  1. Crazy how it's the WR/passing game coordinators at LSU everyone is fawning over. Almost like there is more to coaching than calling plays
  2. Too bad we will never get the right OL for pro style football here. Btw, trolling
  3. Load of crap. Oregon was glad to be rid of him and if he left of his own will he wouldn't be getting a buyout. Taggart didn't bring him to Tallahassee as DC. The new staff in Tallahassee had no interest in retaining him. FAU was his only real option

  5. Better than here? We should only hire people who are too good for the job but come anyway?
  6. but you don't know those guys other opportunities nor what we are actually going to pay them yet. why wouldn't they be up for more money based on their performance. just because they didn't get the same positions at Ole Miss does not mean they are not/ would not be coveted by other programs and for other positions.
  7. I want to call you captain obvious so bad for this but USF has paid millions of dollars to people who don't get it, so you get a pass
  8. Basically we can hire coaches who A. have had success in equal roles at lower levels, B.success in lower roles at equal or higher levels, C. success in equal or higher roles at equal or higher levels yet available due to circumstances, D. or coaches who failed at higher levels. We could find plenty of examples of successes and failures from each group. Tell me why they are a bad hire not just point out that they are from one of the groups that they are of course going to fall in to FAU just smashed one of the top teams in our conference. Other than ego why would we not have wanted to be FAU North this year. Theoretically they will eventually have better talent here too.
  9. According to that link, "Cornerbacks coach Jason Jones and safeties coach Wes Neighbors left with former defensive coordinator Glenn Spencer to join the South Florida staff." is that official?
  10. I won't say he hasn't been successful but it's not like he has even won CUSA since leaving here, he just got his first ten win season ever in Div 1a, and btw la tech was in okay shape when he took the job. In his time at La Tech - Marshall, ECU, Rice, WKU, Old Dominion, FAU, and UAB managed ten win seasons before he did. FAU managing a worst to first turnaround, old dominion moved up from FCS and UAB literally not fielding a team for a couple years before they did. So we aren't talking about a guy who wins 12-13 games a year in lower conferences. Everything in his career says he would be at best a 7-6 coach here in this conference on average. Put the academic restrictions in there as well as a lot of negative recruiting momentum with the crumbling Big East, a few bad breaks on the field, and you got yourself a 3 win coach. Adds up to me
  11. Well, Jim might have been the difference for that Colorado staff had he stayed.
  12. It really does come down to this to me. There is some unpacking you can do behind that but I can never figure out how a coach does not bring in one true QB prospect a year at least until you have 3 that you feel good about. We got one QB and one project Ath/QB in 3 recruiting classes and he had to notice from day one that we only had one legit qb on the roster when he arrived. Not going to knock the one he did get but you have to bring that kid(prospect) in every year and increase your chance of one developing into a quality starter.
  13. It wasn't even a matter of keeping them eligible when they got here, we were not taking kids based on some unclear criteria that was above and beyond what was required.
  14. They were particularly tough on academics while he was here.
