Re: The Coaching Carousel

I'm trying to stay as close to developments on this as I can ( I'm sure you can imagine ).

If I hear anything else; I'll do what I can to post it. Though, I've been asked to wait, in some instances, until after certain deadlines have been met, and otherwise published.

Re: The Coaching Carousel

All right, this is what I have: The University of Miami's search for a new football coach shifted away from Jon Gruden and toward Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen and other candidates Wednesday following Athletic Director Kirby Hocutt's morning meeting with Gruden in Tampa. Gruden officially withd...

I thought you said back in 2002, that it took your friend Jim Beam to help get you trough some of those close one's.

Re: Hawaii leaving WAC....joining MWC

TCU looking out for itself, naw, can't be. Not a program, who just a few years ago, was cycled through conferences in 3 years before settling into the Mountain West. I think it is a good fit, personally; TCU has always been out for themselves first, and now, they'll be in a conference de'rigueur to ...

Re: Oregon vs Oregon State: Civil War Game

Of course, we can't let the Mountaineer fans hear us talking about roadkill ... they'll show up with a rotisserie spicket & Tabasco sauce. :lol:

Re: Top 10 vs Current Top 25 teams

Who is Colley?

I think that question says it all.

Re: Oregon vs Oregon State: Civil War Game

Maybe we should just refer to it as the Domestic War ... then again; beavers and ducks aren't particularly domesticated animals .

Could name it the Feral War, or possibly the Northwestern Roadkill War.

Re: Hawaii leaving WAC....joining MWC

That does hold true for the first year; after that, the current win / loss record is the measuring stick. TCU has to maintain their current winning percentage for it to carry over. Right now, I'd say they are likely to do so. However, if it winds up adversely effecting the rest of the Big East ( aga...

Re: Hawaii leaving WAC....joining MWC

Well, the Big East has already expressed an interest in bringing back Temple. So I suppose it all depends on how slighted Temple feels. The whole, not given a chance to build along side the other Conference teams who stuck it out. You always stress the importance of how being in an automatic qualify...

Re: Hawaii leaving WAC....joining MWC

I'm not convinced the Big XII folds: Nebraska turned into something over the last two years, and have historically been good in the modern era. But losing Colorado doesn't hurt at all. If anything, with the Big East looking to expand into a 12 team conference; that alone may give the Big 12 another ...

Re: Boise - Nevada

Due to some internet sites, I watch quite a few teams from the west play. ( I actually stayed up to watch the Fresno State / Idaho game, even though it didn't end until 2:30 a.m. ) I get to see a good number of MAC teams play, because they are regional. I also see several Big East games; I think it ...

Re: Urban Decay

So were Miami's; and they haven't produced in 6 years. You can't rely solely on the recruiting class, hoping for something big, unless you are reproducing that talent level. When your recruiting classes have been "Though the Roof", you shouldn't fade, you should thrive; the whole, not rebu...

Re: I couldn't................

I was under the impression that the Big Ten title game was going to be held in Indianapolis ... Colts stadium.

Hell, why not?

The Hoosiers will never get there; may as well have at least one game in Indiana that means something.
