaking very loudly and that guy was holding the phone away from his head. That could happen. You know how loud coaches are.
  13. Yeah, but this is the interwebs, and fantasy is what gets some people through their day. On account o'reality - just not that pleasurable.
  14. According to Wikipedia - the oracle of all oracles - it looks like his coaching career at ASU ended in '79 (firing) - and the next coaching entries are his time in the pros. It says ASU forfeited their wins in the '79 season under Kush. Was there a fire-n-rehire prior the the '79 season?
  15. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Kush Hmmmm...I may have misread, but it looks like he left ASU for Pitt, didn't dig it, voluntarily returned to ASU in '69. Then this happened: "The most dramatic charge was that Kush had punched Rutledge in the mouth after a bad punt in the October 28, 1978, game against the Washington Huskies. During the next few weeks, overzealous fans turned things ugly when the insurance office of Rutledge's father suffered a fire and the family's attorney received two death threats. On October 13, 1979, Kush was fired as head coach for interfering with the school's internal investigation into Rutledge's allegations. Athletic director Fred Miller cited Kush's alleged attempts to pressure players and coaches into keeping quiet. " Did he get rehired at Arizona after '79? 'Cause I don't see him coaching there after '79. Looks like he went to the pros.
