  1. because he didn't have a single winning year at the wealthiest program in the country. the only program to have their own espn channel.
  2. I started one back then. Never liked the Strong hire. Wanted Scott all along.
  3. Good article on Austin. https://sports.yahoo.com/the-winless-browns-cut-him-now-hes-a-super-bowl-champ-214949083.html
  4. they were on probation nobody in their right mind would take a job when the school is on probation. Shula was a QB there and they still fired him. he has never had a HC job again. it was career suicide as far as being a HC and Leavitt knew it.
  5. the alabama job was just as a placeholder while they were on probation. Mike shula took it and went 10-2 in his 3rd year and was fired. that place was a mess Moore praised Shula on Monday for providing "stability for our program through four years of NCAA probation" that ends Feb. 1, 2007. https://www.espn.com/college-football/news/story?id=2677110
  6. Fresh start with new coaches he can mold into his way of thinking. not some old timer who is set in his ways. He has been training his entire life to be a head coach and has learned from the best From bowden all the way to Dabo. He doesn't need a mentor. I like it.
  7. clemson has never had a dominant o-line. read up on their offense. like many have said they don't run a lot of plays with 5 and 7 step dropbacks expecting a pocket to form. they get the ball out quick to their athletes. you can't just say pro-style or spread without understanding there are nuances for both.
  8. those videos were hilarious. you could do the same with alabama and all their drops and missed blocks throughout a game. they did all they could to defend the terrible coaching.
  9. clemson has never been known for a dominant o-line. I agree that we need WRs and athletes that we can get into space. The problem: Clemson has never really mastered the “smashmouth” dimension of the smashmouth spread. They’ve always been at their best at spreading the ball around to speedy skill players and winning matchups on the perimeter. They aren’t stocked with the sorts of OL, TE, or FBs to consistently overpower. https://www.sbnation.com/college-football/2018/9/27/17900934/trevor-lawrence-clemson-new-starter-quarterback
  10. interesting article on the clemson offense and how it evolved with the different QBs. Clearly shows they are willing to adapt offense to players skill set.They have never had a dominant o-line either. https://www.sbnation.com/college-football/2018/9/27/17900934/trevor-lawrence-clemson-new-starter-quarterback
  11. the coaches were the sole reason for the dropoff. only listened to 20 minutes and all I heard was about the difference in culture between strong and taggart and the fact that florida athletes( linemen) are smaller and more athletic and are better suited to running the spread. obviously we saw the culture change and saw which coach was more successful in their approach and i agree wholeheartedly with his 2nd claim.
  12. we showed him. we built a powerhouse o-line after he left......
  13. D finished 76th in scoring defense. the only reason anyone thinks they were anything but mediocre is because our offense was so terrible. after year 3, with the focus on defense with a defensive head coach, you need to be somewhere in the top 30 at least. I'll pass. Like our old coach loved to say "we are in need of a good washing" . we need to get the stink of failure off this program.
  14. agreed. it's quite obvious the difference between this guy and strong
  15. sorry. just pointed out your math might be off. didn't mean anything by it. obviously you do it for the love of the game. it's unfortunate that teachers and coaches are underpaid.
  16. If you got into for the money then you may want to rethink it. kind of like teaching history
  17. sorry didn't mean to offend you. just thought the math might be a little off
  18. I'm sure you put in a lot of time but I can't imagine it's 48 hours a week 52 weeks a year.
  19. you worked 2500 hours at it? That's like 48 hours a week for an entire year.... lol
  20. I get that but I don't see him jumping to a middle of the road P5 program. I imagine job security is a big deal to him after what his dad went through. Winning here on a consistent basis is easier than winning at any of 40 P5 programs and we pay $2.5M+ now. He won't leave for a job like Vandy, Purdue, etc. Taggart doesn't leave for Oregon if we paid him $2.5M+.
  21. He saw what happened to his Dad when he took the south carolina job. pretty much ended his career. I think he would only leave for an elite job
  22. I think he knows how good he could have it here for a long time. Again I don't think he leaves for anything other than a top 2 or 3 job in any P5 conference. I don't think it takes him very long to turn things around here but I don't see him leaving very soon either.
  23. I don't think he will be in a hurry to leave. He waited for the right opportunity the first time. His Dad left FSU for South Carolina job when they moved to the SEC. Basically ended his career. I think he will only leave if it is for a top 15 P5 program with a realistic shot at winning on a regular basis.
  24. absolutely. plus strong saw nothing but obstacles to success(no facilities, lack of fans, etc)and used them as an excuse for his failures.
