Get behind the Jeff Scott hire

Recommended Posts

New member here and while I've visited and read the board for a long time, and have seen what I call "TheBullspen Grumpy Old Men",  I'm still shocked at some of the negativity around Jeff Scott. If you look around the Twitterverse and fansites, this guy is at the onset, a great hire. Clemson insiders and fans alike are lauding this hire for us if it is indeed what unfolds. 

For everyone pining for Leavitt, stop and go get some help. You all sound like jilted lovers who just can't seem to get over that first love. As a kid, going to USF games, I was in awe of The Jim and how he built this program. His passion on the sidelines is what made me fall in love with USF Football and later attend and graduate from USF. As much as we'd all like to dream of this triumphant return and applaud his 8-9 win seasons, it wasn't going to happen. That ship has sailed and the sooner we as fanbase move on, the better. 

My point is, lets get behind the new leader. All we can do as fans is show the new HC that we're ready to support.

And for anyone trashing the fact that Scott has never been a HC, so what?! A lot of coaches who came into programs and found abundant success had never been HC's before. It's a silly way of measuring what you think will be his future success. The guy is coming from a 1st class program, mentored by a FL football family and groomed under Dabo, recruits FL, AND is an offensive-minded coach. LOL, the guy literally checks all the boxes.

Also of note, you know this guy wants to make a mark and I'd be willing to bet he won't be outworked when it comes to shmoozing donors and injecting life into this program we all love.

Thanks for having me. Go Bulls! 

great first post. couldn't agree more

Let’s just say we are being very cautious to get our expectations up right now. We been through too many promising hires only to fall flat on our face. Think we need to give him three seasons before making any judgments because USF is a mess right now

Well here's a run down. We will get behind him, although you will continue to see "we should have hired Leavitt" until you leave this place. Then when he gets his first loss, you will see seven threads about why we should cut bait and fire him.........it's fun around here.

Welcome to the board. Don’t mind the grumpiness it’s will ware off. Hopefully some winning will cure that. There is some butt hurt about CJL, but many knew that was a pipe dream. When announced I know he’ll get support, but you have to understand the reticence here. We’ve made a couple of “good” hires that haven’t panned out so some are hesitant. I think a lot of us think MK knows what he’s doing and we’ll be fine. So pull up a chair and enjoy the ride. We’ve got a new coach and things should get interesting pretty quickly. Go Bulls!
